FREE KICK - It was the story that sports journalists around the world sank their teeth into. Luis Suarez treated Branislav Ivanovic's elbow as if it were a well-done steak. Immediately following the incident Suarez apologized. The outrage decreased to a murmur and the story seemingly floated out to sea. Days later however Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre and manager Brendan Rogers created a mutiny. In their estimation the 10-game penalty was cruel and unusual punishment. I can't understand their protest. This wasn't like trying to get a good night kiss at the end of a first date; it was more like a pinch or grab of a body part.

SWANSEA CITY-MANCHESTER CITY.....Swansea wasn't even expected to have a puncher's chance against the premiership leaders and a missed PK in the 7th minute wouldn't brighten their spirits. City made one mistake but it would prove to be costly. Stefan Savic's goof at midfield would soon become a Luke Moore goal. Mike Tyson, meet Buster Douglas. Swansea-1 Manchester City-0.
MANCHESTER UNITED-WEST BROMWICH ALBION.....WBA came in winners of three in a row but they would hardly lay a glove on the red devils....
