MY11 SAY 3-2

The Anfield Stadium will be the venue for the battle of the top teams, as Liverpool will welcome Arsenal to Merseyside as the Reds will want to avenge their back to back loss to the Gunners.

 

In 56 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Liverpool have won 21 games, while Arsenal have won 16 matches, with 19 games ending in a draw. The Gunners won their last two matches (EPL and Community Shield) after failing to defeat Jurgen Klopp in their previous matches.

 

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and defender Joe Gomez are major doubts for this tie after both picked a knock in their win against Chelsea. Xherdan Shaqiri is also a doubt. Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are out due to injury? For Arsenal, defenders Kieran Tierney and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, and Pablo Mari Villar are all major doubts for this clash. Emile Smith-Rowe, Shkodran Mustafi, Gabriel Martinelli, and Calum Chambers are out due to injury.

 

Both teams have started well, winning 6 points each in their first two matches, scoring a combined 11 goals. This will be a scoring game, but Liverpool may just edge it as they have an impressive 60-game unbeaten run at home.

MY11 SAY 2-1

The new Barcelona, who are without talisman Luis Suarez will kick-start their season under new manager Ronald Koeman at the Camp Nou against Samuel Chukwueze’s Villarreal.

This will be the start of a new beginning for Barcelona under Koeman, and with all the off the field problems with club President Josep Maria Bartomeu, captain Lionel Messi and the sale of some players, it will be difficult to know what to expect from Barcelona. But Villarreal will pose a big threat.

Real Sociedad V Real Madrid

Real Madrid start title defence with goalless draw against Sociedad - RESULT: 0 - 0

Spanish La Liga defending champions, Real Madrid kick off their league campaign with a goalless draw against Real Sociedad at the Anoeta Stadium on Sunday night.

 

Sociedad goalkeeper, Alex Remiro had an outstanding performance as he denied Los Blancos on different occasions, but the best chance in the game fell to the home side, as Alexander Isak’s clear cut chance was stopped by Thibaut Courtois, who spread his body well to block from the young Swedish striker.

 

 

The hosts now have 2 points in their first two matches, after a 1-1 draw in their first game, while the Merengues have just 1 point as they started their campaign this past weekend.

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.
