Premier League – Manchester City hits the gas and puts pressure on Chelsea

Article by Andrew Hill

Right after week eight Manchester City’s multi-millionaire investment commences to see benefits Liverpool will take a deep breath with the economic relief from its sale and Manchester United trembles with Rooney’s feasible departure.

Four straight wins is the formulation that has consolidated Manchester Metropolis in the 2nd place -17 factors- of the Barclays Premier League right after eight weeks of action. The Citizens are beginning to see the fruits of their sturdy financial investment this summertime, when they spent about one hundred fifty million Euros in six transfers. The excellent minute that the Argentinean striker Carlos Tevez is going by means of as the prime scorer of the opposition with 7 goals is another essential aspect in the achievement of the group.

Their city neighbor, Manchester United, is not operating with the very same luck recently, as they have tied their 3 final games. The team’s functionality has been deeply impacted considering that the Ecuadorian wing Antonio Valencia was injured -double fracture of tibia and fibula- in opposition to Glasgow Rangers from Scotland, for the duration of Matchday one of the UEFA Champions League, back in September 14.

As if this wasn’t sufficient, their star Wayne Rooney has announced that he wants to leave the club, as he finds that his impaired partnership with Coach Sir Alex Ferguson is irremediable. His contract expires in 2012 and he has no ideas of renewing it, for that reason if the Red Devils want to make a profit, they have no option but to sell possibly in December of 2010 of this coming summertime.

Fiscal relief has arrived to Liverpool, but results just don’t seem to stick to via, and only the target distinction separates them from the final location that West Ham United retains, as the two teams have 6 factors out of the 24 that have been in dispute.

The only comfort for the Reds followers this time is that they no longer have to feel concerned about their team’s financial debt with Royal Financial institution of Scotland -which had them haunted by bankruptcy-, because they have been recently purchased by New England Sports Ventures (NESV) -the American sports investment company that owns the Key League Baseball team Boston Red Sox- for 340 million Euros.

The Reds are truly missing Fernando Torres’ objectives this time, since the forward is significantly from currently being the decisive player that he was very last period, scoring 22 goals. This time he only has 1, and Coach Roy Hodgson feels that Torres’ inadequate performance is a consequence of all the critics he obtained soon after the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which have affected his self-confidence.

There is not much to say about the defending champions Chelsea, who continues to be the solo leader of the competitors with 19 points, and has only identified resistance in Manchester City, the only team that has been ready to defeat them this period. The only question that the Blues followers require to ask on their own is which of their contenders will be able to retain up their tempo.

Arsene Wegner’s Arsenal continues to be much more of what we have seen in the past seasons: a team that insinuates that they are ready to combat for the title, but disappears in the decisive video games. Their captain Cesc Fabregas is fed up of this scenario and has stated that they lack “successful mentality”. The Gunners march in 3rd place with 14 points, and except they get a huge dose of that mentality that Fabregas is complaining about, that is almost certainly that greatest spot that they are heading to occupy.
