After this weekend’s events what have we learnt in the Premier League.
Firstly its Man City’s title to lose, 11 wins and 1 draw in the league at this point they look unstoppable. Man United have a problem in centre midfield. Rooney is filling a gap there and Fergie knows he has a problem. There’s a lack of creative talent in the centre of the park, missing out on Nasri & Sneijder is showing plus the loss of Scholes showed how good he really was. Young could move into the centre where he did play for Aston Villa which could be an option.
Tottenham look to be firing on all cylinders now, pace down both wings and they have the creative spark with Modric and Van Der Vaart. Now with Scott Parker doing the dirty work they look in good condition for top 4. Newcastle United’s first test against City was always going to be hard after an easy start to the season, but they do look solid at the back and have been exciting to watch. Chelsea look to have forgotten how to defend, lost their strength and lost that fear factor about them. This was everything Mourinho worked so hard making them do. AVB is struggling, coming from Portugal where it’s easy to be successful if you’re managing FC Porto he is now seeing how hard it is in England. Liverpool beating Chelsea shows they can compete against the tops sides and look much better without Carroll. They should get top 6 but not top 4.
Arsenal had a slow start to the campaign but are now roaring up the table, but if they get an injury to Robin Van Persie who will get the goals? QPR have made the best start out of the promoted clubs, their win at Stoke showed they have the bottle for the fight, but you wouldn’t expect anything less from a Warnock side. At the other end of the table Bolton look to be the contenders of the big side to go down. The other North West sides don’t seem to be fairing well either, as Wigan look doomed and Blackburn Rovers with Steve Kean struggling to win the fans over it will be a tough winter for them.
