Thinned out Premier League weekend starts today
We all remember last season, where loads of games got called off because of Covid-19. We all hoped this was a one season thing, but unfortunately the same is happening at this moment. For this Premier League gameweek, 6 matches are called off already. Manchester United versus Brighton and Hove Albion, Aston Villa versus Burnley Southampton versus Brentford, Watford versus Crystal Palace, West Ham United versus Norwich City and Everton versus Leicester City are all called off. Leaves us five more matches to enjoy this weekend. Every Premier League fan hopes we don’t see any other postponements this weekend. Especially with Boxing Day coming up next weekend. In this article we discuss some of the most exciting out of these 5 games.
Leeds United versus Arsenal
Both teams come with a completely different feeling to Elland Road for this match. Leeds United plays at home after a 7-0 defeat against Manchester city. Arsenal will feel very confident after the 2-0 victory over West Ham United. For the first time in a while, they are back in the top 4. With games against Leeds United, Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, Arsenal should be able to finish 2021 on a high. We expect them to continue their amazing form and add another three points to their tally.
Tottenham Hotspur versus Liverpool
Even if all postponed games were going ahead, this was always going to be the match of the weekend. Liverpool plays for the title this season, while Spurs want to qualify for the Champions League. Liverpool has the better team, but they are also missing some players due to Covid. Spurs haven’t been playing for awhile since their matches got postponed due to the virus and bad weather conditions. Will this cost them? We will know soon enough!
