A very strange Premier League top four race so far

A good number of folks expected a change in position for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th teams in the Premier League going by the proceedings of last weekend. However, this was not the case as Manchester United were held to a 2-all draw by Southampton at Old Trafford on Monday night. Therefore, it's safe to say that the third to fifth teams in the Premier League are flattering to deceive, having failed to consolidate on their positions thus far in the Premier League. Chelsea strangely retained the third spot even after a shambolic 3 nil loss away to Sheffield United. This was also the case for Leicester City who retained the fourth spot after losing 4:1 away to Bournemouth.

The Premier League’s unlikeliest hat-trick club and scorer

The Premier League's first hat-trick in the POST-COVID era came from the unlikeliest of clubs and the unlikeliest of players on Wednesday night. A good number of folks had their money on Riyad Mahrez or Phil Foden as Manchester City thumped Burnley 5 nil at the Etihad on Monday. However, this was not the case. It came from their neighbors Manchester United at Old Trafford and by Anthony Martial on Wednesday night in the Red Devils' 3 nil win against Sheffield United as they mounted more pressure on those above them in the race for the top 4 places. It can be recalled that no Man United player had scored a hat-trick for the club in the Premier League since the retirement of Alex Ferguson. That's a major reason why no one saw it coming. It was Man United's first hat-trick in the Pre...

We have an eventful La Liga title race in our hands

The Spanish La Liga has been eventful thus far in the ongoing 2019/20 season and has produced a competitive title race where the contenders are at the necks of each other for the trophy. This hasn't been the case for a while now and is a welcome development. Although the title race is unsurprisingly between the two top dogs in Spanish club football, namely Real Madrid and Barcelona, the race is getting fiercer, even after the game's return from lockdown. The two sides are showing stuff of champions and are grinding out the needed results even when their performances have not been top-notch. Quique Setien's Barcelona currently lead La Liga with 3 points after grinding out a 1 nil result against Athletic Bilbao at the Nou Camp on Tuesday. However, Real Madrid have a game in hand aga...

The Premier League returned in full force over the weekend and has just one remaining fixture from the matchday. The game will see Manchester City welcome Burnley to the Etihad on Monday, find where to watch the game here. The weekend fixtures saw the fight for the top 4 places heighten as Frank Lampard's Chelsea and Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves did themselves a lot of good with the victories they secured. Chelsea came from behind to beat Aston Villa 2:1 at Villa Park to open up a 5 point lead against Manchester United and close in on third place Leicester who drew 1 all with a relegation-threatened Watford away from home. The Foxes now lead the Blues with just 3 points. Wolves beat West Ham 2 nil away from home as the Hammers plunged deeper into relegation waters. GET THE LATE...

Premier League returns with VAR controversy and Arsenal still Arsenal

The 2019/20 Premier League returned on Wednesday night and, as expected, the most popular football league in the world produced excitement and controversies, no thanks to the Video Assistant Refereeing system that has divided opinions in the league thus far. Two outstanding games that bore consequential value for all teams involved took place on the night. Relegation-threatened and newly-promoted Aston Villa faced a high-flying newly-promoted Sheffield United at Villa Park. Aston Villa needed all three points in the game to boost their chances of survival this season, as they currently sit 19th in the Premier League with 26 points, 1 point away from safety. Sheffield United, on the other hand, have pushed way above their weight this season, and are in a good position for a place i...
