Ten video games within the English Premier League and the title race is beginning to scorching up. As anticipated, a weekend of all-action soccer has left us with some speaking factors.
VAR is the enemy
For Liverpool, it was two points dropped at the Amex Stadium as VAR took heart stage as soon as once more. Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane each noticed objectives dominated out for offside. A late penalty- and a harsh one- was given a lot to Jurgen Klopp’s chagrin. It acquired worse when James Milner pulled out of the sport with an damage cry.
It now appears as if there are three sure issues in life; Air, Demise and the reigning champions’ damage woes.
Mahrez on the triple
Riyad Mahrez reminded us all of his high quality on Saturday as Manchester City returned to a familiar scoreline against Burnley.

It was certainly a basic second-half efficiency from the Pink Devils, and whereas the ex-Paris Saint-Germain man might not be the precise dream identification for a striker, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must be asking; what’s the dream then, particularly after at the moment’s efficiency?
Drab draw on the Bridge
You’ll count on Jose Mourinho to park the bus in a excessive profile recreation like Sunday’s conflict in opposition to Chelsea. And he did. For each groups chasing the summit of the desk, both facet would have most well-liked all three factors. A solitary level it was ultimately and it appears as if each groups accepted that wholeheartedly.
One other week, one other distress on the Emirates
The gory days are again on the Emirates. This time although, the followers shoulud be fortunate they didn’t have to observe one other heartbreaking efficiency from the stands. A primary league victory on the Emirates for Wolverhampton Wanderers means the Gunners are actually in 14th place, already 8 factors behind leaders and fierce neighbours Tottenham Hotspur after ten video games performed. Spurs prime of the desk, Arsenal shedding video games quickly. It isn’t a superb time for the common Arsenal fan.
