City smash Liverpool or Its Too Early To Tell AnythingBy: Rob | August 23rd, 2010
Manchester City have just smashed Liverpool 3-0, with a very very convincing performance at Eastlands. Liverpool meanwhile, apart from the odd spell, looked largely impotent. City opened the scoring with a well worked goal, where Johnson, Milner and Barry combined to put the latter in. They scored again right after half time thanks to a Micah Richards though it was credited to Tevez, while Tevez converted a penalty to kill the game half way through the second half.
All this was in contrast to week one, which has largely been a theme of the weekend. Last weekend, Liverpool looked pretty good against a lethargic looking Arsenal (who bounced back by scoring six against Blackpool) last week, while City were only kept in their opener with Spurs thanks to the heroics of their keeper Joe Hart.
Aston Villa won their opening game 3-0 and looked like they had easily shrugged off Martin O’Neill’s shock departure. Yet this week they suffered a 6-0 collapse against Newcastle in one of the most eyebrow raising results in a while.
Similar stories for Blackpool (comfortable win last week, destroyed this week) and West Brom (strong win this week after being humbled last) just go to prove, you absolutely cannot tell anything about the Premier League just yet, and its probably best to let it unfold a bit yet.
Still at least Wigan and Chelsea are proving to be consistent, if not in the same way.
