With the top four sides winning their respective games in the Premier League, the standings did not change much over the weekend. With the season closing in on it’s busiest of periods, down is the talking points.
5. Paul Clement Is Losing His Job
The levels of inconsistency and the crumbling under pressure which has hailed the Swans this season returned to the fore soon after. Paul Clement has lost six of his last seven games with his side’s last win coming against Huddersfield Town in October.
Clement might be off his duties if the Swans do not get all three points in a must-win clash against West Bromwich Albion, next Saturday.
4. Everton are back on track
Six goals in two games, two clean sheets, tenth in the table. Crisis? Not at Goodison Park anymore! Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of Everton gave a clear indication of how the Toffees are going to set up under his reign.
But Big Sam and his Everton side need to be on their toes as their next match takes them to Anfield to face a Liverpool side high on confidence.
3. David Moyes can sort out the mess at West Ham United
Learning from the tactics deployed by Southampton and Huddersfield Town, Man City’s two previous opponents, West Ham United applied a low block against the current leaders. Understandably so, the Hammers were expected to be without the ball for the majority of the game and putting men behind the ball for longer periods.
Pep Guardiola’s men snatched out a win just because of the sheer class of their side; West Ham not being second best in any possible way.
