It was an interesting week of football to say the least. We have a few shake-ups in rankings as Man City is starting to crack and Inter Milan are on fire. The winter transfer winter has been quiet a little too quiet, so look for something big to happen in coming the days. With now only a half of season remaining the race for the top of the table in most domestic leagues should be a good one.
Just Missed: PSG, Tottenham, Zenit St Petersburg, FC Basel, Napoli
Chelsea continue to hold onto the final spot in the rankings, again there is a lot of pressure coming from PSG and Tottenham. The Blues would like to get to their Feb 5th showdown against United riding a big winning streak. Adding Gary Cahill will help sure-up their defense. (10-5)
9. Inter Milan
A big derby win has Inter’s win streak at 6 games in a row. Ranieri is working wonders with Inter and if they can go out an acquire a big name like say, Carlos Tevez then all bets are off. (nr)
7. AC Milan
Milan had 67% of the possession, had 16 shots and 10 corners against Inter. The only thing missing was a goal, that’s why Milan fans should worry too much. However another body in the midfield could be a helpful addition during the transfer window. (6-14)
Match of the Upcoming Week: 1/22 – Man City v. Tottenham
