Eren's skills in fighting are really starting to show now that he's calming down and taking control B¬). He was so cool this chapter. I like how it was Annie that taught him those fight moves lol. Yeah, I like the interaction between Eren and Annie. They seem nice together, despite the whole she being a titan thing.
I bet the fight between Annie and Mikasa has been interrupted.

Imo Annie was simply teaching him cuz Eren, in her mind, will be an ALLY. Infact the only purpose of the three titan guys is to kidnap him after his refuse but Eren could accept their proposal and come with them. Reiner trust him too with that outing declaration before all the things mess up (I know he was a bit confused and frankly tired to act like a "normal human being" being bited by low class titan and so on).
About Mikasa: she was simply doing the stuff she is doing anytime. Protect Eren. Throwing Reiner to Annie to force her to let him from the lock.
This is my opinion.
And about the winner: I bet for Mikasa.
Annie probably taught Eren because he complimented(or liked) her technique. After all, it's Annie's father's technique not hers completely. She still feels attachment towards her father(as seen in her memories) and since Eren took a liking to those techniques, Annie allowed Eren to learn it. At best, Reiner and Annie taught Eren how to fight because they probably felt pity on him because he keeps saying "I'll kill those titans" line both knowing, at their trainee days, Eren doesn't stand a hell of chance to titans. They probably already felt that Eren was going to die early, until that "miracle" happened(Eren being a titan).
On Mikasa: Agree. It's kinda the same when Levi/Rivaille was hurting Eren. Mikasa really had the strong urge to act but she couldn't simply because of Armin stopping her, laws and etc. Though I do think it's still possible Mikasa felt a very slight jealousy at best.<--But that's probably my shipper view XD.
Also agree on the winner. Mikasa rules on height advantage, strength and probably technique. While Annie specializes more on technique but lacks in height and strength, if we believe what she's saying about being weak.
Also Reiner stated after almost dying he was just tired of playing the soldier, that is why he told Eren everything.
Don't think the winner is important, just the technique and i wouldn't be surprised if the author never show what happened in that fight(or a instructor stopped them).

Eren! You're doing it wrong!
Reiner already exposed his weakness!
It would be really weird if Eren tried that...hehehe
Eren knows Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, showing armbars, guilhotines.... The best (most effective) martial art!
Too bad Eren wasn't there when Reiner said such weakness. XDDDD
More a MMA or UFC fan cause he drew Mikasa in a UFC outfit.
Annie seems to mix various as her stance is from Muay Thai.
All together, this fight was like one in the cage in my eyes with the wall being like the cage wall.

And the Colossal Titan? The typical feud interference? LOL!!! No that's Wrestling execuse me =P
I do wonder where this is all going to lead though, definitely some messed up stuff going on if there has been quite the reveal that there are quite a number of human titans or better yet titans were always humans.
As for the chapter, definitely do wonder what's going to happen, looks like a desperation move to defeat Eren though I wonder what they will get out of such an attack. It would be surprising if they plan on killing him but it also comes down to someone has to be controlling these two people since they can't possibly be acting like this on their own mission. Do wonder how many chapters it will be before some answers are revealed maybe next chapter or at least the one after that lol.
^ You guys sure are funny XDDD. I doubt Annie even has a crush on Eren(even though I ship them...). Maybe a little. But hell no attraction as her motive for attacking and trying to capture him.
I'm sure her motives were along the lines of being a "warrior fulfilling their duty to the bitter end" and a "promise to come back home." Just like what Reiner had tried to say. Remember that before Annie transformed into a titan, she said that she was a "failure as a warrior,"<--according to scanlations ch.31 pg 40. It's similar to what Reiner was implying on chapter 42. Then if she really was attracted to Eren, why the heck that she last remembered, before being crystallized, was a memory of her father telling her to hate humanity and promise to come back? Her motives are just like Reiner's in my opinion. Warrior and Home. She's just like a female Reiner, with a loner personality.
I'm hazarding a guess that she was in the same position as Reiner and Bertolt is right now. In order to get back home, they could destroy humanity or capture Eren, who seemed like the three's fastest ticket to home.
