Premier League Week 9: What Went Down

In many ways, this was the perfect weekend; we witnessed the bulk of the Premier League Week 9 round of matches and in many ways, it was a glorious weekend. Some clubs won. Some clubs lost. As always. However, things didn’t go exactly the way some would have planned. Anyway, here are our thoughts on how the weekend went.

Liverpool 5 Steps Ahead of United.

Manchester United looked anything but united on the day. Defence utterly in shambles, midfield non-existent and overrun, attack under supplied. It was the little boys against the big men. This was supposed to be a firecracker of a match but ended up being a walk in the park for the Liverpool team, who at half time were already running away with a 4-0 lead. In all honesty, at that point, Liverpool didn’t even need to be playing spectacularly well, Manchester United were playing spectacularly terrible as it were. United had zero synergy, looked devoid of a game plan, were tactically naïve.

If not for De Gea, the final scoreline should have read something more like 8-0. This was a day to forget for United, and it’s back to the drawing board, if they even have one. Any defeat against Liverpool is hard to take for United fans on a normal day. One so humiliating as this and at home is on a whole different level. United’s next run of matches look very grim. It’s hard times for United fans, check up on them.

Chelsea Thrashes Norwich

Firstly, the major talk had been about how Tuchel was going to manage with his star strikers out due to injuries. On evidence of this though, no problem. Following their win in the Champions League, the Champions proceeded to dismantle Norwich at Stamford Bridge, with Mason Mount scoring an hat trick. Subsequently, Mount and Callum-Hudson Odoi became the 16th and 17th different players to score for Chelsea in all competitions this season, more than any other Premier League side. A team on a mission.

That ability to spread the goals around the side is the mark of champions. For instance, it’s Premier League Week 9, but surely an encouraging sign for Thomas Tuchel as he looks to juggle five competitions this winter, including the rearranged World Cup in early 2022. Chelsea won’t have an easier afternoon this season.

Mancity Pass Brighton Test

Firstly, Brighton have been nothing short of impressive this season. For them to still be 5th on the Premier League table even after defeat here is a testament of just that. Pep had tasted rare defeat here in the final game of last season. In this match, he sent out his team with instruction to secure victory early. City’s first half performance was exquisite. They were smooth, efficient, unbreeched. But they will rarely face an examination like the one they experienced in the second half at the Amex.

Even as they led 3-0, Graham Potter’s Brighton tested everything about City. Their game management, their resilience, their defensive capabilities. And City’s manager Pep Guardiola was delighted they passed the test. He recognised few teams in the Premier League could have emerged from this with three points, despite being 3 goals up at halftime. At fulltime, it was kudos to City, but Brighton also gave a good account of themselves, despite the scoreline.

Euro 2020 (2021): Watch Live On Startimes

It’s time for the Euro 2020, and these are peculiar times. Nothing probably underlines the peculiarity of the times more than the fact that we are about to experience it in 2021.

It’s been a year where ‘normal’ was redefined. Arsenal winning the Champions League would have been the only thing that could have been more shocking. Forgive us, we just love to pick on Arsenal. Everyone does actually. Except their fans.

Euro 2020

Well, here’s a cool fact for you. You can watch the all the matches showing from 11 June – 11 July on Startimes across its five Sports Channels in HD picture format.

Catch all the action starting tomorrow live via ST World Football HD, Sports Premium, ST Sports Focus, ST Sports Arena and ST Sports Life. Just like there have been so many things most of us couldn’t have seen coming. This could possibly be a tournament of upsets.

For instance, could this be the year England finally takes it home? The final will after all be played at the famed Wembley stadium. It would be a nice touch to have England in the final. And possibly win, if that’s a possibility.

Whatever will come this tournament, you need to renew your TV subscription, pay your electricity bills to keep the lights on, and get ready for an unusual tournament in an unusual year.

Keeping Up With The Ball? 5 Things to lookout For in 2020-21 Football Season

New seasons of the English Premier League (EPL), Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Seria A and French Ligue un are back.

Just last week, Crystal Palace knocked Manchester United 3-1 at Old Trafford, bringing back the ‘anything can happen’ tingles of the premier league.

In Germany, current UEFA champions and Bundesliga winner, Bayern Munich kickstarted their new season with an 8-0 slaughter of Schalke. Jeez!

Christiano Ronaldo pulled in a late one on the 88th minute as Juventus cruised 3-0 over Sampdoria in Seria A season opener. Guess the race for who’s best between him and his long time rival, Lionel Messi has just begun.

Speaking of Messi; he is yet to record a goal this season as FC Barcelona is just concluding pre-season ahead of 2020-21 La Liga.

Something to look out for, right? Or perhaps, we should look with awe into Ligue Un where Paris Saint Germain sits 8th on the league table haven lost two early matches. Hmmm. . .

With so much cooking up in Europe’s top 5 leagues, here are 5 things to look out for as the 2020-21 season unfolds:

epl seria a la liga bundesliga ligue un

Messi-Barca Ripple

The over-broadcasted news about Messi leaving FC Barcelona would most likely be felt all season long. Every move made by the Argentine would surely be scrutinized in the light of this.

Although reports state that Messi is willing to play one more season with Barcelona, all eyes are on him. Would he punish Barca for refusing to let him go or would he deliver yet another stunning result this season?

Bayern for another UEFA title?

Following a strong year for Bayern Munich last season, experts are predicting the German against might bag themselves yet another UEFA Champions League title; that is if they continue playing as they are currently.

The early 8-0 trashing of strong rivals, Schalke last week already shows Bayern’s intent. And with a solid squad of young talents, an ambitious coach and passionate fans, those predictions might just come true.

Liverpool on the hot seat

Current EPL champions are starting the season in a position all previous EPL winners do find themselves; – defending the title. Jurgen Klopp managed to pull a stunt for the reds last season by winning the title for Liverpool’s after a 30-years old title draught.

Now, he finds himself defending the title against strong contenders; the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea; a team that just spent $300 million on boosting their squad.

Another UEFA, Another Barca, Another Drama?

Barcelona has become the object of mockery in UEFA Champions League following 4 consecutive humiliating exists. The latter being an 8-2 trashing at the hands of Bayern Munich.

The club has shown spirit, however, in starting a new sporting project; signing new talents, urging old legs out, bringing in a more fitting manager, shifting some powers is management, etc; but fans around the world would never forget Barca’s UEFA Champions League woes.

Another UEFA, another Barca!

epl seria a la liga bundesliga ligue un

New Phase for Juventus?

When Christiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, it was solely to help them win the UEFA Champions League. 3 years down the lane, that is yet to happen.

Juventus had to sack Maurizio Sarri following a disappointing season in 2019-20 UEFA and appointed Andrea Pirlo as new manager. Is this the new face to lead Juventus into European glory once again?

Champions League Resumes 7th August, Finally

When major football leagues (EPL, La Liga, Seria A, and Bundesliga) resumed; fans got their tint of hope of possible Champions league resumption. Although the date of resumption was announced by UEFA 3 months ago, the feeling of ‘it’s finally here!’ can’t be really shaken off.

After a five-months hiatus due to the global pandemic, the UEFA Champions League and Europa League resume August 7th, 2020 in order to play out the pending matches of this troubled season.

However, things would take a different shape. UEFA set out two mini competitions to solved the puzzle of travelling amidst the pandemic. Uncompleted round of 16 matches would be played out in host stadiums on 7th and 8th of August. Then from 12th August, all roads lead to Lisbon, Portugal where quarter-final matches would be played in knockout form. Oops, no home and away.

Here’s a timeline of UEFA Champions League activities:

  • 7-8 August: Round of 16-second legs (host home stadiums)
  • 12-15 August: Quarter-finals (Lisbon)
  • 18-19 August: Semi-finals (Lisbon)
  • 23 August: Final (Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, Lisbon)

So put on your soccer shoes, yank out the popcorn and enjoy. Major round of 16 ties includes:

  • Barcelona vs Napoli: It was honors when this two first met in a 1-1 draw at Naples. The Spanish giants would be at home advantage when they host Napoli at the Camp Nau
  • Manchester City vs Real Madrid: Current Spanish champions fell at home to City in the firs encounter. They face an uphill task coming back against Gurdiola’s men at the Etihad.
  • Juventus vs Lyon: Lyon leads 1-0 in this encounter. The men from Turin would be better prepared to host their opponent who play away this time around.
  • Bayern vs Chelsea: This is perhaps the center of attention. With Chelsea trailing 3-0 from the first leg; it’s looking bleak for the Blues when they finally face Bayern in Germany.

It’s really juicy as it sounds, we can’t wait! You can latch unto the action by subscribing your GOtv, DStv, or Startimes now. Don’t be told of what’s going down. And when you’re not watching football, relax into the drama of the on-going Big Brother Naija Season 5!
