Another premier league weekend is here and as it stands Leicester are closer to their first title with their win last weekend, they can afford to lose two games in the run in and still win the league . Got it wrong last week with my predictions or wish as some of you have you called my predictions. I got two out of three regarding my predictions With an Arsenal Win, Spurs dropping two points at Liverpool although three would have been better and Leicester securing all three points at home to Southampton though I predicted a draw. Watching the Leicester game I must say the collective determination and hardwork of the team is immense I could hardly remember their goalkeeper having to make a save, all the players in front of him worked extremely hard on a day they didn’t play that well. I still don’t know how Ngolo Kante does it but he seems to be everywhere on the pitch, for his small frame versus his effectiveness in his role he totally dispels the myth of having to be of an imposing size to be effective as a defensive midfielder.
This weekend’s games brings up a tough away game at West Ham for Arsenal, Spurs are at home to Manchester united and Leicester are away to Sunderland. West Ham at home to Arsenal is a tough one and that new team balance that Coquelin and Elneny provide will be tested, my advice do not bring down any West Ham player near the 18 yard box, any free kick conceded in that area with Payet in the team is as good as a penalty! If the team is disciplined and focused I see an Arsenal win with West Ham having an FA cup replay 2 days after the weekend game. Spurs at home to Manchester will be fun to watch fingers crossed LVG and his boys get the job done. Leicester at Sunderland will likely be a draw, Ranieri and his boys just don’t know how to lose at the moment and totally deserve to be where they are.
Moving away from tomorrow’s game I saw the Liverpool Dortmund game last night and Klopp is slowly transforming that team, impressive display in Germany. When Klopp gets his hands on his own players in the summer transfer window they are going to be a force in the league next season.
So here’s to an Arsenal win tomorrow and everybody else dropping points that means the remaining games ending in draws, that would be something. Anyways off to sort my fantasy league at least that is giving me joy as I am top in all the leagues I am involved in but one. Any ideas on who to buy this weekend guys?
I am still hopeful of a Leicester wobble although that fades more and more with a every point they get on the board!
