Pressure on Swansea if Saints can beat Bournemouth
It's do or die on Saturday for Southampton when they take on local rivals Bournemouth. It's just one point from four games since Mark Hughes took over but there have been some encouraging signs.
They scored two against both Arsenal and Chelsea, and kept a clean sheet against Leicester so it's about trying to get that balance.
I thought they were excellent in the first half against Chelsea - as poor as the Blues were - and they need to show a similar level of commitment against Bournemouth, but keep it going for 90 minutes.
In the second half against Chelsea, it was panic stations - pretty much all 11 players were defending the box - and they'll need to avoid that. Treat the game as a one-off and leave nothing on the pitch.
If Saints can get the vital win it puts all the pressure on Swansea, who play in the late game against Chelsea. The Swans look a big price to go down at nearly 4/1 especially when you consider their goal difference (four goals worse off than Southampton). They play each other on May 8 in what could be the definition of a six-pointer.
Being in relegation trouble has been coming for Southampton to be honest - making wholesale changes as they have done every year will eventually catch up with you. As a player, when you see teammates being sold every summer you begin to question yourself. 'Am I not good enough?'
In hindsight, sacking Claude Puel for finishing eighth looks like the wrong call, especially as Mauricio Pellegrini was never able to make an impact. It wasn't clear what he was trying to do. The team didn't have an identity.
Back to basics has worked for Moore
Darren Moore has done a fantastic job at West Brom so far. He has got the players drawing on their inner Tony Pulis, which isn't something I thought I'd say!
You have to give Darren credit for not trying to necessarily stamp his own way of playing on the team. He's taken a look at the personnel in the squad and played a system and style that suits them, and they've got their mojo back.
You can see that Moore has lifted the dressing room; the players trust him and have bought into him and the results have followed. If they can continue to play like that until the end of the season, then he's absolutely the right candidate to take the job full-time.
Atletico heartbreak a familiar tale for Arsene's Arsenal
The 1-1 draw with Atletico on Thursday night was pretty much the Arsenal blueprint. Looking good, playing exciting football - but failing to capitalise and then getting caught with the sucker punch with the help of some awful defending.
It's another performance that highlights why it's the right time for Arsene Wenger to leave. Arsenal just don't have the consistency, even within the same game. If you look at someone like Mesut Ozil, he can be terrific for periods but then awful, all within 90 minutes.
I'm actually excited for Arsene now though, he gets an opportunity for a fresh start somewhere else. He has been linked with the French job, but club football is his passion and I can't see him going down the international route. He's just a workaholic; they'd have to put on extra games for him!
On Friday morning, Wenger was backed in from 25/1 to 10/3 to take the PSG job after it was confirmed Unai Emery is leaving in the summer.
