The best teams can’t always be the best. Sometimes the smallest teams can hold the biggest teams to ransom.
Arsenal had a goalless draw against Middlesbrough.They failed to use their whopping 75% possession to produce goals and, consequently, gained only one point from the game. The Emirates Stadium was hushed.
The Gunners did have a massive win during the week in the Champions League and, so, as Wenger pointed out in his post- match interview, the team had tired legs and lacked the creativity needed to produce a winning result. Don’t worry, all will be forgiven.
The Gunners are still on top of the PL table with 20 points. However, the gap has been closed between them and their competitors.
Liverpool defeated West Brom 2-1 to rise to second place on the Premier League table. A goal from Mané and a goal from Coutinho meant that the Reds could gain three glorious points that would put them level with Arsenal, with a total of 20 points! The title race is on!
Leicester, the PL champions, managed to defeat Crystal Palace 3-1. However, they’re only at 12th position on the PL table, a big drop from where they were last season.
Times have changed. Teams have changed. This season’s trophy is anyone’s to take!
