Another crazy set of Premier League fixtures is behind us. Perhaps the biggest shock of all came at the Etihad, where Pep Guardiola disappointed the best part of two million Fantasy Prem managers by omitting their chosen captain for the weekend, Sergio Aguero, from the squad that strolled past Bournemouth.
Attentions now turn to a rare midweek fixture list. Upwardly mobile Cardiff travel to east London to face a West Ham team buoyed by an excellent victory away at Newcastle, who have to visit an Everton side desperate to take their Merseyside derby frustrations out on whoever appears in front of them. Leaders Manchester City go to Watford, where they haven’t lost since 1989 and scored 11 over their last two league visits. Both Brighton and Crystal Palace won at the weekend – the ideal build-up to their traditionally bitter clash at the Amex on Tuesday night.
