Round 14 of the Premier League was reminiscent of the opening round, with some huge scorelines headlining the weekend. The MoneyMan team provides their weekly views on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly from the past weekend’s action.
Good: The good was Liverpool winning by a touchdown.
Bad: The Bad was Tottenham losing to nil at home against Leicester.
Ugly: The Ugly was Leeds getting smacked by Man Utd
Good: Manchester United. Because with the style of play of Leeds, they put them to the sword and took the opportunity to climb up the table
Bad: Spurs. Losing at home to Leicester showed that Spurs failed their audition for a title race, they were pretenders, top 4 could be hard
Ugly: Crystal Palace getting spanked by Liverpool, soon as Liverpool went 3 nil up, they simply gave up
Good: You simply can’t look past Liverpool for the good. The opening match of the weekend saw Liverpool pump Crystal Palace 7-0. There was a goal for nearly everyone it seemed, Mo Sallah didn’t even start but managed to pick up a brace, but most importantly Liverpool continue to show their champion quality in not losing at home, and also managing to score seven goals without even conceding one, It’s great to see Bobby netting again, as well as Minamino scoring from a start.
Bad: The Bad has to go to a side who has been anything but this year. Tottenham. Spurs dropping points at home against Leicester by conceding and own goal and a penalty doesn’t make for great viewing.
Ugly: The Ugly for me is in the other rugby-like score between Manchester United and Leeds. Not to take away any credit from a clinical yet liberal footballing performance from United, but Leeds were caught snoozing for the first three minutes and then looked like they were struggling out of their slumber for the remaining 87. Sacrificing elements of defence because of an attack strategy is understandable, but conceding six goals and losing in the manner they did is not forgiveable.
