Futydose: Three Things We Learned From PL Gameweek 11


Gameweek 11 of the PL saw loads and loads of goals. While Man City managed to score 6 against Southampton, Chelsea hit 3 against Palace. In other results, Man Utd sneaked past Bouremouth while Spurs beat Wolves 3-2 away from home. Arsenal and Liverpool played out a 1-1 draw. So let us have a look at the 3 things we learned from PL Gameweek 11:

1) Spurs Spurt

Spurs were typically flamboyant against Wolves in the initial phase of the game. They built a 3-0 lead early in the second half and were looking comfortable. Then they showed their soft underbelly again as 2 penalties were awarded to Wolves who scored them to make it 2-3. Wolves had a late chance to steal a draw but they were not lucky enough to get a third penalty which they deserved. Nevertheless, Spurs need to improve if they are to challenge for the title.

2) City Crush Saints

Man City smashed Southampton by 6 goals to 1. They were in sublime form as Aguero and Sterling ran rout. The saints pulled one back through a Danny Ings penalty in the first half, but it was never going to be enough. City are threatening to run away with the title again and this would be a remarkable achievement for Pep Guardiola.

3) Unconvincing United

Man Utd were struggling against Bournemouth in the first half. The cherries took an early lead and could have been further ahead by half time if they had taken their chances. But United came back through Martial and in the final moments of the game stole it via Marcus Rashford. Despite the three points, they were far from convincing and still trail 6th placed Bournemouth in the Premier League table.

To sum up, it was a great weekend of football which was full of goals. There is now a 2 point cushion for City at the top, which could be a warning to the rest. If they again go on a winning run, they will be hard to stop. Anyhow, the Manchester derby next weekend is likely to be a cracker with United also improving recently.
