Leicester City remain top dogs in the Premier League after
Arsenal FC dropped points to Chelsea.

The Blues won the game 1-0 and continue the tradition of the
Arsenal curse.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has not beaten Chelsea in the
Premier League since 2011. The five year long hoodoo lingers on, despite the departure
of former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

Diego Costa was back to his usual self, scoring his typical styled
poached goal.

The Spaniard caused the Gunners defence all sorts of
problems, breaking away from Per Mertesacker and forcing the German to make a
sacrificial tackle on the last man.

Gabriel was another defender who could not keep up with Chelsea’s
pacey defence.

To rub salt further into the Arsenal wounds, former star
Cesc Fabregas put on a man of the match display, much to the displeasure of the
home fans.


Whoever organized a pre-season friendly between two of
Argentina’s biggest rivals should be has to be kidding themselves.

River Plate and Boca juniors are famous for their bitter
rivalry and unbelievable derby’s in the Superclasico.

Their hatred is formed from a rivalry which dates 100 years
back, as a community was separated by their economic status.

Only 17 players remained on the field, after a nasty series
of clashes between two teams ended in five dismissals.


Boca’s reds:

Jonathan Silva for a foul

Gino Peruzzi for a foul

Daniel Diaz for dissent against Patricio Loustau

River’s reds:

Maidana sent off for headbutting Tevez

Pisculichi for involving himself in brawl
