Adam Johnson scored a fantastic goal for Manchester City on Saturday to make it 3-1, and to kill off any hopes Wolves may have had of earning a draw.
Oddly enough, he may have helped City in more ways than just securing three points. Johnson is just one Premier League player struggling to get into the first team, and he could very well be on the move in January.
With two months to go before the winter transfer window opens, clubs will be looking at which of their players are expendable and who else's players they'd like to have.
Arsenal are full of confidence right now, but an injury to just about any player could ruin their season. Another centre-back (because Per Mertesacker hasn't been what people thought he'd be) would be a prudent purchase.
Another striker and/or winger wouldn't be a bad move either. Ditching Andrei Arshavin is a must.
Liverpool, meanwhile, may also want another centre-back and a midfielder or two (Adam Johnson perhaps?), while Chelsea may need to start looking for John Terry's eventual replacement. Manchester United's defense without Nemanja Vidic is nothing to brag about, either.
Manchester City really don't need anyone, but they'll surely do some shopping in January nonetheless.
Then there's players like Roman Pavluychenko, Giovani dos Santos and Heurlho Gomes who are all praying to be sent somewhere, anywhere but where they are. Wasn't life better when Harry Redknapp liked you?
