Sports Saturday #1 For 9/25/10: Another Wild Saturday In The Premier League
Photo from Premierleague.comIt's no question who Chelsea's boogeyman team is right now.
Manchester City has defeated the league leaders once again, becoming the first team to take any points away from the champions this year thanks to Carlos Tevez fine 59th minute effort to give City a big 1-0 win.
City's midfield was just "too powerful" for Chelsea as coach Carlo Ancelotti described, as both Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda had very quiet days in attack today.
But the even more eye popping result today in the league was without a doubt West Brom 3-2 shock win at Arsenal.
The rest of the results from Saturday highlight clearly how the parody in this league is growing bit by bit.
Steven Gerrard had to save Liverpool avoid defeat at home, ending their match against visiting Sunderland 2-2.
In the battle of "The Blacks", Blackburn scored a late winner to devastate Blackpool 2-1.
Probably the most boring match of the day featured Birmingham and Wigan, with both teams sharing the points in a 0-0 draw. But excitement was the case in the Fulham-Everton match, though that too ended scoreless.
And West Ham secured their first win of the season, beating 6 mile rivals Tottenham 1-0.
