4. Calling 911.
West Ham United’s woes don’t seem to end and the fans have now directed their fury on the club’s board, as was evident from the ‘RIP WHU’ and ‘Sack the Board’ banners that were held up during their recent defeat to Watford. Now, the Essex Police Force Control Room are urging the club’s fans to stop calling the emergency number 999 every time West Ham lose a match. “Ringing 999 because @WestHamUtd have lost again and you aren’t sure what to do is not acceptable! It is a complete waste of our time. #999foremergenciesonly (sic.)” the tweet read.

9. Defensive problem at City.
Partly out of desperation, partly due to having faith in his players’ versatility, Pep Guardiola has shown no fear in experimenting with Manchester City’s defense during his time at the English club. Right winger Jesus Navas was briefly redeployed at right back, to no great success.
