AC Milan waited little time to get a healthy Ronaldinho into the starting eleven, and their investment in the veteran Brazilian playmaker paid quick dividends in the form of a 37th minute goal in the Milan derby. That was all they'd need to hold off a downright mopey Jose Mourinho. • The Citizens takeover of the EPL might take a while. Manchester City's new ownership added some fancy new pieces at the close of the transfer window, but they have a lot of work to do before moving up in the world. The Citizens suffered their second defeat of the weak to lesser opposition, this time falling to Wigan in by a score of 2-1. Antonio Valencia opened the scoring at JBB Stadium with a long-range missile, and was joined on his side of the score sheet when Amir Zaki converted a penalty in the 34nd minute. • That must have felt good. Portsmouth was in need of a victory after being drubbed by a combined 10-0 in their past to matches. Fortunately they had a date with Tottenham this morning. Pompey secured a 2-0 victory over the embattled Spurs with goals from Defoe (penalty) and Crouch (rarity).
