At the end of each blistering laugh lies a solemn story. A story to unfold history and a story to nurture the present. This is a story of this week’s unrivalled game, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Arsenal are now on an 11 game winning run and this week will reveal how good Arsenal really are. Emery has a huge headache ahead of the game as he might be starting the game with both his second choice wingbacks against the most dangerous wing pair in the league. On the contrary, Klopp will be given a boost with Keita back in practice at Melwood and Lallana getting game time. With Henderson’s absence, Fabinho will look to continue his run in the Red’s team. This game could end in the width if afforded by both the sides and can be the closest game in a while, with a lot of goals expected.
The only time Emery and Klopp met was in the Europa League final where another half-time inspirational repercussion moulded the success according to a lot of then Sevilla players. Klopp will be in a better world with the squad he has built since then.
England’s most decorated club against a club who was in League Two a decade back and yet form, passion, and persistence make Bournemouth a favourite against Manchester United in their game at Vitality Stadium. Jose Mourinho today mentioned in his press conference on title challenges and making to the top-4 that, “When you are outside the top four I don’t think you should speak about the title. When you are there, which we are going to be, you can look up, see the distance, look to the fixtures, to the calendar, you can look to the situation at that moment – also the injuries, suspension, form and then you can feel it.”.
He added, “But in this moment we are outside the top four so the point is now to get the points we need to try and be in the end of December in a better position than we are in now at this moment. I think we will be in a better position.” On the contrary, hopes are high with Eddie Howe and the squad as they push for three points to get closer to Europe next term.
Last week was catastrophic for Leicester City’s fraternity as we all look back about the damaging incident that took away five lives. Leicester City travels to Cardiff for their first match since the death of their owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, where it will be a different game when the whistle is blown even after 90 minutes. A game of love and affection and we’re going to expect love across the stadium as that can be the only medicine that can heal the structure along with a Leicester win. This man was huge for them, an owner who took care of the players and an owner who made the arrangements for many. The greatest thing of course was he saw their small family grow and win the Title not many years back.
Is Benitez this bad or is Newcastle United this boring? It was always about the board over the past few years, but it seems like it’s getting tougher and tougher for Rafa to work with his narrow squad any longer. Recent results are not doing anything good either as Rafa’s winless run continues. It will be a miracle to be out of the relegation zone by December, but hopefully, a few additions in the Winter transfer window could inject the squad and push for a fight later this season. Of course, if Rafa is at the realm till then. Watford might be on a great run and could well snatch the three points even before anything is done.
Floodlit games at Molineux have been cooking passions since the 1950s and another this weekend, as a rare late-night kick-off on a Saturday evening will be seen in a long time. Wolves will be living for it, Spurs ditto. Wolves now face the two North London clubs on successive weekends, presenting the possibility of a prolonged win. Adama Traore was finally given a start after so much headache in that situation, now is the time to realize if Traore is ready to start in the long run or he is in for those magical final 20mins to threaten any defence in England. Spurs have a few first-team players out. Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama are all sidelined, but Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen both started in the Carabao Cup win at West Ham in midweek after returning to fitness. A much-anticipated game in the making.
