Week 13 (2017-2018) EPL Results and Analyses.
Those who live in a glass house should not throw stones: Mohammed Salah put the ball behind the net of his former club but said ‘no’ to jubilation, understandably he didn’t want to add insult to the injury of his former employers. (social media pic)
Week 13 Results:
West Ham 1-1 Leicester: the Foxes and the Hammers, hmmmm I reserve my comments.
Crystal Palace 2-1 Stoke City: the Eagles narrowly escaped with 3 points.
Man United 1-0 Brighton: And Man United won in the end.
Newcastle 0-3 Watford: what an impressive game from the Hornets.
Swansea 0-0 Bournemouth: the Swans and the Cherries were selfless for they shared the spoils in the end.
Tottenham 1-1 West Brom: New coach, new philosophy, fresh air, peak motivation, hmmmm freshers’ syndrome experienced and expressed by the Baggies, but would it last?
If the new manager is able to diagnose, identify the problem(s) and proffer sound intervention the syndrome could transform to lasting performance and success.
Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: the Reds had a field day after all the Blues were cautious and conscious of the attacking exploits of their hosts and in the end 1 point is better than none. The Red Devils did similarly but the Blues were more decisive and attack-oriented!
Southampton 4-1 Everton: excellent performance though lukewarm describes the Saints after all they’ve not been at their best so far this term.
Burnley 0-1 Arsenal: in so far as the referee had not blown the final whistle teams must not give up. And the Gunners fought till the close of the game and in the end harvested 3 points which is far better than 1! However Man City and Man United (first and second on the log respectively) are showing more traits of champions for winning games they ought to have drawn and consolidating on their past successes.
Huddersfield 1-2 Man City: and the Terriers failed to deny the Citizens a leveler and failed again to stop them from getting a winner!
