What’s happened to Manchester City this season? I’m sure most of you would agree with me when I say it’s been a poor start to the season for them. I am open to arguments from people who say they are only 2 points off top spot – it’s not like they’re out of the title race – but 22 points from 10 games so far is generally a poor start compared with the standards they will have set themselves in my opinion, and you’ve got to factor in that they are still yet to play Chelsea, Man United, Tottenham and Everton. They are already out of the Carling Cup and it’s been an even worse start for them in the Champions League, there’s no disputing that, collecting just 1 point from two matches against Ajax where only maximum points would have really sufficed. They are now bottom of their group. It’s been a bad all round start for them, and here are my thoughts on what might have caused it.

Lets’ take a look at which teams could potentially get relegated from the Premier League this season because I think it’ll be one of the battles that could go down to the last match of the season. So far, I wouldn’t say there is an obvious team who will definitely go down, like Derby a few years ago, or Sunderland before that. It’s all relatively tight and a lot can change, considering we’re only a quarter of the way into the season. I would say there are six teams who will have relegation worries come May and for the moment, I’m going to assume several teams above them – Sunderland, Stoke, Swansea, West Ham and West Brom – to be safe unless they have a terrible injury crisis in the second half of the season and lose a run of games.

On Friday, I published an article saying mine, and a couple of people’s predictions for the Premiership matches this weekend to see who’s were the most accurate. Surprisingly, apart from Manchester United, none of the teams in the top half of the table won this weekend, which goes against most of our predictions, so we might not see as many points as we usually get. Let’s have a look at the games…
Man United 2-1 Arsenal

There are some decisive-looking games on this weekend… Manchester United look to go top of the table when they play rivals Arsenal, Chelsea travel to South Wales, Defoe will be hoping for a repeat of his previous record-breaking goalscoring performance against Wigan, Man City can’t afford any slip-ups at West Ham, QPR battle it out at the bottom with Reading and Liverpool and Newcastle seemingly must win if they want to stay in contention for a Europa League place. Plenty to look forward to then, as Saturday approaches…

Chelsea have complained to the Premier League about the conduct of referee Mark Clattenburg following their 2-3 defeat to Manchester United yesterday. Chelsea have alleged that Clattenburg used ‘inappropriate language’ to two of their players, with Jon Obi Mikel believed to be one of them. Part of Chelsea’s complaint includes an allegation that Clattenburg used “racial language”.
One newspaper alleges that he used the phrase ‘Spanish t**t’ to one of Chelsea’s players (it’s unclear if it was aimed at Torres or Juan Mata). Clattenburg has been stood down as a referee by the governing body of referees, the Professional Game Match Officials, while an investigation into these allegations takes place.
