Mauricio Pochettino is getting the best out of Tottenham’s players
Spurs started slowly this season, but Poch is finally getting the best out of not only Tottenham’s big name stars, but also the youngsters. Dembele and Lamela have improved no end from their decidedly average performances of last season, while young guns Dier, Alli, Mason and, of course, Harry Kane, are all impressing on a regular basis. It’s probably too early to say Spurs will finish in the top four, but Pochettino has certainly built and developed a squad capable of challenging the big boys.

Leicester are genuine contenders for the European spots
There was a lot of scepticism in the Midlands when Claudio Ranieri was unveiled as Leicester’s new boss, but my word he’s doing a good job. At the time of writing the Foxes are sitting pretty in third; one point ahead of Manchester United, two ahead of Tottenham and five in front of Liverpool. We’re only 11 games into the season, and there’s a long, long way to go yet, but Leicester are certainly in with a shot of bagging at least a Europa League spot.

Mourinho’s attitude is making Chelsea a laughing stock
Chelsea are one of the most disliked teams in the Premier League – that’s been established for a number of years – but this season Jose Mourinho’s attitude is ensuring Chelsea are not only disliked, but becoming a little bit of an embarrassment. His constant whinging, whining, moping and childish behaviour is at times excruciating, but more often than not is little more than a fine example of a manager quickly losing the plot. This is not a good time to be a Blues fan.

Manchester United supporters need to be more patient with LvG
In recent decades the fans at Old Trafford have grown accustomed not only to winning, but also to seeing their team play attractive, flowing football. Unfortunately for the Red Devils faithful, LvG has brought a style all of his own to the Premier League, and his slow, methodical tactics have not always been well received. What is clear, however, is that Manchester United are getting results. The victories may not always be stylish, and rarely are they comprehensive, but at the end of the day three points is all that matters.

Aston Villa will be relegated
They just aren’t good enough. It’s that simple. Aston Villa, who only 5 or 6 years ago were challenging for European places, are now a shadow of the team they once were. Since Martin O’Neill left the club the squad has grown steadily weaker, to the point where relegation and the subsequent total revamp is all but assured. Things at Villa Park will get worse before they get better.

Andros Townsend is doing himself no favours
As a Spurs fan, I would say that around fifty percent of my Tottenham related frustrations can be attributed to Andros Townsend, the England winger with so much potential and so little end product. The Andros Townsend system of run down the wing, cut inside, shoot miles wide, then repeat, has become somewhat tiresome in the last year, but now he’s decided to make himself even more unpopular by fighting with Spurs staff. I doubt many fans will be overly upset if he doesn’t play for the club again.
