Back in the summer, Arsenal were the subject of ridicule following the infamous £40m + £1 offer made for Liverpool's Luis Suarez. Arsenal were clearly under the impression that any bid exceeding the £40m mark would be enough to trigger a release clause in Suarez's contract, and set the transfer wheels in motion.

Manchester United's legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson urged the fans in his farewell speech to show strong support to the new manager. The fans have done exactly that until now, albeit there is a wave of frustration hitting the spine of every Old Trafford faithful.
Liverpool sent out a very clear message to the teams around them on Saturday as they confidently beat Southampton 3-0 dealing with regular pressure from the away side's attack yet maintaining a clean sheet.

With Liverpool in sparkling form and five of England's starting 11 coming from the Reds, Roy Hodgson seemed to have adopted his tactics accordingly.
