Grand Slam Sunday

Today was a very special Sunday as far as football and the English Premier League is concerned. Two matches, 4 giants of the game. Liverpool vs Manchester United & Arsenal vs Chelsea on the same night shown live on tv! Can’t ask for more than that if you are a football fan. Ok, so Manchester United went to Liverpool hoping to get a win and go top of the League. The two teams went at each other and Man U came out on top, winning on a solitary Carlos Tevez goal. Liverpool tried to get back into the game and although it was an entertaining match, the Red failed ton draw or win at home. Manchester went 2 points ahead of Arsenal.

That set the night for a showdown at Arsenal’s home stadium against their local London rivals Chelsea. The Blues lineup looked to be setting up for a draw but they played anything but like that. Arsenal were looking to come back from their first lost in the League at Middlesborough and to regain the league’s top post. In an exciting game, Arsenal won by a header by William Gallas. There were so  many chances for both sides and in the first half Arsenal dominated and should had scored a couple more goals. Chelsea regrouped to put up a fighting chance and troubled their cross town rivals but could not stop the Gunners from winning their first game against Chelsea in 4 seasons. So Arsenal lead the league by a single point.
