Today In The Premiership...

Manchester United 3-1 Manchester City. Cross-town rivalries are fun, but... well, you'd prefer they were a little more competitive. Manchester City hasn't won at Old Trafford in 32 years, and goals from Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Louis Saha kept them from doing it today. City actually gave it more of a go than you might've expected, but they're still City, and United is still United, and that's just the way it is.

Chelsea vs. Arsenal. This one's tomorrow (11 a.m. on Fox Soccer, so you can watch it before men's football begins at 1 p.m.), and Chelsea's going to need a victory to stay within striking distance of United. They're currently 9 points back, and they really can't have anything other than a win. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has already made a plea to the 3,100 Arsenal fans making the trip to Stamford Bridge to leave alone Ashley Cole, who left Arsenal for Chelsea in the offseason. "I would not like any stupid aggression but a feast of football like it can be in England." Personally, I'd prefer stupid aggression.

Tottenham 5-1 Charlton. Nothing says, "Hey, relegate us" quite like a 5-1 thrashing where your only goal was an own goal. Dimatar Berbatov scored twice for Tottenham, leaving Charlton at next-to-last place in the standings.
