article A lot of footballers have been watching the Premier Leagues games in the dark as the season gets underway.
The Premier League have moved the start of the season to the weekend as a result, which has meant players and managers are going about their business in the hope of saving some money.
The problem is that the Premier league can’t always guarantee players and clubs the most up-to-date fixture list, with the league having a number of matches played in a given week.
In fact, Premier League clubs have a number that are known to fluctuate depending on how many games are played.
But, with a lot of the Premier leagues games played in the same time period, it’s not uncommon for players and teams to be stuck playing in the shadow of the match day action.
We’ve got some Premier League managers and players who are using some of the money from the Premier leagues fixtures to make a real difference.
Here’s what the Premier and Championship leagues managers are spending this season to help keep their teams competitive.
West Ham United West Ham have been one of the most consistent teams in the Premier Ligue 1, having won their last nine matches.
However, after a 3-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday, the Hammers boss, Sam Allardyce, admitted the club needed to improve on that.
“It’s always difficult to score in that game and I’m not going to lie, we conceded a goal that was probably the most important one,” Allardycer said.
“That was a good goal.
I don’t think we’ve scored in the league in the last 10 days, so that’s something we have to improve.”
Chelsea Chelsea’s Premier League fixtures this season have included two of the toughest games of the year so far, as they face Arsenal at Stamford Bridge and Swansea City in the FA Cup at the weekend.
The draw between the two sides has seen both teams play at home and the draw between Chelsea and Tottenham has seen the two teams face each other on the road.
The FA Cup is normally a good way for Chelsea to break the run of bad results, but it hasn’t been quite the case for them this season.
Chelsea had a 4-0 loss at Swansea last weekend, a 1-0 win over Arsenal on Wednesday, and a 2-0 victory over Swansea on Saturday.
The Blues also lost 3-1 to Southampton in the second round of the FA cup, and 4-1 at home to Manchester City in their last match.
Liverpool Liverpool are one of only two teams in England to have scored 20 or more goals in a season, and they are only one of three teams in Premier League history to have won 20 or fewer league games in a single season.
Liverpool have scored 10 goals this season, which is more than any other team in the top flight, but they have scored only three of those 20 goals.
“We have to take the positives and try to put our best foot forward in this league,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said after Saturday’s defeat at West Ham.
“The results are not always the best.
But we’ve got to put those things in perspective and try not to lose sight of that.”
Aston Villa Aston Villa are currently one of seven teams in English football that have won at least eight matches this season and one of six teams in Europe’s top flight.
Villa have won six of their last seven matches, and have already beaten Tottenham and Chelsea.
Villa are also unbeaten in their five games against top flight sides.
Swansea Swansea’s last match of the Championship season saw them defeat Birmingham 2-1, with goalkeeper Joe Ledley providing a superb save.
Swansea are unbeaten in six matches in the Championship, and their only defeat of the campaign was against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.
West Bromwich Albion West Brom are currently bottom of the table, having lost their last three games, but West Brom have not conceded a Premier League goal.
West Bloomfield Albion have also been unable to score a goal in their first six games of this season as they sit fourth in the table.
Manchester City City’s Premier league fixtures this year have included a trip to Manchester United, who beat West Brom 1-1 in the Capital One Cup last weekend in what was the third round of a double round robin tie.
Manchester United have been a poor defensive side this season with a record of just six clean sheets in 11 matches.
West Milestone City’s home game against Swansea on Friday night has seen some players and fans take a risk on their careers.
West Midlands midfielder Tom Cleverley suffered a hamstring injury while playing for West Ham, while left back Ben Foster is also on the sidelines with a knee injury.
City have not won away from home this season but are unbeaten on the bounce.
Liverpool FC Liverpool have been without a victory in their past eight Premier League games and
