We’re not ready to call it a title race in England. We’re just not. But now that it’s closer, how much pressure falls at the feet of Tottenham?
Monday’s humiliating defeat at Selhurst Park was just another chapter in a very disappointing season for Arsenal. How much worse could it get?
After another rousing weekend of English Premier League action (it was okay), we have some thoughts. First, on the Sunderland/Manchester United match from Sunday morning:
Look, the title race is probably over. I know what you’re thinking, Spurs fans. But it’s Chelsea’s to lose. We can talk about United underachieving instead.
With Antonio Conte on the touchline, Chelsea have been a step or two ahead of everyone this season. That’s unlikely to change with the FA Cup’s final four.
Zlatan threw a devastating elbow Saturday against Bournemouth. And, punishment might actually follow. Also, how much longer does Arsène Wenger have?
Little has changed since we last spoke of Chelsea running the EPL. Meanwhile Zlatan led United to another trophy, but it was awfully harsh on Southampton.
Last season was a fairy tale; this season it came undone. In the end, the answer was familiar: Claudio Ranieri, like many before him, became the scapegoat.
The 4th Round of the FA Cup produced just about the most magic it could have. The 5th Round, however, sets us up for an all-EPL quarterfinal. What gives?
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City is struggling, but a 0-4 defeat away to Everton is a new low. Plus Chelsea gets back on track, and plenty more.
17 matches into the Premier League season, and Chelsea cannot be stopped. Antonio Conte is channeling the talent so well, they may run away with the title.
Like the UCL, the Europa League group stage has come and gone. Were there any surprises? And, what intriguing matchups lie ahead?
Not many would go for a playoff-style format across Europe’s best leagues, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look at how it would (or wouldn’t) work.
Manchester United may be playing well, but it’s not translating. Elsewhere Chelsea keep winning, Spurs keep slipping, and Bob Bradley finally sees a win.
Liverpool’s back line may be shaky, but at the rate they’re scoring, that’s not going to matter much. And, will Tottenham ever score again?
It’s been all downhill for David Moyes since his time at Everton concluded. Sunderland is just another disastrous chapter in the manager’s career.
Arsenal, Manchester City, and Tottenham Hotspur all had a big opportunity this weekend. So, what does it mean now that they all whiffed on it?
