All teams have still 10 matches to play, but top 4 already lost more goals than the teams like MU, Chelsea, Arsenal or Liverpool used usually to lose during whole seasons. What do you think?
It's just been sloppy from the big teams. Says a lot about the quality of the rest of the league though that Spurs' best season for about 20 years has them only just third, and Chelsea are having their worst league run for about 12 years.
Man Utd have been bedding in a new inexperienced keeper with a reputation for being a bit dodgy, as well as two inexperienced cbs, and with a midfield sorely needing a playmaker.
Chelsea haven't really recovered since Wilkins left, the players have more power than the manager, and the squad is full of egos that think they don't have to work hard because they'll just get the manager sacked if they don't like how he plays.
Arsenal are over reliant on Robin Van Persie. If he gets injured, our striking options are Marouane Chamakh (1 goal in 16 starts this season), or Ju Young Park (0 goals in 0 appearances this season). We've missed Wilshere in midfield, haven't named an unchanged defence for months (haven't named an unchanged side for over 2 years) and they are a bit ropey at times when fully fit anyway. We have half a left back, and only one right back that should be starting. A formation built around Fabregas and RVP only, which doesn't accommodate the rest of our squad very well, and a lack of a plan B is killing us. Even Barcelona play ugly when needed.
