Chelsea CANNOT buy a win and Leeds NEVER give up: What we learnt from the Premier League today

March 18, 2023

Goals were everywhere in the Premier League today as Manchester City and Manchester United face FA Cup duties this weekend, and it was an interesting Saturday.

Chelsea has looked resurgent lately, and fans expected them to earn another win against relegation-threatened Everton, but things don’t always go how you expect.

Tottenham also seemed to struggle and Leeds United continues to show the will to fight for their PL future, while Aston Villa is making progress without being noticed under Unai Emery. Here are the things we learnt from the Premier League today:

Chelsea cannot buy a win

Chelsea has spent over  £500m in the last two transfer windows, yet Graham Potter’s men are struggling to win. It seemed they had returned to form with three consecutive wins in all competitions before their game against Everton.

This made them favourites to beat the Toffees. However, the Blues allowed Ellis Simms to score a late goal for Everton and their game ended in a 2-2 draw.

This means their winning run has been ended by a club that is just working its way away from the drop zone and it simply shows, you can buy all the players in the world and still won’t buy a win.

Leeds never gives up

Leeds United are showing they really mean business in terms of staying up in the Premier League, and their win against Wolves this weekend showed a team that will not give up the fight.

Julen Lopetegui’s Wolves have been in fine form in recent weeks and would have expected to win that game at home, but the Whites were determined and raced into a shock 3-0 lead.

Wolves eventually scored twice, but Leeds were not done, and they found the back of the net again to make it 4-2. If that does not make you fear them, nothing will.

The race to beat the Premier League drop this season is very close one winning like this means Javier Gracia’s side can survive the drop.

Aston Villa is making progress

Aston Villa earned another impressive win again this weekend against Bournemouth. Because the Cherries are struggling with relegation, it is easy to think they should have won the game anyways.

However, the same Bournemouth team defeated Liverpool not so long ago, and the win means Villa are undefeated in four games, three of those have ended in wins for them.

Unai Emery took over a very ambitious Villa side. The former Arsenal coach is redeeming himself so far, which means we will see more impressive achievements with the Spaniard in charge.

While everyone is focusing on the top four and relegation battles, Villa is doing well, and it will not be a surprise if they finish this season inside the top ten.

Conte is tired of coaching Tottenham

Nothing is worse than a manager who is unhappy to be at the job, and at the moment, it is best for Tottenham to sack Antonio Conte.

After his side ended their game against Southampton in a 3-3 draw, the Italian attacked his players in an extra-ordinary rant and he even said he was tired of keeping quiet, suggesting he has bottled the frustration for a long time.

Conte said: “I see selfish players, players that don’t want to help each other and don’t put their heart into this.

“There’s no fire, no desire. You need to have this in every moment. When you are NOT a team, you can’t improve”.

Adding: “Here’s always the same, every season. No matter who’s the manager.

“If they want to continue in this way, they can change the manager, a lot of managers, but the situation cannot change. Believe me”.

Conte seems very tired and the best decision will be to put him out of his misery and fire him as soon as possible.
