Daniel Farke has understood how to get a clean sheet. How dare they? Coming away with a clean sheet in a Premier League game! The Soccer Saturday panel does not take much to confuse, but where did that come from?
Manchester United were not inspiring against Liverpool, but I said they would regard it like a win if they came away with a point, which they did. Their team is so vulnerable, but can I convince myself that Norwich could beat another Manchester club? I don't think I can.
What are we going to get? Will Arsenal see 70 per cent of the ball and fail to register a shot on target? Will it be a repeat of the Wilfried Zaha show like this game last year?
Unai Emery has come under scrutiny from some supporters and they are starting to ask questions. Why have they paid the money for Kieran Tierney and are not playing him, despite getting him fit? Why are you not playing Hector Bellerin when fit? I do not understand why he gets these players fit and he doesn't play them.
Bernd Leno makes some mistakes and is young, but he is left completely and utterly isolated by the lack of a defensive partnership. I feel sorry for him. David Luiz and Sokratis Papastathopoulos high five each other when they give corners away. Matteo Guendouzi has good energy and covers the ground well, but he is too young to understand the protective role and needs someone in beside him to pivot him and look after him.
These players have a soft belly but they are supposed to provoke and win the little scraps. I would be more interested in Lucas Torreira beside Guendouzi or even Ainsley Maitland-Niles could do it with his speed.
In attack, Nicolas Pepe needs a shake. He is very talented but he needs to want the ball and get on the ball. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is scoring goals in an ordinary team and Alexandre Lacazette must start. I like Bukayo Saka but you need to feed him in at the right time.
Ceballos needs to be in behind the front three. If you dominate games which you should do against Palace, the middle two and full-backs will be higher up. Emery wanted to emulate Liverpool's style of play, and when those two full-backs are high, you know there is trouble coming. Bellerin and Tierney must play higher when they play and that is when the two holding players come in handy and that is how the balance works.
Zaha will be putting himself on the market again with Arsenal trying to buy him in the summer, while Andros Townsend will have a go being ex-Tottenham. Gary Cahill has been good since coming in for Palace, but Arsenal should have too much.
This is a decent game between two teams with good energy when they are at it. We have been complementing West Ham - Manuel Pellegrini has been clever - but they went to Everton and everyone to a man was poor. Sheffield United, as we saw against Arsenal, are very good in their shape and in energy and togetherness. They are always at you, with four or five runners too. They have no real star qualities as individuals, but everybody buys into Chris Wilder's plan - it is raw honesty and desire that gets them there. The Blades don't score many, though, and I think West Ham will be angry after last week.
Everton just about got through it last week against West Ham. Marco Silva picked a team that had to win that football match. From the fans' point of view, he would have been out of the door with a loss.
When you go to places like Brighton, it can be tricky. With Brighton again, I am not sure what they want to be. They battered Tottenham and possess some really good qualities. The areas to exploit Everton are with width, but Brighton do not have that in abundance, so it will be a pleasant point for both in the end.
There is always a little game where Bournemouth pop up and win. They convince you at times, but they can go into a lull too. They get three or four good results followed by the same set of bad results.
So, how do Bournemouth change that? Eddie Howe can change the style, but does he have or need a plan B and C? His plan A is that they are good at attacking. If they attack well they will score goals, but they know they will concede goals too.
Watford have been playing better than what their results suggest. They should have won at Tottenham last weekend. It looks as though they have got energy back in Abdoulaye Doucoure and Gerard Deulofeu, and for that reason I think they will get over the line.
I like Aston Villa going forward, but there is no doubt in my head that they have issues in the full-back positions.
Dean Smith is attack-minded - they went to Arsenal and should have got something. But he will know the situation ahead of him here, but what does he do?
Raheem Sterling is hot again, Gabriel Jesus is firing and David Silva is back to his best while, Kevin De Bruyne is superb. Pep Guardiola got angry with them at a similar time last season and they kicked on big style. They made a couple of points on Liverpool last week, but people were writing them off a couple of weeks ago. Manchester City will take care of themselves - there are goals in every department. It is a free swing for Villa but one that could land them in some trouble.
This is a cracking game. Tottenham bounced back in the Champions League, getting a lot of anger out of their system. The way he keeps talking it is as if Mauricio Pochettino has a back-up plan in the form of Manchester United or Real Madrid, who supposedly want him.
He knows he gets on with the owner. The players want to take him for dinner too, it could be a drive-through! Toby Alderweireld was rested, so where does that leave him? They now go on to Liverpool. Does he not play because he is running his current contract down?
Tottenham managed to salvage a point against Watford and could have some confidence going into Anfield after their win through the week. Although, I do not see past a Liverpool win and they will continue to roll along with Mohamed Salah back in the side, who scored in the week against Genk.
