ARS vs TOT Robbie Keane believes that their squad depth is better than Arsenal... how ridiculous. The subs of Arsenal can definitely punish Tottenham's heavily! Well, enjoy this exciting London derby which I think Tottenham can at most achieve a draw.

BOL vs CHE Just days ago Chelsea gave a quadruple blast to Bolton, which should give them a lesson not to be so adventurous going forward again. Hence I think Chelsea will not repeat a big win.

BUR vs HUL Okay, I'll give Burnley another chance at Turf Moor. Should they fail, the Turf Moor fairy tale should end.

EVE vs AST Everton's long list of injuries doesn't seem to be eased, so I think they will get one or two counter attack blows from Villa. Remember that Villa plays double games this gameweek so get their key players.

FUL vs LIV Liverpool will only get better after the happy game at Old Trafford. However, their injury list is mounting, so not so fast to see them explode.

POR vs WIG The pompey gained their very needed confidence after a big win against Stoke in Carling Cup action, but Wigan is doing well recently as well.

STO vs WOL The awfulness of Wolves' defence should be a great condition to boost Beattie's form and confidence back to his best.

SUN vs WHU Never vote for a team who's struggling down in the relegation zone, especially when they're facing one of the most disciplined team in the premier league with a very ferocious striker. I don't recommend you to put your bets on the hammers despite they're playing two games this week.

MANU vs BLA A straight bounce is much needed for the defending champion after a defeat against their most hated rivals. Sorry Big Sam.

BIR vs MANC It'll make me hate Man City and Adebayor should they failed to win again. Can they repeat the great result at League Cup?

WHU vs AST Just read the Villa's and West Ham's analysis above and you'll get my point of view.

Achieving Balance
After almost one-third of the season, teams have started to settle and the points distribution is now shifting to a more balanced share between the three lines. Following Lampard's explosive performance, Fabregas' consistent fire power, the most awaited Italian star Aquilani's recovery and more, the midfielders are expected to buck themselves up and start to collect great points to climb up in the fantasy leaderboard. You should really adjust a little bit when doing transfers.

Midfielders on fire?

Carling Cup Review
All the clubs which're expected to win qualified for the next round, except Stoke City who got beaten pathetically by the league bottomers Portsmouth. Chelsea proved to be an ultimate machine again when they beat Bolton 4-0 following their 5-0 win at league last week, while Manchester City recorded another emphatic win against lower division club.

The biggest showdown of the round of 16s - Arsenal vs Liverpool was quite a lively match as Insua's first goal for Liverpool was sandwiched between Merida's opener and Bendtner's winner. A fantastic volley by him.

"Hehehe... This game should free me from pressure!"

It's a week where the scousers full of joy and the devils full of disappointments following up the famous Anfield victory for Liverpool after four successive defeats. A lot of surprising results happened this week which eventually spoilt my score this week!

WOL 1-1 AST The first shit I've received came from the first game of the gameweek where Wolves shockingly dominated the possession of the game and gave Villa a big trouble. Unlucky for my Agbonlahor as Sidwell committed a foul at the penalty box, otherwise he should had collected a fair amount of bonus points.

BIR 2-1 SUN Second shit in a row. Not only that Sunderland couldn't manage to win, but their inability to score goals really piss me off. They even need an own goal to make the score looked nicer. Damn them. On the positive side, Reid became the best loser who claimed three bonus points.
0-2 (Incorrect Outcome)
Ridgewell (8)
Bent (2)

BUR 1-3 WIG Third shit consecutively! Burnley who looked so giant before at Turf Moor started perfectly yet ended tremendously hell-like after letting Rodallega to score two! Bad game.

TOT 0-1 STO The shit continued after a break. Tottenham in my opinion is the biggest loser of the week as they couldn't even manage to score against Stoke who are poor away from home at their giant fortress! I'm ashamed of them.
2-1 (Incorrect Outcome)

CHE 5-0 BLA My intuition was proven to be wrong. Ancelotti actually raped Big Sam without any mercy! Unbelievably, their top four points scorer this gameweek actually scored 45!
3-2 (Correct Outcome)
Lampard (14)
Drogba (9)

BOL 3-2 EVE Hahaha, I am perfectly correct this time! Saha is another loser this gameweek who scored three points bonus. Great spirit by Everton who managed to recover the two goals deficit before losing anyway.
3-2 (Perfect Result)
Saha (9)
Taylor (5)

LIV 2-0 MANU Everything was by Liverpool side in this game - from midfield domination to Torres' marvel to the referees. A well deserved victory - if and only if their attackers have better accuracy. An absolutely amazing performance by Liverpool squad.
2-1 (Correct Outcome)
Carragher, Torres (8)
Benayoun (5)

MANC 2-2 FUL Third consecutive draws for Manchester City. They left my prediction utterly a shit and left their title hopes absolutely hopeless. Noob I should say!
2-1 (Incorrect Outcome)
Duff, Greening (8)

WHU 2-2 ARS The hammers unbelievably flattened gunners with two lethal strikes after being inflicted two bullets from them. They're same as Manchester City this gameweek: NOOB!

News and Highlights

The biggest derby in England turned out to be an exhilarating and exciting game which could be even better if not because of the refs. The Merseysiders were the more determined and hyped squad and controlled the flow of the game from the start till the end while intercepted by several threatening attempts by Manchester.

The game only turned out to be more adventurous upfront when Fernando Torres broken the deadlock at 64 minutes with a shot which fully resembled his determination and confidence. Since then the home side dominated the game while Ferguson's side increased their pressure against the home side.

Owen made a return to the Anfield as a traitor and had nearly tore down the Reds defence with a golden chance ruined by last man Jamie Carragher. The skipper fortunately was only awarded a yellow card which caused a big dissatisfaction by Ferguson and his lads.

Vidic became the joke of the day when he stepped forward and exchanged some words with Carragher, only to know that he was awarded his third consecutive red cards playing against Liverpool minutes after. Mascherano was sent off just moments after as well after a barbaric foul against Van der Sar.

N'gog's goal at injury time sealed off the victory for Liverpool as the home side now secured their third successive victory against their arch-rivals and prevented the repetition of the club's 5th consecutive defeats which last occured 56 years ago. Great win.

"Hmm, seems like my choice of not wasting 20 million pounds to sack Rafa is right."

Weird Gameweek
Almost all the stronger sides failed to claim three points this gameweek. Man Utd, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City, Aston Villa... I just couldn't believe that. The only duo who survived were the ultimately armed Chelsea and ultimately determined Liverpool.

Even stevens.

Lamp's Showdown
The fans simply miss it don't you? Lampard finally ended his open-game-goal drought which lasted for about five months after he scored a decisive second goal against the Rovers. Finally the ultimate machine of the Blues is back!

"I'm back! Beware of me yo!"

Poll of the Fortnight: Which Top Four Club Is Going To Be The First To Drop Out Of The Title Race?

Well, actually this is quite a useless poll as the census was easily there without the poll: Liverpool should be the first club to drop out of the title race.

Hell ya, followed up by the victory against Man Utd, at least they aren't getting out of the spotlight so fast.

Liverpool stood high up on this poll with 68 votes out of a total of 94 voters. Following them are their arch-rival Manchester United (13 votes), Arsenal (9 votes) and their rival of this century Chelsea (4 votes).

Coincidently, my prediction of league rankings this season come out to be tally as the results of this poll as well (CHE 1st, ARS 2nd, MU 3rd and LIV 4th). How about you?
