Middlesbrough 0 – 2 Manchester United

Manchester United have almost a hand on the Premiership title after they beat Middlesbrough convincingly and are now now six points ahead of Liverpool with 4 games left for both the teams. This puts the pressure on Liverpool who play there match on Sunday against Newcastle. A defeat or a draw for Liverpool will almost end there chances or who knows, we might some new twists late on.

Giggs Scores

Although Man Utd had a mid week match against Arsenal on Tuesday, they fielded an strong side with Ronaldo, Anderson, Van Der Sar and Tevez being rested. But still the squad had player like Rooney, Berbatov, Macheda, Scholes, Giggs, Park to win the match. Middlesbrough who are into the relegation zone started the match brightly but they failed to find any clear cut opportunities and were mostly restricted to shots from outside the box which rarely threatened Ben Foster. Boro’s best chance fell to Aliadiere but his low shot was saved by legs of Ben Foster. Manchester United was also not at there best and the striker pairing of Berbatov and Macheda was not too effective. But it was Ryan Giggs who opened the scoring and brought the title closer to Manchester United. Giggs scored from a low placed effort after being setup by Rooney and Vidic. Such beautiful was the effort that the goalkeeper didn’t even move. Paul Scholes had some decent chances but he shot wide on both the occasions.

Liverpool 4 – 4 Arsenal : Premiership Classic

If you have any doubts why Premier League is the  best league in the world, then all those doubts would have been gone if you have checked out this match. The match had all the ingredients of a classic and till the final whistle, you couldn’t tell which team will win the match.

Liverpool knew they needed to win the match to put pressure on Manchester United as the title race gets nearer to the end. They were without Steven Gerrard but they still started strongly against an Arsenal side who had some young players. Arsenal were missing Adebayor and Van Persie and had the young Lukas Fabianski in the goal. It soon became evident that they were in for a busy evening as Liverpool started attacking from the beginning with Torres terrorizing the defence with his skill. Liverpool tested Fabianski on various occasions but they young keeper looked fired up for the occasion. They way they were playing, it looked a matter of time before Liverpool will score but it was Arsenal who took the breakthrough on 36th minute. Mascherano gave the ball away to  Nasri who beautifully passed to Fabregas who set up Arshavin to score the opener.

Liverpool beat Manchester United 4 – 1 to keep there title hopes alive

As a Manchester United fan, i am completely distraught by the result and more so by the margin. It was a must win game for Liverpool and to be honest, the played very well and Torres was absolutely top class today. Gerrard and Torres, who have been vital for Liverpool were on top form while for Manchester United, there top defender Vidic has a poor game. I thought it might turn out to be a poor afternoon for Liverpool as Manchester United opened the scoring with Ronaldo converting the penalty after Reina has fouled Park in the box. But instead of holding onto that lead, United allowed Liverpool to come into the game after that costly mistake from Vidic and United never looked comfortable afterwards. read more »
