Chumsy and Shecomms will be predicting every premier league game this season.
Both are very passionate about football and have been Arsenal fans for over 20 years going through the good and difficult times. “There’s no better club than Arsenal,” says Shecomms, “it’s where I want to be.”
Chumsy also insists he would rather sit at home than jump ship. “I grew up loving Real Madrid and Milan AC but since I started supporting Arsenal (at a young age too) it’s been about the Gunners. It may not be okay today, but we’ll be great again. It’s funny when rival fans laugh at us or question if we have what it takes to be at the top. Although it doesn’t look like we’re there yet, I know we are close”
GAMEWEEK 2 PREDICTION
It’s week 2 of the English Premier League. The excitement never stops here.
Like I predicted last week, Liverpool will start this season early because they are title contenders. Another win is loading against a Burnley side that will be low on confidence.
Aston Villa and Newcastle are both looking for results. In this, we may see Willock featuring for Newcastle. All in all, I expect an entertaining game of football.
Crystal Palace were comfortably beaten by Chelsea last week and that will affect their confidence going into this one. This, coupled with Brentford impressive win over Arsenal last is pushing me towards giving them this one. But Crystal Palace has forwards that can score on their days.
Leeds are a decent team irrespective of their demolition by United last week. They can hold their own against anybody on their day. Having said that, Everton win against Southampton last week was impressive and they can’t be ruled out in this one.
City are fuming from their list against Spurs and the baptism of fire for Norwich will continue at the Etihad.
Both won in their first matches but Watford performance against Villa really impressed me.
For me, it’s anybody’s game but Brighton with a slight advantage.
The form Manchester United is in now especially with Bruno and Pogba is scary. I don’t think Southampton have what it takes to stop them.
United to win.
Wolves are welcoming their former coach to the Molineux with his new team, A Kane less Spurs. They lost last weekend but played well. Spurs will want to build on their last win against City.
Arsenal are at home and won’t want to lose two games back-to-back but the form Chelsea is in is scary especially with the return of Lukaku. This might be a match too be big for Arteta and his boys.
A very interesting match indeed.
Two teams on the rise with a definite set-up and hugely talented coaches. The Hammers did a double on the Foxes last season and will fancy their chances in this one.
LIVERPOOL v. BURNLEY
Liverpool go with revenge for the last visit to Anfield as their objective. Burnley took all three points last January. This time, it would not be fancied by van Dijk and his teammates. I see Liverpool correcting the anomaly but Burnley would not go down without a fight.
ASTON VILLA v. NEWCASTLE
Life after Grealish at Villa Park. Time to put the talisman’s era in the past. Newcastle have got their man in Willock, who scored goals for fun last season.
CRYSTAL PALACE v. BRENTFORD
Another local derby for both sides with contrasting results from their last games. Viera needs to up the performance while Frank may employ a different approach to their last time out.
LEEDS v. EVERTON
Keeping the shop closed while ensuring the ‘second season syndrome’ of Sheffield United does not become of them is a realistic target for Bielsa.
Benitez has got experience. Having led a couple of teams in the league prior to the Toffees job this summer, he must have ideas on how to get results.
MANCHESTER CITY v. NORWICH
It is an opportunity for both teams to prove their critics wrong. City, despite being crowned last season got a defeat in their season opener.
Norwich needs to make a claim with their emergence from the lower tier this term. Getting results against such an opponent will announce their arrival.
BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION v. WATFORD
Who shall keep their 100% win record after this game? 90 minutes shall reveal.
SOUTHAMPTON v. MANCHESTER UNITED
Should United put out the firepower of the reverse fixture, can the Saints withstand this time? Though it was a contest until late, the last time the Red Devils visited Saint Mary. Can they ensure the contest is not lost this time?
WOLVES v. TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS
Nuno Espirito having just jumped ship and started off with conquering the Champions last time out with his Spurs team. Can Bruno Lage and his team show a different side to the old gaffer at Molineaux?
ARSENAL v. CHELSEA
Some Blues fans might argue should Tuchel had agree to Abraham moving to the Gunners instead of Roma where he ended up could mean giving out the spoils for this game. It is now in the court of Arteta to prove them wrong as well as make the blip against Brentford seem just a bad day at the office. London is there for the taking in this local derby. Let’s wait for which colour the town bears after the game.
WEST HAM UNITED v. LEICESTER
The Foxes have won the Community Shield. Can the Hammers plummet them as they did last season?
