feelgood Top Five (Week 5)

Week 5 saw Arsenal take the top of the table after winning their third straight, while Liverpool, United & Chelsea all played to a draw. Manchester City showed what they were capable of doing with their new attack, beating Harry Redknapp’s side 6-0.

#5 – Denílson

The young Bazilian midfielder has had a very mature season after consistent starting roles. Denílson scored in the 86th minute to secure three points against Bolton. The 20-year-old is loving life as a starter and should make it interesting when Tomáš Rosický returns for the Gunners.

#4 – Richard Dunne

It was six in the City, as Manchester City demolished Portsmouth 6-0. Richard Dunne helped his club earn a cleansheet, while also scoring in the 19th minute to give his team a 2-0 lead.

#3 – David Di Michele

The 32-year-old Italian striker should see considerable amount of time in the pitch with newly appointed manager and fellow compatriot, Gianfranco Zola at the helm. Zola, who promised exciting football hasn’t disappointed with his team beating Newcastle 3-1. And it was the ex-Torino man, who scored a delightful double on his second game for the Hammers.

#2 – Michael Chopra

The English striker and former Newcastle player scored twice as a substitute in the dying minutes to beat Middlesbrough 2-0. His late goal antics is no surprise to the EPL, especially not with the Sunderland supporters.

#1 – Salomon Kalou

Salomon Kalou fired in his first goal of the season to secure a point against Manchester United, but most importantly – to keep Chelsea’s home unbeaten record intact. Kalou scored a header off Mikel John Obi’s free kick in the 79th minute to liven up the anxious Chelsea faithful. Kalou, who is yet to win over new manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari has definitely made a fine statement on Sunday.
