The mid week games provided results that have in no way harmed the renewed excitement surrounding the English premier league this season. Manchester United and Chelsea fc dropped crucial points against Aston Villa (1 - 1) and Everton (2 - 1) respectively, while Arsenal squeezed out a one goal win over Aston Villa courtesy of a 72nd minute winner by Abou Diaby. With the point gap between the top three teams cut to 6 points, key games this February, after a brief interval for FA cup and UEFA champions' league fixtures have acquired a distinctive relevance.
This mid-week action had a lot of providence attached to them. While Didier Drogba Chelsea fc thought they had an opportunity to push for a draw, the later stages was one of absolute desperation to get at least a goal, after Loius Saha's well taken finish in the 75th minute. In the other game, Nani's sending off was to prove costly as Manchester United, though still dominant, but unable to get the winning second goal. The rest of the February fixtures is poised to heighten the excitement.
On Saturday February 20, a rejuvenated Everton take on the Red end of Manchester in a match that has traditionally favoured United. With five wins out of the previous six meetings, United are odds on favourites to win and pile up further pressure on Chelsea who have a tricky tie at Wolverhampton Wanderers. Wolves lie just a point above the drop zone and would battle for any point they can get at the moment. Just 24 hours later Manchester City are at home to Liverpool in a direct confrontation for 4th place. England's soccer news highlights for the next premiership weekend is bound to be exciting.
As famous soccer players like Rooney, Gerard, Fabrecas and co prepared to put football artistry on display, we are left with sole option of waiting, hoping that the wait will be worth all the ache.
