Chelsea Extend Lead in Unpredictable Premier League Weekend

Aston Villa won at Old Trafford for the first time since 1983 moving them into 3rd in the Premier League and leaving Manchester United 3 points behind Chelsea.

Gabriel Agbonlahor scored the only of the game, early in the first half, when Ashley Young was able to get a cross in on his right foot from the left wing.

Manchester United dominated the possession but barely tested Brad Friedel in the Aston Villa goal. Dimitar Berbatov the only player forcing a good save from the experienced American.

It was arguably Aston Villa's best performance this season as they defended well as a team. This game last season infamously saw Federico Macheda score a vital stoppage time equaliser in their successful title run. But it was not to be this evening as neither Wayne Rooney or substitutes Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov failed to register a goal for Manchester United.

This has been the most unpredictable weekend in the Premier League this season, ourselves only getting 2 tips correct today. Chelsea were held by Everton, Manchester City were held at Bolton while Tottenham suffered a home defeat to Wolverhampton.

Arsenal can move back into 3rd position with a point at Liverpool tomorrow, while they can move into 2nd by winning their 2 games in hand on Manchester United.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United have great opportunities to get back to winning ways during the week as they host Portsmouth and Wolves respectively. Be sure to check out our Premier League Tips for those games and the other half dozen games midweek.
