5 Things Learned from the Premier League Weekend

502

1) It’s not all defensive issues for Liverpool
A lot has been made of Liverpool leaking goals this season, but misfiring forwards are also a major reason why the Reds find themselves outside the top six.
Jurgen Klopp is feeling the pressure for the first time during his Anfield reign and now faces a massive home clash with Manchester United (Match Odds – Liverpool 8/5, Draw 23/10, Man Utd 8/5) following the international break.

2) Terriers bubble has burst
Huddersfield (7/5 to be relegated) look to have a long, hard winter ahead of them, with the Terriers without a win in five and scoring just one goal during that time.
With Steve Mounie missing through injury, it’s hard to see where the goals are going to come from and with games against Manchester United and Liverpool to come in October – expect a slide down the table soon.

3) Kane v Lukaku
The battle to be the Premier League Top Goalscorer looks like being a two-horse race, even at this early stage of the season.
With Sergio Aguero facing a spell on the sidelines through injury, Harry Kane (8/5) and Romelu Lukaku (5/2) could open up a big gap to the rest. Lukaku leads the way on seven, with Kane one behind the Manchester United frontman.

4) Rafa can lead Magpies to safety
Rafael Benitez has already shown this season that he is still one of the best tacticians in Europe and he knows what it takes to keep Newcastle (7/1 to be relegated) in the Premier League.
The Magpies have lost just one of their last five games and they have decent run of fixtures in October, which could see them remain in mid-table.

5) Rooney can save Koeman’s job
Everton (10/1 Top Six Finish) clearly wanted a striker in the transfer window and having failed, their attacking problems are there for all to see.
Ronald Koeman seems determined to play Wayne Rooney in a deeper role, but he now needs to change tact and put the former England skipper up top….or face losing his job.
