How The Rivals Fared
|Do Chelsea need some Croatian creativity?|
Arsenal were held in an exhilarating 0-0 draw by Newcastle United at St. James Park, which also revealed the uglier side of things in the Premier League. Arsenal's new £10m signing Gervinho was sent off for violent conduct against Joey Barton, who was no less guilty in the whole incident for provoking such a reaction from the Ivory Coast striker. Arsenal's midfield struggled for creativity in the absence of both Cesc Fabregas (who has signed for boyhood club Barcelona for £35m) & Samir Nasri.
Championship winners Queens Park Rangers were the most unfortunate victims, as they were battered 4-0 by a depleted Bolton Wanderers side in front of their home supporters at Loftus Road. The London side will need to stock up their defensive as well as midfield options soon if they are to dream of maintaining their top flight status.
The Weekly Verdict:
Team Of The Week: Bolton Wanderers
Player Of The Week: David Silva (Manchester City)
That's all Folks!
