Sunday Feast on the Bridge
Chelsea against Arsenal is one of the biggest chances of the English season. Fixtures always produces nail biting. Chelsea were beaten 4-2 by Arsenal in this match last season. The Blues will be hungry for revenge, and most of the headlines will be Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Less than a year after being relieved of the Arsenal captaincy and sent to Barcelona, Aubameyang is back in the Premier League, this time as Arsenal’s rival.
Injured Spurs and Liverpool face to face
Liverpool have won 14 of their last 27 meetings at Tottenham Hotspur in recent times. However, two draws against Spurs last season prevented Liverpool from winning the Premier League title. The stakes are very different this time around, with both sides playing far from their best football. Fitness issues have played a big part and will continue to do so for Spurs with Christian Romero, Heung-min Son, Dejan Kulusevski and Richardson missing. Whereas, Liverpool will miss the services of Arthur, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, James Milner, Joel Matip and Naby Keita.
End of the road for Ralf Hasenhuttl?
When Southampton beat Chelsea at the end of August, enthusiasm will certainly be high for the club to begin a successful run of results. However, the Saints have lost five and won only one match since then. Austrian manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl has been in charge of Southampton for almost four years. They are welcomed in form by Newcastle this weekend before traveling to Liverpool next weekend. The odds are heavily against Southampton in both fixtures and the owners are left with no option but to part ways with Hasenhuttl.
