Talking points from Premier League Week 10

Jose Mourinho edges closer to exit

mourinho west ham united

The Chelsea manager is under tremendous pressure to deliver and has failed yet again. The Premier League champions crashed to another disappointing defeat against rivals West Ham. The Blues have looked hapless this season and if something does not change drastically, Mourinho is likely to be handed his P45 once again.

Jurgen Klopp is no miracle worker


The German will need time to clean up Brendan Rodgers’ mess. The former Borussia Dortmund manager inherited a team packed with average players and it shows on the pitch. Although the Reds have played with more desire and determination since the sacking of Rodgers, Klopp will need time and a few transfer windows to get Liverpool firing once again.

Arsenal are a force to be reckoned with

Arsenal FC vs Galatasaray Istanbul

After a poor start to the season Arsenal have bounced back in some style. Wins against Manchester United, Everton, Bayern Munich this month has shown that the Gunners are well capable of competing at the top end of the table. Despite an injury to Aaron Ramsey, Wenger’s side never looked vulnerable against Everton. If they can keep up their current form and avoid key injuries, Arsenal are definite title contenders.

Also the consistency of in form trio (Ozil, Sanchez and Giroud) will be key.
