Gameweek 10 of the PL threw up some amazing results. While Palace battled back to draw with Arsenal, 10-man West Ham nearly beat Leicester away, conceding a late late equaliser. The way this season is going, it looks like we have a really close title race on our hands. So let us have a look at the 3 things we learned from PL Gameweek 10:
1) Palace Power
Coming into the weekend, Crystal Palace knew that their next 4 fixtures are against the top 6 teams. Many experts were worried as to what will happen to them over these weeks. However, Roy Hodgson’s side showed great composure and managed to sneak a 2-2 draw with much fancied Arsenal. This result shows that Palace should not be underestimated and they have the ability to beat anyone.
2) Lively Liverpool
Liverpool’s forward line had not been performing up to the mark in recent months. They had been a bit shy on the goals front. But against Cardiff, they showed their class again. They smashed 4 past the Cardiff defence, with Mo Salah back in sublime form. Liverpool are continuing to show that they will challenge for the title this season and the others better watch out!
3) Comfortable City
There is no stopping Man City. For all the praise received by Mauricio Pochettino, he has failed to have an impact in a big game yet again. Tottenham are again likely to fall short of a title challenge. They were beaten 1-0 by City and they missed a host of chances. Pochettino really needs a trophy now but he is unlikely to win one. On the other hand City continued their great run and are now firm favorites for the title.
To sum up, it was a brilliant week of football, with exciting matches all over. The battles at the top and the bottom have become even tighter, with just a few points between the top 5 as well as the bottom 6. This season really feels like a really exciting one!
