A London Derby gave us some excitement last week with an exciting game, as another Londoner and a Merseysider lock horn for this weeks game of the week.
Koscielny seems to be the biggest gift that Wenger will be getting as the transfer window is coming to a close, while Kolasinac is yet to be tested with some quality wingers down the right wing. This week could be the week, as Salah and Mane prepare to haunt Arsenal in their own way after finally qualifying for the Champions League this week. Wenger will be boosted by Sanchez’s return as Arsenal prepare for life in the Europa League for the first time in years.
After a successful draw against Manchester City at the Etihad, Everton will now look to impose the same formulae to stop the Blues at the Stamford Bridge. Koeman will hopefully be starting his record signing Gylfi Sigurdsson this week as he still finds room to accommodate his luxury signing from Swansea this week in the first eleven. Good news for Conte is that Fabregas will be back in the lineup and will give some valuable passing contribution to the team as Chelsea prepare for life after a Derby win against Spurs.
Two attacking managers, two thirsty managers, but sadly two of them in the opposite direction of the table. Bournemouth will be hosting Manchester City this week as they look forward to moving on with this season and get going. Howe reported that the Premier League is tougher than ever and the reason for that is the excelled money surrounding the league. Sadly, Bournemouth is yet to add quality to their side this season although it can’t be ruled out as a week to go yet.
Two of the worst starts to the season and you would automatically point out, Newcastle and West Ham United. Good news is that finally of the teams might kick off their campaign with a win else they might share points to start a slow and weird start to the season. Benitez is clearly in the market for some fresh signings as he has publicly criticized their chairman, while Bilic is done with his business as apart from Hernandez, the rest are yet to kick off. Don’t absorb your will to boredom, as this could be the turning point of both the teams.
If Huddersfield Town beats Southampton, they’ll go top of the league until the next set of games this week. A bit too early to dive into the 1920s wardrobe, but if nothing else is concerned, Wagner’s start with his vastly influential side would be considered the fastest start by a newly promoted team in the Premier League era. A Mr Clough miracle on the cards? Well, too early to call.
