QPR vs Man Utd : 0-2. The two substitutes saved Van Gaal's insipid team by scoring in the second half, Fellaini and James Wilson. The stubborn nature of Van Gaal was very evident as he persisted with the 3-4-1-2 formation which was not working at all. Placing di Maria in a strange position didn't help and Falcao labored in vain. Only when the subs came in and formation changed to 4-4-2 did the team played better. Why can't Van Gaal see that the men he had now would never be able to adopt his 'philosophy' at this moment? Once again De Gea saved the Devils with his solid display between the post. For how long can he continues to do it?
The chasing pack for CL qualification is closing in real fast.
Swansea vs Chelsea: 0-5 Chelsea did not have to go full throttle to thrash once pretender, Swansea 5-0. By half time, they were leading 4-0. It is a league for Jose Mourinho to lose.
Villa vs Liverpool : 0-2 the Reds are finding their form against a poor Villa team.
Spurs vs Sunderland : 2-1 A late Erikson goal gave Spurs its win as they gathered momentum.
Man City vs Arsenal : 0-2 Arsenal overcame their 4yr travel sickness against the top teams with a relatively easy win at Etihad. Santi Carzola starred in this crucial win. Jose Mourinho would be raising a glass as his side is now 5 points ahead of City and appeared to be solid and unbeatable.
