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”.
