This Week’s Premier League Fixtures
Everton v West Brom Leeds United v Fulham Man United v Crystal Palace Arsenal v West Ham Southampton v Tottenham Newcastle v Brighton Chelsea v Liverpool Leicester v Burnley Aston Villa v Sheffield United Wolves v Manchester City
Everton’s summer spending spree seems to have paid off, after years of poor transfer business. James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure all started against Tottenham and all impressed. James Rodriguez in particular silenced a lot of his doubters, and looked right at home. Arguably more importantly, Dominic Calvert Lewin opened his account for the year. If Everton are to have a big year, they’ll need more goals from their young striker. It was a different story for West Brom, who massively struggled against Leicester. Their defence looked like it hadn’t quite adjusted to the Premier League, and they were made to pay in the second half. Going forward, again, there have been no major improvements from their promotion season, and it’s tough to see them getting much better. Expect Everton to run them ragged on Saturday, with James Rodriguez running the show.
Leeds will be welcomed back in the Premier League with open arms if they can continue to produce games like their 4-3 defeat at Liverpool. Patrick Bamford, Jack Harrison and Mateusz Klich all scored for Leeds, although there may be some worries at the back. Without 2 of last season’s starting defenders, there was always going to be an adjustment period for Bielsa’s side. Against a less threatening Fulham side, they might be able to work out some of their issues. Fulham have adopted a different transfer strategy for this campaign in the Premier League. Rather than spending millions on new players, they are relying mostly on the squad that got them promoted in the first place. However, against Arsenal, that risk showed no signs of paying off. Top scorer Mitrovic came off the bench on Saturday, but even when he was on the pitch, Fulham showed almost no threat. It could be a long season for Fulham, particularly if they don’t pick up any points against teams like Leeds.
Manchester United open their Premier League season on Saturday, following their post-Europa League break. A lot of the summer has been spent chasing Jadon Sancho, but their squad mostly looks the same at this point. Donny Van de Beek is the only incoming transfer at this point, who should form a formidable midfield alongside Pogba and Fernandes. With Rashford, Greenwood and Martial leading the line, there’s plenty of quality going forward. Hoping to spoil their start to the season are Crystal Palace, who travel to Old Trafford on the back of a 1-0 win against Southampton. Wilfried Zaha scored a near post volley early on to give Palace the lead, and they looked comfortable throughout. They were without new signings Eberiche Eze and Michy Batshuayi in the starting line up, but we can expect both to be involved on Saturday. Palace will definitely make this difficult for United, but we can still see them edging out a 1-0 win.
Arsenal fans will be delighted with the past week. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang finally extended his deal at the Emirates, just days after the Gunners opened their season with a 3-0 win at Fulham. Even though Aubameyang scored in the game, it was new signing Willian who stole the show. He set up all 3 goals and already looks like he fits Arsenal’s system perfectly. New center half Gabriel also impressed early on, and it looks like Arsenal finally have a strong team together. For West Ham though, it’s a very different story. After a summer of disarray, their misery continued with a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle. Despite creating almost nothing for the full match, they still hit the bar twice early on. But, their defence and midfield offered nothing. Declan Rice in particular looked poor, perhaps distracted by constant transfer rumours. With no players looking like they want to play for West Ham, they could be on the end of another battering on Saturday.
After plenty of positivity over the summer, Southampton didn’t get off to an ideal start to the 20/21 season. The Saints are another side that has failed to improve their starting XI, but have only lost Hojbjerg in return. Much of the optimism was focused around striker Danny Ings, who scored 18 times last season. He didn’t get off the mark on Saturday, but he will fancy his chances against Tottenham. Defensively, Mourinho’s side looked poor against Everton. They could have conceded more than once, and didn’t really offer much going forward either. Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguillon are set to join in the next few days, but they likely won’t be available on Sunday. Without that much needed injection of quality, Spurs could easily fall to their second defeat in a row, as well as giving Danny Ings the goal he needs.
Newcastle started their season perfectly with a 2-0 win away at West Ham. It was arguably their best performance under Steve Bruce, as the Magpies had a positive outlook from the start. In the first half, West Ham hit the bar twice, but Andy Carroll and Jonjo Shelvey also came close. 53 minutes in, debutant Callum Wilson nipped in at the near post to open the scoring, before Jeff Hendrick also bagged a goal on his first Newcastle appearance. With Ryan Fraser also set to join the lineup on Sunday, there will be plenty of optimism on Tyneside. Despite losing 3-1 to Chelsea, there will also be positivity in the Brighton camp. They were probably the better side on Monday night, despite Chelsea fielding all of their new signings. Tariq Lamptey in particular was impressive down the right hand side, and was at the front of most of Brighton’s attack. With both sides more attacking than last season, goals might actually be on the cards at St James’ Park
Chelsea began their season with a 3-1 win over Brighton, but it wasn’t all plain sailing for Frank Lampard. Timo Werner impressed, but new signing Kai Havertz was arguably the worst player on the pitch for large portions. Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga also came under more criticism, after easily being beaten for Brighton’s goal. Ideally, Thiago Silva will be in the defence on Sunday, providing some cover for Kepa, but he will still be under pressure. Liverpool faced similar criticisms after conceding 3 goals to newly promoted Leeds. Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander Arnold and Joe Gomez were all at fault at some point. It remains to be seen whether this was a one off, or a sign of complacency at Anfield. Thankfully, Mo Salah remains as reliable as ever, scoring a hattrick to drag his side to a win. This was a pattern we saw at the start of last season, with Liverpool scoring plenty of goals, but failing to keep them out at the other end.
After a very poor end to last season, Leicester will be relieved to open this year with a comfortable 3-0 lead. After a shaky first half, Leicester quickly took control after the break. Timothy Castagne started his Leicester career with a goal, before Jamie Vardy scored a brace of penalties. Vardy getting off to a positive start is also huge for Leicester, who will be praying that age doesn’t catch up to Vardy this year. They’ll face a Burnley side who should be fresh after a long summer. There’s been no major changes at Turf Moor, so we should know exactly what to expect from Burnley again this season. That’s been the case for most years, but the issue is how will Leicester attempt to stop them. A safe bet in any Burnley game is to bet for a low amount of goals - so that’s exactly what we’ll do.
After only just surviving last season, Aston Villa open their 20/21 campaign against Sheffiled United. In the summer, Villa were linked with countless amounts of players. In the end, they ended up signing Matty Cash, Ollie Watkins and Emi Martinez who can improve all areas that they needed. Ollie Watkins will be the most exciting talent from the new incomings, after scoring 26 goals in the Championship last season. Sheffield United will be the team tasked with keeping him quiet on Monday. Their second season back in the top flight couldn’t have started much worse last weekend. They found themselves 2 goals down within 6 minutes as they failed to contain Wolves. Despite their poor start, they dragged themselves back into the game and arguably looked the better side after the break. There might also be extra motivation for Sheffield United, following a goal line technology failure last season that cost them 2 points. Although, we can simply see a repeat result of last seasons match.
Wolves will be feeling as confident as ever coming into this match. Not only did they get off to a winning start against Sheffield United, but they have an incredible recent record against Manchester City. Last season, they completed the double over Pep Guardiola’s side and will definitely use that as motivation on Monday. Unfortunately for them, so will Manchester City, who will want to put Wolves back in their place. City have made two high profile signings this summer; Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake. Torres can be seen as Sane’s replacement, whilst Ake fills a much needed whole in defence for City. It’s the first season in a while that City have properly addressed their problems, and with Guardiola wanting to prove the media wrong, expect very strong performances from them this season.
