Merson's former Arsenal and England teammate Ian Wright, however, still believes City can have a "great season", if they win their first Champions League crown.

However, it's time to look back to January's league action as the first Premier League Player of the Month for 2020 has been announced!

Leicester have dropped eight points from winning positions in their last four league outings, more than they had in their previous 59 matches since the start of the 2018-19 campaign (six).

The win saw Liverpool extend their advantage at the top of the Premier League to 22 points over second-placed Manchester City, and Henderson now appears destined to be the skipper who finally lifts the Premier League trophy for the Reds.


He finished his career with a Champions League title, two FA Cup wins, three League Cups and only the Premier League evaded him - something the current side will change this season as they dominate the rest of the division.

The consolation strike came on Samatta's league debut, making the Tanzanian attacker Villa's first first player to score on his league bow since Rudy Gestede scored against Bournemouth in August 2015.

Their run would begin with defeat at Manchester City in 2004, a Nicolas Anelka penalty condemning the club to the only loss during their drought-breaking title success of 2004/05.

This weekend the Reds, now on 73 points, moved even further clear of Manchester City, who lie second on 51 points after Sunday's defeat to Tottenham.


This time it's a Premier League record.

Mansour and the Abu Dhabi United Group bought City in 2008 and they have overseen an incredible rise in fortunes at the Etihad Stadium, spending a lot of money on transfers.

Wright said on the BBC: "You feel if they don't win the Champions League, then it's not a good season".

Man United won the title on April 14 in 2001.
