"Tottenham" continues its confident game from match to match. Now, "the Spurs' home dealt with" Newcastle ", without Kevin Nolan. Suffice it to drop one of the trio of Nolan, Barton Carroll as a "magpie" losers.

"Manchester United" came to visit, "Birmingham". The owners are renowned for their intransigence, so no one expected an easy match. And so it happened. The hosts played purely on the selection of the ball, and then hung up "splash" toward the area, hoping to lead Jerome.
The first half was boring fuss.
In the first half of the second half, the visitors were able to come forward. Gibson gave projectile Dimitar Berbatov and hit right on target.
A few minutes later the Bulgarian could take issue, but for the "Birmingham" played a bar.
"Sir Alex" fully seized the initiative, but there was no sense.
A minute before the end of normal time the hosts equalized! It does not matter that Zigic gave the hand pass and distinguished Lee Bowyer is caught offside. "Birmingham" blood and sweat earned point in the match.

But 5 minutes later Arshavin said Niklas same. Gave a pass to Dane, he shuffled two defenders and put the guests ahead.
Teams have completely forgotten about the middle of the field. The ball is tossed about the entire second half from gate to gate. We had a chance to score for both teams. After 78 minutes, I received a red card for unsportsmanlike conduct N'Zogbia.
However, it is not broken "latiks" and two minutes later the hosts leveled the score! More precisely, it made the player of "Arsenal" Skilachchi, who scored an own goal. So Londoners lost the chance in the past year to catch up on points Manchester clubs.
