Mario Balotelli helped Manchester City to defend a 5 point advantage in the Barclay’s English Premier League. Newcastle wasn’t the opponent it takes to scare City. While Newcastle had opportunities to score and give the game some fire, at the end City was a number to big for United.
Mario Balotelli, Micah Richards and Sergio Aguero were the scorers today. Both, Balotelli and Aguero scored from the spot.
In the early game Arsenal had to travel to Norwich. The gunners were the dominant team but managed to put pressure on themselves as they left multiple scoring opportunities on the table. At the end the gunners won the game 2-1 with two van Persie goals. Robin van Persie has an incredible run these days and makes sure Arsenal’s climb up the table continues.
What Robin van Persie is for Arsenal, is Javier Hernandez for Manchester United. The Mexican was the man and secured United’s win with a goal in the 11th minute. United had to sweat for the win, but at the end they had three points. In three weeks nobody wants to know how the game was won.
The battle between the Manchester teams for the championship in the Premier League goes on. At this point there is no other contender in sight. All the London clubs and Liverpool have other things on their plate, besides the Premier League all day business. In the Sunday game, Chelsea and Liverpool face off and the winner will increase the chance for 3rd place behind the Manchester teams.
