How long before people start calling him the ‘Rubbish One’ as #JoseMourinho’s shocking season at #Chelsea continued to get worse as the self-proclaimed ‘Normal One’ #JurgenKlopp and his #Liverpool side powered by the brilliant little #Coutinho beat the Blues 1-3 at #StamfordBridge, leaving them rooted to 15th and now 6 defeats into the season. Many felt this game was a make or break for Jose and the next 24 hours might well decide his future. If Roman does fire him, Chelsea will likely owe Mourinho over £20+ million in termination fees. That would be a handsome little cushion to fall on as the #PSG job awaits him and the cynical amongst us would have to wonder how orchestrated this may well be!
#VanGaal and his obstinance continue to hurt the Red Devils as a piss poor #ManchesterUnited were incredibly lucky to come away with a 0-0 draw at #CrystalPalace. #LVG insist on playing #Rooney, who is certainly the worst player in the #EPL this season and gets worse by the game – he’s slow (in the 30th minute the through pass that would have had anyone decent through on goal, was too ‘heavy’ for the slow, fat Rooney to reach), he loses possession more than any other player in the league (an actual fact, not hyperbole), makes more misplaced passes than anyone in the league and more than anything else is played as the central striker, which makes the brilliant #AnthonyMartial play on the left wing and well as he does there, he’s United’s only real potent goal scorer and is thus wasted out wide, the results of which are clear to see – United haven’t scored in 3 games now, breaking an 11 year record!
#Arsenal on the other hand continue their red hot form as goals by #Giroud #Campbell and #Koscielny and some great saves by #Cech gave them a 0-3 away win at #Swansea – the effect #Cech has had on the title run of this Gunners side is incredible and leaves them in 2nd on the table, just behind #ManchesterCity on goal difference after a late #Toure penalty gave them a nervy 2-1 win against a very plucky #NorwichCity. #LeicesterCity and top scorer in the league #Vardy continued their fabulous run with a come-from-behind 2-3 win away at #WestBrom and leapfrogged #WestHam into 3rd after the hammers lost 0-2 away to #Watford.
Over in the #Bundesliga #Bayern finally dropped points in a 0-0 draw at #Frankfurt and #Dortmund’s 1-3 win away at #WerderBremen brought the title “race” to within 5 points, such is the one sided nature of the German domestic season.
#RealMadrid beat #LasPalmas 3-1 to go 3 clear of #Barcelona (for now) as the Catalans play their game against #Getafe shortly.
