The English premier league is one of the most popular leagues in the world. The 2018/2019 seasons kicked off on 10th August; people are waiting to see whether the last season’s winners will secure the title for the second time. Can they defend the title? Which teams will give them much pressure? For them to have the title again, they have to organise themselves well because all the teams are very well prepared.
Last season’s winners will be looking forward to securing the title from the other premier league giants. Their performance in the pre-season was very impressing where they only had a challenge of playing their first two games with Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund. They also secured a very strong come back
from Bayern Munich and won 3-2. The last game they played was against rivals Chelsea in the community shield community shield which is played by the FA cup winner and premier league winner.
The team signed Riyad Mahred with a transfer record of $60 million after they had tried to sign him in January but the transfer was delayed. Their first premier league game was a successful one after beating Arsenal 2-0 at Emirates stadium. The team is now looking ahead to play the other games which are a bit simple facing Huddersfield Town, Newcastle and newly promoted Wolverhampton and Fulham.
Manchester city will rise to a big challenge for teams like; Chelsea With the arrival of the new coach Maurizio Sarri who has already won his first game only losing to Manchester City in the community shield. Chelsea also has made some signings of Jorginho, return of Loftus-Cheek and goalkeeper after the Curtois left for Real Madrid. Chelsea did not perform well in the previous season where even winning the FA cup had much struggled. With Chelsea having strengthened their striking and midfield, the chances of performing in the premier league and the Europa cup are very high. Liverpool During the last season, Liverpool did not win any silverware, but they had a great campaign. They had a chance to reach UEFA champions league finals but lost to Real Madrid. Liverpool has a dominant squad this season with Salah, Firmino and Mane being the big names in the team that will lead the team to win the title.
The three finishers have started to continue with their top form and Liverpool has nothing to worry about their finishing. With the signings of Roma’s Allison and Fabinho will be one of the best signings for Jurgen Klopp.
Arsenal has started their new season without Arsene Wenger who took the club from 1996 up to 2018 leaving it to Unai Emery the former PSG coach. He began his season with poor performance after losing to Manchester City at Emirates stadium. Arsenal has some top flight strikers like Aubameyang and
Lacazette being the main strikers. The game that arsenal will play this season is unpredictable because they only started with a big team. Arsenal can get into the top four if their strikers and new signings have full impact on the team.
Manchester United did not have anything to cheer up, and their morale to play was very low. The team was in the shade of their rivals Manchester city for the whole season. The team has to use the services of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez who need to give their best if they want to win the league. The team may not seem to put much pressure on the defending champions because they did not have many signings.
Conclusions With new coaches and players arriving in England, a lot of changes are expected in the premier league. People will be waiting to see how exciting the league will be. Get every detail about the season from London X City
