A week ago Tottenham were the pride of London just before the derby you heard no Arsenal player would get in that team blah, blah , blah, fast forward 1 week ,Spurs have dropped 4 points Arsenal have gained 6 leapfrogging them into 4th place. I am not drawing conclusions from that either it’s still early days and there are still 25 games i.e. 75 points to play for.  Also I have told myself the next time Arsenal play Burnley I will watch from the 88th minute we all know the script now.

Another week another win for City even if they had to come back from behind to beat a dogged Huddersfield.  I don’t get when people say it’s cruel when a team that played just not to get beat all game without a shot on target concedes in the last minute to lose the game.  The objective of the game when it was created was to get the ball between those two sticks you call a goalpost right?.. City so far are answering all the questions placed before them, if the core of the team stays healthy they will take some stopping.

His opposite number in the red half of Manchester is doing his best to keep up with City. A last minute win against Brighton keeps the gap at 8 points but the next three games for United don’t look easy. It’s Watford way, Arsenal Away then City at home. If they don’t start playing instead of parking a bus to victory I see them dropping at least 4 points from those three fixtures.  We all know he is going to set up not to get beat at Arsenal and against City but will he take the initiative against Silva’s Watford ?At least Pogba is back right…

Everton slipping down the slippery slope very fast and I don’t get how a caretaker who is obviously way worse than the manager sacked seems to be getting more time to drag them down further. Maybe it’s ok to lose with the caretaker guy, that’s the way I am explaining the situation at Everton.  Next week they face off against another caretaker at West Ham in Moyes, I will look for the result of that match not sure it’s worth watching.

Silva continues to impress at Watford, not just that he is winning but in the manner in which he is winning. I remember when Paul Merson complained about his appointment at Hull, because the bloke  knew nothing about English football as if the likes of Pulis, Moyes, Allardyce who know the league better could conjure the kind of football Silva makes his team play at Watford.

That’s that for this week and football is back tomorrow oh before I forget Liverpool still can’t hold on to a lead and it was also good to see Adam Lallana back on the field I like the guy.
