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.
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,
The EFL Trophy is not the easiest competition to bet on, with teams making several changes to their starting eleven, but this is a game where I don’t think that will matter too much should it happen. Wycombe have made a fantastic start in League One this season, they sit in 2nd place so far and have lost just one of their 12 games played. Stevenage are in a league below, and couldn’t have made a worse start,
While the international break may lead many to believe that we aren’t going to get any kind of entertaining domestic games, the EFL Trophy respectfully disagrees. This isn’t the kind of tournament that is going to blow the minds of too many Premier League fans, but even with that being the case, it gives a lot of fans the opportunity to take in some high quality lower league football. Today, we’re going to take a look at what should be an intriguing clash of styles between Forest Green Rovers and Coventry City down in Gloucestershire.
The Premier League is back once more as we look ahead to the final set of fixtures before the upcoming international break. There are still a lot of issues that need to be resolved in regards to how teams are shaping up in the early portion of the season, because at this moment in time, the only thing that is clear is who the two leading contenders in the title race will be. Aside from that it’s pretty wide open.
The Premier League returns with a vengeance once more this weekend, as we gear up for the final set of fixtures before we begin yet another international break. There are some intriguing possibilities and match-ups to sink our teeth into over the next few days, with one of them being Liverpool vs Leicester City. Both clubs have made phenomenal starts to the new campaign, and while Brendan Rodgers may be one of the focal points here,
We’ve had a fantastic weekend of Premier League action, and with the summer officially being in the rear view mirror, it’s time for the world to feast their eyes upon what England’s top tier has to offer. Today, we’re going to be taking a look at a very special game between two of the primary contenders to finish the season in the top four as Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford. The two old rivals will square off on Monday Night Football,
On Sunday we have just one Premier League game taking place and this sees Leicester host Newcastle. The Foxes have got off to a very impressive start and before the games are played this weekend, they currently sit in 3rd position in the Premier League, behind the big two at the top. They have lost just one game so far, with an away defeat at Old Trafford against Manchester United. They started the season with two draws but since then we have seen them play very well to win three out of their last four games.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be expecting nothing less than victory when he leads his team out on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Brighton to Stamford Bridge. The Blues have started fairly well but they were beaten by Liverpool last weekend and by Valencia in the Champions League before that, so they have work to do here to redeem themselves and get back on track.
Although it was mainly their youngsters taking part,
