First-class Football Action Awaits In EPL Gameweek 8

A preview of what is to come in the Premier League Gameweek 9

The Premier League is back after a week of no action. The English FA had announced the cancellation of Gameweek’s 7 matches in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s death as a mark of respect.

There was always the sense that, for all of Arsenal’s early brilliance in the Premier league this season, there was still a level to attain.

Against Manchester United, their first real test, it showed exactly that. The Gunners did not perform poorly, but they simply were not effective.

Thomas Tuchel has now become the second managerial casualty in the league this term after six Gameweeks. The Chelsea coach was fired a day after his side lost disappointingly to Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League opener. Of course, the results domestically had not been stellar.

Thomas Tuchel paid the price for Chelsea’s tepid start to the season

Graham Potter, who did a magnificent job a Brighton has now succeeded him. And with £250m already spent, the English manager will need to pass on quickly his football knowledge to the players and get the right results.

Some super fixtures are set for this weekend, including the London derby.
