The Manchester paradox in the Premier League



Troubling a poor and pathetic Manchester United throughout the match, Wolverhampton took the game to their opponents to come out with a very well deserved point with a 1-1 draw.

"I think that a team without a Brazilian isn't a team", Mourinho said.

United have earmarked Neves as a target and could make an official bid in January should fellow suitors Manchester City register a formal interest. "They did. That attitude made a difference". Playing in a midfield role behind Liverpool's illustrious front three his work down the left flank produced an own goal from Wesley Hoedt, and a quality free-kick resulted in Mohamed Salah's goal.

When asked if he thinks Liverpool are good enough to win the title, Moyes' response was a blunt: "No, I don't think so".

"Liverpool is the kind of game where you want to shine, so we will I hope". Emery can take credit for that, and this Arsenal side look capable of winning the Europa League, a competition he won three years in a row in charge of Seville. Record signing Riyad Mahrez added his first two for City after the break.
