Top two clash and Pellegrini under pressure – 5 Premier League talking points

8 November 2019

The Premier League continues this weekend before proceedings are paused to accommodate the last international break of 2019.

The weekend’s headline fixture is a box-office clash between the league’s top two clubs – Liverpool and Manchester City.

Here, PA News Agency looks at the major talking points ahead of a busy weekend of football.

Pellegrini at a pinch point

Manuel Pellegrini’s job could hang in the balance as his West Ham squad travel to Burnley in an attempt to claim their first victory since September. The Hammer’s last six games have failed to return a win, with their shock 2-0 victory over Manchester United the last time the club tasted success. They now sit 13th in the table and Pellegrini is surely reliant on a credible performance to remain in his role. Rivals Burnley are suffering a similar spell of poor form and could be Pellegrini’s best chance of grasping a victory for some time, with testing fixtures against both Tottenham and Chelsea looming.
