Gameweek 14 threw up some amazing results. Liverpool scraped past Everton in injury time with a really lucky winner while Southampton held United to a 2-2 draw. Man City continued their winning run but Spurs lost to Arsenal in a thrilling North London Derby. So here is a look at the three things we learned from PL Gameweek 14:
1) Arsenal Arrival
Ever since the arrival of Unai Emery, Arsenal had not won a big game. The Spanish manager was still struggling in terms of organising his defence, and had lost to City and Chelsea while drawing with Liverpool. But this week they smashed Spurs 4-2. It was a really enjoyable game but Spurs were lucky to get even 2 goals. They got a lucky penalty and also got a red card. But Arsenal just didn’t stop attacking them and comfortably won the game. They are top 4 contenders for sure.
2) Saints Revival
Southampton started the game in the bottom three. They really wanted the three points in order to improve their prospects of staying up. Although they didn’t get the three points against Man Utd, but they played really well. They were 2 up very quickly in the game. Even though they conceded two goals but they got a good point. Mark Hughes was sacked today, but the Saints have enough quality in the squad. They might just stay up this season when the new manager comes in.
3) Lucky Liverpool
Everton played a fantastic game. They went toe-to-toe against Liverpool for the 90 minutes and created the better chances. But right at the death, Liverpool scraped the win as Jordan Pickford made a big mistake. Origi was the goalscorer and in a sense he has repaid the faith shown in him by Klopp. Liverpool remain in the title race.
To sum up, it was a great weekend of football and there is even more to come. There are midweek games in the PL and it is likely to get tighter in the race for the top 4!
