To glove or not to glove? That is the question.
Premier League stars faced that age old conundrum this last weekend with temperatures plummeting almost to zero whilst matches were underway but despite having to brave the cold, just 24 of the 200 outfield players chose to wear gloves. Some stars also donned a variety of knitwear to try and keep just a little bit warmer before their respective kick-offs.
But this got CaughtOffside wondering – just which team is the hardest based on how many of their players had to wear gloves while playing this weekend.
We take a look below:
20th: Aston Villa (7C temperature) – Three
Three stars wore gloves including Gabriel Agbonlahor, midfielder Charles N’Zogbia and unexpectedly, hardman upfront Christian Benteke.
19th: Manchester City (5C temperature) – Three
Yaya Toure, who scored the penalty to put City back in the title race, was one of three City stars to be wearing knitwear.
17th=: West Ham (9C temperature) – Two
An almost tropical paradise in East London on Sunday compared to other grounds in the league. But two players had to wear gloves to keep warm, you wouldn’t think that’d go down well with Big Sam, but then again he might not understand as he does have all that natural insulation.
17th=: Swansea (9C temperature) – Two
West Ham’s opponents at the weekend, matching the Hammers like for like with two stars wearing gloves.
16th: West Brom (6C temperature) – Two
I’m not saying the gloves were the reason, but Alan Irvine’s side did manage to stop a four game losing streak. Maybe the entire West Brom side needs to wrap up warm when they play Aston Villa this weekend
