Bounced from last week's defeat in the hands of Geylang International on the same venue, Tanjong Pagar United scored the biggest upset since their returning to the top-flight by beating defending AIA Singapore Premier League champions Albirex Niigata (Singapore) 2-1 last evening (6/8) at the Jurong East Stadium.

Against the run of play, former White Swans star Reo Nishiguchi put the Jaguars ahead in the 33rd minute before it was cancelled out by Shuya Yamashita's header in the 81st minute.

But Luiz Junior's audacious lob in the 84th minute confirmed their co-tenant's first defeat of the year.

Right after last night's (13/8) AIA Singapore Premier League fixture that saw Albirex Niigata (Singapore) crushed Hougang United 4-1 at Jurong East Stadium, I received a text from a friend which read.

"𝘼𝙡𝙗𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙭 𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙮 𝙩𝙤𝙤 𝙜𝙤𝙤𝙙. 𝙃𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙣𝙤 𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙜𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙙 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙨𝙩, 𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜. 𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙙𝙞𝙙 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙧𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙩𝙨 𝙤𝙣 𝙜𝙤𝙖𝙡."

Absolutely, the Cheetahs were poor and their credibility as a title contender is seriously in doubt since the resume of their campaign.

Lion City Sailors thrown whatever they had in the game but just could not shackle the resistance put by Hougang United in last night's (27/8) AIA Singapore Premier League match played at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

Anders Aplin stunned the home crowds when his header opened the account in the 51st minute before Stipe Plazibat levelled the scores from close range in the 75th minute.
