Faceplants and grim weather: 8 Premier League hot takes
Klopp's buck-passing and Knockaert's failed knee slide head our reactions from the past weekend in the top flight.
Jurgen Klopp might be better at defending than Dejan Lovren
The Liverpool boss can’t really be absolved of any blame, though.
He did pick Lovren in the first place.
Manchester United should have tried to beat Liverpool
Thrashings by Manchester City and Spurs prove that Klopp’s knack of beating the best teams in the league is no longer a thing.
With his side now five points behind the City, Jose Mourinho should consider his side’s draw at Anfield two points dropped, rather than one gained.
Manchester United should have tried to beat Huddersfield
This one isn't really Mourinho's fault, as it was the United players who looked like they didn’t really want to be at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
Can’t blame them in that weather, though. Grim.
Arsenal’s stylish playmaker is back
And Mesut Ozil had a good game, too.
Spurs are England’s second-best team
Here’s to another year of putting the pressure on the eventual champions without actually winning anything themselves.
Watford don’t deserve a pat on the head
This wasn’t a case of the underdogs giving the champions a fright.
Watford are a good side this season, and shouldn’t be congratulated for playing well in a game that they should have put away.
Knee slides are still stupid
We said weeks ago that this was football’s most dangerous celebration.
Judging by his faceplant on Friday night, Anthony Knockaert didn’t listen.
Leicester should sack their manager every week
Michael Appleton has done his bit.
It’s on to the next interim boss if the Foxes want to put together a run of form.
