No Christmas Break at EPL

I thought the football season gas gone for Christmas break so I didn't bother to open the sports section that I often checked every time there’s an upcoming game whether it is their league games or the Champions League. But to my surprise the Premier League don’t seem to know what Christmas is all about since they still have games last 26 Dec and 29 Dec. And if I wasn't watching the news on TV, I wouldn't know it and will miss again Manchester City’s game again.

Man City is already seven points behind city rival and league leader ManU as they lost away to Sunderland last 26 Dec. And their game last night against Norwich City was a nerve racking match right up to the added injury time which they eventually prevail. At first, I thought they’ll have a comfortable win as Man City went to an early 2-0 lead within four minutes after kick-off, courtesy of Dzeko. But Norwich was able to maintain their composure and fought back up to the end despite conceding two quick goals. 

It was an entertaining match yet very stressful especially in the last 10 minutes of the game just right after Norwich made its third goal and is trying to close the gap as The Blues was forced to play the second half with 10-man when Nasri was given a straight red card just before the half time whistle was blown.
