GW 10

Watford 1 - 0 Man Utd

A great win for the home side, Man Utd a quality outfit and will trouble most teams this season, Watford, have a solid unit and improve every time I see their tactics and team, I prefer the balance to the Utd side more than what I have done in the past

Nunez 64 Mins - (Damsgaard)again the striker is quality and wouldn't look out of place in the top teams
MOTM - Nunez

Brentford 1 - 1 Newcastle

Got to give Welshy a lot of credit for the starting xi he is putting out these days, experience and youthful and a nice mix of both, Ludy will definitely be up there come end of season, I felt the away side would get a lot of possession just with the quality they have, not saying Brentford aren't just Newcastle a bit ahead atm, however, the away side were caught on the break at times and they blew the chance to get 3 points by maybe being too lackadaisical

Goals -
Ibrahimovic 77 - super cross in by ASM, the young striker got above Dias and nodded home
Lewandowski obviously, supported well by Salah on 43 mins
MOTM - Koopemeiners

Arsenal 2 - 1 Spurs

When it was coming no one knew but it has happened Spurs have lost there first league game of the season, two fantastic sides going really well, a well balanced fixture with neither gaining control of, Hakimi I feel would have some joy down the right hand side for Arsenal and he provided two assits for the front two, Spurs can cause problems all over the pitch, but Arsenals back3/5 coped well today

Goals -
Dybala (7) and Aubameyang,(53) both set up by MOTM - Hakimi
KDB 51 A thunderbolt free kick

Leeds vs City

Tasty clash this, Lubo going with the 4-2-3-1 up against a rigid 3-5-2 employed by fan.

I feel (as do others) that the best way to hurt a 3 man defence, is to play high and wide, isolate the back line and punish them... I'm just not sure Foden as good as he is the man to operte in those spaces and get in behind.. Chiesa in a way isn't really a wingers winger either, but I concede the point that the two of them would keep City's WB's occupied. Kane for me, even with Depay there just feels a little too isolated at times.
I do generally like the balance of Lubo's side though but feel that City hold the cards in key areas.

City have started to improve and Fan employs a decent 352, very good back line now that Rudiger has found his form. Kante and Niguez are a match for Jorgy/SMS and Bernardo is a baller of the highest quality. The front-two have the pace and power to hurt most teams.

Slots are slightly in Leeds favour, obvs boosted by home adv

Fruity: H/A/A

Leeds 1-2 City
Kane (Chiesa)
Werner (Lukaku) Lukaku (Werner)

MOTM - Kante, won the battle to control the middle

Chelsea vs. Liverpool

Chelsea have some great balance and quality in this side, I really like it. One weakness would be Wan Bissaka for me, I’m not a huge fan, but I suppose he helps with the balance – Pope also not the best ball playing keeper – but this is me trying to find faults.

Tino’s Liverpool had some good ideas and a very unique game plan and setup. That said, this is a massively tall order away from home and against the huge amount of quality Chelsea have.

Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool
Mbappe (Mahrez)

Wolves vs. Leicester

Tino went for a hard pressing style, but not sure that quite works with the likes of Busquets, Soucek, Insigne, Ronaldo, not known for their pressing football for me. Saying that, it’s a good side. The front three are up there with the best in this league. I think Konate and possibly Soucek could do with improving on, I prefer Veratti deeper too.

Leicester have good technicians throughout and a nimble front three that I felt would cause problems. There’s no real weakpoint in that XI and felt there’s a good blend of qualities.

Leicester are the inform team in the league, but Wolves have home advantage. I felt Wolves subs didn’t offer a huge amount, whereas Leicester had a lot from the bench.

Red card spins: W/L/L – Leicester red, Goretzka! minute 50!

This of course impacts the game, and helps Wolves rebalance the slots more. This could go either way now.

Match result slots: D/L/L – Tino will feel unlucky given the red card, the random picker liked Leicester today, but Leicester's superior quality, balance and subs perhaps saw them deserve that bit of fortune in the slots.

Wolves 2-3 Leicester
Ronaldo (no assist), Mane (Busquets)
Lautaro (Neymar), Bruno (no assist), Marquinhos (Neymar)
Red card: Goretzka
