There has never been aPremier Leagueweekend quite like it and until the next winterWorld Cup, perish the thought, there will not be another.

The 10 fixtures that have led us to this unnatural juncture in the season brought distractions and the threat of minds on the drift. Little more than a week out from Qatar becoming centre of the football universe, there were plenty of fears, too.

A total of 102 players expected to meet up with their national squads this week featured in Premier League games either on Saturday or Sunday. Or, more pertinently, 35 per cent of all the players used in those 10 games will soon be headed to Qatar. Some are already en route.

There were those who loved every minute, like Uruguay internationalsRodrigo BentancurandDarwin Nunez, who both signed off in style by inspiring wins forTottenhamandLiverpool, but others were left to curse the timing of a World Cup finals beginning in November. All they can do is wait and hope.

Unlike the 2018 World Cup in Russia, when 32 days stood between its first game and the last round of the Premier League season, preparations barely stretch to a week this time around.

That all made for a curious mood and creeping anxieties.The Athleticreflects on the weirdness of the final weekend before the World Cup begins.

It is 2.29pm on Saturday and a penny is offered for the thoughts of England manager Gareth Southgate.Manchester Citys home game againstBrentfordhad provided the chance to check onJohn StonesandPhil Fodenbut it was instead the centre-forward the England manager chose to omit from his 26-man squad who ismaking headlines.

Not only hadIvan Toneyopened the scoring, he was the matchwinner in a2-1 victory over the Premier League champions. Life moves on, said Brentfords manager Thomas Frank when paying tribute to his influential striker. You get a big disappointment like he has had but the critical thing is exactly why we love football.

Reece James, another who received bad news from Southgate when failing to recover from injury, appreciated an Instagram post from Toney, eyes closed and fingers in ears when celebrating his big moment at the Etihad Stadium. If I speak I am in big trouble, wrote James in response, a nod to Jose Mourinhos famous quote-turned-meme. Some, it seems, felt Southgate got the call badly wrong.

Manchester Citys unlikely defeat to Brentford was notable in other ways, too. Thirteen of the 22 players to start the game will be in Qatar, with NorwegianErling Haalandthe only one of Manchester Citys starting XI to instead be starting a month off.

Asked if that had been a distraction for his side, City manager Pep Guardiola declined to take the bait. I dont think so, he said afterwards. I saw how good they trained, how focused they are, but tactically we had problems to control.

Aymeric Laportegave Spain coach Luis Enrique something to worry about when suffering a nasty blow to the head but was at least able to finish the game once concussion fears had seemingly been allayed.Bryan Mbeumo, David Reya andMathias Jensen, three of Brentfords World Cup players, were not hanging around. All had brought suitcases with them to the Etihad, allowing them to head straight off to join up with their international squads. Toney, alas, did not need to have the same urgency.

It had to happen, didnt it? No preparations are complete for the World Cup without an injury scare andEnglands was focused upon the midfielder that had half of the country calling for his inclusion.

James Maddison, whose stock has rocketed in the final weeks before Qatar, had already opened the scoring inLeicester Citys eventual 2-0 win away toWest Ham Unitedbut midway through the first half hobbled off down the tunnel, his afternoon done.

Cue the social media meltdown as supporters momentarily agonised over the fitness of a playmaker who once played 34 minutes for England back in 2019.
