Match of the Week

Chelsea V Liverpool

Chelsea v Liverpool - 20/09/2020 17:30
MY11 SAY 2-1

Super Sunday will see the battle between the big spenders and the champions, as Chelsea will welcome Liverpool to the Stamford Bridge in the clash of the titans.

 

There have been 56 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Chelsea have won 20 matches, while Liverpool have won 20 games, with the other 14 ending in a draw. The Reds have won their last 3 ties.

 

Chelsea could be without Christian Pulisic due to a hamstring injury. New signing Thiago Silva could make his debut, while Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell’s fitness will be monitored. Timo Werner suffered a small injury on his debut but should be fit to play. Liverpool, on the other hand, could have Kostas Tsimikas available as he’s back in training after a period of self-isolation for testing positive for COVID-19. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri are out due to injury.

 

Both teams struggled to get all 3 points on matchday and will be hoping to take an early lead. A win for either of them will be key, but Chelsea may just edge it because they will be playing at home.

Match of the Week

Real Sociedad V Real Madrid

Real Sociedad v Real Madrid - 20/09/2020 21:00
MY11 SAY 1-3

Real Madrid will face a tough challenge in their bid to defend the La Liga title with a trip to the Anoeta Stadium to face their long-time nemesis Real Sociedad on Sunday night.

 

In the last 24 meetings between these two teams, Real Sociedad have won just 4 matches, while Real Madrid have win 18, with the other 2 ending in a draw. Both teams have won 3 games each in their last 6 ties, with 4 wins going to the away side.

 

Sociedad missed some players due to positive COVID-19 tests, including David Silva, captain Mikel Oyarzabal and striker Willian Jose, but could have all of them available for this clash. Real Madrid, on the other hand, have a few players who are battling for fitness. Eden Hazard, Martin Odegaard, Marco Asensio, and Isco, but they will be assessed before the game. Gareth Bale is also expected to miss out, as he is close to returning to Tottenham.

 

La Real will likely face one of their best players if Odegaard plays for the Blancos, and Zinedine Zidane’s men will want to take an early advantage over Barcelona with a win. It will be an interesting game, but Real Madrid will edge it.

MY11 SAY 2-0

Juventus’ quest to win a 10th straight Serie A title will begin at home, as the Old Lady will welcome Sampdoria, who finished 15th last campaign, to the Allianz Stadium on Sunday night.

Nigeria Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi

Ndidi at centre-back: A good idea?

Naija midfield marshal Wilfred Ndidi played as a central defender in Leicester City’s 3-0 away win over West Bromwich Albion. Here we take a look at his performance in the match.

Ndidi Delighted With Leicester's Win Vs West Brom - Complete Sports

Ndidi is arguably the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League and for three years in a row, he has had more tackles than every player in the division, but with the Foxes facing a defensive crisis, Ndidi was played in defence.

It is important to note that Ndidi started his playing career as a defender, and he played in defence for his former club Genk before joining Leicester City in 2017. The opening match against West Brom was the first time he played there for the Foxes, and he did not disappoint.

Rodgers Thumbs Up Ndidi After Impressive Display Vs West Brom -

The 23-year-old attempted more 93 passes and 10 long balls more than any other player. 2 tackles, 2 interceptions, 1 blocked shot, and 4 clearances, more than any player. He did not commit any foul in the entire 90 minutes. Brendan Rodgers will want to try him again.

 

Do you think Ndidi did well as a Central Defender?

The visitors took an early lead in the first minute through Jose Luis Morales, but Gabriel Paulista equalized for the home side 11 minutes later. Morales scored again to give Levante the lead in the 36th minute, but the lead lasted just 3 minutes, as Maxi Gomez levelled it for Valencia. Two second-half goals from Manuel Vallejo gave the hosts a flying start to their season.

 

 

Valencia suffered a financial crisis and had to sell their key players, with many tippinged them to be relegated this season, but a 4-2 win on opening day will see them start at the top, while Levante are rock bottom after matchday 1.

 

Do you think Valencia will be relegate?

Neymar, 4 others sent off as PSG lose in French Le Classique

Brazil Superstar Neymar was among 5 players, who were sent off in Paris Saint-Germain’s home loss to Olympique de Marseille in a feisty local derby at the Le Parc des Princes on Sunday night.

 

Florian Thauvin scored the only goal in the match, after placing the ball on just beside the goalkeeper’s near post, following a long set-piece from Dimitri Payet on the half-hour mark.

 

The drama started in the 6th minute of added time following a needless foul on Daniel Paredes by Alvaro Gonzalez, and the brawl saw 5 players sent off. Paredes, Layvin Kurzawa, Jordan Amavi, Dario Benedetto, and Neymar, who narrowly escaped a red, but the VAR caught the Brazilian.

 

The 28-year-old Brazilian claimed Alvaro racially abused him, calling him a monkey and more. He was furious the VAR did not get that, but caught him punching Alvaro.

 

Do you think Neymar will get more than one match ban?
