Top 10 conclusions: Premier League weekend, 20-21 April
1. Before you demonstrate a complete lack of cultural awareness, consider that biting is actually a very common gesture to signify good defending in Uruguay.
2. He might have a taste for human flesh, but Luis Suarez made the race for Champions League football very interesting with his late, late equaliser against Chelsea.
3. The big winner of Luis Suarez’s biting incident was Roberto Mancini. The Uruguayan’s gnashers deflected much of the attention away from Manchester City’s collapse at Tottenham.
4. Spurs were Bale-d out again. A magical assist with the outside of his left foot and the inevitable goal – either side of Jermain Defoe’s great finish – secured a quick-fire comeback against City.
5. Harry Redknapp’s QPR were effectively condemned to relegation by Peter Crouch – a cruel twist of fate indeed. Talking of Crouch, his teeth must be back on form.
6. Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell is a work-shy slacker. A mere 12 minutes into his return from a three-match ban for a red card and he gets himself sent-off again.
7. Bennetts be netting like mofos at Norwich. Ryan and Elliott grabbed the goals that secured victory over Reading.
8. West Ham’s Kevin Nolan should be stripped of his legitimate 100th league goal for having the barefaced cheek to try to claim Matt Jarvis’ opener against Wigan for himself. He didn’t even touch it.
9. Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has kept his Wearside legend status intact with victory over Everton. It’s looking distinctly like the Italian will be true to his word and keep the Black Cats in the top-flight.
10. This weekend was a nice little analogy for the entire season: Manchester United did relatively little and sat back while the title was handed to them.
