Premier League

5 lessons from Manchester United and Chelsea's matches this weekend for both fans and clubs in EPL

When Brentford welcomed Chelsea in a premier league fixture on Saturday 16th October, many expected Brentford to give their visitors a tough test but not to the extent we witnessed on Saturday. On the other hand Manchester United was expected to continue their good away form against Leicester City but the opposite was the case at the King power stadium.

The two matches was filled of lessons for both clubs and supporters of various premier league clubs. Five of those lessons we can learn from the two matches include;

1. The so called smaller premier league teams have what it take to upset the big teams. Although Chelsea was able to over come the Brentford challenge, Manchester United could not stand the pressure from Leicester City.

2. It takes persistence to win a premier league game irrespective of whether you are a big team or a small team. Chelsea proved that against Brentford.

3. Manager is a factor in the Premier league. Many blamed Manchester United defeat at the King Power stadium on the inefficiency of the club manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer while Chelsea's victory against Brentford has been attributed to the coach's technical abilities.

4. A good team of average players is better than a bad team of high quality players. Brentford had no world class player against Chelsea but they played well while Manchester United that had numerous world class players was awful against Leicester.

5. No single player can win a match. Football is a team sport and the team performs better when players are contributing their best. Manchester United over dependent on Ronaldo for goals was part of their problems against Leicester City. Chelsea's winning goal was scored by a defender, showing that anybody in the team can contribute goals for the victory of their team.

In general term, the two matches analyzed above showed why English Premier League remains the best football league in the world. The unpredictability of the outcomes of matches make lovers of football want to watch them week in week out.
