Premier League Blog #4

Isaac Bullwinkle, Reporter

After a short break, I’m back with the Premier League Blog. There’s been a lot going on in the Premier League recently so let’s take a look at the matches being played this weekend. 

Wolverhampton vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Wolverhampton 1-0 Tottenham  

Why?

This is a tough game to analyze because Wolverhampton are on a streak and are up to sixth in the league. Tottenham are still adjusting to their new manager, Jose Mourinho, and are still having some trouble with consistency. However, I believe that if Tottenham can access the prowess they showed last season, they can be a very promising side. If you have read my previous articles on the Premier League, you know that I am a big fan of Adama Traore, and I believe his role is vital for victory to Wolverhampton. Will he break down Tottenham or will Tottenham surprise me?

Manchester United vs. Everton

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

Why?

As predicted by me, Manchester United are performing out of their minds. With a win last week against Manchester City, including two goals from Marcus Rashford, United are achieving the potential that I discussed in the linked article. Unlike many elite strikers, Rashford is able to convert goals against all types of sides from the top five teams in the league to irrelevant European squads. United will crush Everton and continue their streak.

Arsenal vs. Manchester City

Manchester City 2-1 Arsenal

Why?

Despite having some of the best players in the world, both of these teams are on a slump. Arsenal recently fired their manager, Unai Emery, and hired a new one, Freddie Ljungberg. Manchester City are coming off a loss to rival Manchester United last weekend. City still have some of the best players in the world and I believe that their loss to United will be an anomaly in their season. Arsenal has a solid squad, but they won’t be able to keep up with City, leading to their inevitable loss.

These games are looking pretty interesting, and I think I’ll do well predicting them. What do you think? Are Manchester United the dark horse I think they are?

All-Time Record: 7-3
