There were more thrills and spills in the Premier League today, with unlikely leaders Leicester City opening up a five point gap, as the North London derby ended all square. At the other end, another disappointing result for Aston Villa pus them deeper into the mire.
Here are five things learned from Saturday’s Premier League action:
Christian Fuchs deserves as much credit as anyone for Leicester’s success
The likes of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater have been getting most of the plaudits for the remarkable season the Foxes are enjoying. But while they take the headlines, Fuchs has been quietly and efficiently going about his business. Ever dependable, and gained the assist for Mahrez’s game winning strike at Watford.
2. Manchester City are the bullies of the Premier League
Sunderland, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, and Aston Villa. All teams that have been put to the sword by Manchester City this season at the Etihad. Why on earth can City not do so well against sides higher up the table. Do they have the bottle to do so?
3. Arsenal do have some fight in them
After the loss to Swansea City in midweek, it would have been easy to write Arsenal off against their North London arch rivals Tottenham. But the Gunners were able to show some steel and gain a useful point. It doesn’t hurt to dent Spurs’ title hopes either……..
4. Newcastle have a world of problems
It is not a good time to be a fan of the Toon. Steve McClaren might not last the season, but it might prove to be a blessing if he doesn’t. The club badly need reinvigorating. The players released a statement showing they were behind their boss, then were outclassed once again, this time by Bournemouth.
5. It’s looking like two from three going down with Aston Villa
It is hard to see anyway back from the almost inevitable relegation Aston Villa will suffer, barring a miracle of almost biblical proportions. It seems that it will be between Newcastle, Sunderland and Norwich who will also make the dreaded drop, an even more dreaded one with the new TV deal looming. These sides have to show that they are up for the survival fight.
