    Wigan's defending has been woeful.

    Only saw the final 30 minutes. Wigan looked on top. I'm looking forward to seeing how Martinez does when he gets to manage a club with good players.

    City winning 1-0 at half time. Southampton looking like a Championship, City should have had more. Aguero stretchered off with a knee injury, didn't look good for him.

    Turned off at halftime as I was convinced City would batter them, 2-2 now. Bloody hell.

    A good game for the Saints. They made City run for its money.

    4-2 Chelsea in the end. Hazard has assisted 5 of Chelsea's 6 goals so far this season.....

    Winning penalties not really an assist but still, very impressive.

    Only Fantasy Football give assists for winning penalties.

    So, now some suggest winning a penalty is an assist. The flaw in this is that you could win the penalty and step up to score it, thereby assisting yourself. Also, if winning a penalty is an assist, then why not winning the free kick on the edge of the penalty area for a direct free kick goal?
    Here's the explanation: FEATURE - God assist me

    Don't really get the logic behind it but fair enough, I've considered penalties assists since I was a kid.

    To be fair there's no real definition of an assist. To me it makes sense to not award assists for winning penalties as there's a break in play, it's not a direct assist. Suppose winning a penalty could be classed as an indirect assist.

    For me, an assist is a direct pass to the goalscorer, no deflections. For example, the Rooney overhead kick against City, Nani's cross wasn't an assist as it was deflected by the defender. He wasn't trying to deflect it off the defender to get the ball to Rooney so it's not an assist. A lot of people consider an assist to be the last touch by a team mate before the goal.

    Never really considered what constitutes an assist before but comes across as difficult to define. I suppose without a definition off a governing body it's up in the air and down to each organisation to choose. Looking at it penalties maybe shouldn't be considered.

    Regardless of that Hazard has impressed me a lot in the first couple of games, shame we missed out. Chelsea are going to have to improve their defending a lot to be in with a chance to win the league though. All over the place today.

    Swansea doing really well. I may be speaking to soon, but if they keep this up, they may end at the top half of the table once the season is over. Really good performances so far.
