Things are heating up intensely in the English Premier League– the contenders and pretenders are just about beginning to reveal themselves. There is, even more, to expect in Gameweek 7’s football action this weekend.
Who would have thought that both North London teams, Tottenham and Arsenal would be experiencing contrasting fortunes after six match days? Well, not many, it would seem.
Tottenham began the season with three wins out of three, scoring three goals without conceding. Yet, in the last three matches, the Spurs have lost by three goals each and scored just one.
On the other hand, Arsenal lost its opening three matches. However, the Gunners have now won their last three matches, conceding just one.
Another top-drawer encounter beckons this Sunday. Two of the best coaches in the world- Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola will face off once again.
Review of Gameweek 6
As predicted, there was plenty to enjoy in terms of excitement and drama from the previous Gameweek.
The football action began in the best way possible as Manchester City overcame Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. To be fair, the result didn’t do justice to how dominant the Premier League Champions were on the day.
Manchester United was stunned at Old Trafford by Aston Villa who claimed a 1-0 win. Bruno Fernandes missed a late penalty in the process.
Jamie Vardy was both the hero and villain in Leicester City’s 2-2 draw with Burnley as Everton enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win at home against Norwich City who is yet to get a point this season.
Michail Antonio scored a late goal in West Ham’s 2-1 win away at Leeds United as Watford and Newcastle shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw.
Brentford forced Liverpool to an entertaining 3-3 draw as Raul Jimenez scored his first Premier League goal of the season in Wolves’ 1-0 win against Southampton.
Arsenal asserted dominance against their neighbours Tottenham with a comfortable 3-1 win.
Neal Maupay scored with the last kick of the game to earn his Brighton side a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace.
Preview Of Gameweek 7
The line-up of fixtures for this weekend spells plenty of drama and excitement.
It doesn’t get bigger than a Saturday lunchtime action between Manchester United and Everton. The Toffees will hope to take advantage of a lack of freshness of the Red Devils who were in action in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.
Chelsea will be desperate to return to winning ways when it faces Southampton at home as Wolves take on Newcastle.
Burnley takes on Norwich who are fast becoming the whipping boys of the Premier League as Leeds hosts Watford.
Arsenal faces a tricky encounter against Brighton at the Falmer stadium. This fixture ended with a dramatic late win for the Seagulls last season.
Tottenham will hope to replicate its Europa Conference League form when Aston Villa comes visiting.
West Ham takes on Brentford on Sunday Afternoon in what is a London derby as Crystal Palace square up against Leicester City who also lost on the road in the Europa League.
Gameweek 7’s action will reach a climax when Liverpool welcome Manchester City to Anfield.
