Sunday in the Premiership

I can't tell you how good it feels to be back in my chair in the Cottage looking forward to watching a Sunday schedule of Premiership matches with you lot. First up are the champions, still struggling at the bottom of the table, against the over performing Crystal Palace. Then at 11am is the intriguing fixture of Everton v. Spurs. It's raining in Britain but I'm cozy here. Join me, won't you?

We're away at Selhurst Park.

8:32 AM

Costa attempts to barrel through the middle. He beats a couple of challenges with a powerful run, but then he’s sent flying by a firm but fair tackle from Delaney, who monstered him at Stamford Bridge in August. That’s known as laying down a marker.

8:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Play is stopped with Cesar Azpilicueta down clutching his face, having been caught in the jaw by Campbell’s foot. It was an accident, but that’s painful.

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This would ordinarily be thought of as a top v. bottom clash but this season it's Palace in 5th against Chelsea in 15th.

8:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Delaney continues his aggressive approach against Costa, but this time he’s too forceful with a fairly needless challenge from behind in a harmless area. He’s booked and he’ll have to watch himself now.

8:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now Mikel is in trouble. Not a booking but an unnecessary challenge that gives Palace a chance to whip a good ball into the area.

8:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Meanwhile Eden Hazard is hobbling off the pitch. Hiddink will be forced to make an early change.

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The free kick is cleared out for a corner. Meanwhile, Pedro is being prepared to come on.

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Delaney has a free header but can't get any power behind it.

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Pedro is quickly into the swing of things, attempting to make an instant impact with a shot from 20 yards. It’s blocked by Ward’s face and play is stopped so the Palace right-back can receive treatment. This game is not very good.

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now Willian fouls Zaha as he tries to skip around him. Another set piece opportunity for Palace.

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Puncheon swings one in; Delaney is on to it again but can't direct it on goal with power.

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

All Palace pressure now - Zouma just cuts out a Zaha cross. Scott Dann attacks the resulting corner but it's cleared out.

8:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Campbell makes a hash of a great chance presented to him by Puncheon. Complete miskick.

8:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Chelsea take the lead against the run of play. Oscar nets for the champions.

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lovely team goal there for the Blues. Fabregas threaded a slide rule pass through to Costa who provided the perfect cut back for the Brazilian.

0-1!

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hiddink's Chelsea continue to show that they're more resilient than the Chelsea side that turned out for Mou at the beginning of this season. What have Palace got now?

9:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Really scrappy stuff now.

9:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Puncheon hoicks a cross behind for a goal-kick.

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Peep peep - the end of a fairly uninspiring half played in torrential rain, only livened up by the occasional moment from Jason Puncheon at one end and a lovely Oscar goal. Hoping for better in the second half.

9:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The rain has stopped as the second half starts.

9:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Chelsea win a free-kick on the right, Jedinak giving it away. Willian whips it towards the far post and Hennessey is forced to stay on his line by the quality of the delivery. It should end in a second Chelsea goal - but Zouma somehow directs his header high and wide from a few yards out.

9:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Willian notches Chelski's second!

9:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fabregas again starts the move, combining well with Oscar, who darts through the middle. He tries to burst past Dann, but he falls and the ball breaks to Willian, 25 yards out. He only has one thought in his mind. He charges on to it and belts a thunderous right-footer high past Hennessey and into the top left corner, the ball travelling into the net at a terrifying pace. What a strike from Chelsea’s player of the season!

9:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

0-3!

Costa bundles in another goal for the Blues and Jose Mourinho must be putting his foot through the telly.

9:55 AM

Good morning mate. I just woke up and am glad to join you.

10:00 AM

That proves that Josie is the problem.

10:01 AM

Costa and Oscar have now scored five goals in four games between them since Mourinho’s sacking.

Morning, mate - glad to have you on board. This one is over.

I recorded the rest of the match, but it sounds like I'm in store for a treat

10:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Oscar puts through Costa , who is tackled by Delaney for a corner. The corner from Fab is well overcooked. More burnt.

10:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Based on your comments, Chelsea are no longer Josie and the PUssycats?

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Oscar goes on a solo run and has a shot blocked by Scott Dann's bum that is hacked away by Joe Ledley

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Scott Dann clears a pass from Willian for a corner

10:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner was taken short and Oscar played through Willian , who crossed and it was volleyed over by Costa

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Time to celebrate at the theater as the Phantom of the Opera is on for Oscar Not the Grouch, who gets a deserved ovation from the supporters , who travelled across London

It's over and Palace win 0-3 at Selhurst Park. Their first away win since August

10:21 AM

It's all over at Selhurst Park. Palace will drop a bit and give Spurs, United and others a chance to climb.

10:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Spuds will remain fourth, a point behind Citeh if they win. The Toffees move two places up to ninth if they win.

10:35 AM

I'm looking forward to the next match which could be a scoring duel between Harry Kane and the Chunk.

10:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Next up is Everton, currently in 11th vs. Spurs, currently in 4th. You'll no doubt be plugging for the Toffees today, as Spurs are United's immediate rivals.

10:47 AM

Hey boys, I am here after already gone on walkies and ready for the match
I am not sure who I am rooting for today. I like the way Spurs play and I'd like them to challenge for the title as I have been saying for months

Not happy with the Chelsea win even though that was a good result for United and kept them fifth

10:51 AM

The teams now lining up in the tunnel at Goodison:

Everton: Howard; Coleman, Stones, Funes Mori, Baines; Barry, Cleverley; Lennon, Barkley, Kone; Lukaku. Subs: Robles, Jagielka, Mirallas, Besic, Deulofeu, Osman, Galloway.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Carroll; Lamela, Alli, Eriksen; Kane. Subs: Rose, Bentaleb, Son, Vorm, Trippier, Chadli, Onomah.

All of the main characters were killed by ingesting carbon monoxide after being trapped in a garage. It's one of the most shocking series enders ever.

Welcome back, mate. You are Sparky and Fred's hero.

The streak is not on. The Chunk tied Bob Lathchford, but was one short of the all time club record set by the great Dixie Dean

11:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ah - shame. He's still tied with Jamie Vardy on 15. Verde's goals have dried up since he snatched the record.

11:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Good start by Spurs here

From yesterday's matches, I saw a lot of headlines this morning saying that a certain #10 is back... I thought he wasn't impressive except for the goal and that was a great finish but quite jammy

11:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ta, Bob. Fred is happy about the win vs the Villain, but thinks it's an open invitation to be a villain and steal Sparky's meals!

11:06 AM

I agree, UWS. The Karate kid was pulling the strings for United and Yashley had his best performance for United since the days of SAF

Quick start to this match for Spurs. Kane hits the post with a raking drive.

Ashley Young was United's best player yesterday and was replaced by Paddy McNair.... just saying
No negative talk here

11:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! I thought that was in as Tom Carroll took a short free kick to Harry Kane . He had an attempted chip blocked then a long range effort came off the inside of the post and out for a goal kick. Timmy was completely beaten

I think LVG was paranoid

The Spuds are completing dominating the opening stages of the match early doors.

11:11 AM

The wee beetle will be keen to have a good match against his old club. Well, it doesn't look like happening as his old club are dominating and are a much improved team since he left

Interesting facts about the Prem in USA from the Daily Mail



Arsenal vs Manchester United sets USA record
HEADLINE NEWS: The Premier League has crossed the 'final frontier', winning over a reticent nation, as NBC's coverage, hosted by Brit Rebecca Lowe, has taken football mainstream in America.

THE BOTTOM LINE: NBC will pay $1bn (£658m) for six more years of live rights, 2016-22, or £109.6m a year, a 99 per cent increase per year on the £55m-a-year current deal for 2013-16.

THE NUMBERS GAME: Arsenal v Man Utd in November 2014 had an average audience of 1.41m, a US record. Total audience in the USA for 2014-15, for all games combined, was 214m.

STARS OF THE SHOW: Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd and Arsenal are the most popular clubs. Present and former USA players Tim Howard, DeAndre Yedlin, Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey are familiar faces.

VIEWING DIVERSITY: Almost a third of viewers (27 per cent) watch matches away from their home, and more than half of those (53 per cent) do so via either work computers, laptops, tablets or mobiles on the go.

KILLER STAT: In a nation of 319m people, almost one in 11, or 28.6m, watched at least one Premier League match last season.

11:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, Bob. You could ponder about what if and ignore the current manager, UWS? I agree with Bob and believe that we would be up there with Citeh and the Gunners . I would have picked him instead of LVG, but what do I know?

That's a good policy for 2016, UWS. You've done well so far to keep up your New Year's Resolution.

And as I type that - Aaron Lennon nets for the hosts!

Leeds United shout out there - lovely bubbly.

Nice knock-down from The Chunk to LUFC Academy.

11:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wasn't that the Toffees first attack of the match?

11:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Everton are suddenly on the rampage. Lennon nearly finds Kone in the box.

11:24 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Kone could have double Everton's lead... good block

11:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kone has a shot blocked by Alderweireld off a run and pass from the LuFC Academy

11:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I think it was - definitely their first strike on goal.

11:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

All three of us should get satisfaction in the goal as both the MUFC and LUFC Academies were involved.Cl;ever Boy crossed, the Chunk headed down, and Lennon scored with a rocket in the upper 90 from the opposite corner of the box. Lloris did not stand a chance., It all started when Baines picked Eriksen's pocket

11:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It doesn't get any easier for the Spuds as they are surely involved in the tie of the Third Round next Sunday as the host the Foxes this time next Sunday

11:27 AM

Oh - the woodwork saves Everton again. Davies rockets one off the crossbar!

11:29 AM

A great strike by Spurs again and hits the same frame!

11:30 AM

OH !!! A long range rocket from Ben Davies off a short corner rockets off the bar leaving Timmy stranded.

11:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Spuds dominated both matches that they have lost this season. Will the same be true today?

11:31 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Arlo says Kane and Davies. Shouldn't it be Caine and Abel?

11:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Spurs trail despite having 61% of the possession. Shows you what nonsense that stat can be.

11:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Timmy easily catches a long range effort from Tom Carroll. Easier than the previous two.

11:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Totally agree but this possession is creating chances unlike other certain teams

11:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Actually, I think it's accurate this time. They've dominated and hit the woodwork twice. I think they will eventually score of they are persistent.

11:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, UWS. This is not LVG type possession.

11:35 AM

Seamus Coleman is booked for handball. That seemed unintentional and harsh, but Michael Oliver felt that it didn't cut the mustard.

Double switch by Martinez at the hour mark. Kone and Lennon off and Delafeu and Basic on.

12:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's a really tough law.

12:19 PM

Did he bring on Besic because Roberto feels that the Spuds are too dominant in the center of Stanley Park?

Deulofeu wins a corner off of Ben Davies. The Toffees first corner of the match

A couple of good blocks by the Spuds off the corner then a good cross by Deulofeu just misses the Chunk at the far post.

12:47 PM

Agreed, but the SPuds are headed in the right direction and signs that Pochettino could do the job at OT. Also, he's developed as many young English players as anyone else./

This one is being seen out for a score draw, which will leave Spurs in 4th, just ahead of United and Everton in 11th.
