Premier League: Liverpool vs. Arsenal

The battle of the best midfielders in England will meet on Sunday at Anfield

One of the big ties this weekend in the Premiership and Liverpool will be hosting Arsenal at Anfield Sunday afternoon.  Liverpool are struggling to live up to their name of being one of the Big 4 this season, on the other hand Arsenal is having some injuries issue after start well in the Premier League. Loser of this match could spell the end to the title spur this season.

Liverpool are desperate for three points and with a squad close to full strength again, manager Rafa Benitez could be in for a chance to get his team back on the Premiership campaign. Benitez gave Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani his full debut in the midweek  2-1 defeated against Fiorentina. He rested Jose Reina and Lucas while Fernando Torres returned from injury by sitting on the bench. It’s no surprise that Liverpool’s main focus will be the Premiership and the match against Arsenal will prove whether they are capable in returning to the top of the Premier League

Arsenal are hanging by the thread with their injury crisis as they prepare their trip to Anfield. The Gunners travelled to Olympiakos and lost 1-0 in the midweek Champions League tie without several of their key players, only Theo Walcott was name as one of the senior members of the 10 teenagers selected. The kids managed to put out a good performance and you might wonder where they will be in a few years time. Manger Arsene Wenger is already suffering from 9 injuries to his first team squad and Tomas Rosicky is the latest name on the list. It will be a taunting task for Arsenal facing one of their main rivals in the League with a depleted team.

As Liverpool crashed out of the Champions League this midweek while Arsenal emerges victory over the rivals in the European campaign this season. Arsenal will also claim victory over Liverpool in the Premiership standing and also in the Carling Cup 2-1 win back in late October. Although, things are set to change, Liverpool have their strongest players back from injuries while Arsenal are losing their players to injuries left and right. Maybe Arsenal have been the strongest lately but Liverpool looks likely to win at all cost on Sunday.

Premier League: Everton vs. Tottenham

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on December 3, 2009 at 10:13

By Joe,

Everton and Tottenham will tug it out at Goodison Park for the vital three points.

This match is classed as a top versus bottom clash in the Premiership. Not many people would have predicted that Everton would be classed as one of the bottom side this season. At the beginning of the season, both teams put their goals to challenge for a Champions League but only Tottenham have successfully kept their word. Everton are desperate for the 3 points in order to escape the relegation battle.

Everton slipped further into bottom half of the Premiership after being defeated 2-0 by their neighbor, Liverpool, last weekend at Goodison Park. The good news is that, Everton qualified for the last 32 in the Europa League which means they can concentrate on their form in the Premiership. Bad news is that Jo, Sylvain Distin and Dan Gosling will require treatment as they all went off injured against AEK Athens. All are doubtful to face Spurs. Joseph Yobo and Leon Osman are doubtful against Tottenham as he did not travel to Greece in the midweek. Lucas Neill and John Heitinga could be back in starting lineup after being ineligible against AEK Athens.

Tottenham crashed out of the Carling Cup in the midweek against Manchester United after being soundly defeated 2-0 at Old Trafford. Manager Harry Redknap p has since then come out with the comment of confirming that the Premier League is their main priority all along, even though they had a strong starting eleven against Man U. Never the less, Redkanpp will set his eyes on cementing their third spot in the Premiership and a performance against Everton will help his cause to keep tab with the top of the league.

Everton are struggling mainly due to their injuries to Phil Neville, Mikel Arteta, Phil Jagielka, Victor Anichebe and James Vaughan. They are thin at the central defense and many of the players are playing out of their position in order to cover for the rest. If Everton can give the same enthusiasm and determination they showed against Liverpool last week then it will be a matter of time the result will come David Moyes’s way. Spurs are not to be underestimate but their last second away games from home finished in a defeat for the London team.

Premier League: Manchester City vs. Chelsea

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on December 3, 2009 at 09:58

By Joe,

Manchester City is looking to break Chelsea's duck and their chance will come this Saturday.

Like what you read? Check out

Midweek football and this time it’s the quarterfinals for the Carling Cup. Arsenal will travel to Manchester City Wednesday evening in order to fight it out for a place in the semifinal. Both sides have recently distant themselves from the Premiership title and it looks likely they will have to find some silverware this season elsewhere.

Manchester City have drawn their sixth consecutive Premier League matches and that is damaging their quest to break into the Big 4.  Their recent Premiership 1-1 home draw against Hull City showed that some of their key players are not up to their best form. A bit of change to their starting lineup could be on Manager Mark Hughes future plan. He has Robinho, Vincent Kompany and Micah Richards fit again. Manchester City will advance to the semifinal of the Carling Cup after beating Arsenal’s youngsters 3-0 in the midweek. Stephan Ireland and Martin Petrov are rated doubtful against Chelsea.

The Blues are marching on after easily disposing their neighbors, Arsenal, last weekend, in the Emirates in a 3-0 emphatic win. They now travel to Manchester to face the blues of the city where both squads are full of star ridden players. The differences between the two clubs are seen by the results on the pitch. Chelsea have gone through a four match winning sequence and did not concede a single goal in the process. Manager Carlo Ancelotti will want the team to extend their lead on the top of the Premiership even without the service of Daniel Sturridge, Salmon Kalou, Alex and Jose Boswinga. Ashley Cole is expected to return to the lineup after limping off with a hamstring injury against his former club, Arsenal.

Chelsea crashed out of the Carling Cup after taking the match to extra time and penalties against Blackburn. They have gone 34 matches without losing in normal time and that’s some record that the Ancelotti will inherit. Manchester City fielded a strong team against Arsenal in the midweek and surely Hughes will recall his winning eleven. Stalemate looks likely the score but many will hope City will dent Chelsea winning run.

Premier League: Arsenal vs. Chelsea

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 25, 2009 at 11:38

By Joe,

Could there be another brawl at the Emirates? The London derby is one of the most heated matches in Premier League.

From the Merseyside derby to the London derby, it is sure a Super Sunday for all the Football fans in the world. The London derby will be an interesting one as it could determine where the Premiership will go this season. Chelsea are leading the table and if they win at the Emirates then it would be a two legged horse race between the blues and Manchester United. Arsenal will have to dig deep to avoid this.

The North side of London will be contesting for the top spots in the Premier League. They are currently third in the league and eight points behind their London rival, Chelsea, at the top. Many have doubted Arsene Wenger’s kid this season but it seems like they are finding their stride. They reached the last 16 of the Champions League in the midweek after beating Standard Liege 2-0 at home. The French manager will be happy to put away another London rival at the Emirates after disposing Tottenham with 3-0. Wenger is concerned over the injuries of Kieran Gibbs, Andrey Arshavin and William Gallas. Gibbs is out after needing a metatarsal surgery while Gallas has an ankle injury.  Theo Walcott and Samir Nasir are set to play a role in the London derby.

Leading the Premiership with 5 points to the closest rival, qualify for the last 16 in the Champions League and playing at the top of their form, could Chelsea continue their winning streak without Frank Lampard? Chelsea have depth in the squad and that could bring the Premiership title back to Stamford Bridge since 2006. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has inherited a good bunch of players and now managing them looks simple. Ancoletti will be without Frank Lampard and Jose Bosingwa for the London derby. Michael Ballack and Deco are set to return to the starting lineup while Essien and Drogba are back after complains over receiving knocks in the midweek.

Massive brawl whenever these two teams meet and it will not be the last of it. Chelsea have the upper advantage going into this match, they beat Arsenal twice, 4-1 in the Premier League and 2-1 in the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger will be desperate to claim one over the Chelsea team as he wants to close the gap between them. A stalemate could be reached but without the inspirational Frank Lampard, anything can happen.

Premier League: Everton vs. Liverpool

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 25, 2009 at 11:06

By Joe,

Since the arrival of Fernando Torres to Liverpool, Everton fans have dreaded to see the Liverpool topscorer banging in goal at Goodison Park.

All the important matches are coming thick and thin for Liverpool as fight another day in the Premiership against their bitter rivals, Everton. The Merseyside derby is usually a pretty much heat affair with the Red side of Liverpool claiming an advantage when it comes to the Premier League matches. Both teams will do their best in order to get one over the other in the league.

Everton will have to go all the way back to 2006 to find a victory over Liverpool in the Premiership. That day they record a 3-0 win over Liverpool where Tim Cahill and Andrew Johnson were on target. Although, David Moyes will want to remember their recent 1-0 after extra time in the FA Cup last season as the benchmark going into this game. The Toffee manager will be with Phil Neville, Mikel Arteta, Phil Jagielka, Victor Anichebe, James Vaughan and Leon Osman. Fellaini & Bilyaletdinov will return back to the squad after serving a one match suspension against Hull.

Liverpool are going through rough times and maybe the game against their neighbors might have come a bit early. Manager Rafa Benitez will find it hard to keep his job if he loses to Everton and fall even more behind from a Champions League spot next season. They were dumped out of the Champions League in the midweek even though they beat Debreceni 1-0 away. Benitez will be hoping that Fernando Torres will return to the starting lineup after 3 weeks off with an ankle injury. Ryan Babel and Albert Riera are ruled doubtful to face Everton.

Don’t expect pretty football when these two teams meet on Sunday. We will be lucky if we will see some good football played at Goodison Park, it is more likely that yellow and red cards will be flying around instead. It will be a physical affair as both teams are desperate for three points while not for filling their potential.

Premier League: Tottenham vs. Wigan Athletic

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 19, 2009 at 10:57

By Joe,

Spurs are looking to brush Wigan aside to maintain their status at the top of the Premiership

Tottenham wants to break into the Big 4 domination in the Premiership and they are surely on the right track under Harry Redknapp’s helm. Wigan have seen tougher situation than they are dealing with at the moment. Manager Sanchez has done well at Wigan keeping them out of the relegation zone but tougher times are ahead as the season does not end in November. Both teams will have to continue what they set out to but there can be only one winner at the end of the day.

More Premiership review here

The North London team are searching for another three points at home to keep up with both Arsenal and league leader, Chelsea, at the top. It is not a surprise that Manager Harry Redknapp has leaded them to fight for a place amongst the Big 4 this season. They started on a high this season but fell back down to earth after a 3-0 defeat to their neighbors, Arsenal. Then a home win against Sunderland, a fortnight ago, has helped Spurs finding their confidence yet again. The bad news to hit the club is that keeper Cudicini has broken both his wrist and pelvis in a motorbike incident. Redknapp might not have the service of Aaron Lennon, Dos Santos, Bassong and Luka Modric as they are all ruled doubtful. Spurs have signed a teenage Sam Cox on a month long loan while Pavlyuchenko is looking for an exit at White Hart Lane.

Wigan will not be complaining much with their status in the Premiership. They are currently 13th in the league and 4 points from the relegation zone. They record away from home is somewhat perceived as what a mid table should be, 6 games play, 2 wins and 4 defeats. Their only two wins came against Aston Villa, in the season premiere, and last month 3-1 win against Burnley. Although, Tottenham will be a tougher opposition and Manager Sanchez will need to strengthen his men at the back. Titus Bramble looks bewildered in my situation during the game and Wigan should be worried if he has one of his moments. M. Figueroa will not travel to London as he is rule out with a knee ligament injury.

Spurs have spent more money than the big 4 this season and this really signs out the messages that if you want to be big team, you will need to spend some money, just look at Manchester City. The best result Wigan have got from White Hart Lane is a 2-2 result back in 2006, otherwise Spurs have the advantage. Their recent meeting ended with a 3-1 win with Roman Pavlyuchenko scoring 2 goals and one Luka Modric. Fortunately for Wigan, it is most likely that both players will not feature in the starting lineup but then again Wigan needs to contend with Jenas, Milner, Dafoe, Crouch and Keane. With this firepower on the Spurs team, they are favorites at home to beat mid table Wigan.

Premier League: Liverpool vs. Manchester City

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 17, 2009 at 14:28

By Joe,

Torres could set to return to face Manchester City in Anfield. The Spaniard would not mind scoring against City again.

Liverpool could not have asked a better time for the International break to intervene as their squad is struggling to knock off injuries and a string of disappointing results. They were the last Premiership team to play a game a fortnight ago and now they will have the honor to start the Premiership fixture as they face Manchester City at Anfield in a Saturday early afternoon kickoff. Both teams are in search for the three points to keep up with Chelsea at the top of the table.

Manager Rafa Benitez must be pinching himself just to make sure whether the injuries crisis situation with his squad is real. He lost Yossi Benayoun and Albert Riera for there to four week after getting injured in the 2-2 draw against Birmingham. Steven Gerrard made a comeback that night and he is expected to return against Manchester City. There is some doubts over Glen Johnsen, Daniel Agger and Fernando Torres as all of them have withdrew from national duties to nurse their injury. Jamie Carragher will return from his suspension and Fabio Aurelio is still out injured. Every game for Liverpool will be a FA cup feel to it as they trail league leaders, Chelsea, by 10 points. Benitez will have to come up with the good against Manchester City or else the next year’s Champions League spot could also be in danger.

Manchester City have drawn four of their last premiership matches and they could continue this streak at Anfield Road this Saturday. Manager Mark Hughes will look to change this trend City have embarked on. Their last match against Burnley revealed their defense loses concentration and marginal defensive errors which cost hem the victory. Hughes is hoping that star player Robinho could return to first team action and if not, there will be many others prepared to take his place. Martin Petrov, Craig Bellamy, Robinho, Nedum Onuoha and Benjani are all ruled out.

Liverpool looks more and more desperate each time they go on the field. Hopefully the Reds will be able to put out their strongest team to regain their last season’s good form. Manchester City will not worry too much of the issue Liverpool is dealing with, they will focus on their play and try to continue their quest in breaking into the big 4 domination in the Premiership. A win for either team could get their season on the way. Liverpool looks likely to fight for their lives to keep their hopes up.

Premier League: Chelsea vs. Manchester United

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on November 4, 2009 at 10:44

By Joe,

A clash of the Titans in the Premier League and could Manchester United take the number spot from Chelsea?

A titanic battle between the two leading teams in the Premiership and it will certainly be a hot affair this coming Sunday at Stamford Bridge. Both teams are successive through to the next round in their Champions League campaign which leaves the Premier League more of a priority this coming weekend. If all goes according to plan then this could be the first encounter between the coming Premier League champions.

Chelsea is currently leading the Premiership with 27 points with 11 matches played. Their home form is impeccable as they are unbeaten winning five matches out of five. Chelsea traveled to Spain and drew 2-2- against A. Madrid in the midweek. Manager Carlo Ancelotti will have a health squad going into this important tie with Alex, Ballack and Joe Cole returning back to full fitness. Salamon Kalou,  Bosingwa, Mikel and  Zhirkov are all ruled doubtful to face Manchester United.

Manchester United came from behind at Old Trafford to draw 3-3 against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League midweek tie. If you look closely into the lineup against Moscow then there were many fringe players that started and even newly father, Wayne Rooney, had to take a place on the bench. Sir Alex Ferguson will put his strongest team out and hopes to capture the number one spot in the Premier League by betting Chelsea. Ferguson will be without Ferdinand, Hargreaves, Park, Wellbeck through injuries while Gary Neville will serve his suspension.

Last time these two teams, they drew 1-1 at Stamford Bridge and a repeat of this result will be on many people’s mind. We have to go back all the way to 2002 to find a victory for Manchester United as Stamford Bridge while Chelsea last win over Manchester United was in 2009 with a 2-1 result. A safe bet on a draw is a must and both teams can’t afford to spoil their records of unbeaten runs home and away.

Premier League: Birmingham vs. Manchester City

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on October 30, 2009 at 14:40

By Joe,

Carson Yeung investing in Birmingham will help their cause to fight the relegation battle this season.

Cash injections and new players are one main topic among both teams that are meeting up in St. Andrews. Birmingham with Carson Yeung injecting £40million into the club is good news but that is dwarfed by the City’s sizeable amount spent in the post season by the rich Saudi owners.  With all the off the field headlines topping the news page, it is really the result on Sunday that will be remembered this season.

Last week, new owner millionaire Hong Kong businessman, Carson Yeung watched his team claim victory over Sunderland picking up their first win since August in the Premiership. Yenug promised Manger Alex McLeish that there will be money made available to spend so Birmingham will be looking forward to strengthen their team when the transfer window opens. McLeish will be without Bent, Espinoza, Murphy, Martin Taylor and Joe Hart as he is ineligible to play his former club while on loan. Fahey is ruled doubtful to face City.

Manchester City won 5-0 in the midweek against Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup. It is certainly a good warm match leading up to the Birmingham match for Mark Hughes’s men. Both Manchester City duo Kolo Toure and Martin Petrov missing out the midweek tie but they should return in time to face Birmingham. The only players who will not feature in the squad are Nedum Onuoha and Robinho. It looks like a strong attacking City team that will travel to St. Andrews.

Manchester City are favourites to collect three points in St. Andrews in the only Premiership match on Sunday. There is a serious competition for the two attacking places available on the starting line up and that could prove the edge for Manchester City. Birmingham will ride on their luck and hopefully overcome their scoring problem.

Premier League: Arsenal vs. Tottenham

In Barclays Premiership League, Football on October 29, 2009 at 11:20

By Joe,

The London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham will go into new heights as both teams are challenge for a top spot in the Premier League.

The north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham is one of the fiercest rivalries in the Premiership. Arsenal will be hosting their north London counterparts in the Emirates Stadium in a Saturday early afternoon kickoff. This year both teams are on the top of the table and they will fight it out for a place in the top of the league to challenge for Premiership title.

Arsenal have made a great start to their season in all fronts. In the midweek, they finished off Liverpool in the Carling Cup winning 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. It was virtually their second team who played but key members like Nicklas Bendter, who got the winner against Liverpool, Samir Nasri, Eduardo and Senderos got a run out. Manager Arsene Wenger will certainly re-call his usual starting eleven and hope to keep up with the pace -setters, Chelsea. Jack Wilshere , Theo Walcott, Denilson, Fabianski  and Tomas Rosicky are all ruled out to face Spurs.

Tottenham started their Premiership campaign fast and furious but last weekend, their 2-1 defeat to Stoke City at White Hart Lane put them back down on their feet. They are currently fourth in the Premier League level on points with Arsenal at 14. However, Arsenal have a better goal score. Spurs beat Everton 2-0 in the Carling Cup with Robbie Keane and Tom Huddlestone on the mark. They will certainly bring on their key players back for the short travel to the Emirates. Defoe is suspended for this game while Woodgate and Lennon are doubtful. Giovani and Modric will definitely not feature in the squad.

Last time these two teams met in a Premiership match at the Emirates, it ended 4-4 and 1-1 in 2008. Arsenal have a 100% win at the Emirates and could Tottenham go there to break this record?  Expect this derby match to go all crazy with red cards and goals. Arsenal are weak favorites at home against Spurs.
