Today In The Premiership...

Aston Villa 1-0 Everton. Not a great day for Everton... midfielder Tim Cahill was taken out on a stretcher, and they lost at home to Aston Villa despite dominating the play for long stretches of time. The extent of Cahill's injury isn't known just yet, but since a stretcher was required, the injury could be as bad as a bruise, perhaps even a scratch. Alright, I'm sorry, that wasn't very nice. It looked like the guy's knee actually bent the wrong way a little bit. Best of luck to him.

Chelsea 4-0 Watford. If you had to guess who would score more today, Didier Droga against Watford, or Northwestern against Ohio State, who would you go with? Drogba set the bar pretty high with a hat trick against Watford ... I'm calling a push. The three goals prompted Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to call Drogba the best striker in the world.

Manchester United 1-0 Blackburn. After a mid-week Carling Cup loss to a team called the "Shrimpers," Manchester United rebounded for a 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers. Maybe bringing in Freddy Adu wouldn't be such a bad idea after all. Blackburn, meanwhile, has plans for an addition of their own, with their sights set on bringing former Manchester United star David Beckham back to the Premiership.
