The Premier League Returns

The Premier League Returns - The 2019/20 Premiership kicks off with Liverpool v Norwich
The 2019/20 Premiership kicks off with Liverpool v Norwich

Following a summer absent of major international competition (save for the UEFA Nations League), the Premier League makes a welcome return this weekend and both Sky Sports and BT Sport will be on hand to bring us live coverage of some of the key games in the opening round of fixtures.


Liverpool finished a close second to Manchester City at the end of the last Premier League campaign although they more than made up for their agonisingly close finish by winning the Champions League soon afterwards. The Reds have enjoyed a decent pre-season campaign and while they lost to arch-rivals Manchester City in the Community Shield earlier this month, they will be hugely confident of brushing aside new-boys Norwich City in the first Premier League game of the season on Friday evening. The Canaries finished top of the Championship at the close of 2018/19 following what was a blistering campaign, however it’s fair to say that they couldn’t have wished for a tougher opening match and we don’t envisage them managing anything from their trip to Anfield (live coverage on Sky Sports, kick-off at 8:00pm)


The top-flight action continues on Saturday afternoon, the BT Sport cameras in attendance as West Ham United face reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at the London Stadium (kick-off 12:30pm). Pep Guardiola’s men finished just a single point clear of Liverpool in last season’s Premier League campaign although they are huge odds-on favourites to lift the domestic title once again in 2019/20. Can anyone stop them in their tracks? Perhaps, but we don’t envisage it being the Hammers this weekend.


The final Premier League game on Saturday afternoon is also the focus of the TV cameras with Sky Sports providing live coverage from White Hart Lane as Tottenham Hotspur entertain Aston Villa, BetVictor Bookies offering free bets on this match. The Villans clawed their way back into the top-flight via the play-offs at the end of last season although while many expect them to give a decent account of themselves on their return to the top-flight, we envisage them being under the cosh when they line-up against a Spurs side whose last competitive outing was in the Champions League Final (live coverage on Sky Sports, kick-off 5:30pm).


Super Sunday has thrown up two intriguing clashes with Sky Sports providing live coverage from St James’ Park (Newcastle United v Arsenal, kick-off 2:00pm) and Old Trafford (Manchester United v Chelsea, kick-off 4:30pm). The Magpies waved goodbye to popular and highly respected manager Rafael Benitez during the summer and replacement Steve Bruce will have a tough task winning the hearts of a fanbase which have become very disillusioned with their club in recent years. Indeed Bruce couldn’t have wished for a tougher opening match with Arsenal the visitors to Tyneside and in all honesty it’s hard to see the home side getting anything from this game. 


Manchester United are also in for a tricky assignment on Sunday afternoon when they entertain a Chelsea side which managed a top-three finish at the end of 2018/19. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be eager to hit the ground running in his first full season in charge of the Red Devils and victory over the Blues would be a great start to what promises to be another tough campaign. United missed out on a Champions League berth at the close of last season and pressure will be on their Norwegian boss to deliver, however can his side produce the goods on Sunday afternoon? We believe that they can and we’ll be siding with the Red Devils to get their campaign off to the best possible start in front of their ever-hopeful home support.
