Shakhtar 1 - 2 Lokomotiv Moskva

A largely second string Shakhtar side went down 2-1 at home to a decent Lokomotiv side. With many first teamers rested after the SMFA Champs Cup victory over Roma, the second string were again given the chance to impress in the league but largely failed.

With just 1 point from the opening 2 league games, Saturdays game at home to Kiev is becoming a must win to kick start the Russian league season.

Srna, Hubschman, Rat, Fernandinho, Jadson and Luiz Adriano are expected to return to the side.

After returning from the 8-3 thrashing over Recreativo, Manager Daniel Vaz faced a well groomed Levante on Wednesday evening. And after scoring 2 in the Recreativo match, Forward Sergio Garcia was one to look out for in this match according to the manager.

As both teams hit the field both Managers looked on in suspence for what was in store for their teams. As the game kicked off, it was Betis' Emana who had a first glimpse of goal with a spectacular over head that was just inches over the crossbar. As the match went on and closing in on the Half time wistle it was still 0-0, but that could of changed as Real Betis' Portuguese Veteran Ricardo was at full stretch to save a powerful shot by Del Moral.

After the break the match was steared completely to Betis' favour with Mehmet Aurelio making powerful moves through the middle. But at 57 minutes through, Argentina's Pavone struck gold with a well placed header to give Betis the 1-0 lead, and on 73 minutes through Pavone himself made sure the game was over after curling in a shot from outside the area. Although Levante's Soriano scored 4 minutes later, there was no stoping Betis as they finished the match 2-1 and securing they're number one place on the Spanish Second Division Tables with Pavone taking top honors for the match.

Liverpool continued their unbeaten start to the season last night as they defeated Sunderland 4-0 at Anfield. Goals from Aguero (2), Kuyt and Benayoun sealed maximum points for the Reds as they climb the table looking to keep in touch with title rivals Manchester United and Manchester City.

Liverpool were favourites for the game but you wouldn't have guessed it from the opening exchanges. Sunderland looked dangerous and the home side looked shaky at the back. Darren Bent thought he had given Sunderland the lead on 19 minutes but his clever chip clipped the bar and went over. One minute later and his strike partner Bobo went close, dribbling past two defenders but his shot missed the target. The woodwork then came to Liverpool's rescue once again - this time Andy Reid the unlucky party. The home supporters were growing concerned but when Liverpool's first chance arrived, it was taken. Sergio Aguero drifted away from his marker, turned onto his right foot and slammed a low shot into the bottom corner, past Britain's most expensive goalkeeper Craig Gordon. Sunderland's afternoon went from bad to worse just two minutes before the half time whistle, as Frank Lampard's perfectly weighted pass gave Kuyt a free run on goal. The Dutchman rounded Gordon with ease and slotted home Liverpool's second of the game. Perhaps fortunately, the Reds took a two goal lead into the break.

The Black Cats played well in the first half and knew they had to take their chances in the second if they were to get anything from this game. Lee Cattermole continued their wastefulness early after the interval as he found himself in acres of space, but fired wide. On 51 minutes, Gokdeniz Karadeniz cut inside his marker and his dipping effort brought the best out of Gordon. The game was effectively ended on 72 minutes as the hosts took a three goal lead. Some good work down the left from Karadeniz ended with the Turk finding Sergio Aguero unmarked on the edge of the area, and the Argentina international smashed the ball into the roof of the net. Yossi Benayoun added insult to injury five minutes later when Dirk Kuyt's shot was parried by Gordon, the Isreali was left with the simplest of chances to make it Liverpool 4-0 Sunderland, and that's the way it stayed. It wasn't all good news for Liverpool though. With Jamie Carragher already out injured, Martin Skrtel was sent off on 83 minutes for dangerous play, leaving question marks over who will come in for the next few games against Roma (Friday), Aston Villa (Saturday) and Harvey's hometown club Grimsby Town (Monday).

UNITED DESTROY FULHAM

Manchester United continued to remain unbeaten in all competitions with a thrashing of Fulham at Old Trafford today. United play Everton in the English Shield on Monday away.

Fulham began the better today with a quality shot from Irishman Damien Duff producing a brilliant save from Edwin Van Der Sar. As Fulham dominated the opening spells, Dickson Etuhu blasted agonisingly over the bar from five yards after a parried shot from Viduka. It was Fulham who took a deserved lead after dominating spells in the opening ten minutes. Prem legend Mark Viduka casually passed the ball passed Van Der Sar after being released into space by Etuhu. Experience in front of goal shown there. United were lifted by the fans and Darren Fletcher equalised for the Red Devils with a quick burst past two defenders and he lashed home from 15 yards. United gained confidence and the one and only Ryan Giggs smashed a half volley from the edge of the area into the roof of the net to send the United fans wild. Ten minutes later Wayne Rooney outclassed Konchesky and rolled the ball around Mark Schwarzer and passed the ball into the empty net. 3-1 United 30 minutes played. United finished off a stunning turn around in style in the first half, Antonio Valencia racing clear of the Fulham defence and smashed the ball high into the net past the helpless Schwarzer. Half Time United 4-1 Fulham.

United came out determined to have another high scoring win under boss Golden and they almost scored again three minutes after the restart. Ryan Giggs shot inches wide of the Fulham goal. Antonio Valencia ran down the wing and with a piece of magic he delivered a brilliant cross for Dimitar Berbatov who nodded the ball into the net for 5-1. Two minutes later Wayne Rooney’s pace took him past two defenders and he smashed the ball into the top corner. 6-1 51 minutes gone. A minute later Damien Duff amazingly smashed a long range shot from outside the box which came back off the bar. Duff then shot inches wide moments later as Fulham pressed for goal back. Fletcher shot inches wide moments later for Man Utd. United made it seven in the 68th minute, Dimitar Berbatov turning the embarrassed Hangeland placing the ball into the corner. United left the best for last and Ryan Giggs cut in side his marker on the right hand side and curled a shot from twenty yards into the top corner. Full Time United 8-1 Fulham.

Ryan has already made a bunch of new signings since taking over at Real, Nemanja Vidic was the first player to join Ryan in Spain with Raul Albiol and Lassana Diarra leaving for England, next were Issiar Dia, Gabriel Torje and Yann Sommer who all joined for cash. The next big player to join was Andrei Arshavin from Arsenal who joined which saw Rafael Van Der Vaart join Arsenal. A few players have also left Spain which include, Cristiano Ronaldo who jumped to Barcelona which saw Andre Iniesta and Dymtro Chygrynskiy join Real. Kaka also left for Werder Bremen which saw Ozil and Petr Metresacker move to Spain.

United remain on top

United remain on top in the Premier league after a comfortable 2-1 win at Ewood Park yesterday evening. United play rivals Liverpool away in the Carling Cup quarter final at Anfield tomorrow night and it is expected to be a cracking match.

Ryan Giggs produced the first save of the match out of Paul Robinson, his free kick curling around the wall and heading for the top corner but for a wonderful save from Robinson. Michael Carrick blazed over moments later after being well positioned following a defensive mix up. Rio Ferdinand went forward for a United corner and he fluffed a good chance right in front of the goal. But United took the lead when Ibrahim Afellay netted another goal for the season in his first start in the Premier League. He has been amazing in the other competitions when the big stars of the team are getting rested and today he showed why he should be in the first eleven. He finished high into the net after some brilliant work down the right by Antonio Valencia and made it 1-0 in the 38th minute. Half time, Blackburn 0-1 United.

United were domineering in the second half, as in the first. Van Der Sar comfortably caught several hopeful balls from Blackburn inside the area. United went forward and Wayne Rooney produced an opportunity for himself, but the wonderful Englishman could only drag his shot wide. Fellow Englishman Michael Carrick made it 2-0 in the 64th minute, with a thumping low drive from twenty yards which Robinson could get nowhere near. Ibricic shot just over for Blackburn before Gael Givet pulled a goal back for Blackburn as they tried to salvage a point from the match. United held on however and the final score was Blackburn 1-2 United.

Barcelona score 5

Barcelona continued their good form, increasing their unbeaten run to 6 games. With injuries still keeping Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of the side, Edison Cavani and Aaron Hunt kept their place in the starting XI.

Barcelona Starting XI:

Valdes

Puyol Pique Abidal

de Rossi

Hunt Xavi Cahill Pedro

Messi Cavani

_44468890_xavi_afp300.jpg

Deportivo 0-5 Barcelona

Barcelona demolished Deportivo with a confident display of attacking football last night. It was a cagey start to the game, but afer 16mins, Pedro found space in the box, and was picked out perfectly, to head the ball home, and make it 1-0 Barca. From then on in, it was all Barcelona. After 25mins, Lionel Messi carved his way through the defence, going past 3 defenders, before neatly finishing in the bottom corner to make it 2-0 Barca. Victor Valdes didn't have one proper save to make in the first half

It was the same story in the 2nd half, although the Barca faithful had to wait a bit longer for the goals. After 66 minutes, captain Xavi miss hit the ball, but the keeper wasn't paying attention, and the ball sqiurmed under his body. 10 minutes later, Xavi got his 2nd of the game, seizing on an error by the defence, and rounding the keeper before finishing. Edinson Cavani continued his great scoring form with his 7th goal in 9 games, with a powerful right footed shot on the 78 minute mark. 5-0 Barcelona

Next up for Barca is Valencia and Zaragoza, extremely important games, in an ultra tight league, the top 8 covered by just 4 points. Barca find themselves in 4th, just 1 point behind the top 3 who are all on 23 points.

Liverpool came out on top of an epic battle at Stamford Bridge last night, running out 8-3 winners over Chelsea in their own back yard. The score was a little flattering for the reds but nonetheless they deserved the three points that keep them 2nd in the Barclays Premier League table, 4 points behind leaders Manchester United, who they will face on Monday in the English Shield Quarter Final. Michael Ballack was undoubtedly the star man on his return to Stamford Bridge, netting a hat trick against his former employers.

The emphatic win for Liverpool looked ominous from as early as the fifth minute when they took an early lead. Sergio Aguero went past Terry and Ferreira as if they weren't there and then had the finish to match to round off a great solo effort. While Chelsea were still recovering from the opener they found themselves two behind, this time Michael Ballack on the scoresheet. The Germany captain was picked out by another former blue, Frank Lampard, and Rene Adler couldn't keep the low strike out. Lampard almost went from provider to scorer soon after when his stinging shot had beaten Adler, but the woodwork came to Chelsea's rescue. Steve Mandanda was called into action for the first time on 25 minutes, denying a John Terry header with a fingertip save. Just as the Blues were starting to get back into the game, Liverpool struck again. A corner caused havoc in the area and with the home defence unable to clear, Jamie Carragher prodded the ball through the legs of Adler. The away fans couldn't believe what they were seeing. Chelsea, to their credit, fought back very well and got their reward just before the half time whistle. Michael Essien's superb effort struck the bar but the ball fell kindly to John Obi Mikel who couldn't miss. 3-1 to the away side at half time.

Liverpool's lead was cut down to just one goal when, 5 minutes into the second half, Lukas Podolski thumped in a great strike which left Steve Mandanda with no chance. The home supporters were jubilant and could see a way back into the game. The old adage goes 'You're at your most vulnerable when you've just scored', and it was proved correct in this case. Just two minutes after Podolski's goal, Liverpool regained their two goal advantage. A curling corner from the right was met by the head of Martin Skrtel who rose above Terry to nod his first of the season. 4-2 to Liverpool. A manic 8 minutes then ensued where the Bridge was treated to four goals. First, Liverpool forward Sergio Aguero put his side 5-2 ahead with a toe poke from close range before Michael Ballack added his second on 59 minutes with a diving header. The German was now on a hat-trick and he wasted little time getting it. Immediately from the restart, the Blues lost possession and it resulted in a Ballack header at the far post. Liverpool fans were in dreamland watching their side lead 7-2. Young striker Daniel Sturridge netted for Chelsea on 64 minutes, taking advantage of Glen Johnson's weak backpass, rounding Mandanda and slotting home his first league goal of the season. 12 minutes from time, Yossi Benayoun added insult to injury with the goal of the game, hammering a shot in off the bar, leaving Rene Adler stranded. Gokdeniz Karadeniz almost got in on the act later but his woodwork-bound shot crashed straight back into open play, and the referee blew for full time. A great win for Liverpool who go into Monday's cup quarter final in high spirits.

Liverpool made a good recovery from Wednesday's 5-1 defeat to Arsenal with a thumping of their own. The Reds put six past mid-table Pompey at Anfield and moved within two points of leaders Manchester United. Sergio Aguero was the star man for Liverpool as he netted his first hat-trick in English football, taking his season tally to 11 in 13 games since his move from Atletico Madrid.

The home fans were looking for a reaction from Wednesday's 5-1 defeat and the response was immediate. Yossi Benayoun beat his man on the right hand side and the Israeli cut inside, picked out the unmarked Sergio Aguero who couldn't miss from a matter of yards. Pompey weren't deterred though and they should have had a penalty on 3 minutes. Tal Ben Haim was brought down by Glen Johnson but referee Jong Chul Kwon waved away protests. The South Coast outfit didn't need a penalty to get on the scoresheet however. On 7 minutes young Irish defender Marc Wilson silenced the Anfield crowd with a powerful shot from outside the area which flew into the corner. Liverpool's great start was getting undone by their opponents and the away side came within inches of edging infront. Former Benfica midfielder Hassan Yebda did all the hard work rounding the goalkeeper but the angle was against him and he could only hit the outside of the post. Steve Mandanda then came to the rescue on 11 minutes with a fine save at full stretch to keep out Jamie O'Hara's effort. Somewhat against the run of play the home side regained their lead on 17 minutes. A neat one two between Lampard and Ballack allowed Lampard to run into the space and his perfectly-timed through ball slipped in Dirk Kuyt to poke the ball between the legs of David James. Nothing much to note from the rest of the first period and Liverpool took a 2-1 lead into the break.

The Reds looked like a different side in the second half and they were relentlessly attacked Pompey. It took just seven minutes for Sergio Aguero to grab his second of the game as he took advantage of poor communication between Wilson and Ben Haim. The Argentine was in fine form and looked like he had adapted to the Premier League, and he completed his hat trick on 57 minutes. After already scoring with his right and left, Aguero rose high to meet a Karadeniz cross and nodded past David James into the bottom corner. Debt-ridden Portsmouth were all over the place defensively, Gokdeniz Karadeniz turned from provider to goalscorer on 59 minutes with the simplest of finishes. Pompey gave possession away immediately from their own kick off. Yossi Benayoun again beat Vanden Borre and his cross picked out the late-arriving Frank Lampard to head past England team mate David James. Those 4 goals in just 8 minutes killed off Pompey's chances, although the scoreline would have been much more emphatic had David James not made a string of fine saves late on. The former Liverpool keeper may have conceded six goals but he was certainly the best player for Pompey in what was quite a poor performance on the day.
