It was the worst possible result for Chelsea against Manchester City yesterday, as it put Roberto Mancini’s men seven points ahead in second place. The worry now for Chelsea is that Arsenal are just two points behind in fifth place, while Tottenham are just one point behind and play their game in hand away to West Ham tonight. If Spurs win tonight they will feel like they have won the jackpot at an online casino and move into Third Place.
The Sunday papers are full of Joe Cole transfer news today. He is definitely the hottest player on the market at the moment, especially as he could be available on a free transfer. Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp said last week that Cole had agreed a deal with someone, but not Spurs, but the some papers still have them in the running.
The Mirror leads with an “exclusive” that Cole has agreed a four year deal with Arsenal worth £100,000 a week. They say that the Gunners have beaten Man City and Liverpool to a deal simply because Cole is not keen on leaving London.
