Birmingham 1 Arsenal 2
Semi shocking result today with Birmingham not making ground on Chelsea and Liverpool. Controversial refereeing as well apparently. Shame I missed the game.
This is a second defeat in a row for Birmingham. It seems that the unwanted 2nd mid season break due to the U20 world cup has broken their momentum. As well as injuries to key players.
Still they have a game in hand vs Everton that has now become a must win game.
They trail Chelsea by 3 points and 1 goal on the GD. They trail Liverpool by 2 points and 1 goal on the GD.
Next is the midweek round of games for match day 11 with
Arsenal v Chelsea
Bristol v Birmingham
Everton v Liverpool
Notts v City
The crucial game in hand that might decide the title and relegation place will take place on 9th of September and by then the top 3 teams will be level on the number of games played. So the table will speak the truth.
