Liverpool sacked Brendan Rodgers following their 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday. The Mersyside derby was a very important match for Rogers and had he won that game he would have kept his job a bit longer. The draw against Everton means that Rogers and Liverpool had only managed to win 1 of their last 9 games.

Jesus said in a parable "The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner stone" in Psalms 118 verse 22. This was clearly demonstrated by Arsene Wenger last weekend, after signing Peter Chec over the summer he was instrumental in breaking the 13 winless drought against Chec's old boss Jose Mourinho. A superb strike from Ox-laid Chamberlain was enough to allow Arsene Wenger for the first time ever, to claim victory over Jose Mourinho after amazingly trying for 14 times! Never say never!

The Barclays Premier League takes centre stage this weekend with Chelsea looking to extend their lead at the top and get themselves out of sight. Jose Mourinho seems to be happy with the situation at the moment and even insisted that he wants to remain at Chelsea for as long as possible. Manuel Pellegrini on the other hand hinted at a Wilfried Bony debut against Newcastle and hopes his Man City team will make up some ground in the title race.

Arsenal May not be in the top four currently in the English Premier League, but they are certainly clawing their way back to the top. Since the exit of players like Patrick Viera, Theiry Henry, Robert Pirez, Tony Adams and David Seaman, Arsenal has not managed to look the same. Last season was the closest they got to lifting the coveted title again by introducing Mezut Ozil, Santi Carzola, and Lucas Poldolski.
