First Results of English Premier League
In the new season of the championship of England, fans have already seen quite a few unexpected results. One of the main disappointments at this stage is Manchester United, that not only does not fight for the first place, but also runs the risk of being kicked out of the Champions League altogether.
The reason for the unsuccessful performance is a whole bunch of factors, some of them were obvious already in summer. Thus, they include:
Lack of good defense players. The defense line of the Red Devils consists of Lindelof and Jones, who regularly scores to their own goal. As a result, even one of the best goalkeepers in the world, David De Gea, can do nothing in this situations.
Bad shape of some leaders. After the World Cup, Pogba and Lukaku were noticeably tired, and so far they have not demonstrated their full potential.
Unsuccessful coaching decisions of Mourinho. It seems that the Portuguese has largely exhausted himself in the United, because he often makes the same type of substitutions. For example, he fielded Fellaini counting on high balls and the Belgian performance at the «second floor».
However, this season there are those who quite unexpectedly showed their best. First of all, it is London Arsenal.
Gunners’ Progress in Current Season
This summer, the Gunners have changed the head coach; now they are led by the Spanish specialist Unai Emery. The coach quickly found understanding with the team leaders and, despite the initial setbacks, there has been a whole series of matches during which the team scored 3 points so important for them.
As a result, they got a place in the Champions League zone and fans’ hopes for further progress. It’s clear that the Gunners have the room for growth, and the main question here is stability of their results. By now, there have been too few games of Arsenal against really tough rivals to be able to draw conclusions regarding their performance.
It is also important for the fans that the team not only wins, but also demonstrates interesting and attacking game, which even neutral fans like. Time will tell whether Emery's squad can keep the bar set throughout the season.
