For the final time, until the players begin to travel with their national teams to Qatar for the World Cup, there will be plenty to savour as the Premier League enters gameweek 16.
Slowly but surely, Brendan Rodgers has turned the tides at Leicester City. The Foxes’ manager is repaying the faith, time, and patience given to him by the board after a languid start to the season.
And on a wet Sunday afternoon in London, Arsenal showed character and intent to overcome an incoherent Chelsea. It is early days, perhaps, but the Gunners are doing a good enough job of challenging Manchester City for the title.
Some mouthwatering fixtures are lined up this weekend. With the focus slightly shifting to the big tournament in a week, it is fair to expect some surprising results.
