By the end of the European Championships, it was time for the points race.
This week, there is no confrontation between the big teams. Tottenham Hotspur’s game has been postponed due to a covid infection.
So, there will be only 9 matches played this week.
The most interesting of these was the match of Steven Gerrard (Villa manager) who had to return to Anfield as a rival.
Listen to Lewis Jones at Sky Sports to find out which teams will be in which fixtures. . .
1. Manchester City – Wolverhampton Wanderers
There are some problems with scoring goals in Wolves. Now they face a team that is enjoying goals.
They lost to Leipzig in the Champions League on Saturday, but the result did not hurt City.
However, with two games in a row, City will definitely be playing hard to stay in the top two.
All Wojciech Szczesny has to do is set up a defense and defend as much as possible against Manchester City. But in the end, the visitors will have to return empty-handed from Manchester.
Prediction: Manchester City 2 – 0 Wolves
2. Arsenal – Southampton
Southampton have won just one of their last four games in November. But the defeat was the same. The other two games have ended in a draw and this time around Arsenal will be in trouble.
Everton Two consecutive defeats to United could have an emotional impact on Arsenal players.
When that happens, it can be hard to get back on track.
If only Hudson Hodgson could take advantage of that, he could get just one Christmas gift away from home.
Prediction: Arsenal 1-1 Southampton
3. Chelsea – Lead United
The lead of Marcelo Beijas is on the downside. The defense is less sharp and the defense is not as compact as it should be.
Chelsea were relegated to second place in the group after a draw with Zinedine Zidane on Saturday. Such negligence will never happen again.
One thing to keep in mind is that Chelsea have a lot of injured players.
Some may return, but coach Tuchel is unlikely to take the risk.
Without everyone, Chelsea would not be able to play at their highest level.
Chelsea need Lukaku in a game like this. It remains to be seen what he can do.
If we win, we will win. The goal will not be missed.
Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Lead
4. Liverpool – Aston Villa
Steven Gerrard’s return to Anfield is truly exciting. It will be something full of emotions.
Villa has good players. The group also improved after Gerrard took over.
But it is not enough to separate the points from Liverpool.
One thing to consider is Liverpool’s respect for Steven Gerrard.
Villa will not be able to compete with Liverpool at Anfield. Mossala will be difficult to control.
But you don’t see a lot of goals. “Even if Liverpool can score, I feel they are not willing to score. You can only win with 1 or 2 goals.
Prediction: Liverpool 1-0 Villa
5. Norwich – Manchester United
For a temporary coach, Ruffranis has a great team. United’s performance in the opening 45 minutes of last season’s game against Palestino was quite impressive. In the first half, United were allowed 12 kicks and seven corner kicks.
You can see the same influence this time around.
There is pressure at the bottom of the Norwich schedule. But the footwork is also unsatisfactory.
Skills are still needed both defensively and offensively.
Therefore, it can be said that this match will be a difficult match for United to get 3 points.
Prediction: Norwich 0 – 3 Manchester United
