Last season, Chelsea became notorious for being horrid, later recovering under Hiddink‘s management. However, even though Arsenal won the Community Shield match, they went on to lose both Premier League games to the Blues. Chelsea managed to score two clean sheet victories when meeting the Gunners – so are we going to see something similar this time around, too?
On 16th of September, 1996, one Arsène Wenger was appointed as the manager of Arsenal. Back then, in the pre-Google times, the general reaction was “Arsène who?”. And here we are 20 years later, with the same Frenchman still overlooking one of the best teams that England has ever produced, and there probably isn’t anyone who’s the least bit into football who wouldn’t know his name.
It feels like we just got off the wild ride that was the previous season – and here we are at it again, except this time everyone‘s watching Leicester. Back then they crushed Arsenal‘s dreams of triumphing in the League, and now they‘re going to go heads out to see who‘s better this time around. It‘s safe to assume that this should be nothing short of brilliant.
It seems like the season of 15/16 was just here – needless to say, nobody has fully recovered from the rollercoaster that it was just yet. And now we‘ve got a fresh Premier League run ready to go with some pretty brilliant matches on the very opening week! Arsene’s lads are going to face Klopp’s squad, so that should be interesting to say the very least.
With only a handful of weeks left to play, we‘ve already seen many second-try games, but these ones are going to be extra good. There are two pairings that have both met in pretty passionate first fixtures of the Premier League, and this weekend, they will be hungry for blood. It‘s time for some brilliant revenge football!
Even though the English teams are mostly miserable internationally this season, Premier League did retain four UEFA Champions League slots for 17/18. That means there are still three places in the group stage and one in the qualifiers to fight for, and fight the teams will. Let‘s take a look at our potential Top 4!
The hottest games of the weekend are definitely over at the FA Cup, where eight teams are going to battle it out in order to advance to the semi-final. The two-times defending champions Arsenal would no doubt fancy a third consecutive title, but they aren’t the only ones who have their eyes set on the prize. There are games to be played first, so let’s take a look at that!
With the end of the season already almost visible everyone has gotten accustomed to the changes and neither Leicester in lead nor Chelsea out of the title chase doesn‘t seem all that strange anymore. And this week, there is a different kind of storm brewing: the North London derby will see bloodthirsty Tottenham and Arsenal clashing on Saturday.
There’s only 11 weeks of play left at this season’s Premier League, and despite everyone’s well educated guesses, Leicester City is still leading, the Spurs are in the second place, and the title is still up for grabs for quite a few contenders. And, of course, there’s two games that are going to be particularly interesting – the Man United v Arsenal and the Liverpool derby.
Champions League Round of 16 is in full swing which obviously means that there are brilliant matches happening every week. This time around, there are two clashes that are definitely worth a watch: the Bayern Munich and Juventus meet, and the Arsenal and Barcelona game. The first leg often sets the tone, so what is it going to be?
