The third week of the Premier League is done and dusted and this one threw up some remarkable results. Whilst lowly Wolves managed to hold the mighty Man City, Man Utd were humbled at home by Spurs. Rampant Liverpool managed to just scrape past Brighton whilst Bournemouth completed a fantastic comeback against Everton despite being a man down. The thrills and spills of this league never cease to amaze us. So here are the three things we learned from gameweek 3:
1) Amazing Allison
When Liverpool announced the club record signing of Allison from Roma, everyone thought they are getting a world class goalkeeper. No one had imagined that Liverpool would be getting a great dribbler as well! The way Allisom showed his dribbling skills against Glenn Murray, it was clear that this guy has it all. He also made a couple of decent saves and he seems to fit the Klopp mould very well. Although there was one iffy moment for him in the game when he tried to overplay, Liverpool fans would be really pleased with his overall performance thus far. He is likely to be a great signing for them!
2) Cherry On Top
The cherries were done and dusted against Everton. They were two goals down, a man down, and with very little in terms of creativity on the pitch. But then the comeback started. They got one back and then Tarkowski turned up the heat as usual. He managed to equalize for Bournemouth and bailed his team out. Howe will be really pleased with this show of character. He has drilled that never say die spirit into his team and the results are there for all to see. Bournemouth are likely to end up this season in comfortable mid table.
3) United Divided
Despite all the calls for Jose to respect him, he is now living off past glories. His style of management simply does not work in 2018. He has a great squad. He has a world champion captain in Pogba. He has the fans’ support. And yet he has failed to deliver. This defeat to Spurs means that now this is United’s worst start to a PL season. Considering the names David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal, that is a massive statistic! Perhaps it is time to throw out the excuses and to try to save face. Otherwise United are staring at a really long and hard season!
To sum up, this weekend has amazed us no end. Even though City did not win, they are still favourites for the title. They just need to keep themselves motivated, and they might just retain the league.
