Barkley Responds To The Sun On The Pitch, Chelsea Rubbish Without Alonso, And Liverpool Manage To Not Concede A Set-Piece!
Well, well, well. Has that made things interesting? I mean, considering Jose is putting his eggs pretty much in the basket labelled Europa League, United's win at Old Trafford has to go down as a bit of a shock...
Sunderland Still Need To Win All Their Games To Stay Up As Conte Relishes And Laughs At Tottenham's Pursuit
Each week makes it look more likely that the top six will end in their current shape meaning doom and gloom for Arsene. At the bottom, it feels like Swansea and Hull City will play their own version of pass the parcel with that remaining relegation spot. It is too close to call, as ever.
Tottenham Should Aim For 'The Mentality Not To Throw Away Second Place This Time' As Chelsea Get Back On The Horse
Well, if the reward for international football is a bumper week of Premier League football then I apologise to international football for all the rude things I have called it recently. What a week of action we've had, with some twists and turns, some slap and tickle, and some expert displays of boosting footballers' confidence in public!
Chelsea Leave The Door Slightly Ajar, Arsenal Finally Find A Backbone And United Thrill Everyone At Old Trafford Once More
Whoa, whoa, whoa Chelsea. What's that all about, hey? We've already wrapped up this Premier League title thank you very much
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.
Lincoln Embarrassed By Losing To Arsenal, Boro Need A New Plan And Kate Is Un-Abel To Finish The Match
It was a funny old weekend of football. Premier League matches alongside some juicy FA Cup Quarter Finals always dilute the attention and I am not sure we are any the wiser as a result. Mind you, it would take more than a game of football to make me wise, that is for sure.
Oh, so Dimitri was the problem after all was he? Who would have thought it, that with West Ham's star man refusing to play
Football is back! It's finally back! As such, its time to dive into some predictions that will be completely forgotten after the first set of results prove them to be completely meaningless. Unless they are somehow accurate at the end of the season, in which case I will be retiring from football journalism to become a full time Paul the Octopus impersonator. I'm pretty sure there's more money in that anyway.
West Ham have been real lucky this summer, taking advantage of so many different unknown factors to sign players of quality like Feghouli and Tore. Ever since Gary Neville left Valencia after a scintillating few months, Feghouli has been unable to forget his time there...
When he arrived on these shores and made an impressive debut in West Ham's opening day 2-0 victory at Arsenal, it would have been entirely acceptable for any self-effacing football fan to conclude that he was 22 or 23, given his voracious appetite for the game.
