• A phenomenal fact about Wenger’s influence at Arsenal: The match against Bournemouth in early March was the first time in 37 years that the Gunners had not started a player who had ever played under Arsene. This has not happened since January 22, 1986! A grandiose series was cut short by Granit Xhaka, who remained in the reserve.
Arsenal play against Palace without the sacked Vieira. Another step towards the championship?
• Would you like more about lineups? Losing 0-1 to Bournemouth, Liverpool received their first defeat in the Premier League with a defensive combination of Trent – Konate – Van Dijk – Robertson. Two more were in the Champions League – both from Real Madrid.
• For Brentford goalkeeper David Raja, playing in the Premier League is a dream come true. He even got his debut date tattooed on his neck.
• Brighton winger Solly March scored in the 15th minute against Crystal Palace. They played on March 15, and March – in English, just March. Well, it’s just beautiful. And yes, in what form Sulli is already 7 goals.
• Interesting: Antonio Conte was nominated for the Best Coach of February award. The Italian was in touch with his staff, but was only present on the bench in the game with Leicester – that day Tottenham lost 1:4. Three Premier League victories were taken by Spurs with Antonio’s assistant Christian Stellini.
• And since we touched on this topic.
José Mourinho has won the Premier League Manager of the Year award three times. But he was very infuriated that in two of the three championship seasons (2005/06 and 2014/15) he did not receive the coach of the month award during the championship. In total, he has 4 such prizes, which is really not enough for such a titled and important character. Is not it so?
