Premier League Odds and Sods 31 March 2008

Arsenal beat Bolton 3-2 at the Reebok, keeping mathematical title hopes alive.  The Gunners, with 10 men on the pitch, scored three goals to reverse a 2-0 deficit.  Diaby deserved his red card for raised studs.  Poor fortune averaged itself through an unmarked corner, a penalty and a deflection.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the best in the world right now.  He scored one, set up three and could have had two more as Manchester United beat Aston Villa 4-0 to retain a five point clearance.  Rooney should have had four goals, only managed a brace.  Had Maloney made use of his attempts, it could have been closer, but Villa got played off the pitch.

Newcastle are charging toward the top half, with a 4-1 defeat of Tottenham at White Hart Lane.  Both teams forsook caution with 4-3-3 formations, but it was Newcastle that capitalized on their chances.  Obafemi Martins looked light and rejuvenated.

It was another muck of Merseyside Derby, as a fortunate Torres gift gave Liverpool the 1-0 victory over Everton.  The Champions League six pointer pushed Liverpool ahead by five points.
