As another week rolls by in the ever unpredictable Premier League, we look at the five things we learnt from this week’s action.
Costa is a nuisance… And Chelsea fan’s love it!
Whether Arsene Wenger likes it or not, Diego Costa got the better of his Arsenal side once again as the Blues ran out 1-0 winner’s in the Gunners own back yard.
The Spanish International has proved to be a thorn in Arsenal’s backside, and Wenger can have no complaints with the red card after Per Mertesacker at least impeded Diego’s progression into the box.
Until the Frenchman stop’s blaming other’s for his own teams inefficiencies, Arsenal will struggle to win the Premier League.
Man U stoop to new low!
Louis van Gaal has not lived up to expectations after his side were beaten 1-0 by Southampton at Old Trafford.
United are fifth in the Premier League table, five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and 10 off leaders Leicester.
Having spent and spent and spent over the past 4 transfer window’s, the club still looks as though the wound’s of losing Sir Alex Ferguson are still deep.
LVG can count his lucky star’s he is still at the helm, and one wouldn’t bet against him leaving before the season closes.
Klopp should have gone to Specsavers!
Adam Lallana’s injury-time strike saw Liverpool edge a nine-goal thriller at Norwich in one of the most dramatic Premier League games of the season.
The Reds are four points worse off than at this stage last season so one could hardly argue that the team has improved since Brendon Rogers was removed from his post.
However, Jurgen Klopp will be pleased to have sealed the three points… Even if he does need a new pair of glasses after Liverpool followed their celebratory tradition of acting as though they had won the league and sent the managers spectacles flying.
Spurs are in the title race!
An incredible 25-yard volley from Dele Alli helped Tottenham come from a goal behind to defeat Crystal Palace.
Spur’s have been in fine form this season and are real dark horses to claim the Premier League title.
Tottenham have never finished in the top three of the Premier League, and this was a huge test of their character – and they passed it with flying colours.
This well-deserved victory keeps them only five points behind surprise leaders Leicester.
You plonker Nicolas Otamendi!
Manchester City lost ground on Premier League leaders Leicester City as Sergio Aguero scored twice to rescue a draw at West Ham.
The result means Manchester City are second, three points behind Leicester, while West Ham are sixth.
The sky blues will be ruining the mistake of Nicolas Otamendi who’s hesitant defending allowed Valencia through on goal.
One would imagine that Otamendi will be benched after that performance.
