Lampard gave Chelsea a taste of their own medicine!
While Chelsea are known in the Premier League of obtaining players of their rivals while most of them score in front of their former team, Frank Lampard gave Chelsea a taste of their own medicine when they faced the reigning Champions. Driving a low height volley just from the edge of the box, the former Chelsea player showed why he has scored against 39 teams during his tenure.
The matter could have gone worse had a last minute drive by Lampard gone in, however it seemed that the God decided not to test the limits of Chelsea fans as they applauded their Legend in a brilliant way after the match climaxed.
Liverpool were stunned ---- Again!
If you say that this was not coming, maybe you are as naïve as Roy Hodgson who thought his players have a good chance of winning the EURO just because the Final is at Wembley Stadium. Liverpool looked terrified from the 1st minute and West Ham didn’t helped their cause by being on their backs right from the 1st whistle.
The defining moment of this match was when a chipped strike from Sakho, of West Ham, deceived every one of the Liverpool squad and was found in the back of Liverpool net and made it 2-0 to the Hammers. Game, set, Match!
Esteban Cambiasso introduces himself to Premier League!
While Manchester United lost after going up by 2 goals for the 1st time in their Premier League history, everybody even the Leicester manager Nigel Pearce looked dazed as he got more than what he paid off, for his squad.
The memorable moment of this match came when a low drive shot from Cambiasso made its way past De Gea who was looking dazed as well however for other reasons. It made the score line 3-3 and then gone on Leicester to demolish the Red-devils.
The not-so-sleepy Ozil:
If there was one man who was under more pressure than Roy Hodgson when his side faced Basel back this month, it was Mesut Ozil as the German’s credentials of the World Cup winner helped him little as the English media bamboozled Arsene Wenger upon the questions regarding the form of German.
But the German, although he didn’t came out firing, found his stride against Villa before scoring a goal and assisting 1 for the new comer Welbeck. As a result of Ozil theatrics, Arsenal are the only big team in this week to have won a match in Premier League.
Pappis Cisse saved his manager at St. James Park:
Alan Pardew was under so much criticism that even the Newcastle fans brought with them the bannes against their manager. However if there is one thing Newcastle owner Mike Ashley seemed to learn from history, that is they haven’t learn anything.
However Pappis Cisse came to the rescue of his manager in a much better way than his employers as his 2 late goals rescued a point as well as the Manager Alan Pardew from the wrath of his supporters, if not for long than at-least for 1 week
