Switched Man City off an went for a nice walk
On Saturday West Ham won at Spurs.
The goal by Michael Antonio was a sensational finish after a fabulous pass from Arnautovic on the right touchline. Antonio controlled ball on his chest and blasted his shot high inside the near post
Spurs lost at home to West Ham because they were thinking about Ajax, their biggest match for years.
Eriksen, a Dane, and Vertonghen & Alderweireld, two Belgians, all played for Ajax.
Dele Alli, Son and Lucas Moura played up top in a 4-3-3 that stuttered.
I’m a Dele fan and always watch him closely.
Being a dynamic footballer, he often looks for risky assist passes rather than safe possession passes. That didn’t work against the Hammers.
Leicester have enjoyed a new manager bounce since Brendan Rodgers arrived and they might even overtake Wolves, who are seventh now.
On-loan Belgian Youri Tielemans headed home a Maddison cross in 59 and Arsenal were annihilated after that, as they had been in a goalless first half.
Keeper Kasper Schlemiel speared a 70-yard assist for Jamie Vardy to make it 2-0 and then Vardy converted Ricardo’s cross to make it 3-0.
That goal produced a historic stat.
Not since 1967 has the mighty Arsenal conceded three goals in three consecutive league matches.
I’ll be amazed if Arsenal finish above Leicester next season.
Leicester have a very good owner, as you know. A guy who cares.
Arsenal have Silent $tan, a billionaire who has a calculator where his heart should be.
Five seconds after kick-off in the Manchester United –Chelsea game I backed BTS.
Then, in the second half, I fancied Chelsea to score again and had a bet on that, But it finished 1-1.
When VAR comes in next season, Nemanja Matic will not get away with so many forearm smashes and elbows.
Sadio Mane was electrifying in Friday’s game against Huddersfield. Mane scored with two headers and hit the post with a third.
Virgil van Dijk is a colossus and the leader Liverpool needed.
The Dutchman has won the PFA Player of the Year and no footballer has deserved it more.
