The two Manchester meet this weekend for the big game of the weekend. Manchester City has led the League since the beginning while the world discovered Anthony Martial with Manchester United. United had a very difficult game in Russia in Moscow but brought a point back while Manchester City waited the last minute to seal a win with a De Bruyne goal 2-1 v. Sevilla. As coach van Gaal previews: “I think for the fans it’s very emotional.” This is the talk of the town where the city is divided between the blue or red color.He adds: “I don’t think it is a big issue for us that Manchester City have started well, because you can expect that from a club like City. It’s not only a derby, but a match that can see who can be ready to go top of the table. Last year we had a very good derby, of course, a 4-2 win, and that is very important for the fans. I hope we can do that again but it is always difficult”.

Arsenal v. Everton

Arsenal have won five of their last six games and want to keep the momentum. They smashed Manchester United 3-0 in twenty minutes for the last game at the Emirates and also Bayern Munich during the week in Champions League. Coach Wenger knows the importance of this game but expects a tough opponent with Everton. “We always have a feel-good factor in our club unless the results are not there,” he said. “We have always a togetherness but not always the results that we want. Overall we are in a good run and that can help the level of confidence and belief going into the next game. We have a big game in front of us against Everton and we can extend our run. I believe that [at the] top level, you come out of a big game and show you can focus again and produce the same performance again.”

West Ham United v. Chelsea

How is Chelsea? We have talked a lot lately about Mourinho’s problems with his staff and then not starting his superstar Hazard. They already lost a bunch of games and have no jokers left if last season’s Champions want to fight for their title. West Ham has been the good surprise of the first two and a half months of competition sitting at the fourth place. They also have won against the best teams in the League including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. Mourinho sees continuity in the current form with two consecutive clean sheets: “We have got two important results, three points in the Premier League after two matches without a victory, and against a direct rival in the Champions League we got a point away. The group was always solid and compact and together but obviously the mood improves with results and people are happy. The team and players have always been together. The players have been man enough to assume responsibilities and even publically say that. Statistics are very clear for us. As an example we have conceded six goals as a consequence of isolated individual mistakes, but the team were always together”.

 Liverpool v. Southampton 
Jurgen Klopp will make his debut in the Premier League. This is just enough to have an interest in this game. The German coach is still looking for his first win with Liverpool. Here is what he thinks of the Premier League: “I didn’t expect that we would run through the league from the moment I started here. This league is too strong, the opponents are too strong. We don’t have enough time between the games to always be 20 per cent better in the next game. But you have to make the goal. My first job is to give the team some ideas to come into the box, to be dangerous for them so that they have problems to defend. There were many good things, but of course if you see the whole game, at the end you feel ‘here you could have done better’. That’s the truth, of course, but that’s football. It’s always the same. You don’t think about these things after a game if you made a second and third goal. But it’s the same”.
