    Liverpool should prevail, however I'll take a draw.

    So no drubbing this time like 5-1 or 4-0 of last two encounters between these two at Anfield?

    To be honest, Arsenal barely escaped a trashing! It ended 3-1 but could have been 2, 3 more for Liverpool. Liverpool really showed the intensity that is nor becoming a defining feature of their game.

    Arsenal sure is work in progress and with Pepe, Aubameyang and Lacazette have the potential to be among most prolific attacking trio of PL. Expecting them to get better as they get more and more games together.

    As for David Luiz, i dont think it was just him. Liverpool were chasing the ball like mad dog and that put pressure on everyone. If you get a chance see the game again, to me it was one of Liverpool's best display of that pressing football - more dangerous when out of possession.

    Classico. They were totally up for it. I though am in doldrums at the moment. Old Trafford is still work in progress. 40 years supporter of ManU and these are troubling times. Pogba has got the wanderlust and I am not sure how long we can rely on him . Need some of the youngsters from the academy to make their mark
    Its going to be a difficult season for us

    Yes the defense is leaky, i think they will try to address it in January. The attack have been revitalized over two three transfer windows and IF these three can start clicking and fitting in together they can potentially outscore the opposition is most of the matches they play.

    Manchester United will need multiple new players and that is always a problem (and takes time to click)

    :lol:

    Liverpool dominated the UEFA award for 2018/19 given in a ceremony help at Champions League draw for 2019/20 season.

    Liverpool goal keep Allison Becker was awarded best goal keeper of the season while the Liverpool center back Virgil Van Dijk won the defender of the season award. The Liverpool No. 4 then returned to stage to be awarded UEFA player of the season award as well, beating Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Great day for Liverpool and all its fans!!

    We are done with just game week 4 and we already had a classic game of football. Arsenal vs Spurs lived up to the hype and produced a stunning and beautiful game of football with Arsenal coming from two goal down to secure a point. While the end result 2-2 may not sound that exciting, second part of second half after Arsenal have scored their second was excellent with tremendous pressure mounted on by Arsenal. Great game.

    In second game on Sunday, Everton beat Wolves 3-2 at Goodison park as Richarlison scored his first goal of the season 5 minutes into the game and got his second one and the winning goal at around 80 minute mark.

    In other games played on Saturday August 31, 2019 , Manchester City made it look easy against Brighton beating them 4-0 while Liverpool continued with their perfect start to the season beating Burnley at Truf Moor 3-0, ending up with their first clean sheet of the season. Chelsea and Manchester United were both left frustrated as both let go of lead in the game to end up with draw against Shefield United (2-2) and Southampton (1-1). Leicester City beat Bournemouth at home 3-1 to remain unbeaten this season while Aston Villa were handed their third defeat of the season, losing 1-0 to Crystal Palace away from home. Game between New Castle and Watford ended 1-1 while Westham United beat Norwich City two goals to nil.

    Liverpool remain top of the league table with 12 out of 12 points while Manchester City and Leicester City are at second and third spot with 10 and 8 points respectively.

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

    Just completed writing the post :P

    Check the post above yours please.

    Cannot say much about united right now. They didnt have started great but its still too early in the season. Lets wait till game 8-10 and then may be we will have a better idea.
