Five things we learnt this weekend

What is actually going on with the Premier League big guns and the spate of unpredictable results and why is there so much excitement? Here’s five what we learnt from the weekend:

1. Diego Costa has no interest in making friends. The Spain striker is the type of player who gets onto the pitch already angry that there are those instructed to stop him. So he decides to make life really hard for them. In any case he should have seen red on Saturday at home to Arsenal for his altercation with Laurent Koscielny.

2. Mike Dean is actually one of the better referees in the Premier League however, he failed woefully to manage the situation involving Gabriel and Diego Costa. With how he had handled the match up until that time he should have pulled the two players aside and told them off like the school children they were behaving like and let the game continue. He ruined the match with that first red card.

3. Teams will be dreading the visit of West Ham. The Hammers usually carry one of the best away fans but even they can’t believe their results on the road so far. Man City still trying to recover from midweek exertions in the CL were quickly put to sword in the opening half – the first an exceptional Victor Moses strike. 6 games in and no team is running away with it this season that’s for certain.

4. Leicester City are the only unbeaten team in the league thus far. The Foxes of Claudio Ranieri just won’t lie down. Last week they came from 2 goals down at home to beat Aston Villa; this, they turned the same deficit around for a point at Stoke City. These points will come in handy as tougher matches are ahead.

5. Watford’s Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo is red hot. In an exclusive interview with he had informed how watched the Newcastle Vs West Ham game during the week “so I can find loopholes to exploit when we play them”. And how. His two finishes were of top top quality and Watford must be glad rejected that big money offer from China in the summer.

    I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made
    good content material as you did, the web shall
    be much more useful than ever before.
