SALAH PROVES POINT TO FORMER EMPLOYERS


Mohamed Salah’s move to Chelsea in January 2014 was seen as a big step following his fine displays with FC Basel. The Egyptian’s time at Stamford Bridge would, however, turn out to be frustrating and disappointing. Now at Liverpool after finding success with Fiorentina and Roma, Salah came up against his former employers on Saturday evening and got the lead for his 10th league goal of the season. Though it ended 1-1 at Anfield, the 25-year old has demonstrated that Chelsea were wrong to let him leave.


LOS BLANCOS WORK HARD AGAINST MALAGA


Real Madrid had a fine week in Europe where they crushed APOEL Nicosia 6-0 in Cyprus. Coming into the weekend facing bottom side Malaga was thus supposed to be an easy pass but it didn’t go that way with the Andalusian club coming back on two occasions.  At 2-2 the game was open and it took Cristiano Ronaldo – who scored from a rebound after missing a spot kick on 75 minutes, to get the winner. The nature of the result might not have been pleasing to Zinedine Zidane but the three points matter most.


SCHALKE COMEBACK IN MAGNIFICIENT FASHION


It was derby time in the German Bundesliga on Saturday as Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 took on each other at the Signal Iduna Park. It was all about BVB in the first half as they raced to a 4-0 lead inside the opening 25 minutes. One would think its game over for Schalke but the Gelsenkirchen outfit did a superb comeback in the second half, scoring four goals in the last 30 minutes of the game through Guido Burgstaller, Amine Harit, Daniel Caligiuri and Naldo.


ARSENAL DIG DEEP AT BURNLEY 


Arsenal failed to get anything in their trip to Cologne in the Europa League last Thursday and looked forward to league action against Burnley. The Clarets should easily be beaten on paper but they’ve proved to be a thorn in the flesh under Sean Dyche. It was that way again on Sunday at Turf Moor with the Gunners needing a last-minute controversial penalty from Alexis Sanchez to seal all three points.


CITY KEEP PROVING THEIR TITLE CREDENTIALS




Manchester City have been flying high in the Premier League but had a big test when they travelled to John Smith’s Stadium to face Huddersfield Town. Nicolas Otamendi gave the hosts the lead by putting the ball into his own net just before halftime. Sergio Aguero equalised from the spot after the break and the Citizens tried to take the lead but it wasn’t forthcoming. The breakthrough eventually came six minutes to the end when Raheem Sterling pocked the ball in from a rebounded Gabriel Jesus shot. It was a hard-fought victory for Pep Guardiola but his team still hold a comfortable eight-point lead at the top.


SEVILLA TURN THE TABLE AGAIN


It wasn’t too long ago that Sevilla pulled a stunning comeback from three goals down against Liverpool in the Uefa Champions League to draw 3-3. This weekend away to Villarreal, Los Rojiblancos fell behind through strikes from Cedric Bakambu and Carlos Bacca but Eduardo Berizzo’s men still had the courage to fight back once again and scored three goals within 12 minutes for a fantastic 3-2 win.


VALENCIA FRUSTRATE BARCELONA 


Valencia were in impressive form heading into the game against Barcelona as they sat just four points behind the leaders in second place. It’s indeed been an inspirational season for Los Che who narrowly avoided relegation last term. Barca were the more dominant of two sides but Valencia took the lead on the hour mark via Rodrigo. Their Catalan opponents could be angry at seeing a clear Lionel Messi goal in the first half disallowed but parity would be restored eight minutes from time through old Valencia boy Jordi Alba and 1-1 was how it ended.
