Week seven is here and guess what? There’s ANOTHER pointless international break coming after it! Premier League 2021/22 matches will once again be shown by pay-TV broadcasters Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and with match highlights available free on BBC Sport with Match of the Day. Need a Premier League VPN?
Confusion reigns around the quarantine rules, as players go on international duty and come back to their clubs. Many clubs face the possibility of losing players for two Premier League games after the break as they will have to travel to red listed countries. Last time around, multiple clubs stood together to present a united front and block players going on international duty. This time it appears that the players will be forced to go with their national teams creating massive issues on their return. Making it worse, there will be another international break in November to create more havoc. International football during a pandemic. Mark that down as a really stupid idea. Fun Fact: Premier League VPN is one of the most searched phrases on Google.
The Liberty Shield Premier League preview returns to whet your appetite with our pick of the three games that you have to watch this weekend.
⚽ Brighton vs Arsenal
📅 Saturday 2 October 2021
⏰ 1730 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live IPTV Streaming
This one promises to be an entertaining game as both teams, and both managers, want to play an attacking brand of football. Arsenal have turned their season around with three straight wins that followed the three defeats they began their season with. Wins over Norwich and Burnley, the bottom two, were not all that notable. Neither are good and Arsenal should beat them no matter what. It was still hard to get a read on the Gunners after both games because they had won without being impressive, and could easily have ended both games with draws. However, their performance in the first half against Tottenham was sensational. For the first 40 minutes, Arsenal were fantastic. Aggressive, progressive, high tempo football blew Spurs away. They were 3-0 up and it really could have been five or six. They tore Spurs apart at will with Emile Smith Rowe, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka all flourishing. Thomas Partey put together his best performance in an Arsenal shirt and the back four played on the front foot and bullied the Tottenham attack. If Arsenal could maintain that level of performance, they’d be a real threat for a Europa League spot this season. Unfortunately, the second half wasn’t as good. They did hold Spurs to just one goal but needed a great save from Ramsdale, a bad miss from Kane and the referee ignoring what seemed like a certain penalty to hold the two goal advantage. For all their brilliant play in that first half, the game could have ended in a draw that Spurs would not have deserved. The job for Arteta is to turn 40 great minutes into 60 great minutes, then 90 great minutes. Consistency and sustained levels will be key to him keeping his job because nobody would bet against Arsenal going on a run of losing another three in a row.
Brighton have started the season in great form and sit just one point off the top of the table. Had they beaten Crystal Palace last weekend, they would currently sit top. Graham Potter, in year three, has established an interesting tactical plan that plays on the odds. Brighton limit opponents to low percentage shots, and create high percentage chances for themselves. They still lack a real cutting edge in attack because Neal Maupay, Leandro Trossard and others are quality players but they’re not out and out goalscorers. They’re better suited to playing off a true number nine. For now, Potter has to make do with what he has but I’d bet he often casts a glance at Arsenal’s stable of strikers and wonders what his team could do with any of Lacazette, Nketiah and Balogun, none of whom currently start for the Gunners as Aubameyang takes the starting spot. A win over the Gunners would be a statement victory for Brighton this season as it would keep them right in the mix, and even at this early part of the season that is impressive for Potter and the Seagulls.
⚽ West Ham vs Brentford
📅 Sunday 3 October 2021
⏰ 1430 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live IPTV Streaming
Last season I dedicated a slot each week to watching Leeds United, because Bielsa, Bielsa, Bielsa. This season, Brentford are in that slot. There’s just so much to like about this team, and indeed the club as a whole. They are well run, they have a fantastic recruitment department, they’re brilliantly coached and they play an entertaining style of football that can be adapted to suit the style of the opposition. Watch their games against Wolves and Liverpool, they were fantastic in both but played a different way in both games. Key to that is centre forward Ivan Toney. Having worked his way up through the divisions, Toney has been on fire since joining Peterborough in 2018. He banged in goals for The Posh at an incredible rate, and then carried that to Brentford in 2020. Last season he torched the Championship. His 31 goals was a new Championship record, and he also scored two goals in the playoffs to see Brentford into the Premier League. He has started this season in the same vein. Two goals and two assists already, and multiple man of the match awards to go with it. His performances against Wolves and Liverpool were equally brilliant, but totally different. West Ham will present another different test for the striker and it will be interesting to see how does up against the physical challenge of Kurt Zouma and Angelo Ogbonna.
West Ham have set out to show that last season was not a fluke and have already showed that they have real quality in their team. They backed David Moyes in the transfer market this past summer and gave themselves a squad that could maintain what they did last season, while also competing in the Europa League where they have won their first two games. Michail Antonio is the leading man for the Hammers but their real quality is in midfield. Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are one of the best double pivots in the Premier League, and having the chance to pick three from Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma, Pablo Fornals and new signing Nikola Vlasic is a great luxury to have. The Hammers have scored the second most goals this season, and their performance against Leicester was a major statement. They also matched Manchester United and deserved at least a point from the game. David Moyes has done a tremendous job since returning to the Hammers and having been robbed of his deserved Manager of the Year last season he is already setting out his case to be given the award this season.
⚽ Liverpool vs Manchester City
📅 Sunday 3 October 2021
⏰ 1630 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live IPTV Streaming
This is the game of the season so far. The two best teams in the country since January 2018 will go head to head at Anfield on Sunday in what should be a fantastic game as the clash of styles put forward by Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola always creates entertainment. The two managers have enjoyed a fantastic rivalry dating back to their time in the Bundesliga but since they both landed in the Premier League it has intensified. In 21 games between the managers, the record sits at eight wins apiece with five draws but at their current clubs Klopp has won five to Pep’s four, with four draws. Liverpool will point to their complete lack of central defenders as the reason for their defeat last season, and in 2020 they had already won the title and were likely still drunk from the celebrations as they took a hammering at the Etihad.
Liverpool’s start to the season has been impressive and they have scored at least three goals in each of their last six matches. Only Chelsea have avoided defeat against the Reds across the Premier League, League Cup and Champions League. Liverpool come into this game without Thiago and Trent Alexander-Arnold which is a concern, especially with Naby Keita also struggling for fitness in midfield. Curtis Jones impressed against Porto in midweek and likely retains his position alongside Fabinho and the out of form Jordan Henderson. Klopp will need his captain to have a much better game against City, especially with James Milner filling in at right back. Liverpool know that if they’re at their best they should win this game. City are to be respected but not feared as they were a few years ago.
City for their part have had a strange start to the season. Weirdly flat performances against Tottenham, Southampton and PSG are a concern, and the fact that the attack is yet to really sparkle on a regular basis. They hammered Norwich who have lost all six Premier League games this season, a 10-man Arsenal side who were lost at the time, and League One side Wycombe, while winning a highscoring game against Leipzig. All of those games were wide open, and City took advantage. In tighter games like the three mentioned, as well as games against Leicester and Chelsea, City have really struggled to create chances. Jack Grealish has not impressed in the majority of his starts since joining for £100mil and really does need a statement performance to begin to show his value. City did beat Chelsea, and did play well for the most part, but in the final third things broke down too often. Liverpool won’t give them many chances, they’ll need to take the ones that come their way.
