ARSENAL v ASTON VILLA – Vela's valid Villa verdict

Another week, another crisis at
the Emirates as, according to a number of respected pundits, a fourth defeat of
the season already appears to have signalled an end to Arsenal's title hopes.
That remains to be seen but there seems to be total agreement that Aston Villa
were well worth their first win on Gunners territory since November 1993. There
was rather more disagreement about Villa's second goal as Arsenal's star
youngster Carlos Vela was fouled immediately before the visitors broke to seal
their win with Gabby Agbonlahor's clinical strike.

The Right Result is a 1-0
win to Aston Villa.

BLACKBURN ROVERS v SUNDERLAND – Not so, Keane

Last week's speculated fall-out
between Sunderland's Djibril Cisse and his manager Roy Keane appeared to come
to a happy ending when they almost literally kissed and made-up after the
bustling striker scored the Black Cats' winner at Blackburn Rovers. However,
with the help of very slow motion replays and in line with the strict edicts of
the law, Cisse converted with the advantage of being offside as at least his
head was nearer to the opponent's goal line than the second last opponent.
Similarly, such is the close contest in the Premier League this season that the
denial of two more precious points – in addition to the point deducted against
Arsenal last month – has seen Sunderland drop into the Right Result's
relegation zone.

The Right Result is a 1-1
draw.
