The Premier League resumes after the international break
Two weeks have passed since we last saw the English clubs in the Premier League. UEFA Nations League started and all the international players went back to their respective clubs. The match of the day will include a confrontation between Tottenham and Liverpool on top of the League.
The Spurs will miss Hugo Lloris
The World Champion French goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, was in the headlines for a couple weeks following his arrest for DUI. Not only he will learn his lesson, he will be sideline for maybe up to a month with a thigh injury. The caption and one of the teams leader will be missed for the big game against the red hot leaders Liverpool FC
Coach THFC, Pochettino, previews the match:
“It’s always important after a not so good performance [2-1 loss at Watford] to have a good performance and a good result is always important to keep our position in the table.
In the end, football is about winning and performing in the way you want to perform. Every game is a challenge to try to do your best and try to win.”
Arsenal look at another win after rough start
Another win for the Gunners would send them within the first tier of the League after losing their first games. Newcastle will aim at first win this season.
Arsenal coach, Emery, shares his views on the game at Newcastle:
“We need to win and I think it is very important that in the last match we won. Our aim away at Newcastle on Saturday is to keep improving things and continue to create our idea, build up our spirit on the pitch, individually and collectively.
And it is clear this process is one process. Saturday is another step we can do, it will be difficult. But, I want to continue [to show] our personality on the pitch and impose this personality on the opposition and to find the win.”
A must win for Man City
Manchester City must win to stay in contact of Liverpool and they will face the promoted team of London, Fulham.
Coach City, Guardiola, is ready for the match:
“We started one month ago but now we have a game every three days. That’s why everybody will (play). Usually, there is not too much time to watch opponents but in this case, we have had two weeks.
I had time and I saw three games. I was really impressed. I understood when I watched them the reason why they are in the Premier League. They have really good players, experienced players and they try and (I like) the way they want to play.
They want to make their own game, and I’m pretty sure Slavisa Jokanovic is going to make a good season.”
