Tuesday and Wednesday saw every team the Premier League and the Football League enter the field… and here are the main points to take away.
Man City are out of the title race
Not too long ago, Man City were the ones second place behind Chelsea, showing the only threat to their rival’s title chase. Now they are lingering around the bottom Champions League place.
And, having lost 2-1 away to Chelsea, it looks like their only outside hope is gone.
Spurs are seven points behind Chelsea, posing the only potential threat.
Newcastle faced controversy
The match officials from the Newcastle match have apparently been removed from their duty at the weekend, or so I’ve heard.
A goal from a penalty for Newcastle was disallowed because their player, Dwight Gayle, encroached the area. A free kick was awarded – however, in Law 14, a scored penalty should be retaken, and a missed penalty should be given an indirect free kick.
Leicester are back
It’s been six weeks since football went up in arms at the decision to sack Claudio Raineiri.
On Tuesday, Leicester beat Sunderland 2-0, meaning their new manager – Craig Shakespeare – has a 100% record.
Still think it’s the wrong decision, eh?
