The grim prospect of relegation seems increasingly likely after Villa's 3-2 home loss to Watford on Saturday. What a joyless, miserable campaign this has become. There's barely a result or performance for supporters to cheer, just defeat after defeat to digest.
Villa have struggled in the Premier League for the past few seasons but this is a new and chastening experience. Bottom of the table, with five points from 14 games and now 11 defeats in that time. It's beyond relegation form; it's close...
NORWICH, England -- Three points from Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Norwich City at Carrow Road in the Premier League on Sunday.
1. Arsenal slip up
Once again, Arsenal's rivals presented them with an opportunity. Once again, Arsenal failed to take it.
Of the Premier League's top five, only Manchester City won on Saturday. The Gunners had a chance to capitalise on the failures of Leicester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. But at a wet and windy Carrow Road, they fell short once again.
