Probably the most interesting duel from the latest football clashes was the one between Chelsea and Manchester United. Chelsea was struggling to keep pace with the two teams in Manchester that dominate the battle for the first spot and desperately needed a win in order to close the gap a little.

The game was one of the most spectacular and thrilling we have seen in latest football. Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 advantage and it seemed like they were heading to an easy win. An own goal from Johnny Evans, a spectacular strike by Juan Mata and a header from David Luiz gave Chelsea the big edge. Manchester United received two penalties that Wayne Rooney executed with no hesitation and The Devils came right back into the match. The last minutes were dominated by United, who were trying to avoid a loss, and the persistence paid off when Javier Hernandez scored with a header for an epic comeback, with only six minutes to go.


Another interesting match from the latest football duels was the one played the next day between Liverpool and Tottenham. Liverpool is another big name in the Premier League that is struggling this year, so they needed the win badly, especially because they were playing at home. Liverpool dominated possession for the most of the game but could not create a lot of goal scoring opportunities. Tottenham waited and tried to get off on the brake.

The game was marked by the return from suspension of the Uruguay international Luis Suarez, after he received one of the harshest suspensions in latest football. He was banned to play for eight matches for racially abusing Patrice Evra. Suarez played in the second half and animated Liverpool’s offensive game, but it was not enough. Tottenham had a great opportunity to win the game in the final minutes, but Gareth Bale failed to defeat opponent goalkeeper Jose Manuel Reina.


Other important news in latest football comes from Italy, where AS Roma midfielder and fan favorite Daniele de Rossi signed a new contract with his team. De Rossi is one of the best players in Roma’s squad and one of the best players in Serie A at his position. The new contract will keep the 28-year-old in Italy’s capital until 2017. This is a very important move for the club, as many big clubs in Europe were interested in him. Keeping the two legends Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi together for the next years was vital for their reconstruction project.
