How The Title Chase Has Unfolded Over The Past 9 Months

By on April 23, 2011

The past few months of football have absolutely been tremendous, so let’s check out the most key events in the past 9 months, I shall start with August 2010!

August 2010

August 2010 will certainly be remembered for the amazing transfer bargaining and the horrible deals done in the Summer Transfer window. From the hits like Spurs getting Rafael van der Vaart, to Manchester United’s unforgettable 8 million pound signing of Portuguese striker/winger Bebe. In the Premier League, this month is probably most remembered for Arsenal and Liverpool’s encounter, with two debut boys getting sent off: Joe Cole and Lauren Koscielny, whilst Pepe Reina made a blunder on day 1 of the season.

1. Chelsea 9 points

September 2010

Berbatov’s hat trick was an absolutely amazing moment in September, with his overhead kick also being one of the best goals of the season to date. Berbatov really came to form in September, but Odemwingie had an amazing month in September, winning the player of the month accolade and even helping in securing a 3-2 win against Arsenal!

October 2010

October 2010, where Chelsea made an ‘unassailable’ lead, which was dominance in the month from the side from London, sweeping all before them. A high point would be when they triumphed against Arsenal at the Bridge 2-0 with Didier Drogba scoring a terrific back heel in the match. A man who was on form in October was Van der Vaart, with him scoring 3 goals and an assist to cap off a wonderful month for the Dutchman. To top that off for Tottenham, it was an incredible, if not absolutely mesmerizing performance by Gareth Bale against Inter Milan at the San Siro, with the Welshman scoring an incredible hat-trick.

November 2010

Remembered most probably thanks to two matches, Arsenal vs Tottenham and Liverpool vs Chelsea. Well, I’ll start with the London derby, as Arsenal led 2-0 before Tottenham staged a comeback and won the tie 3-2, a memorable match. And the Liverpool-Chelsea match? That was simply Fernando Torres at his very best, grabbing two goals for Liverpool, oh where have the goals gone? Bolton had an incredible November, moving up the Premier League table.

December 2010

A brief ascend by Arsenal towards the top of the EPL, with Samir Nasri spearheading the gunners and him scoring a few goals. His top performance came against Fulham, where he scored two solo goals to almost single handedly win the game for the North Londoners. And it’s time for the transfer window to open again!

1. Manchester United 40 points

2. Arsenal 38 points

January 2011

It really didn’t get any bigger than Fernando Torres’ transfer (well, mathematically, Ronaldo’s is bigger, but think British record) as the 50 million pounds paid for the Spaniard emerged as the biggest talking point of the January transfer window.

1. Manchester United 47 points

February 2011

Arsenal’s first leg 2-1 triumph will hardly be noted by many, but that’s the code that can absolutely crack Barcelona’s defence. February ran by without too much action and Scott Parker took full advantage, grabbing assists and a few goals to earn him the Premier League player of the month award. But who can forget Rooney’s incredible overhead kick, that certainly gave Physics a run for it’s money

End of February Table

1. Manchester United 60 points

2. Arsenal 57 points

3. Chelsea 51 points

March 2011

Remembered for Arsenal’s crazy decline out of all the competitions, as they were knocked out from the League Cup final, FA Cup and Champions League and it was David Luiz proving to be an absolute star in March, as he was a standout Chelsea player grabbing a couple of incredible goals

End of March Table

1. Manchester United 63 points

2. Arsenal 59 points
