Premier League: United and City win, the Reds hold Chelsea

Premier League: United and City win, the Reds hold Chelsea

Manchester United made one more stunning escape in this season’s Premier League as Aston Villa played impressively in the first half. Christian Benteke’s display in attack was brilliant, though it was Andreas Weimann who netted a ball on 45 and 50 minutes. Despite that skillful performance it was Javier Hernandez that would take the glory in the second half when the Mexican forward scored a hat trick, striking the winner just three minutes before time.

The Gunners took the lead in the game against Fulham in the first half when Olivier Giroud and later Lukas Podolski fired home. Later though Arsene Wenger’s side threw away their advantage as Dimitar Berbatov showed brilliant performance when he found the target on 29 minute and assisted Alex Kacaniklic who leveled the score five minutes before the half-time. After the break Arsenal defender Mikel Arteta brought down Bryan Ruiz inside the area and Berbatov scored from the spot-kick. The Londoners managed to level the score courtesy of Giroud and could even nick 3 points with a last minute penalty, but Arteta missed the chance.

The Citizens struggled in the game against Tottenham when the Spurs defender Steven Caulker headed home on 21 minute. Despite keeping the ball most of the time, City could not break the well-organized defense of the Spurs and it was only Sergio Aguero who scored an equalizer on 65 minute. Edin Dzeko appeared from the substitute’s bench and just after two minutes to go fired past Brad Friedel to grab a vital win for City.

Aston Villa 2-3 Man Utd

The difference between top teams and average teams is in the last 15-10 minutes. City, United, Chelsea only win several minutes from time every game! They fight till the end and they have power to play for 90 minutes
