What a day of English football! In all seriousness today’s games were lackluster and that’s being charitable. The Merseyside Derby ended with no goals and a number of articles like this. Chelsea bagged three points at Old Trafford thanks to a Phil Jones own goal. Rafael was sent off in the 89th minute for lashing out at David Luiz. The punishment was more for the intent than the actual pain inflicted and the ensuing melee didn’t help the Brazilian’s cause. In any case, that’s some good acting. Ben Kingsley’s Gandhi good.
Chelsea’s victory sets up a huge fixture on Wednesday, when Spurs visit Stamford Bridge.
