Five Premier League villains of the weekend

Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle and Tottenham stars feature.

After the second round of Premier League matches these five stood out as the villains of the weekend.

Jose Mourinho & David Moyes

This is a combined effort by these two managers to force their way on to the villains list this week. Both were responsible for serving up an extremely dull affair between Manchester United and Chelsea last night. We can all accept a 0-0 score line every now and then but the way this game panned out was a particularly boring match, one that the entire media had labeled in the build up the game of the season so far. It wasn’t to be, you’ll be hard pushed to find a less entertaining game this year.

Joe Hart

England’s number one has had his fair share of criticism over the past couple of months after mistakes at the back end of last season and making an error that led to Scotland scoring at Wembley two weeks ago. He didn’t cover himself in glory this weekend as his Manchester City side suffered a shock defeat to Cardiff City, for the home side’s second goal he got involved in a tangle with someone in the penalty when he should have been concentrating on the incoming corner. His hesitation and poor decision making allowed Campbell to head home. A poor week all round for Hart.

Yohan Cabaye

he Reportedly refused to play for Newcastle against West Ham after he has set his sights on a move to Arsenal. Going on strike is not a new thing for players to do when they want to move clubs but deserting your team when they are in need of some help, Newcastle are struggling without one of their best players. He’ll probably get his move now he has lost the respect of the fans.

Andros Townsend

He has looked bright for Tottenham since coming back from his loan at QPR but his dive against Swansea to win his side a penalty, that won them the game, cannot be overlooked. You may say that diving is just part of the game but cheating his opponents out of a hard earned point is not something to be proud of. There is an argument here too for putting the referee in the villains of the week for falling for the dive and awarding the penalty.
