I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Kevin Mirallas steal the penalty yesterday. And from my fantasy captain, none the less?! He had to miss, it was written in the stars. The experts lashed out at him as everyone wished they could’ve heard the half time team-talk in the Everton dressing room. After the game though, which was one of the most boring experiences of my life, manager Martinez said that there was no drama involved as Mirallas was taken off at half time. I guess we have to believe him.
Let’s just forget this week’s edition of Monday Night Football, shall we? Arsenal beat City on Sunday! Who would’ve thought…Well, I have to say that the crucial penalty given at the Etihad was SOFT at best. Monreal went down rather theatrically. Anyways, City did not deserve to win, and that means Chelsea have a 3 point cushion atop the Premier League. They DID deserve to win their game against Swansea. Such quality, such beautiful football.
Southampton still looks strong as Ronald Koeman brought in fellow Dutchman Eljero Elia who in turn secured a victory at Newcastle. And what about Crystal Palace’s epic turn around at Turf Moor? Alan Pardew-effect, much?
Tonight, Liverpool take on Chelsea in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup. Can Liverpool provide an upset or will Chelsea continue their steamrollin’ season?
