After an action packed weekend of Absa Premiership football, KickOff.com looks at five things we learned.
Tau is a favourite to win Footballer of the Season
In Mamelodi Sundowns’ 1-0 victory over Cape Town City on Friday night, Percy Tau proved just why he has been his side’s best player this season with a sublime assist for match winner Khama Billiat. Just when it looked like Tau had lost out on a chance to deliver a cross into the box, Tau’s brilliance shone through with an assist that allowed Billiat to volley the ball home.
Norodien has lots to offer
Signed on loan from Orlando Pirates, Riyaad Norodien made a dream debut for Platinum Stars with a brace in a 3-3 draw with Chippa United. His second goal, in particular, was a touch of brilliance, as he unleashed a powerful shot to level matters. He was not given much of a chance at Pirates, but he will get the game-time he needs at Dikwena. He certainly has a lot to offer them.
Ryan Moon can lead the Chiefs attack
Even though there have been calls for new signing Leonardo Castro to start, Ryan Moon has shown that he can do the job for Amakhosi upfront with three goals this year. All his goals have been scored with his head, so it means Amakhosi players just have to keep whipping the ball into the area.
Arrows are in trouble
They made a promising start to the season, going the first nine matches of the season without a defeat. But with just one win in their last 15 matches, Arrows could find themselves getting relegated again. They can’t hold on to their leads and that’s going to let them down.
Chiefs kiss the title goodbye?
They enjoyed a good start to 2018, but Amakhosi let themselves down by dropping points away to Bidvest Wits on Saturday. They squandered a lead and wasted a couple of opportunities towards the death. It's what's going to let them down in the final few months of the season.
