Premier League Gameweek 6: Cheers and Jeers

cheers and jeers1 Premier League Gameweek 6: Cheers and Jeers

Here’s a look back at the good, the bad, and the ugly from week six of the Premier League.

Cheers

  1. Chelsea: The Blues have played much better the past few weeks alerting fans that it could be a three-team race for the title.
  2. Didier Drogba: Drogba marked his return from injury with a goal in the Chelsea win.
  3. Arsenal: The Gunners get another one in the win column, which gives their supporters hope that the club has turned a corner.
  4. Robin Van Persie: The Arsenal striker scored his one-hundredth goal for the club, the second of which showcased his excellent skill.
  5. Juan Mata: His creativity and width has been vital in increasing Chelsea’s scoring opportunities.
  6. Stoke City: They were able to get a point from the defending champions without the injured Kenwyne Jones.
  7. Nani: A new week, another wonderful run and goal.
  8. Demba Ba: The Newcastle striker had quite a day as he went for a hat trick against Blackburn.
  9. Ben Foster: The West Brom keeper had several fine saves to maintain a clean sheet.
  10. Tottenham: The brace he notched this weekend is evidence that Adebayor will provide the scoring punch that Tottenham has lacked in the past.
  11. David Silva: The City midfielder was the triggerman for the offense as he ran relentlessly through Everton’s defense.
  12. Peter Crouch: Throughout the entire match, the United back four had trouble dealing with the newly signed striker.

Jeers

  1. Fernando Torres: He ruined a somewhat successful day with a pretty reckless two-footed challenge, resulting in a straight red card.
  2. Blackburn: Their stay in the top division appears to be coming to an end.
  3. Ashley Williams: The Swansea defender’s lack of effort on Ramires’ second goal was pretty disgraceful.
  4. Sandro: Not for his play, but for his hair. The midfielder went with a mowhawk look that was dyed blue?
  5. Wigan: The back four was shaky all day as they had several giveaways that put Tottenham on the offensive from the start of the match.
  6. Michael Oliver: The referee struggled all day during the QPR/Aston Villa match. He awarded a non-existent penalty kick while calling thirty-five fouls.
  7. Fulham: The club is still winless in the league and has lacked creativity offensively.
  8. Bryan Ruiz: The Fulham substitute could have given his club the lead late in the match, but his shot on goal went wide and the Cottagers settled for a draw.
  9. Roger Johnson: His own goal was the difference between Wolverhampton getting points and a loss to Liverpool.
  10. Bolton: Things have gone downhill for the club as the Wanderers find themselves at the bottom of the table.
