Week 10 Review

The Good: A Comfortably Slumping Chelsea

Now that they lost yet again to West Ham, Chelsea almost seems comfortable that they are currently 15th in the premier league with 10 games gone. It was their fifth loss of the season and the champions won’t be having relief next week where they will face off against Liverpool. Additionally, the Blues will face an automatic FA fine after receiving seven yellow cards during the loss to the Hammers.

It just goes to show how much the team is almost in shambles too. Matic was sent off after being booked twice in nine minutes before the break, and Mourinho joined him after speaking to referee Jon Moss at half-time. The manager was seen at the stands among West Ham fans (see pic. Below) before disappearing entirely.

Australia advances into Rugby World Cup Final

Adam Ashley-Cooper scored a hat-trick for Australia.

Australia advanced into the Rugby World Cup Final and sets up a dream match against New Zealand.

It is the first time man-of-the-match Ashley-Cooper will have the chance to play in a World Cup final in his third attempt, and the winger was lapping up the moment after the full-time whistle, while paying tribute to Argentina’s never-say-die approach.

“We knew they’d play from everywhere on the field and they did that tonight,” he said.

That was exactly what Argentina did. Deemed “fiery” by some and “suicidal” by others, Los Pumas had made a series of costly mistakes early that would have cost them the game.

But they refused to yield and Nicolas Sanchez’s flawless boot – he kicked five penalties in all – saw them trail by seven points with 26 minutes to go.

Roared on by a passionate support that included football World Cup winner Diego Maradona, Argentina had chances in the second half as they took control up front and utilised their explosive runners.

But they lacked the composure to exploit several possible overlaps even after beginning to win scrum battles and the victories that come with it. As such, Ashley-Cooper took the opening and completed a hat-trick of tries late on to secure victory.

Now, with two World Cups victory under each of their respective belts, either Australia or New Zealand will look forward to being the first three-time Rugby World Cup Champions.

Roma goes the top of Serie A table

Roma won 2-1 at Fiorentina on Sunday for their fourth straight league win and leapfrogged their opponents into first place in Serie A in the process.

Chelsea’s on-loan winger Mohamed Salah, who had spent the second half of last season playing on loan for the Viola, silenced the crowd at the Artemio Franchi stadium by scoring Roma’s opener in the sixth minute.

Fiorentina had a good chance to pull level in the 16th minute when Nikola Kalinic saw Roma keeper Wojciech Szczesny off his line but his lobbed effort went over the bar.

Gervinho doubled the visitors’ lead in the 34th minute and, three minutes from time, Roma had Salah sent off for a second yellow card and Fiorentina reduced the arrears with seconds remaining through substitute Khouma Babacar.

Fiorentina, who have not beaten Roma since April 2012, ran out of time as their perfect run at home in the domestic competition came to a halt.

Victory for Roma lifted them two points clear of Napoli, Fiorentina, Inter Milan and Lazio – who occupy second to fifth on 18 points.
