Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea Game in 10 Tweets is a post from: Just Football

For a spell over the summer there was the very real sense that the Premier League was set for a title race that could contain as many as five genuine participants. However, the early weeks of the season have seen Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United all display some obvious, and occasionally hilarious, inadequacies, and by the time Manchester City and Chelsea lined-up at the Etihad the match already seemed to be a face-off between the only two sides capable of winning the league.

REACTION: Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea: Lampard strikes to deny Chelsea!

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

Chelsea took a point from the Etihad this afternoon as a late strike from Frank Lampard (of all people!) levelled the scores after Andre Schurrle had given Chelsea the lead. On the whole, a draw is the right result.
It was always going to be a tight, tense game with the stakes being so high, despite it being this early in the season.

The crazy weekend

I have gotten too old to have more crazy weekends. So it is great that the Premier League does it for me! This was indeed a footballing weekend in the Premier League that will be remembered a long time. Some of the "big" teams like Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton all forgot that you still need to play football against apparently smaller sides.

Searching For Soccer In England, The Home of Football

Last weekend was a surreal one for me. I spent most of the afternoon in York, as well as the morning in Edinburgh and the evening in Manchester. It was surreal because I was there on a Premier League Saturday, but there was little to no evidence of anything Premier League-related going on in the country that is the home to the world's most popular sports league (and the birthplace of the game).
