Arsenal v Everton

A big match for Wenger, as he cannot afford to lose any more matches or the team may see next season’s Champions League dreams stretched to far for them to reach. Arsenal won this match last season 1 - 0. Everton opened the scoring with a goal from Osman in the 9th minute. Kirkland saving Arsenal’s closest chance in the first half giving Everton the advantage against the home team in the second half. Everton dominating the first half, lead Arsenal at the interval. Nasri of Arsenal sneakily score an equaliser in the first 5 minutes of the second half; not a deserved goal though an equaliser all the same. Arsenal during the second half seem more interested in starting a riot on the pitch than winning the game. The pressure is on for the Gunners under the watchful eye of Wenger and the Emirates stadium. Arsenal finally get their heads straight and score through Van Persie giving them the edge in the game. The three points put Arsenal in 4th place, but this could still be snatched away with a United win at home tonight. Walcott the young English striker also contributing to the 3 - 1 victory for Arsenal.

Liverpool v Wigan

Wigan opened the scoring with Zaki, but Kuyt responded before half time with the equaliser. The equaliser though sparked something in the youngster in the Wigan’s attack and he slotted away his second of the game in the seconds before the half time whistle. Kirkland keeping Wigan in the game with countless saves from the attacking Liverpool squad, surely he can’t hold out for much longer at this rate. Liverpool save themselves with a double goal in the last ten minutes, Riera with the first and then Kuyt, not to be outdone, 5minutes later giving Liverpool the victory to keep Chelsea in check on 20 points this season. Wigan lost Valencia after he got a second yellow card.

Aston Villa v Portsmouth: An uneventful first half saw the two teams go into the second half without a goal. Pompey losing Davis to a second yellow card. No impact on the result in the end as both teams leave without a goal.

Bolton v Blackburn: The visitors showing great class in the first half and Bolton definitely needs to step up a gear if they are to salvage any points from this match. The game the second game to finish without a goal.

Fulham v Sunderland: A yellow card for each team, though no goals means they walk away with a point each. This draws Sunderland level on points with Middlesbrough, though Sunderland lead the Boro on goal difference.

Overall:

14 goals between three games and 0 goals in the other three games so far today, which way will United fall? So far today we have had at least one booking in every game today, including 2 red cards. Only the United game left can United and West Brom go for a whole 90minutes without a single booking?
