Liverpool looking for a start, Arsenal looking for Fulham points
Liverpool hopes to launch its season after a slow start when it hosts Bournemouth today (Saturday) in the fourth stage of the English Premier League, while Arsenal seeks to continue its impressive start when it also faces its neighbor Fulham at home.
Three months after competing for a historic quartet, Liverpool finds itself looking for its first victory in the Premier League, which disturbs its German coach, Jurgen Klopp, and the loss of the two against the wounded rival Manchester United (1-2) showed the extent of Liverpool’s problem, especially as it finds itself now He was left behind by the “Red Devils” team, who started his career with his new Dutch coach, Eric Ten Hag, by losing his first two matches in the league, the last of which was a humiliating score of 0-4 at the hands of Brentford. And the slow start, the worst for the team in a decade, left Liverpool 5 points behind champions Manchester City after only three stages, while the difference between them and Arsenal leaders is 7 points.
Arsenal to keep calm
Unlike Liverpool, Arsenal made a great start that made their fans dream about the days of French coach Arsene Wenger, who led him to his last league title in 2004, after the men of Spanish coach Mikel Arteta were the only team to win the first three matches of this season. But Ukrainian newcomer Oleksandr Zinchenko warned his colleagues against being overly optimistic, based on the experience he gained with Manchester City.
Zinchenko and another newcomer from Brazilian City Gabriel Jesus played a key role in Arsenal’s victory in his first three games of the season for the first time in 18 years, but After the wonderful victory in the last stage against Bournemouth 3-0.
United to continue awakening
After a quarrel with his Italian counterpart in Tottenham, Antonio Conte, which caused him to be suspended for a match, the German coach of Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel, appeared as a nervous person, contrary to his habit, to the extent that he found the transfer of his team to the Leeds stadium by bus a reason for the humiliating loss he received in the last stage (0-3).
The team with one victory in the first three games, and it was hardly the injured Everton 1 – zero, to show the magnitude of the pressure experienced by the German at the beginning of the season.
What makes the matter more difficult is that he publicly criticized his players, especially Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, which threatens to tense the atmosphere in the “Blues” dressing rooms, and Leicester’s visit to “Stamford Bridge” at this time may be the best opportunity for the Northern Irish coach Brendan Rodgers’ team to catch his breath after he made a start Worse than Chelsea with only one point so far.
Manchester City, the defending champion, appears to be a candidate for its third victory and to appear differently from its previous match against Newcastle, when it trailed 1-3 before returning and leveling 3-3, when it hosts Crystal Palace in a match that is not without difficulty, especially since the London guest collected 4 points in three Matches.
As for neighbors Manchester United, the victory they achieved against Liverpool marked the beginning of the uprising led by Ten Hag, but he should beware on Saturday against his host Southampton.
