We need to talk about Burnley. Dycheball is having a crisis. There have been crises before during the club’s long stay in the Premier League but losing every single game in 2020 is not a good portent for a new decade. They have also scored just one goal since Christmas, and that came in a defeat to Aston Villa. It has them plunging down the table, and if Eddie Howe and Bournemouth are in trouble so is another manager who embodies his unfashionable club.
Let’s also talk of Leicester, for whom any chance of a title challenge relies on a Devon Loch scenario unmatched in human history. Liverpool have got this, but second place is very much within the grasp of Brendan Rodgers’ team, what with Manchester City looking at the end of their cycle and dodgy of defence. A victory at Turf Moor would take Leicester level on points with Pep Guardiola, who has taken to admitting his team is playing for second. There has been something of a stall, after last week’s defeat to Southampton and being held at home by Aston Villa in the first leg of the League Cup.
