Women’s Super League
London teams seem to be dominating the WSL, with Arsenal and Tottenham continuing their winning streaks to 4 games each, with Arsenal ahead of their North London rivals due to a staggering goal difference of 14. I highly encourage anyone who enjoys football to watch these matches, or even to look at the highlights, with high score lines becoming regular within the WSL it has produced more entertaining matches then the Premier League this weekend!
Everyone was looking at Manchester City vs PSG with excitement, and it did not disappoint! Messi scored his first Champions League goal for PSG, and the link ups with Neymar and Mbappé was beautiful to watch. I’m not sure Porto turned up to play Liverpool, they were absolutely annihilated, showing their dominance in Europe. It was a disappointing midweek game for Chelsea who lost to Juventus and joyless for Manchester United who came back from 1-0 down to win the game in dramatic style with a goal in the 95th minute by none other than Cristiano Ronaldo!
Liverpool v Manchester City was this weekend’s big match, safe to say it delivered for the neutral fan, two goals apiece with some controversial calls and Pep Guardiola annoyed with some decision making. What a goal from Mo Salah, the way he picked around the Man City defence was beautiful and a top finish to seal it off.
I have to say that I agree with Pep, what was James Milner doing in the pitch after his tackle against Bernardo Silva, a red card in my eyes for sure, no contact with the ball whatsoever and that was brutal, it could have been so much worse. I think almost everyone watching (other than the reds) were probably agreeing with Pep’s sense of outrage.
In other matches Tottenham bounced back from an embarrassing performance to secure three points, although it did seem like the team was being carried by Son Heung-min. Arsenal vs Brighton was some luck for the gunners, twenty minutes of good defending at the end to scrape a point isn’t what their fans will be happy to see. Chelsea vs Southampton was a pretty even game and looked like a dramatic final goal would seal a win for either team before a red card was given to Ward-Prowse who went from hero to villain after scoring Southampton’s equaliser. The game ended in a 3-1 Chelsea win, a score like that doesn’t tell the whole story of the match.
The prodigal son returned to Foxborough this weekend, a familiar face in a familiar place, sporting a different crest. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers played the New England Patriots on Sunday night as He returned to the Gillet Stadium for the first time. It was a close game and I think it very much lived up to the hype that it was given. I loved that Brady is still playing such pivotal roles within the sport and proving the doubters wrong.
