Hi guys, welcome back to my blog. A lot has been happening in the football world and that’s why I’m here to share. But before we proceed, let me say happy new month, I pray that this month comes with a lot of blessings for you. The EFL cup seem to have progressed into the quarter finals with just few games left. The week has been exciting already. Lets walk through it.
“…We were the best team, we were magnificent. In the second half a super team like Chelsea looked very ordinary, and they are not. We played so, so well.” – Mourinho to Sky Sports
Tottenham walked past a super Chelsea team that looked ordinary to the next round of the EFL cup in a match which even had touchline exchange of words between both coaches. At first Chelsea seemed to have gotten ahead with an early first competitive Timo Werner goal.
Only for Erik Lamela to draw the game into penalties (Ouch! The first time Werner scored for Chelsea in Pre season, it ended in a draw too)
Manchester city sent off Burnley despite the shocker they had at Eithad, while a Juan Mata captained Manchester United outclassed Brighton with the second 11.
From My Honest assertions all games were superb, all last week underperformed teams stepped up well. Chelsea stepped up from that weekend only for Mason Mount to send his penalty kick straight to the waiting arms of the empty stand. The debutant goalie Mendy really made brilliant saves especially stopping that Reguilon bound goal. He seems to have started blending earlier than expected and fans are excited they’ve found a better upgrade to the current goalie. However he needs to improve on his penalty saving skill as he never went the right way in the 5 penalty kicks he encountered in the match, considering that he will be facing a lot of them this season with the controversial new penalty prone rule and the eagle eye of VAR.
Tottenham signalled they were back for business as they impressed even without the likes of Son and new signing Bale. Debutant Reguilon came so close to scoring while providing the assist for the late goal.
City didn’t slack as Sterling and Ferran Torres made Burnley pay for the 5-2 Leceister discipline. United maintained superiority without penalties as Juan Mata even got his 50 United goal.
The Week cup games won’t be complete as Arsenal meet Liverpool again. Will this be twice beaten? Or will Cup specialist Arsenal do their thing? Let Me know what you think I the comment section far below
