Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Guardian - 4 timer 48 minutter siden

Buendía the architect of City’s bad day, Arsenal were woeful in defence and Maguire deserved better from Leicester fans

The way in which Norwich turned a negative into a positive was quite something. With nigh-on a full team of players out injured, the odds of stopping Manchester City looked insurmountable. Instead Daniel Farke’s men gave their best performance of the season by far, not only cutting the champions open but looking solid at the back for the first time. There was kudos for the debutants in defence, Sam Byram and Ibrahim Amadou, but also for more seasoned Norwich players. Emi Buendía and Marco Stiepermann were central to a buccaneering style in the Championship yet had struggled to bring that form to the top flight. With the gauntlet down, however, they delivered. Buendía contributed two assists and regularly sprung the City press. Stiepermann sparked several counter attacks and crucially reestablished his understanding with Teemu Pukki. Paul MacInnes

Rejuvenated Kieran Trippier making a quick impression at Atlético Madrid

Guardian - lør, 14/09/2019 - 23:30

The former Spurs right-back hinted he was unwanted at his old club, but is making the most of a fresh start in Spain

A few months ago, Kieran Trippier was mingling in the stands of the Wanda Metropolitano. It was the end of the Champions League final and Liverpool had claimed the trophy, but Trippier seemed reluctant to leave the field, lingering at the side of the pitch and commiserating with stricken Spurs fans. It was, many observers felt, his way of saying goodbye.

On Wednesday the Champions League anthem will be playing at the Metropolitano once more and Trippier will be there again. It turned out that the 28-year-old was performing some kind of farewell, although recently the course of events that led him to become an Atlético player have come up for debate. One thing is for sure, though: despite the short period Trippier has been in Spain, he has already made an impression.
