Premier League relegation overview
After 10 matches played in the Premier League, teams start to separate. The fight for the domestic title, European berth spots and to avoid relegation is becoming clearer in the top-flight. Eight teams are concerned with Premier League relegation odds including two from London (West Ham and Fulham).
Winless and already dead?
Newcastle and Huddersfield are two winless teams after ten games and lost seven of them. They only have three points. The Magpies, a historic English club, are still looking for their first win this season under coach Rafael Benitez.
The former team of English legend Alan Shearer tries has not found yet the solution to win. They cannot hold a positive result. A couple weeks ago they led 2-0 at Manchester United before losing in the added-me 3-2. They will to turn it around fairly quickly otherwise the Spaniard coach will be sacked and the club in serious danger of relegation.
Huddersfield share the same number of points as Newcastle and look as well to rebound before it is too late in the very competitive top-level English league.
Cash flow but no results
Fulham and Cardiff City only won one game this season and tied two others. They have the same number of losses (7) as the two bottom teams of the table. Cardiff City exploded at Anfield against the leaders 4-1.
For Fulham and after a summer of signing new players, the situation is below expectations. Coach Jokanovic reacts on the loss:
“First of all, we are disappointed after this kind of defeat. My team tried to follow the plan, tried to be organized defensively and waited for their chance. We started well, but we made one costly mistake and they punished us from the penalty spot.
In our best moment, where we started to play better and started to become a little bit more dangerous, we made another mistake and they made it complicated for us. After the sending off, we weren’t available to comeback.
The Premier League is a different level. I missed a little bit of power, speed and solidarity. It’s the highest level of football in this country and these mistakes are costly – we concede too many easy goals.
We must work hard to find a way to fix all of our problems and try and eliminate individual mistakes.
The Premier League isn’t just a tough league for us, it’s difficult for many other teams as well. We all know we have to braver and more organized in order to win the games ahead of us.
Southampton and Crystal Palace follow with seven points in ten games whereas Burnley and West Ham have eight points respectively. There is a five-point gap to the team above Leicester. The former champions have won 40% of their games and seem to have thier season under control thus far.
