Loving Dion Dublin’s line here – “the less rope you give a footballer, the better”.
The numbers speak for themselves.
Not sure about an SOS signal to another manager mind.
Only Liverpool and Manchester City have collected more points than Watford since Nigel Pearson rocked up at Vicarage Road.
That run has seen the Hornets go from six points adrift at the bottom of the table to out of the drop zone in the space of six matches.
Anyone would think he had experience constructing a title-winning side or something looking at the below.
- Watford (P5 W4 D1 L0) have now picked up 13 points from the last 15 available in the Premier League, as many as they won across their previous 22 matches in the competition (13 out of a possible 66).
- Watford have scored the opening goal in their last five Premier League games, having done so in just four of their previous 17 matches in the competition this season – indeed, only Liverpool (last 10) are on a longer current such run than the Hornets.
- Pearson (P15 W11 D2 L2) is the first English manager to win at least 11 Premier League matches across a 15-game spell in the competition since Harry Redknapp in January 2012 (also 11).

I wonder where Sergio Aguero keeps all his match balls?
His treble against Aston Villa was his 12th hat-trick, which is a Premier League record.
Might need to get a joiner in to build him a new cabinet soon…

Well what a great weekend of Premier League action eh.
I know Aston Villa were erm, dreadful but how good were Manchester City and Sergio Aguero on Sunday?
Pep Guardiola’s side are hitting all the right notes at the moment.That’s five straight wins for City in all competitions. They could easily have hit six at Old Trafford last week and probably could have got a couple more than the six they did score in the Midlands.
The big question I suppose is can anyone stop Liverpool? Jurgen Klopp’s side have taken 61 points from a possible 63. Almost unbelievable isn’t it?
