LONDON -- Three thoughts on Arsenal's 0-0 draw with Liverpool in the Premier League.

1. A most unlikely result

Given the unconvincing defences, dangerous attackers, two attack-minded managers and a slippery pitch after hours of heavy rain, the one result you didn't expect was 0-0.

It wasn't one of those goalless draws in which nothing happened, when 0-0 seemed inevitable from an early stage; rather, it was one of those 0-0s when everything happened except a goal. In a sport that thrives on tension...

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts on Manchester City's 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park:

1. Man City pass their toughest test

Manchester City have maintained their 100 percent record. They have still triumphed in each of their league games and have yet to concede. Everton presented the stiffest test of both City's winning habit and their defence, but Manuel Pellegrini recorded his second significant victory at Goodison Park.
