Football Action

There were three games on September 26 that I was following religiously, and my 3 teams won all 3 games. Yippee!

Liverpool’s Torres showed stunning footwork to slot in a first (12th minute), before Geovanni's volley leveled matters (15). Torres then dribbled around Hull’s Boaz Myhill to restore the Reds' lead (28) and rolled in to complete his treble after latching on to a clever Yossi Benayoun pass (47). Then Steven Gerrard's cross found the net (61), followed by Ryan Babel tapping in Dirk Kuyt's cross (88) and finally Babel (again) unknowingly deflecting in Albert Riera's late shot (90+1) – Liverpool giving hapless Hull a 6-1 trouncing. Warning to Man U: Don't get too comfy where you are sitting right now in the EPL Table! We are hot on your heels...

Fulham were the better of the two teams, but Arsenal won it when Cesc Fabregas clipped a pass for Robin van Persie to take a touch and fire home (52).

Across the border into Scotland, Celtic played a boring game against St Mirren and the match only came to life when first McCourt (27) and then Maloney (78) strike with two great goals.
