Spurs win as Chelsea lose

Monday, 27th October 2008 10:49pm
There were two very significant results in the English premiership with Tottenham Hotspurs winning for the first time this season and also Chelsea losing for the first time this season.

Liverpool inflicted a rare home defeat on Chelsea and now they remain they only unbeaten side in the competition and add also top the ladder.

For Spurs it was their first win of the season and their first win in the league since a 1 nil win over Reading in early May.

Spurs last home win was against Portsmouth in March when they won by two goals to nil.

Another result that could have a bearing on the title is Manchester United's draw against Everton.

Hull City's winning run continued after beating fellow promoted side West Bromwich Albion 3 nil and their next match is a very interesting one as they face Chelsea at home.

Hull hasn't lost to a London side so far in the premier league.

They have beaten Arsenal, West Ham, Spurs, Fulham and now they face the remaining London based side they haven't played so far and so its going to be interesting to see if they can also beat Chelsea and overtake them on the ladder.

Great result for the Premier League title race Liverpool beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Think they deserved it really. Chelsea had a lot of possession and looked quite good on the ball but didn't look as dangerous as Liverpool in the final third for me. It will be interesting to see how Spurs get on now with Redknapp, especially when you look at their next two games.

And as for Hull City, what a story! I hope they can get the run going but the too have some really really hard games coming up, mind you they've already had a few and it didn't seem to bother them!

Thanks Rik for the comment. Now that Spurs have drawn Arsenal lets see what they can do against Liverpool and at home.

I think Liverpool are getting the right results esp. at this stage of the season and their win over Portsmouth through a penalty just shows they are doing the right thing by getting 3 points in tough matches.

Its only ten rounds so far but its always good to be in front and let others catch you.
