The familiar cry from the crowd was duly heard across the Premier League this weekend. Newcastle’s Steven Taylor was the first one off picking up his second yellow card after 81 minutes in Saturday’s early clash against Chelsea. Toon held a flattering 2-0 lead at that point, thanks to substitute Cisse’s clinical finishing. Unbeatable Chelsea had their chances, by all means, but lacked a final product before Drogba headed home a Fabregas free kick. However, Toon army served Mourinho his first Premier League defeat of the season nonetheless.
Charlie Austin has been of fire as of late and was extremely vital to Ranger’s 2-0 win over Burnley. However, after serving up an assist and a goal, he was sent off. QPR held on though and we have to give some credit to Robert Green who made a couple of astonishing saves.
Nobody looks forward to Stoke away, and Arsenal felt why on Saturday. Bojan is in fantastic form and was a significant factor to Stoke’s 3-0 half time lead. Arsenal scored twice in the second half, but when Chambers was shown his second yellow the uphill battle became too steep. The Gunner’s fans were NOT happy with Wenger as he boarded the train back to London.
On Sunday the red cards flew once again as Fabianski clipped Sakho on his way through and Konchesky was sent off at Villa Park. Andy Carroll headed West Ham to victory and Alan Hutton of all people secured three points for Aston Villa.
On a controversial note, Mangala could’ve been sent off against Everton kicking Etoo in the spine. A yellow card was shown and moments later Milner went down in the area. The soft penalty was converted by Yaya Toure and City closed the gap to Chelsea by three points. However, Aguero picked up an injury and is out for about a month. How will city cope without their top striker?
