Premier League: 10 points from the action of the weekend | Soccer

1) Emery's tactical flexibility supports the display of diamonds

Although Arsenal's time was a few troubled times, Sven Mislintat's imminent exit had left a huge hole in his recruitment department, but the win against Chelsea was a memory In the first season of Unai Emery, there were many positive results. The Spaniard had to contend with an unbalanced squad, but has shown he can make important tactical interventions on several occasions. Undoubtedly, Maurizio Sarri prevailed. He disturbed the Chelsea manager's attempts to build from behind with an energetic high-pressure press, and his move to a midfield diamond showed that Arsenal has become more flexible since joining Arsène Wenger. Emery's side played from the beginning with pressure and bite, with the sound of Lucas Torreira waspish performance and the impressive Aaron Ramsey was set. Jacob Steinberg

2) Salah's theatrics shine with his latest performance

"Exceptional performance of a world-class player," said Jürgen Klopp's verdict on Mohamed Salah, who reached the milestone of 50 Premier League goals. The Egyptian international beat half a century in 72 games. Only the mature strikers Ruud van Nistelrooy, Alan Shearer and Andy Cole made it in fewer games. "Maybe he would have scored more and earlier if I had not played him on the right wing that often," Klopp added. "My mistake". The anticipation, awareness and improvisation of the striker brought the reward, but less appetizing was his theatrical attempt to win under the pressure of Mamadou Sakho a penalty for the first half. Salah was offended by Luka Milivojevic's angry response to the coup, but had no leg to stand on. Theoretically and literally. The disadvantage of Salah's reputation was self-inflicted. Andy Hunter

3) Mahrez's neglect is a sign of the strength of City.

"Tactical" was Pep Guardiola's explanation when asked about Riyad Mahrez, Manchester City's record signing for Huddersfield Town. Others find it astonishing that the 60-million-man retired from the squad and in the previous two Premier League games against Wolves or Liverpool was an unused substitute. For Mahrez, who was bought by Leicester, this must clearly be a concern. But most of all, it's a reminder of City's immense resources and not everything the player did wrong. And there is no guarantee, as Kevin De Bruyne is fit again, Leroy Sané and Raheem Sterling on the wings, and the two Silvas, David and Bernardo, also bearing in mind that it was just a one-off.

4) Fulham reversed due to unfortunate defenses

Fulham scored the first goal in a row for the third consecutive game, but all three games ended in defeat. That their defense is unfortunate is one of the main messages of the bleeding that is obvious. It was in painful evidence during one of her best-organized performances since her promotion and what should have been one of her better results; This was the waste of a golden chance to take down a tired, diminished Tottenham. Tim Ream's uncontrolled swinging in the fresh air offered Dele Alli a chance to equalize when it seemed like a frustrated visit could be kept in check. Then Joe Bryan lost Harry Winks for the winner of stoppage time. Claudio Ranieri is the one who refined his leadership skills in Serie A of the 1990s. He leans on the leads, but has not the conditions that this is possible with Fulham. John Brewin

5) Jota stylishly emerges from the shadows

Diogo Jota became the first Wolves player since John Richards to make a hat-trick in 1977, but it was his all-round game against Raúl Jiménez that brought his reward against Leicester. Jota is perhaps the club's undisclosed Portuguese contingent in the shadow of midfielders Rúben Neves and João Moutinho, but undoubtedly plays an important role in helping the wolves. After a successful debut season in England, Jota had difficulty reproducing this form so far. However, there is evidence that the talented striker, who turned 22 in December, has much more to offer. "The preseason was not the best for many reasons," said Jota. "I had a problem feeling good on the field, and [did not] felt fast and fast. Now is a good moment. I am able to do what I always want to do. " Ben Fisher

6) Hughton sees positive defeats

With 15 remaining games, Chris Hughtons Brighton is seven points ahead of the drop zone. The next three league tours are all profitable, as the manager ensures the safety of another season. "I think if you asked me at this point whether I would be happy about two positive performances against United and Liverpool and seven points, then I would say yes," he said. "But the pressure is always to get the points when you need them. The nice part is that we lost 1-0 to Liverpool, who beat Old United in a 2-1 win at Old Trafford and are in really good form. We now go into a series of games [against Fulham, Watford and Burnley] in which the pressure is put on us to make sure that we get points from these points. "Given the discomfort that Brighton will play with, it would be a surprise if they did not retain their games. Top-status Jamie Jackson

7) Silva fights for victory

Everton's success Seventh, but even though he is only three points away from his Valhalla, he is far from the best. Marco Silva's team underwent a rigorous review following an investment summer that failed to achieve stable defense and regular goals. This defeat means they have won Premier League games once in a row this season. A win over Bournemouth gives hope to fans, but their defeat at Southampton proved once again that they are unable to do two good things in a row. If you do not recover, that does not help. James Ward-Prowsow's opening game was the 10th time this season that Everton conceded first and they only received two points from these games, a sign of their inability to fight back, a problem management and no money to be resolved soon got to.

8) Schär shines as Ashley looks

The last time Newcastle Cardiff defeated Tyneside 3-0 in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjær's team were knocked out and home boss Alan Pardew has been so abused by fans he has been cowering throughout his digging. On Saturday, the owner of Newcastle Mike Ashley showed the target of hostile chants, but he just smiled as the floor repeated, "Get up if you hate Ashley." Rafael Benítez player. Instead, Fabian Schär showed that he is a midfielder, with technical advantages and midfielder Sean Longstaff shone. "The players, especially the foreign players, did not bother [about the possible takeover]," said the Newcastle manager. Louise Taylor

9) Carroll's Future Seems Unclear

Andy Carroll's stunning Miss against Bournemouth sparked ridicule, though on a certain level, one can forgive compassion for a player in desperate need of something. Saturday's game was only the League's 61st start since it came to West Ham permanently five and a half years ago, and while the strange sight of the smart raiding game and the air he can offer seems to be unclear. Carroll is now 30 years old and the chances of things getting a lot better are being reduced. Assuming that Marko Arnautovic goes there, he will certainly remain in Manuel Pellegrini's squad until the end of the season, even if a regular starting position seems unthinkable. Carroll has no contract in June, and it's hard to see who would put him on as an option today to count at the top level. Nick Ames

10) Gracia has given Hornets an identity

Javi Gracia is not a man prone to exaggerations. The Watford manager today celebrated the first anniversary of his appointment and has every reason to be proud of his efforts since replacing Marco Silva. Although Watford did not pass Burnley on Saturday, Watford has established a strong identity among the Spaniards and now looks seventh. The reward could be the Europa League, and their team could be better suited to handle the extra workload than the men of Sean Dyche. They did not reach the group stage last August and lost in the play-off round. "I am very satisfied, but not only for myself," Gracia reflected on his first year as manager. "When I arrived, it was because the owners trusted me, and after a year I can say that they are satisfied with our work and our position." Ed Aaron's
