THE PREMIER LEAGUE VERDICT :03

PREMIER LEAGUE  3

Hey guys..i am back. This time my article comes a bit early i.e. premier league 3 . We are done with gameweek 2. It was an interesting week. Only 22 goals. The biggest disappointment which personally left me in sordid mood was Burnley thrashing Liverpool. Totally unexpected. Even Leicester Arsenal game was a damp squib. No one could predict that. Ibra and Aguero maintained their hot streaks. Mirallas scored from a beautiful interplay but my favourite was Stuani’s 1st goal from long range. It  should be Goal of the week contender. So new week , new hopes!!! My take on all the action which will take place in Gameweek 3

1) TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS FC VS LIVERPOOL FC (5pm)  

WHITE HART LANE

JANSSEN                    COUTINHO
(4-2-3-1)                   (4-3-3)
PREDICTION: The biggest game of the weekend in premier league 3. LFC are facing arsenal, spurs and leicester in their opening 4 weeks. Incredible scheduling. This should be a tough match for both teams who are still finding their rhythm and consistency. It can go either way. If liverpool hit their top gear…they can come with three points..Spurs can also penetrate the leaky LFC defence. Past record suggests either draws or lfc wins. Spurs can break that trend.

SCORE: TOT 1-1 LIV (KANE COUTINHO)
TOT 1-2 LIV (FIRMINO LALLANA)

2) CHELSEA FC VS BURNLEY FC (7:30pm)

HAZARD                VOKES
COSTA                  GRAY
(4-2-3-1)             (4-4-2)
PREDICTION: Chelsea Chelsea all the way!!! Even though burnley beat liverpool last week in premier league 3…this will be too hard for them. They should be proud if they can come up with a draw which looks far from possible. Still u never know what will happen as this is football. Chelsea should breach the burnley defence atleast twice.
SCORE: CHE 2-0 BUR (COSTA HAZARD)
CHE 3-1 BUR (“GRAY)

(4-2-3-1)     (4-3-3)
PREDICTION: Incredibly Palace have not scored a single goal over 180 mins of football in premier league 3. They have called the emergency service and they have provided them CHRISTIAN BENTEKE. Oh my word…Over 30 million.Can he be the one to score the first palace goal..I believe he can..What about you????

LUKAKU              DIOUF
(4-2-3-1)           (4-2-3-1)
PREDICTION: This looks interesting. Without Jack Butland..Stoke conceeded 4 goals against city..they are yet to hit topgear. Everton have been more impressive..amassing 4 out of possible 6. They can win to make it 7 points under Koeman’s stewardship. Stoke should be resilient.
SCORE: EVE 1-1 STK (BARKLEY DIOUF)

PREDICTION: Southampton can win…Sunderland can lose!!!!!!Sorry but sunderland look like they are everyone’s bunny. Southampton are yet to record their 1st win. And they looks the most apt match. Sunderland under moyes will need time to settle especially when they are hampered by injuries to kirchoff, cattermole, kone, larrson and latest to oshea.

PREDICTION: Arsenal should finally have ozil and giroud back…maybe. But still it looks tough. Remember Watford had eliminated arsenal from Fa Cup last year. Interesting match . 1 pt for Arsenal till now. If they play their usual best they can comfortably win. Mazzari has to do some work. Wenger..Please sign someone….Plzzzz!!!

So this is my premier league 3 verdict on the third weekend action from EPL.Watch out the EFL cup third round matches tonight with many premier league 3 sides in action most notably Liverpool.Then we have the champions league final qualifying matches..same with the europa league. The most interesting Group stage draw. The devil within me says Arsenal FC will get a tough group. And then What we hate the most INTERNATIONAL USELESS FOOTBALL (IB)!!!! Survive it and we will meet soon!!!!!!
Till then Bye Bye.
