A week goes on and suddenly Sunderland are in search of a third consecutive win, while Koeman will be returning to St. Mary’s, while Chelsea host mentally toughened Spurs after they crashed out of the Champions League midweek.
Pocchetino won’t be a happy man after they crashed out of the Champions League this season, and certainly won’t be happy about the fact that Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in all of their last six games. The likes of Harry Kane will have to be on their toes if they are to get any result out of it. Tottenham could not have hoped for any tougher test than a run-out against the Premier League leaders with their apparently unassailable defence along with the second best attack in the league at the moment.
After two commanding performances from David Moyes’ men, their next challenge will be high-flying Liverpool who will look to bounce back after sharing points with Southampton last week. The only factor that might be haunting them is that, Sunderland have never won a game at Anfield in the Premier League era.
After dropping points against Manchester United at Old Trafford and drawing against PSG midweek in an unconvincing performance, Arsene Wenger will be looking to come back to winning ways as they face The Cherries, who have a horrible record against the top-5 teams in the league. Judging by the standards, it will be a routine win for Arsenal, but well, we can never know the power surrounding Eddie Howe.
West Ham United will be facing Manchester United twice in four days, as they prepare for their burdensome and dogged life in the Premier League and the EFL Cup. With the Manchester double-header to be followed by games against Liverpool and Arsenal, some stories suggesting that the club chiefs have started to think on a long-term basis are not just unwelcome but rather cruel.
Elsewhere, there has only been one home win in the last eight matches between Watford and Stoke, and that shows us how bad they are performing in the league at the moment. We should also get to the fact that Crystal Palace and Swansea City have managed just four wins and a staggering 15 defeats in 24 Premier League matches so far this season which is simply unacceptable from Clubs of their Stature and the ambition they thrive for.
