It is now a question of when Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho will be shown the door after his side went down 3-1 to Liverpool in Saturday’s English Premier League (EPL) match at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho’s future has always been hanging in the balance since the season started and it was expected that the pressure would ease on him with a moral boosting win over Liverpool.
And the Blues started well with an early goal from Ramires who head home after just four minutes.
But goals from Philippe Coutinho who scored a brace and Christian Benteke ensured Liverpool picked all three points away and piled more pressure on Mourinho.
Saturday’s loss was the sixth by Chelsea who remain four points just above the relegation zone.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few days and whether Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich will stomach more losses.
While pressure continues to pile on Mourinho, Saturday’s big win was a big relief for Liverpool coach Klopp who remains unbeaten in five games since joining the side.
More importantly, the win has helped Liverpool climb to seventh spot on the log and the victory should be a motivation going forward.
Manchester United coach Van Gaal should be worried about the team’s goal drought after they failed to score again in a barren draw against Crystal Palace away.
Prior to that Manchester United had been knocked out of the league cup by Middlesbrough on penalties after the game had ended in a barren draw in extra time.
A week before that Manchester United had fought to a barren draw against their noisy neighbors Manchester City.
The latest result has left Manchester United in fourth place on the log after collecting 21 points from 11 games. This is four less than what leaders Manchester City and Arsenal have collected.
Though it is too early to rule Manchester United out of contention for the title, they have a lot of work to do in regard to ending their goal drought. It looks like their failure to score is tied to striker Wayne Rooney’s form.
Rooney has not scored in the last four games. His overall tally is also disappointing as he has only two goals in ten matches.
Arsenal continue to breeze past their opponents and Saturday’s 3-0 spanking of Swansea puts them firmly in contention for the title. But can the gunners go all the way?
Their loyal fans have endured a torrid time but remain the most hopeful fans. One hopes that they will not be disappointed this season.
