The international break is now over and the English Premier League is back this weekend!
Fans have a lot to look forward to with two days of games on the schedule. However, despite the intrigues in every game, some games sure stand out from the rest.
Here are five games to look out for this weekend:
Liverpool Vs. Arsenal
- When: Saturday, 6 p.m.
In Saturday’s Premier League title decider, Liverpool will present a stiff challenge to Arsenal’s resurgence.
In spite of a humiliating 5-0 loss at Manchester City in August, Arsenal has surprisingly emerged as the Premier League’s form team. An eight-game unbeaten run in the Premier League has silenced critics after Arsenal suffered the defeat.
Liverpool, however, stands as a major challenge to Arsenal’s revival, especially as the Reds are desperate to bounce back after two league games without a win.
Watford Vs. Manchester United
- When: Saturday, 4 p.m.
In the wake of the international break, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was able to take a breather. However, Manchester United is facing an away trip to Watford, putting the Ole again under significant pressure.
Following the high-profile signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane, Solskjaer was expected to lead United to their first English title since 2013.
It, however, has been difficult for the United boss to utilise his star-studded side, resulting in a series of devastating losses including Liverpool’s 5-0 demolition of Old Trafford and a 2-0 loss to Manchester City.
Aston Villa Vs. Brighton & Hove Albion
- When: Saturday, 4 p.m.
Steven Gerrard also makes his return to the Premier League this weekend. The Liverpool legend will lead Aston Villa against Brighton in his first game as a manager.
Gerrard’s reputation as a manager is only just getting started, thus, he needs a quick start at VillaSteven. Gerrard spent three and a half years restoring Rangers to the status of Scottish champions as his first managerial role. For Gerrard, however, proving himself in the Premier League is crucial as he looks to move to Liverpool, his dream job.
