On this day, the Friday after Thanksgiving, I engaged in zero shopping, but rather into digesting, thus explaining this late post. Arsenal held a while against Liverpool, but could have benefited of more stringent decisions by the match official, as Mane engaged into foul play (pun intended, even though I only eat ham at Thanksgiving, as I rarely eat birds except at the embryonic state as eggs) and could have easily received up to 3 yellow cards had he been named Granit Xhaka, getting only one for his efforts. Once the first goal was scored, Arsenal unwisely tried to attack using a bravado style, opening up for 3 easy goals. I am not surprised that Arteta wishes to have our legendary AW back, as a big worry for Arsenal is how their passing has become predictable, ponderous, and imprecise. Leicester tried hard but lost 0-3 to Chelsea. Aston Villa left it late to win by 2-0 against Brighton for Steven Gerrard's first win in the Premier League. Burnley versus Crystal Palace and Newcastle versus Brentford both ended 3-3, with the home teams getting late equalizers. Norwich won late by 2-1 at home against Southampton, for Dean Smith's first win with his new side. Watford beat Manchester United 4-1 prompting the sacking of the Manchester United manager, to the dismay of many opposing fans, except for the last side beaten by Manchester United in the Premier League; who could that be? Wolverhampton beat West Ham 1-0, thus interrupting a series of impressive results for the Hammers. Manchester City beat Everton 3-0 in a rather soporific game; I find their style of play so boringly hypnotizing that I end up getting an involuntary nap every time I have to watch them. My suggestion for NBC is to always put them on Peacock unless they are playing Arsenal, Chelsea, or Liverpool. Finally, the noisy neighbors left it late to beat Leeds 2-1 after initially falling behind, in another sleep inducing fixture bar the few attacking forays by some of the Leeds players. Overall, the 8 participants combined for 62 points (or 7 and 3/4 each) and we had a grand total of 5 correct IKTS predictions.
