Round 13: Press Cuttings

Press cuttings, that might (or might not!) help you predict the next round of matches.

“Bournemouth had struck the woodwork more times (13) than any other team in the Premier League so far this season ahead of their clash with Arsenal on Sunday, who, incidentally, are second in the woodwork smacking table with eight strikes.” – SPAGames

“Sunderland last won three consecutive league games three seasons and three managers ago, on the run-in of the 2013-14 campaign, when wins over Chelsea, Cardiff City, Manchester United and then West Brom helped them pull off the mother of all escape acts.” – Guardian Sport

“…Palace lost their sixth successive league game… [they] have conceded 26 [goals] in 13 games this season, and 17 in their past five matches. Palace have not kept a clean sheet in the top flight since mid-April.”” – Guardian Sport after they lost ridiculously 5-4 to Swansea at the weekend

“…[Tottenham] have won once in 10 games in all competitions” – Guardian Sport after throwing away a 1-0 half-time lead away to Chelsea

“Liverpool’s manager labelled Sunderland the most defensive side he had ever seen after Saturday’s hard-fought 2-0 win at Anfield, when late goals by Divock Origi and James Milner secured a sixth home win in seven games.” – Guardian Sport

“Arsenal had last won a November league fixture in 2014 and they came into this game on the back of three rather underwhelming draws in succession.” – Guardian Sport after Arsenal saw off Bournemouth 3-1 at The Emirates

“…[it was] only the second time that Walcott had scored with his head in the Premier League.” – Guardian Sport after Walcott scored against Bournemouth
