Decent Synopsis Bob. Just omitted to mention Anders Herrera's application to join the NBA?

:D goodison, but what a pass once he used his feet..
Both United goals were more than a little fortuitous, however Chelsea got just about all they deserved out of the game. Both Hazard & Costa were well below par, maybe due to uncertainty about where they will be playing next season. The pair are a couple of the reasons why Chelsea are top of the pile but on yesterday's showing the club should snatch the hand of any decent offer.

West Brom 0 Liverpool 1
Not much of a game as West Brom are always well organized defensively but rely on set pieces for their main goal threat.
Surprisingly,they slipped up just before half time which let Firmino in for the winner.The match only really livened up in the last few minutes when keeper,Foster,joined the attack as the Baggies belatedly chased an equalizer.
A very important 3 points for Liverpool in their battle for Champions League football next season.

Manchester United 2 Chelsea 0
Well,what a surprise ! :D This is probably the best I've seen United play since Sir Alex left.Fast,direct play,exciting to watch....just like old times,really !Rashford,in particular and Lingard gave the Chelsea defence a harrowing time throughout.Herrera snuffed out Hazard more or less completely.Pretty easy for Bailly and Rojo against Costa whose intimidating style failed for once.I think Chelsea were surprised at the tempo United played and never really got going until the last 20 minutes.
Its rumoured mat80 has phoned Jose Mourinho,personally,to thank him for giving The Spuds a whiff of the title ! \:D/
Still Chelseas to lose,though.......

Yes,very sad news.I'm sure most guys on the forum will remember him playing for Aston Villa and Middlesborough.
He was still playing in 2009......44 is no age is it.....RIP.

"Former England and Aston Villa defender Ugo Ehiogu has died at the age of 44 after suffering a cardiac arrest at Tottenham's training centre on Thursday.
A Spurs statement said Ehiogu died in hospital in the early hours of Friday.
Ehiogu, who was Spurs' Under-23s coach, was capped four times by England.
"Words cannot express the shock and sadness that we all feel at the club," said Tottenham's head of coaching and development John McDermott.
"Ugo's immense presence will be irreplaceable."

Desperate news..... :(
At least upfront we can play Rashford,Lingard and Martial with a bit of pace but in central defence have to hope nothing happens to Bailly and/or Blind.

From the Daily Record.
"Manchester United will be without both Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the rest of the season after both players ruptured cruciate ligaments in Thursday's Europa League quarter-final defeat of Anderlecht.
Rojo, who has established himself as a first-choice defender in Jose Mourinho 's side, was hopeful that he'd escaped serious injury after overloading the tendons of his left knee in a first-half tackle. However, a series of medical examinations on Friday diagnosed a torn anterior cruciate ligament
The Argentina international is scheduled to undergo reconstructive surgery. According to sources close to the player, he is not expected to play again until September.
Ibrahimovic's injury - caused by hyperextension of the right knee as the forward landed following an aerial challenge - is understood to be worse than Rojo. United's leading goalscorer has ruptured both anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments with an expected recovery period of nine to 12 months.
It is extremely unusual for a professional football club to lose two players to cruciate ligament ruptures in the same match. Mourinho's staff believe the injuries are linked to an extremely dense fixture schedule – United have played significantly more matches than any other Premier League club and were two-thirds of the way through a run of nine fixtures this month alone."

Bournemouth 4 Middlesborough 0
Hull 2 Watford 0
Swansea 2 Stoke 0
West Ham 0 Everton 0

Rampant Bournemouth look almost safe now but Boro surely down after a 16 game winless run.
Hull were reduced to 10 men after Niasse was sent off in the 25th minute and were clinging on at half time.A brave,battling performance in the 2nd half gave them the 3 points and a big boost to their Premiership survival.
A big win for Swansea,also,to keep their hopes alive.The match hinged on a missed penalty by Stoke in the second half with Swansea grabbing their second goal moments later.
West Ham v Everton.....what a dire match ! Unfortunately I must have watched over half of it.Everton had the possession but not one single short on target with the Hammers looking the most likely winners.A poor Everton performance that could only give disappointment to Ronald Koeman,747man and his faithful sidekick,goodison ! ;)

Tonight.....Burnley v United 8.15pm Thai,Liverpool v Palace 10.30pm Thai.

Also the second FA Cup semi final between Manchester City and Arsenal at 9pm Thai.....hope its as good as last nights game which was a cracker.The Spuds were a bit unlucky as they looked the most likely winners for the first hour but two cracking goals from Hazard and Matic won the game for Chelsea.....Hazard coming on as a sub actually made the difference.
Was Chelseas second goal a penalty ? Certainly a reckless challenge from Son but he did seem to pull back and Moses just dived over him without contact.....but a difficult one for the ref and penalties have been given for less.

It took Everton until the 70th minute to register their first proper attempt - Lookman dragging a shot wide from outside the box - before Koeman rolled the dice one last time by introducing Dominic Calvert-Lewin soon after.Fortunately there was plenty of Snooker to keep me awake plus the Chelski (visitors to Goodison next Saturday) versus Spuds game wasn't too shabby. Oumar Niasse received a diabolical Red Card in the Hull v Watford game for hanging his right leg out to dry. I think they'll appeal and win on Video evidence. Plenty of midweek games coming up more Shift work, pays for The "Castle creek".

Out of favour/recovered from injury Martial & Rooney score first half goals for a pretty comfortable victory.
Big Sam's sides have all had a pretty good record against a succession of Pool mangers & so it proved again. Christian Benteke (who it is fair to say did not set the world on fire while at Pool) scored either side of half time to take the points..

But the games just keep coming this week..
