A manager is sacked, a fixture has been postponed, and Liverpool are in shambles. This is the Premier League at its entertaining best.
Thomas Tuchel is the 2nd manager to leave his post in the Premier League this season after a midweek Champions League loss. At the same time, Liverpool extended their dismal run of 2 wins in their opening 7 matches.
Will the top teams continue to putter along, or will they finally kick into gear and get their thumbs out of their ***es?
Let’s find out below.

POTTER TO TAKE CHELSEA MANAGER POSITION
Chelsea’s new ownership have acted swiftly and with a heavy hand, removing Thomas Tuchel from the manager position at Chelsea and signing up Brighton’s Graham Potter within 2 days.
Potter has been noted as one of the up-and-coming managers in the Premier League for the last few seasons, and I believe Chelsea will see an almost instant boost in their performances, at least defensively.
BRIGHTON V CRYSTAL PALACE POSTPONED
We have our first postponement of the season! No, it’s not due to Covid. You can blame planned industrial action on the rail network that fans would otherwise use to attend the match. This is a Gameweek 8 match, so you have an extra week to sort your team out and decide if any of your Brighton or Crystal Palace players need to go.

POPE THE NEW GO-TO GOALKEEPER
One of the popular transfers we might see due to the above match being postponed is Robert Sanchez, the Brighton goalkeeper being shipped out (due to him missing Gameweek 8) for English shot-stopper Nick Pope.
Pope recorded an incredible 12 points last week and has looked assured behind Eddie Howe’s new look Newcastle defensive line.
JORDAN PICKFORD INJURY
Continuing the theme of goalkeepers this week is an injury to English International Jordan Pickford. Pickford is expected to miss approximately 3-4 weeks with a thigh injury so definitely don’t go trading Sanchez for Pickford any time soon.
FOFANA PROVIDES GREAT VALUE
Wesley Fofana completed a transfer to Chelsea last week for a modest £70m transfer fee. He slotted straight into the Chelsea lineup last week and is expected to start under new manager Graham Potter.
Fofana’s current price of £4.4m is a value machine, and you should definitely consider transferring him into your team.
DIEGO COSTA IS BACK
This one is for the fans who have been watching Premier League for 4-5 years. Chelsea’s ex-striker Diego Costa looks set to return to the Premier League! This time for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
For those who haven’t seen Diego Costa play before, imagine a highly-skilled, Spanish version of Aleksander Mitrovic. Although he has aged since his prime years, seeing the Spanish forward back in the Premier League is great. He is sure to deliver some excitement.
