Everton Overpower Manchester United and Real-Ronaldo Pummels Villareal

This weekend must be described as liberating for me, not only is an american finally proving his worth abroad, Landycakes at Everton, but we are finally seeing some fantastic football by Real Madrid, guided by its galacticos.

Real Madrid - Villareal

We start at the Santiago Bernabeu, Manuel Pellegrini was under a lot of pressure after the Lyon loss, and it seemed that Villareal was finally rising up the tables in La Liga, but a spectacular free kick by Ronaldo in the 18th minute seemed to put the game to bed, and only 2 minutes later Kaka' put a penalty away. Then Marcos Senna scored a fantastic free kick to keep Villareal in the match, but Higuain promptly puts away a goal after halftime. Nilmar scores for Villareal, but the game was definitely over after Higuain scored another in the 71st minute, and Kaka' and Xabi Alonso followed soon after making the final score, 6-2.

In Spain, Barcelona had no trouble facing Racing Santander who recently had their young starlet, Sergio Canales, bought by Real Madrid, Barca scored four to keep themselves five points ahead Real Madrid. Mallorca's fantastic run ends against Sevilla, a 3-1 victory, but the talking points were the two red cards to Sevilla's Alvaro Negredo and Zokora, and Mallorca's Ramis. David Villa scores two to make sure Valencia get past Getafe 2-1, and Almeria beat a disappointing Atletico Madrid.

In England, Everton beat Manchester United, 3-1, the red devils were overpowered by Everton and its teamwork, Rooney was disappointing and it seems that Chelsea could run away with the title after winning against Wolves 2-0. Arsenal rise up to beat Sunderland 2-0, and Aston Villa have a fantastic match against Burnley with the final score being 5-2 for Villa. Manchester City and Liverpool had a terrivle match between them, the final score 0-0, the two teams were scared of giving up anything, taking out any excitement from the match. Tottenham continue their romp to fourth place after beating Wigan 3-0 thanks to two goals by the controversial Pauvlychenko, who although is disliked by Redknapp, the Russian can only score goals.

In Italy, Genoa find their form against an ever-sinking Udinese who has re-signed Marino as it's coach, Genoa beat Udinese 3-0 thanks to two goals by Acquafresca and one by Palacio. Inter Milan lose more points against Sampdoria after Cordoba and Samuel were sent off, leaving the nerazzurri in nine men, the two teams drew 0-0. All the teams chasing Inter were able to nab wins, Roma beat Catania 1-0, Juventus beat Bologna 2-1, and AC Milan beat Bari 2-0 after a fantastic bicycle kick by Borriello.
