WEEKEND REVIEW

With major leagues in Europe waiting to kick off next week the English premier league kicked off this past weekend with very entertaining & exciting matches the nine months road to may  2019 proved to be very long and hard for Manchester united who really struggled to win against 2016 champions Leicester city 2-0 with goals from Paul Pogba’s penalty and luke shaw solo effort Friday night gave  three points to the red devils  even though united are struggling with injuries of major players like Herera,Antonio Valencia,Segio Romero,Nemanja matic & new signing Diego Dalot match fitness has proved to be a major issue for Jose Mourinho who had to leave out Jesse lingard and Phil jones out of the first league squad.

Arsenal vs Manchester city was the match of the weekend as Sterling and Bernado silva gave the champions a dream start and proved stronger than Arsenal after beating the gunners 2-0 away at emirates, although the new manager assured fans that this was just the first match against a strong city side for Arsenal to catch up with them, it will take more than a change of manager. Unai Emery, in charge of his competitive game as Arsenal head coach, made some mistakes along the way.The decision to play the French kid Matteo Guendouzi in the centre of midfield, up against the formidable duo of Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho, was one of them. He was overwhelmed in there. They next face Chelsea in the London derby, for Guadiola its business as usual as they look to continue their good start.

Liverpool have continued to prove that they mean business this season and are already considered favorites for the title ahead of Manchester city after hammering Westham 4-0 in their first match at Anfield,  African boys Sadio Mane & Mohammed Salah were behind the attack that shut down westham united there high spending this summer on major transfer targets Naby keita, shaqiri, goalkeeper Alison and the strong squad they have was what they really needed to place themselves on top of the table on goal difference

After their loss in the community shield to Manchester city last week Chelsea were ruthless against Huddersfield on Saturday after beating them 3-0 away from home, world cup winner Ngolo kante, Joghinho and Pedro got the goals for the blues who looked comfortable during the entire match, Willian & Hazard provided the assist the two have been a long target for Real Madrid and Barcelona during the just ended transfer window but we are yet to have a battle between the European clubs for the two stars come January when the window reopens.

Without a single signing in this transfer window Tottenham hotspurs edged out Newcastle united 2-1 with goals from Jan vertonhem and Dele Ali finished the job, Bonemouth beat newly promoted side Cardiff   2-0, Fulham went two goals down at home to crystal palace, Watford beat Brighton and hove albion 2-0, Wolves and Everton settled on a nil nil draw so did Southampton and Burnley.
