Premier League football is back once again this weekend as we look ahead to what should be a really entertaining set of fixtures. From the top of the league to the very bottom there are surprising results to be found in the early stage of the new season, and we can’t see that trend stopping any time soon. Today, we’re going to be taking a look at Burnley vs Chelsea, as Sean Dyche’s men attempt to do what they do best: overcome the odds and shock the football world as they take on Frank Lampard’s new look Blues side at Turf Moor.
We have a Premier League game on Friday night this weekend and it sees Leicester, who have made a very good start to the season, travelling down south to take on Southampton. This is a chance for Leicester to leapfrog Manchester City and go above them, with City playing later in the weekend, while Southampton will have their eye on the relegation zone, they could find themselves in it if results don’t go their way.
The start to this season has been far from easy for Manchester United, as has been well documented all over the world. However, one thing they deserve a lot of credit for is their improved performance against Liverpool on Sunday. Fans will be hoping that is them turning the corner and as far as their Europa League game on Thursday goes, I certainly hope it is.
United only drew that game 1-1 but should really have won it.
Inter Milan have made a fantastic start to life in Serie A this season, and currently sit just behind Juventus who are at the top of the table. However, they haven’t managed to replicate that in the Champions League so far, and they come into game week three with just one point on the board which came from a disappointing draw against Slavia Prague in their first game. Their last resulted in defeat against Barcelona,
Tottenham fans that were hoping to see their team bounce back after the international break on Saturday were left disappointed when their team needed a late equaliser to draw 1-1 at home with Watford. This has been a poor start all round for the North London club as their troubles within the camp continue.
This isn’t an issue based around personnel and how good their players are, this is to do with team harmony and morale,
All other Premier League sides have made their return to action following the international break: except for two. Sheffield United and Arsenal will both attempt to get back into the swing of things on Monday Night Football when they square off, and despite the stature and reputation of both clubs, we can’t imagine that this is going to be the kind of David vs Goliath encounter we’d all think it to be in years gone by.
The Championship returns this weekend and on Saturday afternoon the current league leaders West Brom will head to Middlesbrough hoping to keep their place at the top. The Baggies have played very well so far, and actually they have only lost one of their 11 games so far this season. They lost out in the playoffs last season and have done well to bounce back, another bid for promotion looks likely once more.
Club football returns this weekend and the English Championship kicks back off on Friday night with a game in Wales. Cardiff host Sheffield Wednesday on the returning night, and this has the makings of being a good game. Both teams have started well, and in the case on Wednesday they have started better than people were expecting them to.
Going into the games this weekend, Sheffield Wednesday are up in 8th position, just one point off the playoffs while Cardiff are just below them in 11th,
We have a great battle going on right now in Group J of the Euro 2020 qualifying round. Finland, Armenia and Bosnia are all battling it out for the second qualifying place behind runaway leaders Italy and it looks as though this will go down to the wire.
We have three games to go, with all three teams involved playing on Tuesday night, including a match between Finland and Armenia. Going into the games,
While we may have the end of the international break in sight with next weekend marking the return of the domestic game, there’s still a great deal that needs to be resolved in regards to the immediate future of the European Championship qualifiers. We still don’t know the identity of most of the nations that are planning on competing in next summer’s extravaganza, and that can only be a good thing when it comes to seeing high level drama on the international stage.
It’s crunch time in the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers, to the point where a lot of nations are just one or two games away from celebration or devastation. With 24 spots being up for grabs, as was the case in the last Euros, there are a lot of opportunities available to everyone – especially the two nations we’re taking a look at today, Wales and Croatia. It’s fourth vs first in Group E which should make for a pretty interesting contrast between the two teams,
It’s time to get back down to business with UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying, and today, we’re going to take a look specifically at Group F. There are four legitimate contenders when it comes to the top two automatic qualification spots, and while there’s not much further left to go, there’s still quite a bit of uncertainty left in the air. The game we’re looking at today will be contested between Norway and Spain, who are in two very different positions.
