I can't quite remember us having so many goal laden games between the top teams in the EPL. It's usually picky and tight with a ll sorts of tactics from the managers chocking the life and entertainment value out of the games. This season though, it's been anything but.
However, at 3-0 down yesterday, the game kind of had that look of a one-sided affair, at least in terms of the scoreline. We've been magnificent throughout this big game period but have been unfortunate at times so the the trend seemed destined to go on until Sturridge brought down Evra in the box. Wayne Rooney made it 3-1 and suddenly it was game on.
I couldn't believe our luck when Webb pointed to the spot again, this time because Welbeck was tripped by Ivanovic. Wayne made it 3-2 and now the game had an inevitability about it. On came Scholes and Chicharito and before long it was 3-3. The Mexican yet again turning up with the goods in an important fixture.
There was all of 7 minutes left after Hernandez drew us level and at that point, given how well we'd played, I wanted the fourth goal. Sadly it wasn't to be but in the end, I'll take the point, if not for the fact that we never really seem to get anything out of games at Stamford Bridge regardless of what form we're in. So given that at one point we were 3-0 down, kudos to the team for not letting their heads drop and chipping away to ensure that we take a point from a ground we usually get nothing from.
We've got Liverpool on Saturday next and given that right now we have most of our players back, I'd like to think that only a win will do for us on the day.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!
