    Just seeing them this morning. Yeesh! They look like shirts that used to be pink but were washed in hot water too often and the color is horribly washed out.

    West Ham 3-1 Man U
    Arsenal 2-0 Watford
    Everton 3-0 Fulham
    Huddersfield 0-2 Spurs
    Man City 2-0 Brighton
    Newcastle 0-2 Leicester
    Wolves 2-0 Southampton
    Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Is this the end for Mourinho? After losing at home to Derby in the Carabao Cup, thismshould have been a return to normalcy against a West Ham squad that has been bad at home and had won 1 of their first 6. Instead, he stayed in his 3-5-2, played another midfielder out of position on the back line, dropped Sanchez out of the 18 (who hasn’t been good since he walked in the door in January) and his team showed nothing. After closing to 2-1, they conceded to Arnautavic, who was unmarked between 2 defenders, 3 minutes later and it was game over.

    Cardiff 1-2 Burnley

    And all of a sudden, Burnley has a 2 game winning streak in the league, although they lost to League 1 side Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup midweek.

    Bournemouth 2-1 Crystal Palace

    Cherries open the scoring on 5 minutes and close it on an 87th minute penalty. Hennessy had 2 huge saves for Palace right before the penalty or Bournemouth would have won at a trot.

    Updating the weekend results

    Brighton 1, West Ham 0
    Everton 2, Leicester 1
    Bournemouth 4, Watford 0
    Tottenham 1, Cardiff 0
    Burnley 1, Huddersfield 1
    Wolverhampton 1, Crystal Palace 0
    Man United 3, Newcastle 2
    Arsenal 5, Fulham 1
    Chelsea 3, Southampton 0
    Liverpool 0, Man City 0

    Takeaways ... Arsenal are dangerous in attack, Man United are a dysfunctional mess but keep notching points, Liverpool are for real, West Ham must have trouble even finding the team bus much less consistent form, and Bournemouth and Wolves are staking strong claims to stick in the upper middle of the table.

    Martial’s goal,against Newcastle cost Man U €10 million. A clause in his transfer agreement from Monacorequired that payment if he reached 25 league goals before January 1, 2019. If he gets to 25 Caps for France, he has 18, it’s another €10 million.

    A clash of the titans led off the weekend.

    Chelsea 2-2 Man U. Ross Barkley equalized at 90+6 for the Blues after a brace from Martial out the Red Devils in front. A near melee at the end as Mourinho got into it with a Chelsea staffer at the end.
    Bournemouth 0-0 Southampton
    Cardiff 4-2 Fulham. Cardiff gets their first win of the season and climbs out of relegation.
    Man City 5-0 Burnley
    Newcastle 0-1 Brighton. Magpies are still winless.
    West Ham 0-1 Spurs
    Wolves 0-2 Watford
    Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool. Huddersfield join Newcastle as the only winless clubs.

    Sunday:
    Everton v. Crystal Palace 11:00 NBCSN

    Monday:
    Arsenal v. Leicester 3:00 NBCSN

    Everton 2-0 Crystal Palace

    Everton save it til the end, scoring both in the last 3 minutes of regular time. Palace slide into a brutal stretch with Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs and Man U in their next 4 league matches.

    Arsenal 3-1 Leicester

    Mesut Özil showed up at The Emirates today and reminded everyone why he was on a £350k per week wage bill. He scored just before the break, sprung Bellerin for an assist for Aubameyang’s first and set Aubameyang up for his second.

    Man City and Liverpool are tied on 23 points, separated by goal differential. Behind them, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs are all tied on 21 points, separated by goal differential. At the foot, Huddersfield and Newcastle are still winless.

    Ozill may have had the best individual game for a midfielder that I've seen in around 5 years or so. I had that game on while I was doing work stuff and he just kept dragging my eyes back to the screen with magic of all sorts.

    You only miss the last 2 years of his reign, not the first 20 when he finished above Spurs. Every year.

    Spurs were so bad during much of that time, it didn't really matter who was in charge in Woolwich.

    I was hoping Arsene would turn into Wade Phillips, a guy who would always do just enough to keep his job, but no more. Man, I loved it when he was head coach at Dallas.

    I think you can go ahead and count on that iffy pitch at Wembley being total crap. Past NFL games have always left English turf looking like Grant Park the day after Lollopallooza.

    Further delays at the new stadium mean that Spurs will not play there until January 13 at the earliest.

    An awful weekend, the scores are secondary. Besides the tragedy in Leicester, England legend Glenn Hoddle suffered a heart attack shortly after his BT Sport Show was over. He was revived by a sound engineer and transported to the hospital where he’s in serious condition.

    Brighton 1-0 Wolves
    Fulham 0-3 Bournemouth
    Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff
    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle
    Watford 3-0 Huddersfield
    Leicester 1-1 West Ham
    Burnley 0-4 Chelsea
    Crystal Palace 2-2 Arsenal
    Man U 2-1 Everton

    Liverpool are top of the table, pending tomorrow’s Spurs/Man City match. Arsenal’s 11 match winning streak was snapped but they’re unbeaten in 12 straight. Newcastle and Huddersfield remain at the foot, winless with 3 draws each.

    Leicester were supposed to host Southampton in a Carabao Cup match on Tuesday but the match was postponed, with an official announcement from the Football League due on Monday.
