Here are ten things we learnt from the games this weekend;

  1. Pogba Showed His Worth; pogba sou

His calming presence in midfield is one that has been lacking in Manchester United for a very long time. Like Mourinho said, he needed a midfielder who can defend like a 6 and attack like an 8. In Pogba, he has definitely gotten that maverick player.

  1. Is Aguero The Best Player In The Premier League? aguero stoke

The most interesting thing about Aguero’s ability is the level of consistency he brings into every game. Against Stoke City, he was virtually unplayable. He constantly tormented the Stoke City’s defense until he was brought off after scoring a brace in the game.

  1. Mike Dean Should Be Commended;

In the Manchester city vs Stoke city game, Mike Dean duly stamped it out after first giving Manchester city a penalty for Shawcross pulling down Otamendi, he duly punished Sterling for the same offence by giving Stoke City their own penalty and it definitely ended grappling during set-pieces in the game.

  1. Liverpool Were Brought Back Down To Earth; livbun

Just when one thought it would end this season, especially with Jurgen Klopp saying “This is now my team”, the ugly Liverpool rears its head again. Just days after beating Arsenal at the Emirates, the fans would have been boastful of competing for the league. Just days after, they are given a reality check.

  1. Squad Depth Yet Again Rescues Chelsea; chewat

The architect here though was Cesc Fabregas. The Spaniard played a game that suggested to Antonio Conte his talismanic midfielder should be in the starting lineup. He was vital in the first goal which was scored by another substitute, Batshuayi and was the architect of the winning goal, setting up Costa nicely.

  1. Hull City’s Impressive Run Continues; hulswa

In their first game, it was Robert Snodgrass who came up clutch, in this game, Shawn Maloney was the architect as he came off the bench to score two goals, thereby giving them maximum points from their games in the premier league. Nice one lads.

In their game against Everton, they went ahead early in the first half and you definitely thought for a Pulis side, the worst they’ll get would be a draw, unfortunately, they lost, prompting Tony Pulis to question the club’s board for not signing the players he needs to mount a challenge.

  1. David Moyes Premier League Woes Continues; moyes middles

He was known to be a very good coach due to his impressive performances with Everton.  He was terrible at Manchester United, until he was sacked. He was again sacked at Real Sociedad and now with another chance to prove his mettle again in the premier league, his Sunderland side has not started well and were deservedly beaten by newly promoted side Middlesbrough.

  1. Negredo Proving An Inspired Signing For Middlesbrough; negredo middles

Aguero, left for Valencia and it seriously was a topsy turvy time for him at the Mestella. He eventually got another shot at the premier league and has been tremendous for the newly promoted side, scoring in the opening game and making two assists in their impressive win over the weekend against Sunderland.

  1. Arsenal And Leicester city Struggles Continue; arslei

No-one expected this game to be a cracker, given the way the opening games went down with both teams loosing. Not even the presence of Ozil in the second half could bring a breakthrough, Mahrez on the other hand also tried his best and just like the first game, couldn’t get that vital breakthrough. Both teams were first and second last season after putting up impressive performances all season.
