Guess what? Southampton are still top of the Premier League table two days running as Everton miss their chance suffering from defeat to Manchester United.
The craziness of 2020 plagues the Premier League with nothing looking like what we would consider as normal. The Saint march on at the summit of the standings while Everton gets knocked out of the top four for the first time this season.
The other plague, one that is spoiling the game we love, VAR! What is it here for? Because it certainly is not doing its job, getting decisions wrong more often than not. Offsides are starting to confuse players, pundits, and fans with decades of experience in the game.
