The unexpected took place at the English Premier League. Newcastle United managed a 3-2 victory against Chelsea, making me lose the bet I placed on Chelsea’s victory.
The main hero of this match was the midfielder Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United, who scored two goals, in the 68th and 90th minute of the match, after his teammate Jonas Gutierrez added the first goal for New Castle in the 41st minute. As for Sissoko’s performance, the manager Alan Pardew stated that he “walked into this club like a giant and played like a giant”.
Moreover, Pardew affirmed that this was a win with a “French feel” and that with those two impressive goals Moussa Sissoko has handsomely paid back for the chance of joining the team.
Here you have a video with the summary of the match:
On the other hand, Chelsea fought hard to maintain the balance on the scoring board. In the 55th minute, the balance was reestablished by Frank Lampart, who scored the first goal for Chelsea. Six minutes later his teammate, Juan Mata, added the second goal, which was also the last one for them.
All in all, this was a truly spectacular match, with plenty of surprising, but at the same time ravishing moments. Even if Chelsea played well and clean, they were eventually eclipsed by the power and the strength of character of Castle’s new talent, Moussa Sissoko.
