With the last games of 2013, there were some notable performances but some of them were not the best. However, yet again, it wasn’t consigned to just on the field as some of the villains of the piece were off the field looking on. Here is a look at the villains from the Premier League weekend.
It’s the second time he has featured in these articles recently for his treatment of Malky Mackay, and as a result of his sacking of Mackay, his side was managerless for the 2-2 draw against Sunderland, then he seemingly booed his side off the field. Classy.
Some will say Simon Mignolet should be the villain from the Liverpool side, but Glen Johnson’s performance was terrible against Chelsea. His inability to keep hold of the ball left Liverpool heavily exposed, though it must be said Willian was terrific up against him.
0-0 at half time against Hull City, from there you’d hope your side could be solid in the second half. Not so in Fulham’s case as they conspired to concede six goals in the second half against Fulham and put in an abject performance at the back. Their defence should take a long, hard look at themselves after that performance.
A bit harsh but it was a clearance that could have been executed a little better as he kicked it against Javier Hernandez leading to Danny Welbeck’s winner for Manchester United against Norwich at Carrow Road. Credit must go to the United duo for their pressing, but he could have taken the safe option and booted the ball into touch.
