Champions League drama is out of the way and what a midweek we had with some great goals all around and somewhat disappointing game between Barcelona and Inter, the game didn’t really live up to expectation, but we have a treat this weekend in the Premier League.
The big news is that Adebayor is banned for three games after his celebration and stamp on Van Persie.

Prediction Match of The Week:
This is a no-brainer, the game of the week has to be the Manchester Derby, although the Chelsea-Spurs fans might have other ideas.But the history and money involved (not to mention Tevez) in the Manchester derby is bound to produce some fireworks, will Tevez be fit to play and score a last minute winning goal? will Rooney go bonkers again if he was substituted? or will Owen steal the show? all this questions need answering and that’s exactly what’s going to happen this Sunday.
Utd had a tough game against Beksitas and though Rooney does not agree with the boss, he will be delighted to be fully fit for this match.Berbatov should start again as Sir Alex has stated that Owen must remain patient as Berba-Rooney is the current choice up front.
Sir Alex has stoked the heat even more by suggesting that he doesn’t care if Tevez plays or not, because “Adebayor is the main threat and he is not playing”.
Carlos Tevez says he anticipates a warm welcome from the Utd fans and for that i have to ask, what are you drinking Tevez?
It’s not so much that he left to join City but the manner in which he has done it and the constant complain against Sir Alex that he was used sparingly, i mean it’s Man Utd..what did you expect? I don’t think the fans are going to give him the welcome he expects.
Adebayor’s moment of madness has ensured that Hughes has a headache up front with Robinho out and Tevez still 50-50 on his chances of playing, Bellamy however has been a livewire and City should not be too concerned.
