Premier League 2017/18 - 5 Talking Points from Gameweek 11
Jubilant Manchester City, woeful Henrikh Mkhitaryan and other things we learned from the Premier League's recent round of games
Manchester City are too hot to handle. After a scintillating pounding of Arsenal, which was followed by Chelsea's narrow win over Manchester City, City now find themselves sitting atop the league standings with an eight-point cushion over rivals United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Elsewhere, David Unsworth proved his mettle as Everton came back from two goals down to beat Watford while Slaven Bilic may have been in charge for his final game as West Ham boss as his side lost yet another game this season.
Here are the 5 most significant talking points from all the action this past weekend:
#5 Burnley look on course to secure European qualification for next season
Sean Dyche and Burnley have been one of the neutrals' favourites of the seasons. Since their opening day win over the defending champions at Stamford Bridge, the Clarets have not looked back.
All credit must go to Dyche, who has drilled his side in such a way that despite being sound defensively, they have enough to go out and grab the all-important goal that wins you the game. Burnley are no Manchester United, so their fans do not mind this brand of football. And why should they?
Nobody expected Burnley to be in the position they find themselves now, and their fans now dare to dream about of the possibility of playing in next season's Europa League. The Clarets have performed against the bigger sides as well this term, and if they continue their run of form, they are likely to play in Europe in the 2018/19 campaign
