Hello, League Football is back again so am I. How did you enjoy the little football break on this blog? Now let me get you started on the matters! First of all it was Barcelona; 8-2 then to the little unrest around Messi which seem to have settled, now its Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Over the week they got beaten in the first two opening games, first by newly promoted side Lens and then to Marseille ( a match that produced over 11 yellow cards and 5 red cards); I am thus left to infer that It seems anything Bayern Munich touches does not end up the same way again (Remember Chelsea too had to go into massive recruits after meeting Bayern) well that’s not the focus anyways. The opening fixtures have all been exciting and I couldn’t help but notice certain changes and points which I want to share.
• Penalties: Liverpool, Leceister city, Chelsea all started the season with penalties and to me are likely to be contenders for the most penalties awarded to a club this season. 😂😂 (something a certain club got criticized massively for last season). Yes we understand this is usually associated with the rapid intensity of play, burst of energy and good attacking threat all in a bid to kick start a new season on an excellent note and win trophies. Well I hope Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City too get their own penalties, at least that would be fair enough.
• The Surprises:
Arsenal came off the first game with a clean sheet and impressed everyone with Lacazette even setting a record as the first player to score first in two opening fixtures in the league (funny enough they didn’t even rely on penalties), they are also first on the table currently. What a Wow! Meanwhile newly promoted Leeds United almost rattled champions Liverpool to pull the biggest surprise setting up very clean goals against a team with somewort best defense last season. This is a warning to other big clubs and caution to Liverpool. We expect more to come.
• The Downfalls: Definitely Tottenham Hotspur didn’t do well with the Coach even expressing his displeasure over what was termed a ‘lazy’ approach (hoping they find a spur for the next games). Newly promoted sides Fulham and West Brom too didn’t have a nice outing. But this is just the 1(First) out of 38 let’s give them a fair chance.
Talking about the first games, Gabriel of Arsenal scored on his first game. Timo Werner and Kai Havertz of Chelsea got their Premier league debut yesterday but couldn’t find the back of the net. This is what Timo Werner had to say:
Welcome to the English Premier League!
• Up next : Chelsea vs Liverpool.
