EPL Five talking points as Premier League enters Game Week 9. Today marks the start of the Premier League’s ninth week, with games taking place in several English locations.
Following the Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral services and the international week, this would be the second full schedule.
Teams are anticipated to face each other every three days up till the 2022 World Cup.
However, certain occasions this weekend are anticipated to get significant media attention.
1. Liverpool vs. Arsenal: Jurgen Klopp’s ailing Liverpool team will go to the Emirates on Saturday in an effort to improve their dismal Premier League performance. Liverpool are just outside the top five teams in the league rankings, while Arsenal are now in first place. In the Champions League, the Reds defeated Rangers, and they’ll be hoping to
Erik ten Hag and his team will meet Frank Lampard’s revitalized Everton in a challenging match on Sunday at Goodison Park. The Red Devils were destroyed 6-3 by Manchester City last week at the Etihad, handing them their second-heaviest loss of the year. Ten Hag will take all necessary steps to ensure that his squad resumes its winning ways.
Erik ten Hag and Cristiano Ronaldo: The renowned Portuguese superstar is off to a very sluggish start this year. Only one goal has been scored for the Red Devils this season by the 37-year-old. Ten Hag has only occasionally utilized him and left him on the bench for the whole 6-3 loss to Manchester City last weekend. The former Juventus player played again against Omonia in the Europa League on Wednesday, but it is still unknown if the Dutch manager would start him against Everton.
Manchester City might take the lead: This weekend, Pep Guardiola’s Cityzenes could take the lead atop the Premier League standings. The outcome of the match between Arsenal and Liverpool will determine this. Although opinions on who will win the game are varied, there is a strong suspicion that Jurgen may not want to lose to Arsenal today. With a victory over Liverpool, City, who now trail Arsenal by one point, would overtake them atop the standings.
No-cost scoring Defenders in the Premier League are still looking for a solution for Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker is unstoppable. In his most recent Premier League game, the 22-year-old scored a hat-trick against Manchester United. After the break for international play, Haaland set a record by scoring three consecutive hat tricks at home as City destroyed Man Utd 6-3. He contributed two assists to the historic game as well. Additionally, he added a double in the Champions League victory over Copenhagen to bring his season total to 19 goals in 12 games.
