Rooney gives Celtic no chance

Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 victory against Celtic tonight at Old Trafford, as the Red Devils took advantage of the Scottish side’s limited attack. Dimitar Berbatov’s double should have been disallowed as both goals came from an offside position. But in the end, it didn’t matter as the on-fire, Rooney was inevitably going to put himself in the scoresheet one way or another.

Wayne Rooney was simply unstoppable tonight. “Wayne Rooney is simply unplayable. We tried to do everything to stop him,” Gordon Strachan told the UK Sun, “But when you are facing someone like that you just have to hold your hands up and say tonight we have come up against a world class player.”

Rooney’s first goal came, but was ruled offside. This was the third wrong judgment made by the linesmen. But even if Berba’s double were not counted for, United still would’ve won 2-0 (if Rooney’s first goal wasn’t disallowed). Rooney is in top form, which could lead United to narrow the gap between them and Chelsea with the Blues set to take on Liverpool & Hull City. The 22-year-old England striker has netted 8 goals in his last six matches, which has helped take the load off his Portuguese teammate. Cristiano Ronaldo’s  underperformance has been widely criticized both in the domestic league and in national duty since coming back from injury.

Meet Michael Mancienne

Chelsea face Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Saturday & Luiz Felipe Scolari could turn to the Chelsea youngsters to make up for his depleted Blues side. Among the new casualties for the Blues are José Bosingwa, Ashley Cole, Joe Cole, John Terry, Alex & Michael Ballack. If John Terry is not deemed fit tomorrow, then the Chelsea manager could turn to Branislav Ivanović, the Serbian centerhalf who made a great first impression on his debut against Aston Villa. 20 year-old, Michael Mancienne could also make his debut for the Blues.

Michael Mancienne, who was picked up by Chelsea when he was only 8 years-old has emerged as one of England’s top young prospects. However, the young centerhalf is yet to make a debut for his team. Mancienne spent the 07/08 campaign on-loan to Championship side, Queens Park Rangers and became a hit to QPR supporters. He is one of the gems of England’s U21 team and is highly-rated by U21 manager, Stuart Pearce.

His hard work could finally pay off this weekend, as he hopes to make his debut for Scolari’s Blues. Even if the 20-year-old does not start, he could still come off the bench to provide some aid for Chelsea’s back-four. Mancienne’s impressive displays have attracted a number of teams, including West Ham United, Portsmouth & Fulham.

feelgood fantasy picks: week 7

We visit Stamford Bridge in (Southwest) London for Week 7 with the Villans hoping to end Chelsea’s long home unbeaten record that spans four years. And if there is a team that could beat Chelsea at home, it is the men from Villa Park. Chelsea are missing depth up front, following another injury setback from Didier Drogba during the team’s midweek Champions League draw to CFR Cluj. Meanwhile, both Gabriel Agbonlahor & John Carew have been declared fit to face the Blues.

Edwin van der Sar is our choice as goalkeeper this weekend, as United look to shut down Paul Ince’s Blackburn side & get their second consecutive win this season. His teammate, Nemanja Vidić also makes our list as one of the central defenders.

Samba heads it in against Newcastle for a 2-1 win

Christopher Samba will look to enforce himself against United. The big Congolese defender was impressive against Newcastle last week and is a handful to defend against in set-pieces. Glen Johnson & Gareth Bale complete our back-four for this week. Two fullbacks, who are still looking to ignite for their teams this season.

Gerrard was Mr. 100 vs PSV during midweek

Two Liverpool players lead our midfield this week. Steven Gerrard scored his 100th goal for his club against PSV Eindhoven in midweek and will look to add more against Manchester City. And with the Reds on the edge of hitting their 1000th EPL goal (currently 999 goals), many will look to the Kop skipper to have that honor.

Javier Mascherano was rested this week and should be fit to play against Manchester City after missing the last three games. Geovanni, the former Manchester City man will look to sink an already sinking Tottenham ship after last week’s canonball shot against Arsenal. Antonio Valencia completes our midfield for this week.

Owen will look to put a smile on Toon supporters

If Tottenham are close to being sunk, then Newcastle might just as well be a part of that wreckage. Everton will be desperate to get back in the winning column after their defeat in the Merseyside derby. Michael Owen and his 3 goals this season have all come in vain, but the English marksman will do all he can to be Toon’s saviour & hopefully give his supporters a victory against the Toffees. Jermaine Defoe is having a superb season and should continue his hot streak against Stoke on Sunday.
