I think the EPL is one of the hardest league's to guess the winner

I'll go with Man Utd

And Wigan to stay up again

I think City edges out United again.

Chelsea and Arsenal won't be consistent enough to challenge them.

I think it'll be down to the Manchester Clubs. Chelsea should contend, but I think they'll need time to settle in which will leave them in the 3rd. 4th is where it all goes to hell. Arsenal, Newcastle, Tottenham and Liverpool all have really good claims to earn that spot. Depending on coming moves Arsenal look the best on paper, but I really like what they're doing in Newcastle, and both AVB and Rodgers are managers I'm a large fan of with the talent to play the way they want to play.

Torres scores to give Chelsea the lead 1:0

Ivanovic is sent off harshly

At first I didn't think it was that bad, but after replays it is a red card in today's standard

This isn't an EPL game. Chelsea will have white numbers on the jerseys for EPL games, but Gold for FA Cup, CL, and I believe League Cup. But the standard #s for EPL.

I change my mind. Just saw the replay. Ivan deserved the red.

@vsk92: Check these out:

Last year:



See the font of the numbers? It's the same.

EDIT: Thanks, foy.

Does Ivanovic face any further suspension for this? I mean it's technically a friendly so no, right?

Torres has looked good, gets a goal and just had a good run there only to be bodychecked

He'll get at least a 3 game ban for violent conduct I would think, and I believe the ban will carry across all English games, therefore League Cup, FA Cup, PL etc

I honestly thought the message on Tevez's shirt was gonna be about the Falkland Islands.
