Another Amazing Weekend Of Premier League Football
Well what an exciting weekend we have had again in the Premier League!! The match of the weekend was big spending Manchester City against 5,000 to 1 outsiders for the title at the start of the season Leicester City. Leicester had never beaten Manchester City in the Premier League before but on Saturday produced a sensational result and a superlative performance, beating them 3-1, but in all honesty if it had been 5-1 or 6-1 I don`t think Man City could have complained.
They were sucked in and then hit on the break by Leicester who tore their defence to shreds and if it wasn`t for Joe Hart the damage could have been a lot worse. The Man City midfield were absent without leave every time Leicester broke away and you would have thought the way they were set up they had never seen them play this season.
Robert Huth scored twice with the other a sublime goal from Mahrez who was a joy to behold. This win moved Leicester an incredible 5 points clear at the top of the table and 6 points clear of Man City. To make it an even better weekend for Gary Lineker another of his former clubs Tottenham Hotspur moved into 2nd place after a hard fought but well deserved 1-0 win over Watford. Spurs are looking the real deal for the first time for many years this season and they may never have a better chance of winning the title than this season.
Arsenal are level on points with Spurs in 3rd and the pressure was really on them to deliver on Sunday at Bournemouth after 3 successive blanks. They did just that and in the end ran out comfortable 2-0 winners. Manchester City are now in the final Champions League spot a point further behind with their Manchester rivals United a further 6 points behind them in 5th. United really should have won at Chelsea as they dominated the match but the Blues scored a late leveller through Diego Costa, and although Van Gaal`s team have shown an upturn in form over the last 3 games if they don`t snatch a Champions League spot it is sure to be curtains for the Dutchman. Chelsea are still languishing down in 13th place, nearer to a relegation place than a Champions league spot.
Reading up from the bottom of the table Aston Villa are propping up the rest but they did give their supporters some cheer by beating Norwich City at home 2-0. Sunderland are 2nd bottom and they also had a decent result, gaining a battling 2-2 draw at Liverpool after coming from 2-0 behind, but they are still 4 points from safety. Norwich are nestled in the other relegation place after Newcastle hauled themselves clear by beating West Brom 1-0 in Tyneside.
