EPL Week 5

Leicester vs Man Utd
The Foxes chewed off the Red Devils with a 5-3 win at their den. Nigel Pearson's side continued their attacking approach since their promotion and is the side most likely to survive the drop if they can sustain through the season.
The loss brought out the glaring "soft belly" weakness of the Red devils. The led 2-0 then 3-1 and yet succumbed finally. Van Gaal may have a big collection of attackers and midfielders but the defensive sector is woefully deficient. By fielding 3 attackers, Nigel Pearson knew exactly where their weak spot is......Smalling, Jones, Blackett will not be feared by any opponents. There must be at least one signing for the defensive position when January's window is opened but it will be tough as the suitable targets would have firmly secured by their respective clubs.
The tougher matches are coming. if the Red devils continued to leak goals this way, Champions League football will be just a dream.
Van Persie, di Maria ; Herrera scored.

West Ham vs Liverpool : 1-3 consecutive loss for the Reds, wobbly performance after a lucky 2-1 win in mid week Champions league
Villa vs Arsenal : 0-3 After a disastrous 0-2 defeat against B Dortmund in mid week, Gunners dominated perviously undefeated Villians
Spurs vs WBA : 0-1 Spurs shocked, WBA's first win of season
Man City vs Chelsea : 1-1 Lampard equalized against old club
