Manchester Delight: United cruise to record breaking 8-2 win over Arsenal as City put 5 past hapless Tottenham — Results Roundup

The third weekend of Barclays Premier League action has come to an end and boy it ended handsomely. While Chelsea and Liverpool both recorded wins yesterday, the clubs from Manchester really stole the show today with some amazing display of football.

Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City  stung Tottenham Hotspur right from the word go, creating chances after chances and eventually taking the lead through Edin Dzeko. The striker then went on to add 3 more to his tally, ending with 4 on the day and giving City their first win at White Hart Lane in 5 years. The Blues won 5-1. Kaboul scored the consolation goal for the home team.

As if Manchester City’s 5 star performance wasn’t enough, Manchester United really turned it on in the last match of the weekend, thumping 8 past a beleaguered Arsenal side as the Reds ran rampant at Old Trafford, showing City that they are still the team to beat. Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick while Ashley Young starred too with 2 fantastic goals. Park, Welbeck, and Nani were the other scorers for United. For Arsenal, captain Van Persie, after missing a penalty early on, struck a ferocious volley from close range after Theo Walcott had given the Gunners some hope.

As with the previous 2 games this season, Arsenal yet again saw one of their players sent off, making it 3 out of 3. They now have more players sent off (3) than they have scored goals this season (2)  or have points on the board (1). Manchester United ended up 8-2 winners, breaking quite a few records in the process as Arsenal’s misery continues.

Cristiano Ronaldo claims THIS as the best goal of his career till date (video)

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo believes that his strike against Zaragoza on Sunday was the best goal he has scored so far.

The Portuguese midfielder struck a ferocious free-kick from around 25 yards out after 44 minutes to give his side a 2-0 lead. Goals from Mesut Ozil and Angel Di Maria either side of the Ronaldo thunderbolt sealed three points for Jose Mourinho’s troops against rock bottom Zaragoza, who responded via Gabi’s 54th-minute penalty.

“My goal is a sign that the team is working hard,” the 25-year-old is quoted as saying by Madrid’s official website. “It was one of the best goals of my career.

“We are playing well. I wouldn’t have been able to score had my team-mates not provoked the foul. I am pleased. We want to extend this winning streak as long as we can.”

“That is when we started to play better. It wasn’t an easy match. They started off strong, but [Mesut] Oezil’s goal served us well and helped us take control.”

Real are just two points off Barcelona, who are showing no signs of slipping up after spanking Real Sociedad 5-0 at the weekend.

Ronaldo Sees RED

Ace winger smashes Mtiliga’s nose to see red after scoring a couple against Malaga


Real winger Cristiano Ronaldo dominated Madrid’s 2-0 home win against Malaga in the LaLiga on Sunday, before being sent off in the second half. The world’s most expensive player scored twice in the game to put Madrid in a commanding position moving Real to within 5 points of leaders Barcelona.

All was well until the 70th minute, when he picked up a red card after swinging his arm & catching Mtiliga in the face as he tried to spin away from the defender’s cluthes.

Angry Manager!

The Andalusian club’s president Fernando Sanz was critical of Ronaldo’s attitude when he was interviewed immediately after the game.

“I don’t suppose Ronaldo meant to do it but he swung his arm back once and the second time he did it he broke the player’s nose,” Sanz said.

“It was a brutal impact and a clear sending-off offence. What he should have done is to leave the field apologising to his opponent rather than throwing his arms in the air and protesting.”

Media Slams Ronaldo

  • “Cristiano Ronaldo, hero & villain” (El Paris)
  • “Cristiano Ronaldo, again angel & demon” (La Razon)
  • “Doctor “Cristiano, & Mister Ronaldo” (Marca)

These were some of the headlines in Monday’s Spanish press.

Ronaldo speaks up!

After the match, Ronaldo visited Malaga’s locker room to apologise to Mtiliga.

“I’ve spoken with Mtiliga and he told me that I didn’t need to apologise because he doesn’t believe I hurt him intentionally and he’s right about that,” Ronaldo added.

“Those who understand football know that my intention is always to play the ball.

“I wouldn’t want to injure anybody. I’m not that type of person. I’m not a bad person. I only want to shine by playing football.

“Now I’m going to be angry when I get home because I won’t be able to play through suspension.”

Ronaldo, as a minimum, will now sit at next week’s trip to fifth-placed Deportivo La Coruna and might be banned for a longer period.

There you go!
