Yet another enthralling round of
Premier League football nearly comes to an end. After 36 goals were scored so
far with 1 game still to come, it really was a weekend to remember for most of
the attacking players of Premier League. With Southampton scoring heavily and
Arsenal losing more pace and ground, here are four arguments that were the
characteristic features of 8th weekend of Barclays Premier League.
Chelsea entered this round with 5
points gap over the 2nd number team. And Jose Mourinho’s men did no harm to
their form at all on Saturday. Being the only team unbeaten in the Premier
League, Chelsea faced a tough test from resilient Crystal Palace. But the Blues
had too much ammunition in their arsenal for its competitor. Fabregas was
brilliant as usual and Oscar reminded his team mates about his class. So maybe
a lot of football is yet to be played, But Chelsea has all the chances to go on
and win the Premier League title this year.
2- Rampant Aguero
If you talk about the most consistent
player in English Premier League over the past few years, Sergio Aguero tops
the list without a doubt. With the best Goal per minute ratio in Premier League
antiquity, Aguero also surpassed Carlos Tevez as the highest goal scorer in
Manchester City’s history. And he did this after scoring four goals against a
sorry Tottenham side. He was literally unstoppable after making the most of
every chance he got in that match.
Everybody knew Liverpool would
struggle after losing their best player Luis Suarez to Barcelona. But the way
Liverpool are playing at the moment, it airs much more difficult task for the
Merseyside club. With just 1 clean sheet so far, Liverpool had to rely upon 2
own goals scored by an unlucky QPR side to get all 3 points. Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel
were blown away by Eduardo Vargas but Brendan Rodgers might be the luckiest man on
earth to return home with a win. Every day is not Sunday, so Liverpool needs
huge improvement in their ranks to get something worthwhile this season.
4- Wenger in Trouble
Arsene Wenger was heavily
criticised for his lack of ambition in transfer market. And after suffering a
series of injuries, Arsenal’s thin squad is caught off guard. With just 2 wins
in 8 league matches, it seems that Wenger’s historic Managerial career is in
danger. Last year, Arsenal were on the top of League table on the mid of
October. But after sitting on 8th spot at the moment, Wenger has to avert the
crisis as soon as possible, otherwise Calamity will overcome him.
