Just when I thought that Arsenal were the draw soup “Supremos” lo and behold na bin cousin den. I have to keep reminding myself and everyone that everything is not what it seems. Well that result isn’t right, in fact all those draw soup results aren’t right. Err well so is life, even Donald Trump’s result isn’t right but we get on with it. I watched Herrera moan during the post-match interviews that he doesn’t know what to do because their performance deserves more than just a point. I tell you what, he is right you know, but there is the unwanted manager factor in JM.
Just when Liverpool fans thought that the match against Sunderland was going to be another stalemate, up steps Klopp on the fans to stop moaning and rally the team. Boy, and they responded as if doomsday was approaching. Did it work? Absolutely! Fast forward to Old Trafford. The moans and groans from the stands would suggest that over 54,000 fans were on a gallows. And when you turn to the dugout for inspiration there was no sight of the manager. He had been sent to the stands (well in the tunnel) for free kicking water bottles on the touch line as a result of a booking against Pogba for taking diving lessons from Ashley Young. This has been United’s season to date. There is always something brewing as I said in previous blogs. JM needs to be O.T Genasis and “Cut It”. A league they are expected to win based on the money spent is slowing ebbing away.
It is now 11 points from Chelsea at the top who inflicted a first defeat in the league on Spurs. Koindu Invincibles as Festus Sowah put it...put into perspective, they were “virginated” under the Bridge. The race is well and truly on after the top changed positions 3 times on Saturday with City, Liverpool and Chelsea all bagging 3 points.A very impressive showing from Bournemouth threatened the Emirates for long periods but Arsenal’s quality showed in the end and the November hoodoo was lifted.
The next set of PL fixtures will be influenced by the mid-week EFL Cup action. Whilst Liverpool entertains Leeds at Anfield, ManU have a re-match date with West Ham at Old Trafford. Arsenal and Southampton will battle it out at the Emirates. The team sheets will be key, especially for Liverpool who 4 out of the Fab 5 are now on the nursing bed. That makes Friday’s press conference entertaining too; points are going to be dropped at the top as Chelsea make their way to the Ethiad to meet City during lunch time, whilst a small tea time London derby awaits Arsenal at West Ham. Whatever the outcome from the early kick off, Liverpool who travel to Bournemouth on Sunday will be under immense pressure to either regain top spot or consolidate second spot. Super weekend approaching but in the meantime the aftermath of the mister consistent will be in the spot light – again: one win in September, one in October and one in November – you have to be consistent to win the league and so it is to stay 6th....
