    Opening this new thread so all discussion related to the current English Premier League season can continue here. At the end of the season we will merge this thread with the general English Premier League thread and start a new one for next season. This will we can avoid creating multiple threads and will still have a place to discuss the ongoing games in a separate thread

    The 2019/20 season in underway. Liverpool off to a winning start have also added the UEFA Super Cup to their trophy cabinet. :)


    P.S. Any one playing Fantasy Premier League please join the league and share your team name.

    Irony: A Manchester United supporter "celebrating" the claim that Manchester City will win the title this season after just ONE game week. :D

    Tells a lot about Manchester United :P



    As for Liverpool, they are still good. Yes they had a quite transfer window but there were no real changes required after last season and with some academy players showing promise, they have decent back up in place. Not saying it will be easy to beat Man City but it will be between City, Liverpool and may be Spurs. You can just relax :P

    Depends. Signs from the first game were encouraging, especially how solid the defence line looks with the addition of Maguire and Bisaka. However this team is built around a counter attacking strategy. If the opponent parks the bus, i dont see enough individual quality in the likes of Rashford, martial or lingard to break down defences. Pogba is inconsistent. Top four this season is possible but winning is a far shot.

    Top four for Manchester United will be a HUGE WIN for them. I don't think it will happen.

    Manchester City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal!! Which one of these will Manchester United replace in top four? Chelsea, Leicester City will be good too. Even Everton and Watford may give ManU some problems in my opinion.

    Arsenal start 2-0, however 2 huge tests coming up. Liverpool and spurs. I predict they will go 1-1, and end up 3w and 1L

    True! Takes the fun out of the game really. However perhaps we will be no so against it once it corrects one or two major refereeing mistakes.

    Boss hand ball rule is required. However using VAR and ruling that even if the handball was unintentional still its a foul if it leads to a goal is not helping the game.

    Still, i think that once VAR picks out on or two key decision and make them right, people will accept it.


    Oh BTW, Game Week 3 brings us Arsenal vs Liverpool! :)
    Any thoughts on what result it will bring?
