Gameweek 12 of the PL threw up some really interesting results. While Chelsea failed to beat Everton at home, Man City dominated Man Utd. Arsenal also struggled against Wolves and this meant that only 3 of the so called big six managed to win. So let us have a look at the 3 things we learned from PL Gameweek 12:
1) Clueless Chelsea
Chelsea struggled to a 0-0 draw against Everton at Stamford Bridge. They dominated the ball and did create some chances, but did not take them. There is a lack of killing instinct at the top end of the pitch which is harming their title chances. Morata missed chances and was caught offside too many times. If this continues, Chelsea will have to settle for third place this season.
2) Dominant City
Man City were sublime as usual. They cruised to a 3-1 win over lacklustre United. They were driven by David Silva and Sergio Aguero. City started well and were 1-0 ahead at half time. To be honest, they could have had more goals. United were struggling to even match up to City who were unlucky as well. In the second half they added two more goals and Martial’s penalty was nothing but a consolation.
3) Lucky Liverpool
Liverpool beat Fulham 2-0, but they were also a bit lucky in the game. This is because their first goal should have been disallowed and Fulham could have had a goal themselves seconds before the incident. Anyway, Liverpool managed to score a second after half time, winning comfortably in the end. But the performance was far from convincing and they could have easily drawn the game 1-1.
To sum up, it was a great weekend of football but there were few shocks around as well. The top 4 are not separated by 5 points and the rest of the league is struggling to keep up. If the same trend remains, we will not have a tough competition for the top 4 for the first time in many years. At the top, City look too good for the rest of the league.
