Fans were treated to a free-flowing and interesting actions in Week two of the EPL.
Heading to the next week of this season, we’ve got some interesting matchups to anticipate.
Crystal Palace vs Everton: Sunday, 12:00 am (AEST)
These 2 groups arrive in unbeaten and have surely looked impressive to begin the year up to now. Whoever can pick up the 3 points here will work amazing things for their campaign.
This ought to be a fun match with the two teams capable of enjoying counter-attacking football. In addition, both of these teams are not reluctant to proceed .
Crystal Palace have put up in a 4-4-2 formation so much with Jordan Ayew up front while Jeffrey Schlupp and Andros Townsend and also have done well to encourage the attack out wide.
Meanwhile, Everton have put up so much in 4-3-3 formation because their deadly front of Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Rodriguez continues to be enormous threats on target.
The midfield is going to be a significant struggle. It will probably be intriguing to see if the two supervisors set up any distinct. You could assert that Everton could be talented. However, if James McCarthy and James McArthur will hold their own at the midfield, Crystal Palace should have a opportunity to come away with points.
Burnley vs Southampton: Sunday, 5:00 am (AEST)
These teams completed tenth and 11past previous year however they enter this game with no points up to now. Southampton will be desperately seeking to prevent losing their first few games.
The Saints repeatedly got burnt a week defensively since they maintained a top defensive line that Tottenham exploited. While Burnley will not pose the exact same threat, Southampton must tighten up their defence since they were fortunate not to concede more goals from Crystal Palace at Week 1. )
On the bright side, Southampton appeared decent in assault and were likely unfortunate not to score more goals from Spurs.
The primary factor of this game will probably come down to which team could encourage their most important strikers and produce greater targets. While all eyes will be on strikers Danny Ings and Chris Wood, the group that could acquire meaningful contributions from the other players can come away with the victory.
Sheffield Utd vs Leeds: Sunday, 9:00 pm (AEST)
In a very clear comparison of styles, we’ve got the slow, methodical Sheffield Utd taking on the competitive and expansive Leeds Utd.
Sheffield haven’t had a fantastic beginning, being the only team yet to score a goal. Meanwhile, Leeds have brought nothing but aims into the Premier League plus they seem electrical.
Patrick Bamford, Mateusz Klick and Helder Costa have starred for Leeds so much and they will be seeking to strike a vulnerable Sheffield defence who’ll be without John Egan after being sent off weekly.
While Sheffield are strong defensively, Leeds tend to be more vulnerable to conceding goals. However, it’s extremely tricky to determine how Sheffield’s offence will have the ability to produce enough targets demanded.
Overall, while it’s not an wonderful matchup on paper, it is going to be intriguing to find out how the supervisors make adjustments as the fashions of both of these teams fight over the weekend.
Man City vs Leicester: Monday, 1:30 am (AEST)
Leicester will face their first tough test coming up against Manchester City who didn’t lose a beat last weekend. ) When those 2 teams met last year, City had won both competitions.
City had a convincing win against an excellent side in Wolves and they will be seeking to make an impression from the Foxes.
One of those encouraging signs in Leicester’s win against Burnley was that four goals failed to demand Jamie Vardy. Leicester had just scored one goal against City last year which came out of their main striker Vardy.
If Leicester are likely to have a opportunity to come away with things, they will have to dig in defensively from a powerful City assault whilst at the same time helping Vardy moving ahead.
Liverpool vs Arsenal: Tuesday, 5:00 am (AEST)
In another bout of unbeaten teams, the defending champions host Arsenal, who can face their first real obstacle.
Arsenal haven’t won Anfield because 2012 but heading to the match, there’s some optimism that Arsenal can come away with a point.
Arsenal haven’t lost thus far across all contests and they’ll be expecting that left-back Kieran Tierney can reunite after suffering a slight injury. The Gunners persevered against West Ham to win late along with their entrance three Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Willian appear to pose a hazard to opposing defences.
This are the match which Arsenal buffs quantify their group on.
With Thiago Alcantara creating an superb introduction a week, it provides Jurgen Klopp a favorable headache in staff selection. Arsenal’s midfield might need to be in their A-game as Liverpool so much have been ruthless moving ahead. If Arsenal isn’t attentive, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane may be licking their lips.
