Phuket: EPL Roundup and TPN tipster Round 12

Phuket: EPL Roundup and TPN tipster Round 12

FOOTBALL: Chelsea crashed back to reality this past weekend after a 1-1 draw with Liverpool left them third in the table and, worst of all, may cost them their best – albeit controversial – defender.

In his first game back from suspension, John Terry scored in the 20th minute to put Chelsea up in the first half. But shortly after, Terry was carted off the field with a knee injury that will put him out of action for at least four weeks.

Uruguayan international Luis Suarez, continuing his top form for Liverpool, pulled one back in the 73rd minute to help the Reds take a share of the points.

In their second week at the top of the table, Manchester United took care of a strong Aston Villa side with Javier Hernandez scoring twice in the second half.

The Mexican international known as ‘Chicharito’ brought the Red Devils back from two goals down and continued his great play from the Champions League match last week.

The win gave United a nice two-point cushion against new number two team Manchester City, who defeated Spurs at home 2-1.

Two second half scores helped give Everton a 2-1 win against Sunderland, keeping them in fourth place but still four points back from Chelsea.

Meanwhile, surprise package West Bromwich Albion, currently fifth in the standings, survived a close call at the DW Stadium with their 2-1 win against Wigan last week. They stay step-for-step with Everton at 20-points and continue to be challengers for the UEFA Champions League spot.

In The Phuket News tipping competition, ‘tim at acorn’ pops back up in the monthly standings and leads with 43 points while ‘apollo131’ keps a steady 11-point lead in the overall standings.

The winner of the November competition will win a B3,000 voucher to spend at Australian Bar & Grill in Kata. The overall winner at the end of the year will win a brand new Honda Scoopy courtesy of AP Honda.
