Arsene's Plan To Not Defend Set Pieces Fails, Lallana Might Have Cost Liverpool The Champions League, And Alli In Penalty-Winning Shock
Let's start in an unexpected way today. Just imagine how bad Sunderland against Burnley must have been to watch. 0-0 must have been the most guaranteed result of the day. It's nice to see Jermain Defoe back in the England squad though, if only as a reward for putting up with only being passed the ball about 25 times this season.
With Aguero banned for games against Leicester, Watford, Arsenal and Hull, City have lost their single biggest goal threat. The Argentine superstar has scored 10 times in 12 Premier League appearances this season and is responsible for 33% of the club's goals.
That De Bruyne was forced to leave the game early with a hamstring problem not long after that decisive moment and is now expected to be out of action a few weeks comes as a huge blow to City. And it's a blow that is bigger than briefly losing Aguero to suspension was earlier this month.
Aguero, to put it frankly, has been remarkable ever since he signed for Manchester City from Atletico Madrid for £38million in 2011. From his debut, where he scored twice, stealing the show in a 4-0 hammering of Newcastle, 'Kun' has been chief supplier of goals at the Etihad Stadium.
There has been a significant shortage of world class defenders making a living in the Premier League in recent years and quality full-backs are almost non-existent, hence Manchester United's absurdly high fee paid for Luke Shaw, a lad with slightly more talent than many other left-backs in the country.
Against a Crystal Palace side that has conceded in each of their four league games away from Selhurst Park this season, Berahino is presented with the perfect opportunity to continue his goalscoring run this weekend. With morale high, one would be foolish to bet against the youngster adding to his six league goals when the Eagles travel to the Midlands.

Samuel Eto'o, at his 42 years of age, sorry, 33 years of age, is probably not the striker Arsenal fans had in mind ahead
The Premier League is the greatest league in the world. We hear it all the time and considering the calibre of the players, money spent by the teams and the unpredictability of the matches, it is easy to agree. However, this reputation could well be damaged or even destroyed, following Greg Dyke's new target set regarding English players.
