EPL Week Labour Day Week

Man Utd vs WBA : van Gaal has to lift his under performing and complacent side to maintain its challenge for CL place. The thrashing by Everton should be a rude wakening call for the players. He would want to avoid a third straight defeat.
0-1 : van Gaal must be tearing his hair in wondering how his dominating side could lose to a single free kick goal. The stats : 80% possession, 26 shots at goal, 9 on target and yet lose could be some sort of statistics. Maybe next time it will be 90%! Last week, he blamed it on complacency, now it must be misfiring forwards instead of the weak defence. Van Persie, back from injury, led the line but fluffed his penalty. Even the  desperate installation of the forward line of Rooney, van Persie, Di Maria and Falcao could do nothing to prevent the Baggies from taking the points to their safety. It is now 3 defeats in succession for the Red Devils, the first time since 2001. Now, they are again contriving to let Liverpool have a glimmer of light for a CL place. Pathetic Red Devils.


Liverpool vs QPR:  Seemed to be a straight forward home win. However, with his misfiring front line, Rodgers will not be betting on that. He is still defending his uninterested, blank firing forward Mario Balotelli saying that he is value for money in a Red shirt. If he is, then the value of wearing a Liverpool shirt had dropped tremendously. What a good laugh.
2-1 : it took a barn storming performance by Stevie G to set up hopes of CL place again with this win. It brought back memories of his best years in the past. Balotelli was not even on the bench, maybe he injured himself.

Chelsea vs Palace: The crowning moment for the Blues at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard again scoring the winning goal in the 1-0 victory.
' Blue is the Colour' , the anthem to describe Chelsea season as they trudge their way to the crown. It is Jose's third for Chelsea. His critics, Pelligrini included, accused his of playing 'boring' or efficient football without any swagger. The 'Special One' would not care as his team continued to shut up their opponent with a solid defensive spine and then winning with the goal scoring of Player of the Season, Eden Hazard.

Hull vs Arsenal: After giving themselves some breathing space with a win over Liverpool, Steve Bruce side would want to grind out a result to ensure survival in the Premier League against the inform Gunners.
1-3 : Arsene Wenger could end up second best in the Premier League, possibly. This would be the best finish in 10 years.

Spurs vs Man City: Pelligrini would be wishing to maintain the challenge for the second spot and extinguishes the hopes of Spurs for a CL place.
Spurs hope for a CL place is extinguished with this loss. Aguero won the shootout with Harry Kane when he scored the only goal.

A badass idea for a jersey?
