WGM’s weekend wrap

Written by Ben Blaschke

For the first time in a while, it wasn’t all about Chelsea in the EPL with the current league leaders suffering a rare mishap with a 0-0 draw at Sunderland – opening the door for their main title rivals to make a move. In-particular, the Blues will be well aware of Manchester City’s performance as Manuel Pellegrini’s men crushed high flying Southampton 3-0 to close the gap to eight points.

In fact, it was good weekend for most of the EPL’s big guns with Manchester United cruising past Hull 3-0, Tottenham downing Everton 2-1 and Liverpool beating Stoke 1-0 albeit only thanks to a late goal to defender Glen Johnson.

In Spain, Real Madrid has set a new La Liga record of 16 consecutive wins after downing Malaga 2-1 on Saturday. Their incredible run, which began with a win over Atletico Madrid in September, has seen them score 59 goals while conceding just nine although they still sit just two points clear of old rivals Barcelona who won 1-0 at Valencia.

Our prediction last week that Mark Selby would win the UK snooker championship this week has already been proved wrong after he was stunned in the second round by David Morris, however former champion Ronnie O’Sullivan has blamed the tables for Selby’s elimination. Organizers are using four tables instead of two during the early rounds with O’Sullivan claiming a lack of atmosphere and poor quality tables will lead to even more upsets this week.

China’s Ding Junhui and Australia’s Neil Robertson are safely through however as they look to claim another big title.

Macau was the scene of the latest leg of the badminton world grand prix with India’s PV Sindhu beating Korea’s Kim Hyo Min in the final to claim the title. Sindhu won 21-12, 21-17 at the Tap Seac Multisport Pavilion to ensure her best result of the year.

And some big results in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers ending New England’s seven-game winning streak with a 26-21 win overnight, Philadelphia thrashing Dallas 33-10 and the Seahawks downing the 49ers 19-3.
