Phuket: EPL Round-Up and The Phuket News Tipster Predictions, Round 13

FOOTBALL: Manchester City won big and took over the top spot while Chelsea’s woes continued this week.

The 5-0 romp that City put on Aston Villa last week gave them the three points needed to jump over Manchester United in the standings. Led by Argentine strike contingent Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez, who each scored twice, City are now the only unbeaten team in the Premier League.

United, meanwhile, suffered their first loss of the season at Norwich thanks to a goal by former Man U trainee Anthony Pilkington in the 60th minute. He spent a year in the Red Devils youth academy a decade ago.

The win extended Norwich’s unbeaten run to six matches and puts them at 13th on the table.

Chelsea have seen their strong hold on the top of the table slip away in recent weeks after losing John Terry, first by suspension and then injury. The Blues continued their average form and extended a four-game winless streak with a loss at West Bromwich Albion.

A day after his grandmother died, West Brom’s Shane Long scored a header in the 10th minute against Chelsea and honoured her by revealing a T-shirt that said read “RIP Nan”.

Peter Odemwingie scored another header in the second half to give West Brom the match and a deserved if unexpected fourth place on the table.

In other scores, Arsenal defeated Tottenham 5-2 and moved up to sixth place, while Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Wigan put them at 11th place.
