Man Utd Steamroller Continues At Anfield

There was another huge fixture in Division 1 week 7, as Liverpool hosted bitter rivals Manchester United. There was a lot to play for as Man Utd could go provisionally top with a win, but Liverpool could get back in the running if they took all 3 points. Neither side wanted to lose this crucial match and concede a title change to their opponent. Manchester United are undefeated in the league so far, and after their previous league title disappointments, they really wanted to keep their good form going.

It was a hectic start as both sides flew in with hard tackles to set the tone for the game. It was clear from the outset that it would be a close match with not much between the sides. Despite Liverpool having the greater possession, it was Man Utd that struck first with a great strike from a counter-attack.

Liverpool knew they must score to have a chance, but Manchester’s defence stood solid. Liverpool could not get their attack going and continued to give away needless free-kicks which broke up the flow of the game. Eventually time ran out for the hosts and Manchester United celebrated taking all 3 points at Anfield.

The second match was between Tottenham and West Ham. There was a lot of history between these sides after West Ham pipped Spurs to the Division 2 title in Year 4. Both sides have been struggling with form this year, so a win was required to pull themselves away from the relegation contenders.

West Ham got off to a flyer as they scored a beauty on their first attack. Spurs knew they needed to score and were soon back in the match as they found the net near the end of the first half. Despite getting back into the game, a clumsy tackle gave West ham a direct free kick on the edge of the area. The first shot was inconclusive if it had gone in to the goal, so the referee ordered a re-take. West Ham scored to take the lead again.

Spurs continued to push forward to get even and they were rewarded when West Ham gave away a silly penalty. The Spurs striker had a lot of pressure on him, but easily found the net to make it 2-2. It was looking as if the sides would share the points, but Spurs made a lovely move down the left wing with a cross that went straight to a waiting forward.
