The weekend round of games have been concluded, talking points emerged and we seek to look at three hot topics from the weekend round of games in the English Premier League.
Is Leicester City on a downward spiral?
Before their improbable title win of 2016, Leicester City were the bookies’ favorites for the drop every season, they were so poor they were the least rated but miracles do happen, they went on to win the premier league and the rest is history but have they lived up to the heights ever since?
Leicester had the chance to make the champions league in the past two seasons but on both occasions, they bottled it at the death to Manchester United and Tottenham respectively, they have crashed out of Europe and lost to Everton over the weekend, are they going back to the trenches?
City and Liverpool would trade places?
Pep Guardiola took a big swipe at Liverpool after his team demolished Newcastle on Sunday to go three clear after the Kops dropped two valuable points at home to Tottenham, while that doesn’t completely end Liverpool’s title dreams, it would be seen how they would usurp an angry City.
Following City’s UCL elimination, is it safe to wonder if Liverpool would rather be City and be the favorites for the league title and City in Liverpool’s place to stand a chance of winning the UCL? Is this a debatable conversation?
United must be humble for Ten Haag to succeed.
Manchester United were beaten black and blue by Brighton over the weekend, leaving fans wondering how it got this bad for the team but the hopes on Erik Ten Hag can easily turn to despair if the club doesn’t allow him to flourish.
How many of the players that were battered by the Seagulls last Saturday would be seen again next season? That is hard to tell but Ten Hag must be allowed to run his own show and deliver his own players, instant success should never be the priority, United must be humble.
