I Felt Sorry for Standard Liege

Yes, we played badly but credit to Liege, they battled in the first-half. They won the 50-50 balls, pressed us and gave our defence a torrid time. While Gallas and Vermaelen played well, the midfield was in tatters. Even Cesc couldn't string his passes together.I'm glad that we won, though. But I could help but feel sorry for Standard Liege who I feel deserves something from the match and were hard done by by the second goal we scored. Having said that, we do need this luck once in a while as we normally have plenty of such decisions against us.We have Wigan on Saturday and I hope Almunia will be fit even though he's been rubbish this season. I can't bear to see Mannone in goal again as he almost gave me a couple of heart attacks. The goals we conceded weren't his fault, really. But I help but think Wigan may make use of his inexperience.
