Just a few conclusions from this weekend’s Premier League action.
Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea fell to their first defeat of the season away to Roberto Martinez’ Wigan. Saturday’s game at the DW Stadium finished 3-1 to the Latics, with Titus Bramble, Hugo Rodallega and Paul Scharner all getting on the scoresheet for the home side.
Didier Drogba briefly brought the sides level, however the sending off of Chelsea keeper Petr Cech proved decisive in the end. It will be interesting to see how Ancelotti’s Chelsea respond to yesterday’s defeat at the hands of Wigan. They face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge next weekend in what promises to be a fascinating affair.
Meanwhile, Portsmouth just can’t stop losing. Paul Hart’s men fell to their seventh straight defeat this season at home to Everton. A first half striker from Louis Saha earned David Moyes’ men all three points, leaving many people questioning how much longer can Hart survive in the hot seat at Fratton Park. Defeat to Wolves next week will surely spell the end for Hart, not that it will help Pompey because, for me, they are already heading for the Championship.
Finally, four goals from Robbie Keane helped Tottenham get back to winning ways at home to Burnley yesterday. The 5-0 win at White Hart Lane was the side’s first league win since the end of August. I was delighted to see Keane bag so many goals yesterday because since he has returned to Spurs, he has struggled somewhat to find the back of the net.
