5 things we learned from the latest Premier League gameweek

The latest Premier League gameweek drew to a close on Sunday, February 5th.

There were a number of high-profile matches that played out over this past weekend.

We also saw some interesting relegation scraps and the battle for 4th-place heat up.

Here are five things we learned from the latest Premier League gameweek.

Chelsea still can’t score

Eight signings and over £300m spent but Chelsea are still having problems in front of goal. The Blues drew 0-0 with Fulham on Friday evening in a game they probably should have won.

Chelsea dominated, having 63 per cent of the possession and 13 shots. However, just three of those efforts were on target, with it still very clear the west Londoners are in dire need of a no.9.

Everton might stay up

Everton looked set to be relegated from the Premier League for the first time ever this season.

Something’s not right at Manchester City

Phil Foden still ‘ill’ Kevin De Bruyne benched in a high-profile game, Manchester City’s two best centre-backs left on the bench whilst the starting defence struggled against Tottenham.

Manchester City fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday afternoon. But it was not necessarily the result that raised eyebrows, instead, it was the team selection and the manner in which City lost. After Joao Cancelo’s shock loan to Bayern Munich it is clear something is not right behind the scenes at City and that is unlikely to be helped by the FFP charges brought against them on Monday.

Southampton are in trouble

After a 3-0 battering at the hands of Brentford, Southampton fans called for Nathan Jones to be sacked.

The Saints have now lost six of their seven league matches under Jones and sit dead bottom of the Premier League with little sign of an upturn on the horizon.

Time for Klopp to go?

Liverpool were smashed 3-0 by Wolves on Saturday, a side who had previously scored just 12 goals in 20 Premier League games. The Reds are now 10th in the division with nearly as many losses as wins this campaign. Granted, Liverpool have had some injury issues of late, but even when those players return in the coming weeks it is hard to see Liverpool improving too much.
