Bailey’s Bullet Points

Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey looks back on the weekend’s footballing action and brings you his ‘Bullet points’….

  • UNITED HAVE TO STICK WITH JOSE
    Jose Mourinho’s players have been letting him down all season, that was only highlighted by their come from behind victory against Newcastle – the players are good enough, but their performances have been woeful. The board should remember just what Mourinho has to offer.
  • CHERRIES ARE PICK OF THE BUNCH
    Amazing performance from Bournemouth at Watford, and the fact only Manchester City have scored more speaks volumes – Eddie Howe deserves all the plaudits he is getting.
  • WOLVES ROARING UP THE LEAGUE
    Great performance from Wolves to be on 15-points already, but didn’t we expect this? Possibly we did but you still can’t take anything away from Nuno and the job he did.
  • LUCKY LIVERPOOL
    Liverpool held Man City to a draw, and it was that way round. The last week or so and Liverpool have really dropped off in terms of performance and they needed a missed penalty from Riyad Mahrez to gift them the point. But sometimes you do need that little bit of luck, and that is what Liverpool got.
  • GOAL OF THE WEEKEND
    Gylfi Sigurdsson strike at Leicester was top class. A Cruyff turn to take him away from James Maddison before curling the ball into the top-corner – amazing stuff from the Icelander, who looks to be getting back to his best.
  • PLAYERS OF THE WEEKEND
    A lot of candidates but my players of the weekend would be….
    GOALKEEPER – RUI PATRICIO – The Wolves goalkeeper arrived with the tag of world class and that is what he showed at Crystal Palace with a brilliant display.
    DEFENDER – CHRISTOPHER SCHINDLER – Brilliant header to equalise before taking a an elbow later in the game for his troubles, but he played really well.
    MIDFIELDER –  DAVID BROOKS – The Welsh wizard is someone I am a huge fan of, I thought the deal taking him to Bournemouth was a great one and it is turning out to be that way, he was sensational at Watford.
    FORWARD – GLENN MURRAY – The veteran forward keeps delivering and he tucked away the winner against West Ham with a clinical finish from close range.
