Manchester City vs Fulham Summary

Considering Man City were smashing the Premier League and securing 100 points two seasons ago, the drop off has been far more significant that many could imagine so far this season. Despite a game-in-hand, City have already lost twice this season and have dropped points on three occasions. Playing catchup in a season as unpredictable as this might not be a bad thing however, and City looked more like their usual self against Burnley last time out, putting five past the Clarets.

For Fulham, their 2-1 win against Leicester showed they can see out difficult periods of games against tough opposition. Having been the better side for most of the game, the defensive line still were very close to being punished, which would be been a huge psychological blow if they had not picked up all three points at the King Power Stadium. It was their first away win of the season and with seven points on the board, Scott Parker and the Cottagers can take confidence going into the festive period that they can collect points on the road.

Manchester City Team News and Form

Following Man City’s recent 5-0 win against Burnley, it would be difficult to expect anything other than a similar performance from The Citizens against the worst defence in the league (17 goals conceded in 10 games). Pep Guardiola’s men have put the Leicester result behind them and have won four of their last five matches at the Etihad, with their only points being dropped against Liverpool in a 1-1 draw.

After a heavy period of injuries being picked up, it seems the likes Sergio Aguero is the only injury concern for now for Pep Guardiola after his knee has not fully recovered. With that in mind, Gabriel Jesus is likely to make another start down the middle, whilst the recently recovered Benjamin Mendy will look to make it two goals in two games.

Fulham Team News and Form

It looks like Fulham has finally proved the critics after their impressive 2-1 win against Leicester City last time out. The significance of holding onto that win was massive for Scott Parker’s side as the Cottagers face Liverpool after this rather one-sided clash against Man City. It is an opportunity to see how resilient this Fulham side are becoming, with their number of goals conceded finally decreasing.

Fulham should be able to field as close to a first choice lineup as possible as they don’t have many injuries at the moment. Kenny Tete, suffering from the calf injury, is the only one of three concerns for Scott Parker, with fellow Dutchman Terence Kongolo and former Spurs youngster player Josh Onomah also missing through injury.

Top Goalscorers

Man City’s Top Goalscorer

  • Riyad Mahrez (4 Premier League goals this season) – Mahrez has started seven of his nine Premier League games for Man City this season. His stunning hat-trick has been the headline of the last week, and he is certainly now under the radar as the fans simply want more masterclass from the agile Algerian.
  • Gabriel Jesus (2 Premier League goals this season) – The Brazilian has so far spent more time in the rehabilitation centre rather than on the pitch as he has played less than 50% of his games this season. However, with Sergio Aguero still missing the game time due to his injury, he is yet again expected to start from the first minute for the fourth consecutive game. Moreover, he has contributed to two goals in his last three league matches.

Fulham’s Top Goalscorers

  • Bobby Reid (3 Premier League goals this season) – The Jamaican has had an impressive start to the season and recently has been registering high notes from the critics. He has won the penalty last game and scored an equalizer against Everton. However, his nominal position is still under the question as Scott Parker is still experimenting with the 27-year-old on many positions; these include: right-winger, left-winger, attacking midfield, striker and most recently right-back.
  • Ademola Lookman (2 Premier League goal this season) – The Englishman has impressed many this season with his on-pitch performance and maturity which he developed in Everton and then in Leipzig. Although the Englishman is currently on loan at Fulham, he has certainly caught an eye of many in the club and beyond. The question now is If Fulham have enough quality to maintain in the English top-tier which could be decisive in extending Lookman’s stay in London for another season or more. After all, he has been involved in three goals in his seven total Premier League appearances and has been crucial in storming opponents’ defence on the left-wing so far this season.

Match Facts

  • Man City haven’t conceded a single goal in their last five games against Fulham.
  • Fulham have missed scoring only once in their last five games.
  • Fulham have won only one away game this season, which was against Leicester on 30th November. The final result of the game was 2-1 for The Cottagers.
  • Scott Parker’s team has confronted Guardiola’s men two times in the past. All of these confrontations have ended as a defeat for the Englishman so far.

Okan’s Betting Tips

Man City Win to Nil 8/13*

Man City has secured five clean sheets in their last five meetings against Fulham. Man City have scored at least once in every home league match so far this season.

Fulham have failed to score in three of their last five away matches in the Premier League. Fulham have failed to score in their last six visits to the Etihad Stadium.

Fulham has also the worst defence in the league, conceding 17 goals in 10 league games. Fulham have kept just one clean sheet from their first 10 Premier League games this season.

Man City First Half Over 1.5 Goals 23/20*

Man City has shown us their love for early goals this season. They have scored 10 first-half goals in nine league games so far, including three first-half goals against Burnley last time out.

Fulham have conceded nine first half goals so far this season. In their last defeat, they conceded three first half goals to Everton.

Everton vs Liverpool Summary

Carlo Ancelotti and James Rodriguez are back again working together and we are seeing the fruits of their labour week in and week out. The team needs to keep this run alive to make a good name for themselves after years of struggle. European Cups are within the reach; sitting in first and averaging 3.00 PPG is what all the fans have ever wanted. However, it is the long run that will verify if the team is ready for the top six this season.

Liverpool is one of several teams who needed the international break following their shameful 7-2 defeat against Aston Villa. Klopp’s men were chaotic, with no plan of executing the attacks and very unprofessional in the defence. However, it is Liverpool we are talking about, a team who once in a while stumbles but usually comes back even stronger. We have all witnessed this on multiple occasions in recent seasons.

Everton Team News and Form

The Toffees have been back to back securing big wins this season. They are unbeaten in EFL Cup and Premier League so far and have given us plenty of reasons to root for them. The times of mid-table spots and problems with qualifying to European Cups might be over with them looking stronger than ever.

The confrontation against Liverpool will be a big test for the Everton side. It is all roses until you face a worthy opponent who not only has won Premier League last season but also was the latest English side to win Champions League and UEFA Super Cup in one season.

Everton is an enormous threat offensively, but they still have some things to improve in front of their own goal. That’s why they have transferred Ben Godfrey for 20 million pounds from Norwich City. It is an exciting signing and will let us forget about Mason Holgate’s injury, which weakened The Toffees defensively for a while.

Liverpool Team News and Form

October hasn’t been the most pleasant of the months for Liverpool so far. They have lost to Arsenal in EFL Cup and to Aston Villa in an outrageous 7-2 result. Hopefully, after the storm, the sun will shine again for stumbling Klopp’s men. They have started the season very well, with nine goals and nine points in the first three league games. The question is can they get back on their feet and put on a show we are all accustomed to.

The pressure is bigger than ever as it is an away game and not even a regular one. It is a derby match in which stakes are higher. All the fans want their side to succeed, but would that be possible for The Reds following their latest lack of form?

Allison’s injury has weakened Liverpool massively. They expect the Brazilian to be out for up to six weeks, according to Klopp. Sadio Mane and Thiago both have tested positive last month, but now they have returned to training. It is now the dilemma of whether both players are fit enough to face Everton.

Top Goalscorers

Everton Top Goalscorers

  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin (6 Premier League goals this season) – Nobody expected to see the Englishman to bag so many from the start of the new season. Transfers of Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan and James “The Maestro” Rodriguez has helped him a lot offensively so far. With the help of his colleagues, he is the leading scorer of Premier League.
  • James Rodriguez (3 Premier League goals this season) – The Colombian’s transfer to Everton was in big question. He proved to us that with the trust of Carlo Ancelotti and excellent chemistry with the fellow teammates, he can do great things. James has scored three goals and recorded two assists.

Liverpool Top Goalscorers

  • Mohamed Salah (5 Premier League goals this season) – The Egyptian has started the season promisingly. Five goals in four matches is an excellent record. With only one goal difference to Heung-Min Son and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, he will want to put his hand on another Premier League golden boot.
  • Sadio Mane (3 Premier League goals this season) – Mane has been crucial for the Liverpool side, despite Mohamed Salah being the name of the headlines so far.

Source: Transfermarkt

Match Facts

  • Liverpool have conceded seven goals in their last matchweek.
  • Everton have scored the most goals (12) in Premier League so far.
  • Everton are unbeaten in nine games so far.
  • Last time Everton has won against Liverpool was on 17th October 2010 – exactly one decade before.

Okan’s Betting Tips

Everton averages 3.00 GPG while Liverpool averages 2.75 GPG. Both teams to score is 1/2* with Mark Jarvis.

Everton has scored 14 out of 24 goals in the second half in all competitions this season. They have gone blank in the second half only once so far. Everton to score in the second half is 4/5* with Mark Jarvis.

The reason for this tip is very obvious. Liverpool have conceded seven goals last time out and the Englishman is a top scorer with six goals to his name. Dominic Calvert-Lewin to scorer anytime in the game is 6/4* with Mark Jarvis.

Man Utd vs Spurs: Predictions, Betting Tips and Odds – Can Man Utd seal a first home win this season? (04/10/2020)


Man Utd hosts Mourinho’s side at Old Trafford this Sunday Afternoon. Man Utd will look to secure three points after their clumsy start against Crystal Palace and a tough win against Brighton. Okan Iskin previews this clash, which has always proven to provide a huge portion of rivalry.

Man Utd vs Spurs Summary

Man Utd was supposed to aim big this season but their on-pitch performance leaves much to be desired; they have conceded five goals in the last two league games. It is the same old story with Ole’s side. Last season has also started slowly with them averaging 1.30 PPG in the first 10 games. Perhaps Donny van de Beek could be the answer for Man Utd, who have been struggling with the alternatives in the midfield for some time now.

Spurs have lost to Everton in the first game week but quickly got back with striking 5-2 result against Southampton and then 1-1 against Newcastle. Mourinho’s side hasn’t also been on their best lately If not counting outstanding performances from the likes of Kane or Son in the 5-2 win.

Man Utd Team News and Form

Fully deserved 3rd place last season has seemed to be the start of something big for Man Utd, a hope of greater times to come. With the transfer market being massively affected by COVID-19, the fans expected at least a few signings to strengthen very lacking defence and create more alternatives up-front. However, the club has signed only Donny van de Beek from Ajax and the rest is still a mystery.

Man Utd has the home advantage, and it should be splendid news for the fans. The team has failed to score twice last season at Old Trafford. This season hasn’t started off the best with a loss against Crystal Palace, therefore this should be an amazing opportunity to redeem themselves.

Man Utd should start with the same old eleven. However, following Donny van de Beek’s impressive performance in the EFL Cup, I can see him starting from the first minutes this time around.

Spurs Team News and Form

Spurs have started off very mediocre this season, but the expectations can’t be as big as in case of Man Utd. They have had excellent results in post-lockdown which ultimately translated into 6th place, but it could have gone a lot worse. I believe the new transfers to be the medicine for Spurs, who have been craving for their top4 return for some time now. The club has penned contracts with Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty, Hojbjerg and the club legend Gareth Bale on loan.

Last season has proven several times that Spurs are not performing well in away games, where they have averaged a very disappointing 1.05 PPG compared to 2.05 PPG at home. They have also conceded seven goals in the last five away game in Premier League.

Heung Min-Son got diagnosed with thigh problems and Gareth Bale is still recovering from his injury. We expect both players to come back within two to three weeks.

Top Goalscorers

Man Utd Top Goalscorers

  • Bruno Fernandes (1 Premier League goal this season) – Bruno’s crucial goal and assist in a 3-2 win against Brighton last time out proved once again his importance for Red Devils.
  • Marcus Rashford (1 Premier League goal this season) – The Englishman has scored his first Premier League goal this season against Brighton, while Anthony Martial is still struggling to find the net.

Spurs Top Goalscorers

  • Hueng Min-Son (4 Premier League goals this season) – The Korean has put on a breath-taking performance against Southampton with four goals scored in less than 30 minutes. The sad news is that the agile winger has suffered an injury in the next match against Newcastle and will be out for at least another two to three weeks.
  • Harry Kane (1 Premier League goals this season) – The famous ‘Hurricane’ has stormed Premier League with assists rather than with goals. He has recorded five assists and scored only one goal in the league so far.

Brighton vs Man Utd: Predictions, Betting Tips and Odds – Will Brighton extend their impressive run with another win against a leggy United side? (26/09/2020)


After a clumsy start of the season, Man Utd faces Brighton at the AMEX Stadium this Saturday.

Brighton vs Man Utd Summary

It’s the opening game of the third match week where Brighton hosts Man Utd at AMEX Stadium. The most recent confrontation has ended 3-0 for Man Utd and it would mean splendid news If Ole’s men could repeat that same feat.

Brighton has won three out of 12 confrontations against the ‘Big Six’ last season and If never it is the best time for The Seagulls to seal another win. The advantage of playing at home, Man Utd’s poor form in pre-season and now in Premier League and Brighton’s impressive run could be the big factors affecting the result.

It is the same old story with Man United who has also lost to Crystal Palace in Premier League at the beginning of last season. They have also produced only three wins out of 10 possible at this time of the competition last season. However, starting with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and new signing, Donny van de Beek from the get-go of the Premier League campaign could translate into positive results.

Brighton Team News and Form

It will please Graham Potter that his side took positives from their first day defeat to Chelsea. They played fairly well and caused Frank Lampard’s men a lot of problems on the night despite the 3-1 scoreline for the Blues. The Seagulls are coming off the back on a 3-0 away win at Newcastle United, with an explosive start at St James’s Park, seeing Brighton race into a quick two-goal lead inside seven minutes.

With Manchester United still not at 100% match sharpness, Potter’s men will seek this match as an opportunity to make it back-to-back wins and make the early season statement that they are not a team that are going to be fighting relegation.

Unfortunately for the south coast club, they will be without Yves Bissouma, who received a red card late on against Newcastle. Other than Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo, Brighton have a healthy squad at their disposal.

Man Utd Team News and Form

Despite the clumsy start last season, Man Utd have domestically played their second-best Premier League season since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013. We expect nothing less from Ole’s men who have set the bar higher since finishing 3rd in the league and reaching semi-finals in the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.

Man Utd have lost none of their last five away games in the league in which they have registered an impressive 2.20 GPG, kept four clean sheets and conceded only one goal. They did eventually get the better of Luton Town in the EFL Cup earlier in the week, but once again the signs were clear that the squad players at United are not good enough.

The pressure is mounting on the board not only from the fans but also ex-players, including Patrice Evra. Anything but a win here could ignite another frustrating feud between the board and the fans about the lack of investment in the squad.

Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe are out for Solskjaer’s men. The pressure is mounting on the centre-back pairing of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, who will hope to perform well on the south coast.

Top Goalscorers

Brighton Top Goalscorers:

  • Neal Maupay (10 Premier League goals last season) – The Frenchman has bagged a doublet against Newcastle in the last Premier League fixture. He has been extremely crucial for Brighton ever since joining from Brentford one year ago.
  • Leandro Trossard (5 Premier League goals last season) – The Belgian has scored Brighton’s first goal in Premier League this season. He is a very versatile player who has no problem to play on either both wings or up-front paired up with Neal Maupay.

Man Utd Top Goalscorers:

  • Anthony Martial (17 Premier League goals last season) – Man Utd’s very own number nine has had the best season in his career so far. He has scored 23 goals in all competitions in total and now certainly looks ahead to breaking this record.
  • Marcus Rashford (17 Premier League goals last season) – The Englishman has been a strong figure in Ole’s squad last season and despite playing most of the season on the left wing he has scored the same amount of goals as Martial.

Man Utd have scored two or more goals in four out of five last games played against Brighton. Get United to score Over 1.5 goals is 4/5* with Mark Jarvis.

Basaksehir vs Galatasaray: Predictions, Betting Tips and Odds – El Tigre to lead Galatasaray to another important victory? (20/09/2020)


It is this time of the season when we can all just sit, relax and enjoy the first Istanbul derby in 2020/21. Both teams will face each other this Sunday at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium with high hopes of sealing an important win in this one.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Galatasaray Summary

It is Basaksehir versus Galatasaray and the first Istanbul derby of the season Turkish fans have been all waiting for. After a disappointing start of the season, Basaksehir will try to redeem themselves against Galatasaray who unlikely to last year’s champions have started the season with three points.

Basaksehir’s defensive fortress accompanied by a huge offensive threat up-front has translated into an impressive home record of 12-4-1 last season. The team doesn’t loose easily and I can see them make things a lot harder for Radamel Falcao, looking to add another goal to his name.

Galatasaray is on their way of making things better for them since suffering an enormous setback on the home stretch last season. They will play the clash against Basaksehir outside of their comfort zone at Fatih Terim Stadium, but since their impressive start to the season I can see them giving hard time to the current Super Lig champions.

Istanbul Basaksehir Team News and Form

What a season it has been for Istanbul Basaksehir… Not only they have sealed their first-ever Super Lig trophy in the 30 years of the club’s existence but also have secured a direct promotion to Champions League group stage. All of this begs the question If they can keep on performing effectively for the next consecutive season.

The team hasn’t started the season very well with a 2-0 defeat against Hatayspor. The fact it was an away game could slightly make up for it, as they have been registering 0.64 PPG more at home last season. Therefore, this should be an advantage for Basaksehir since they host the Istanbul derby against Galatasaray. What should worry The Yellow-Reds, however, is the fact the hosts have lost only one Super Lig game at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium last season.

The last five games Basaksehir have played as a guest, and they have lost three of them. So it should be splendid news for the team to perform on their turf. Pre-season comprised one win and one draw and an average of 2.00 GPG and it was Demba Ba to score three out of four goals.

Reports claim there are no recent injuries or suspensions in the team since the game week 1, therefore I expect a very similar starting lineup against Galatasaray.

Galatasaray Team News and Form

A team who has been sinking in defeats at the end of last season because of various injuries from its key players now looks ahead to go for what is more than rightful for them this season, the almighty Super Lig championship… Galatasaray have started the season very well and it is good to see Radamel Falcao back on the score sheet. The Colombian has found the net twice against Gaziantep, which is splendid news for Galatasaray fans.

The post-lockdown form has been one to forget for Galatasaray. Registering six points in eight games on the home stretch and ultimately finishing in 6th last season is a plot twist we haven’t been expecting. Since pre-season, however, the team hasn’t lost a single game and has averaged 2.00 GPG.

The team has won 3-1 with Neftci Baku in Europa League Qualification quarter-finals on 17th September and is slowly moving onto the promotion to the group stage. Mbaye Diagne was the one to play from the first minutes, giving Falcao the needed rest for the upcoming Istanbul derby.

Fan’s favourite Fernando Muslera has been injured since mid-June and is expected to return to fitness in January 2021. The injury list goes on with the likes of Emre Akbaba and new transfer Oghenekaro Etebo, who is in question before this one.

Istanbul Basaksehir Top Goalscorers:

  • Edin Visca (19 goals in all competitions in 2019/20) – The Bosnian has finished last season with 13 goals in Super Lig, which only Demba Ba achieved to even. Not only that, but he has also recorded the most assists in the entire league – 12 in total.
  • Enzo Crivelli (14 goals in all competitions in 2019/20) – It looks like ultimately Enzo’s transfer to Basaksehir in July 2019 has paid off.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Predictions, Betting Tips and Odds – Red Devils are looking ahead to start with a big win! (19/09/2020)


It is the first game of the season for Ole’s men in which they will confront Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. Man Utd will try to redeem themselves for their disappointing 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa in Club Friendly. Since the start of the new Premier League season, Okan Iskin has landed two tips so far.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace Summary

Man Utd starts the season on their home ground, where they will host a game against Crystal Palace. United fans have been waiting for this clash; looking forward to seeing Bruno Fernandes and company in the action and also Donny van de Beek in his Premier League debut. Crystal Palace, after winning 1-0 against Southampton, is looking to extend their good run with another victory despite the odds being in favour of the opposition.

The first 19 game weeks in 2019/20 were not the best for Ole’s men; eight place with only 28 points to their name. It is, however, the second half of the season where we all witnessed a revitalised team powered by January’s new exciting signing, Bruno Fernandes. Since transferring the skilful Portuguese, United haven’t lost a single game in Premier League and ultimately finished third, leaving Chelsea or Leicester behind them.

Crystal Palace, unlikely to United, has had a very successful first half of the 19/20; sitting in 9th with only two points to Man Utd was not what we were expecting from a textbook mid-table team. What destroyed the team’s form was ironically the lockdown after which they have registered a record of 1-1-7 until the end of the season. They ultimately finished 14th.

Man Utd Team News and Form

Finishing 3rd and qualifying to Champions League has given Man Utd fans a lot of reasons to get excited about the new season. We can all give it to Ole, that he has created a very healthy and positive environment around the team; which begs the question, can he translate it into results and potentially into the desired championship this season?

Since 2019/20 Premier League season has ended, the team has suffered a setback. Getting eliminated from Europa League in semifinals by Sevilla, despite being the strongest candidate to lift the trophy and losing 1-0 to Aston Villa in a pre-season raises a question of whether the team can break the recent curse of unfortunate performances or not.

Despite registering an impressive statistic of five clean sheets in nine games in the Premier League post-lockdown, the team has been slightly underperforming ever since by stopping the opposition from scoring only once and conceding 1 goal per game. However, I can’t imagine them going blank against Crystal Palace at home since having a starting lineup comprising the likes of Rashford, Fernandes and Martial.

Pogba and Greenwood, despite already training with the team, are still in doubt before this one. We could see Donny van de Beek then, starting from the first minute in his Premier League debut after performing well in pre-season against Aston Villa.

Crystal Palace Team News and Form

After registering a very disappointing post-lockdown record of 1-1-7, The Eagles look to start the season with excellent results. They have already started their run with a 1-0 win against Southampton and are now looking to add Man Utd to their list. Last season they have confronted Ole’s side, and it was Crystal Palace who took the home three points.

Crystal Palace seems to have forgotten really quickly about their end of the season, and instead of thinking about the past, they have immediately started thinking of future; they have transferred Eberechi Eze, Nathan Ferguson, and yet again sealing Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea. They have also produced an impressive pre-season with three wins and one draw. They have, however, lost against Bournemouth in EFL Cup on 15th September.

Wilfried Zaha has been the man of the headlines for Crystal Palace in the last weeks; not only because of his links with other clubs but also because of his huge contribution on the pitch lately. He has scored four goals in the last five games in all competitions and will bring an offensive threat against his former club Man Utd.

Patrick van Aanholt is still out, which gives young Mitchell another opportunity to shine, this time against Man Utd. Mamadou Sakho and Christian Benteke will return to fitness soon.

Top Goalscorers

Man Utd Top Goalscorers:

  • Anthony Martial (23 goals in all competitions in 2019/20) – The Frenchman was irreplaceable last season for Red Devils; being involved in 11 goals in his last 10 Premier League games. He has scored against Crystal Palace last time out.
  • Marcus Rashford (22 goals in all competitions in 2019/20) – The English forward and a role model to many youngsters, despite playing at the left-wing for most of his last season, has scored 17 goals in Premier League, as much as Anthony Martial. He has also been the lucky one to score against Crystal Palace in their last confrontation.

Crystal Palace Top Goalscorers:

  • Jordan Ayew (9 goals in all competitions in 2019/20) – The Ghanaian has had his best season in Premier League so far by registering nine goals in 37 games. He also has found the net twice in a pre-season friendly against Charlton.
  • Wilfried Zaha (4 goals in all competitions in 2019/20) – Zaha has been on fire lately; has scored three goals in pre-season and now against Southampton in Premier League. The Ivorian has also come very close to his second goal against The Saints, but it got ruled out by VAR check.

Match Facts

  • Man Utd has missed scoring only once against Crystal Palace in their last 10 confrontations.
  • Crystal Palace has won only one league game against Man Utd since the Premier League inception in 1992, which happened to be last season.
  • Both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have scored goals against Crystal Palace in their latest confrontation.

Okan’s Betting Tips

Despite Crystal Palace’s good start to the season, I can’t imagine Man Utd losing in this one. Red Devils have won eight out of the last 10 games played against Crystal Palace. Man Utd to win is 1/3* with Mark Jarvis.

Not so long ago both teams have faced each other, and it has ended as a 2-0 win for Man Utd. Crystal Palace have averaged 0.40 GPG in the last five premier league matches. Man Utd to keep a clean sheet is 10/11* with Mark Jarvis.

The Frenchman found the net seven times in his last 10 Premier League games. He has scored against Crystal Palace in their latest confrontation. Anthony Martial anytime scorer is 5/4* with Mark Jarvis.

Premier League MW1 TOTW: Salah welcomes Leeds with a stunning hat-trick!


The Premier League Matchweek 1 Team of the Week features some huge names. We provide a rundown of the best players from the first week back in the English top-flight… 

Premier League Matchweek 1 Results 

12th September 2020 Fulham 0-3 Arsenal
12th September 2020 Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton
12th September 2020 Liverpool 4-3 Leeds
12th September 2020 West Ham 0-2 Newcastle Utd
13th September 2020 West Brom 0-3 Leicester
13th September 2020 Spurs 0-1 Everton
14th September 2020 Sheffield Utd 0-2 Wolves
14th September 2020 Brighton 1-3 Chelsea

Premier League Matchweek Manager of the Week – Carlo Ancelotti

It is the Italian’s first full season as an Everton manager and it is fair to say the things couldn’t start any better. Midfield upgrades of Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez has given us an overall impression of a different team with a much bigger offensive threat than the last season. The game against Spurs has finished as a modest 1-0 win; with more luck in the execution from Richarlison and others, we could’ve seen easily a 2-0 victory.

Premier League Matchweek Player of the Week – Mohamed Salah

For some one-season wonder, for others one of the best in Europe, Mohamed Salah has scored his third Premier League hat-trick since joining Liverpool in 2017/18 season. The Egyptian’s first goal came from a penalty which he very well executed by sending a powerful ball into the top centre. The second goal was a yet another powerful shot, this time top bin volley after an unfortunate deflection in the box. The third one was also a penalty given in 88th minute and ultimately translated into a goal making it 4-3 until the final whistle. He has registered the rating of 9.1, the highest in this matchweek according to Sofascore.

MJ Team of the Week GW1

Goalkeeper: Vicente Guaita (8.1 Player Rating)

The man himself responsible for Crystal Palace’s good start to the season. The Spaniard has successfully fended off Southampton’s attack by registering five saves and one clean sheet in a respective 1-0 win. 

Right Back: Reece James (8.5 Player Rating)

The English right-back has made a name for himself, sending legendary Azpilicueta on the bench. It looks like betting on the young Englishman has been a good choice after all; one goal and one assist has massively contributed to the team’s 3-1 win against Brighton. The goal was one of a kind, very much reminding us of the one Vincent Kompany scored against Leicester on 6th May 2019; bagged in the top-right corner outside of the box.

Centre Back: Gabriel Magalhaes (8.1 Player Rating)

Another one on the list of Premier League’s debutants and what a debut it has been for the Brazilian. Not every centre-back can celebrate a goal and a clean sheet in a first game of the season. Overall a very good performance, promising for the future defence of Arsenal.

Centre Back: Romain Saiss (8.6 Player Rating)

The Marocain, who once in a while likes to get involved in Wolves offensive plays, has scored a header making it 2-0 against Sheffield United. Paired up with the captain Coady, he has contributed massively to his team’s clean sheet. 

Left Back: Lucas Digne (7.9 Player Rating)

The Frenchman has put on a brilliant performance this game week. His assist led to the only goal scored by Dominic Calvert-Lewin in a 1-0 clash against Spurs. Producing seven clearances and winning five duels has helped the team to stop Mourinho’s side from scoring. 

Centre Mid: Jorginho (8.0 Player Rating)

The Italian didn’t wait too long to score his first penalty goal in 2020/21 Premier League season. It was thanks to Chelsea’s new signing Timo Werner who has won a penalty for Jorginho to execute it in the 23rd minute. Later on, the midfielder has been involved in an absolute screamer produced by Reece James. 

Centre Mid: Mateusz Klich (7.0 Player Rating)

After his long and rich European journey, the time has now come for his first-ever Premier League season and it has started very promisingly. The Polish midfielder has produced a mouthwatering equaliser, making it 3-3 against Liverpool. Absolutely everything about this goal was right – the place, time, first touch and execution. It was a very special day for the player and the team, despite losing 4-3 at the end. 

Centre Mid: Jeff Hendrick (8.4 Player Rating)

The midfielder has produced one goal and one assist in a 2-0 victory over West Ham. It is also the first time for the experienced Irish to seal both one goal and assist in a single Premier League game. Ultimately, it looks like Hendrick’s transfer from Burnley to Newcastle was a good move after all.

Left Wing: Willian (8.1 Player Rating)

The Brazilian’s debut at Arsenal has gone beyond everyone’s wildest dreams. He has registered an outstanding hat-trick of assists; being involved in every goal of a 3-0 win against newly-promoted Fulham. The way Willian has been naturally moving on the pitch and understanding instantly his fellow teammates’ intentions has given us a lot of reasons to get excited about Arsenal this season. 

Striker: Jamie Vardy (8.3 Player Rating)

The Englishman has started the season with a big style by scoring two goals in an impressive 3-0 result for The Foxes. The striker who ages like a fine wine is looking again to compete for another Premier League golden boot.

Right Wing: Mohamed Salah (9.1 Player Rating)

The Egyptian has put on a stunning performance versus Leeds. Two penalties and one breath-taking volley have made the agile forward take home the match ball. Ultimately, the game has ended 4-3, and the result has given Klopp’s side a lot to think about before stepping into the next fixture.

Other impressive performers

Tariq Lamptey: Brighton’s rising star has been a key element in a confrontation against Chelsea. The youngster has made many runs on the right side which ultimately translated to him assisting to Trossard’s fabulous goal.

Timothy Castagne: The Belgian has made his first debut for Leicester, and it was a very successful one. One goal, one clean sheet and nine duels won forecasts a bright season for the right-back.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin: The 23-years-old has scored the only goal leading to Everton’s 1-0 win against Spurs. Luckily for him, he is expected to score plenty of more since Allan, Doucoure and James Rodriguez are now in the side.

James Rodriguez: The Colombian’s debut for Everton was very eye-catching and despite not producing any goal or assist he has given us a foretaste of the magic we are looking forward to this season.

Timo Werner: The German striker has experienced his first Premier League game in which he won a penalty which was very well executed by Jorginho. His fast runs have caught an eye and would produce many good offensive actions.

West Brom vs Leicester Summary

The counting down is over after exactly seven weeks of waiting for Leicester’s side who will face Premier League’s newly promoted West Brom at The Hawthorns on 13th September. The Foxes after finishing 5th last season and qualifying to Europa League should have plenty of reasons to get excited about the new challenges. West Brom got the 2nd place which translated into a very much desired Premier League return after a two-year absence.

West Brom Team News and Form

Slaven Bilic missed Premier League and Premier League missed Bilic. Starting off big is a way to go for the experienced Croatian. When managing West Ham in his debut season, he has won with Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City in the first match weeks and it is now in question If he can pull the same magic with West Brom.

West Brom’s table situation before Championship resumption in June has been looking very good for them. 70 points to their name, one point to 1st Leeds and six points gap between 3rd Fulham has given The Baggies the needed comfort on the home stretch. Ultimately ending in 2nd and guaranteeing the direct promotion to Premier League was what fans have been waiting for two years.

West Brom has finished the previous season as the second most scoring team with 77 goals to their name. The team, however, turned those goals into victories more in away games; they have won 12 away games compared to 10 at home. When talking about victories we can’t say their pre-season, comprising only one clash, had any. They have faced Brighton, and the match ended 0-0.

Since sealing Matheus Pereira on a permanent deal from Sporting and completing a move of very promising Grady Diangana from West Ham, we can expect to some ‘young blood action’ in front of Schmeichel’s goal.

Premier League 2020/21 Season Preview: Who are the Premier League title favourites? Who could face the drop? Any big potential surprises?

Leicester Team News and Form

It seems like Leicester has developed from Ranieri’s one season hit from 2015/16 to a well rounded and united team who proved its potential many times last season. Brendan Rodgers took over the team in February 2019 and vaulted from 9th to 5th place; a true validation of his work and the big step for the club.

Last season has started promisingly for The Foxes and If not their drop of form on the home stretch of the season it would be certain to see them back again in Champions League after four years. Now we will see them in a less prestigious competition, Europa League, which still means more fixtures within a single season for the club. The question now is will they achieve to reconcile their European journey with the domestic one.

Away games haven’t been the team’s jam for some time now, they have won only 2 out of the last 10 league games when playing as guests. Pre-season hasn’t been the best for the team either who has been averaging 1.76 GPG in Premier League, as they have scored three goals in three games in which they sealed one win and two draws. Amartey, Albrighton and Dewsbury-Hall were the sole scorers for The Foxes.

Ben Chilwell, one of Leicester’s key man and the player who has been an absolute certain pick for Brendan Rodgers last season, has put a pen to paper on a new contract for Chelsea. The transfer apparently cost The Blues £45.18m which was more than enough to bring a replacement, Timothy Castagne from Atalanta Bergamo. The Belgian is still waiting for his debut.

Top Goalscorers

West Brom Top 2019/20 Goalscorers:

  • Charlie Austin (10 Championship goals + 2 FA Cup goals) – Since the club has signed no new strikers so far I can see Charlie Austin getting rotated on a number nine position with Robson-Kanu in a Slaven Bilic’s very much favoured 4-2-3-1 formation.
  • Hal Robson-Kanu (10 Championship goals) – Robson-Kanu is a very versatile player who can play on either both wings or up-front, however, it was the number nine position where the Welshman has been placed in 35 out of 40 games last season. However, he hasn’t scored in the last ten games.

Leicester City Top 2019/20 Goalscorers:

  • Jamie Vardy (23 Premier League goals) – It is fair to say the Englishman ages like wonderful wine and despite being 33-years-old, he sealed his first-ever Premier League golden boot last season.
  • Kelechi Iheanacho (5 Premier League goals + 4 EFL Cup goals + 1 FA Cup goal) – The Nigerian has played in 20 Premier League games last season; mostly as a centre forward paired up with Jamie Vardy up-front.
