Norwich get deserved point at home against Crocked Arsenal

Arsenal's season of missed opportunities and endless injuries shows no sign at all of abating as the Gunners spurned another chance to go level at the top of the Premier League standings, being held to a 1-1 draw by Norwich City at Carrow Road. To compound matters for Arsenal, the side suffered three fresh injuries, including one to the irreplaceable Alexis Sanchez, who will probably miss the entire Christmas and New Year programme with what looks like a hamstring strain.

Arsenal made two changes to the side that lost at West Bromwich Albion last weekend with Mathieu Flamini starting in place of the injured Francis Coquelin, while Aaron Ramsey made his first start in a month with Joel Campbell dropping to the bench. Norwich too made some surprise selections, the most noteworthy being Lewis Grabban being named as the lead striker with the player presumably putting his differences with Manager Alex Neil aside to earn his first start since the opening day of the season.


Jose Mourinho: "My team deserved more than a point"

Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho was very impressed with his side's performance during the Blues' 0-0 draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane, claiming that was the best Chelsea had played all year, and deserved to leave North London with more than the point they got.

Chelsea started with Eden Hazard as their lead striker with Diego Costa left on the bench for the entirety of the contest and only managed a solitary shot on target, but Blues boss Jose Mourinho wasn't perturbed by that, declaring that he was really happy with the way his side played today, especially defensively.


Mauricio Pochettino: "Chelsea will be happy with the point"

Tottenham Hotspur Manager Mauricio Pochettino said in his post match press conference that Chelsea will be the happier side leaving White Hart Lane with a share of the spoils after Spurs and the Blues played out a 0-0 draw in the noon kick-off on Sunday.

Tottenham, who are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League games, were barely tested by Chelsea, who had just the one shot on target all game, a good effort from Eden Hazard that was well saved by Hugo Lloris.


Tottenham and Chelsea play out dull goal-less draw

Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho labeled Tottenham Hotspur pre-game as genuine title contenders, and 'The Special One' afforded him the respect one would expect after such claims as he named a starting eleven sans lead striker Diego Costa and unsurprisingly left White Hart Lane with a point after a largely dull and unsurprisingly noon kick-off on Sunday.

A fluid Chelsea side, starting with Eden Hazard leading the line and Pedro running the channels showed moments of brilliance with Hazard drawing an excellent save from Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris in the second half, but the game itself was largely a poor spectacle with neither side offering much in terms of an offensive threat and Chelsea largely happy to get men behind the ball and look to play on the counter.

Schweinsteiger lambasts Man United performance

He may be new to Manchester United, but one can't accuse Bastian Schweinsteiger of not speaking his mind about the happenings at the club.

The German skipper scored his first goal in United colours today, but was very disappointed with his side's performance as the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
