Premier League Table: Leeds leapfrog Arsenal with Crystal Palace win
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Leeds produced a commanding performance to beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Monday and move 10th in the Premier League standings ahead of Arsenal.Marcelo Bielsa’s side took the win thanks to goals early in either half from Jack Harrison and Patrick Bamford respectively. Although a team noted for the number of goals they concede, Leeds gave up few chances against a Crystal Palace attack that looked rudderless without the injured Wilfried Zaha.For Palace, defeat means that they remain 13th in the standings, with little danger of being sucked into the relegation battle or being involved in the European fight.Earlier in the weekend, Manchester City had strengthened their grip on first place thanks to an emphatic 4-1 win over Liverpool. Pep Guardiola’s side are now five points clear of Manchester United, who were held to a 3-3 draw against Everton in a remarkable match at Old Trafford.Liverpool, meanwhile, remain fourth in the standings, though 10 points behind City, who also have a game extra to play over all of their nearest rivals, it seems that their title defence is set to end tepidly.Leicester continue to occupy third, while Chelsea are coming up strong in fifth after a fine start to life under former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel. The Blues have now won their last three matches.West Ham and Everton continue to vie for European spots next season, while Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham and Aston Villa are not yet out of contention either.It was a good weekend for Newcastle in the lower half of the table, as they were the only side in that area to pick up a win.Meanwhile, Sheffield United, West Brom and Fulham continue to be cut badly adrift in the bottom three, with the Cottagers eight points shy of 17th-placed Burnley.

Concussion substitutes in the Premier League: What are they and how are they used?
By admin | | 0 Comments |


With the growing long-term fear of concussion over the wellbeing of players, concussion substitutes have been introduced on a trial basis in the Premier League.Aston Villa’s home encounter with Arsenal was the first match to take place after they became part of the laws, but in what competitions can they be used and in which circumstances?What are concussion substitutions? Concussion substitutes have been introduced in a bid to stop clubs taking undue risks with players who have head injuries. There are concerns that footballers have played when concussed, and there are fears for their long-term health as a result.With concussion substitutes available, clubs are given another two potential changes to use over the course of a match if a player is suffering from suspected concussion.It is up to the discretion of club doctors to decide whether a player falls under this category. What is concussion? According to the NHS: “Concussion is a temporary injury to the brain caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head.“It usually only lasts up to a few days or weeks, although it sometimes needs emergency treatment and some people can have longer-lasting problems.“It's important to avoid head injuries as repeated concussions or blows to the head have been linked to serious problems, including a brain condition called chronic traumatic encephalopathy.”What happens when a concussion substitute is made? The process for a concussion substitute to be made is slightly different to the normal substitution procedure. Instead of the usual white form handed to the fourth official, clubs will use a green form, indicating the difference between the types of change.These players are permanently removed from the game.Additionally, it should be noted that if a concussion substitute is made, the opposition are given one additional change.For example, if Arsenal had used one concussion substitute against Aston Villa, the Birmingham side would have been given an additional change to make on top of their usual three.Do clubs have to make a concussion substitute when a player has a head knock? Although clubs are compelled to take players suffering from a head injury off, they do not necessarily have to use one of their concussion substitutes to do this.Why would they not? Simply because it would offer their opponents a chance to use that additional substitute.Let’s use the Aston Villa v Arsenal example again. If a Villa player suffered a suspected concussion after 85 minutes, they would be granted the opportunity to change them. Of course, if they had used their full complement of substitutes, they would have to dip into their concussion change pool, but if they had only used two of their regular changes, the player could be brought off in that manner.By using a regular substitution, Villa would be depriving their opponents of having the luxury of making an additional change.Who was the first to use a concussion substitute? No-one has used a concussion substitution in the Premier League as yet.How long does the concussion substitute trial last? The Premier League will trial these changes until at least the end of the 2020/21 season. It can be extended until the end of the 2021/22 campaign, however.Why are concussion substitutes only in the Premier League? It is important to stress that this is only a trial and not yet a permanent law of the game. The Premier League is the only major competition taking part in this trial, although less celebrated competitions are testing it.One of the reasons that Premier League clubs are doubtless so keen to implement it is because they are one of the few major competitions in which there are only three substitutes permitted this season. .

Premier League Table: Chelsea close in on top four with Spurs win
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Chelsea kept their top-four ambitions burning on Thursday as they overcame Tottenham 1-0 away from home.A penalty from Jorginho was the sole strike in a tight 90 minutes, which saw Thomas Tuchel record his third clean sheet in as many matches as Chelsea manager. The seven points the former Borussia Dortmund and PSG boss has seen his team earn has pulled Chelsea up to sixth in the standings, within four marks of the top four.The Blues are tied on 36 points along with Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton, who have a couple of matches in hand.Meanwhile, it has been a good week for the Manchester City. Manchester City have enhanced their place at the top of the league and are three points clear of Manchester United, who were 9-0 winners over Southampton at Old Trafford on Tuesday.It has not been a good week for Liverpool, however. Their shock 1-0 home loss to Brighton has consigned them to fourth in the table behind Leicester. Trailing Manchester City by seven points and having played a game more, Jurgen Klopp’s men will need an almighty effort if they are to defend the title they so spectacular won last term.Tottenham, too, have suffered a major blow to their Champions League aspirations as their slide continues. Spurs are now seven points off the top four, although Jose Mourinho does at least have the consolation of a game in hand.Over the weekend, the table has the potential to change dramatically once more. Among the most attractive fixtures are Manchester United’s home encounter with Everton, but it is Liverpool’s meeting with Manchester City that clearly grabs top billing.View our detailed player statistics for the Premier League at the link below.
