The English Premier League is back, and week nine could not get any more exciting. Chelsea and Manchester United are expected to lighten the weekend when they battle each other at the Stamford Bridge. The are other fixtures that have drawn a lot of attention such as the Manchester City home game and the London Derby between West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur.
Everybody is looking forward to the game at the Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Manchester United among the most anticipated games of the season. The Blues will be keen on climbing to the top of the Premier League table and will be looking to take advantage of the Red Devils recent poor form in the Saturday’s match.
Eden Hazard was the English premier league player of the month and will be the main threat on Chelsea’s side. Apart from being the top scorer in the league so far, he produced electrifying displays so far, and the Belgium international will prove to be a handful for the Red Devil’s defenders. Manchester United might have regained their confidence when they came back from two goals to defeat Newcastle United 3-2 at home on matchday eight. Their Striker, Romelu Lukaku was also on fire in the international break, and that might work for Mourinho’s advantage. The last five games between the two clubs have seen straight wins for the home side, and this could work for the host’s benefit. With the positive energy brought by Mauricio Sarri, Chelsea is eager to bring back glory to the Stamford Bridge.
David will be facing Goliath at the Etihad Stadium on match day nine of the Premier League season. The Citizens gained one point in a goalless draw against Liverpool in their previous match, after Riyad Mahrez missed a golden chance to put them ahead through a penalty in the final minutes of the game. Pep Guardiola’s men are keen on returning to winning ways, and a victory against Burnley will help them to retain their top position on the Premier League table.
The Clarets, have lately shown some signs of improvement, but Man City who are a real force when at home, might make the visitors go back home empty-handed. Man City received good news that their midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is fit to play again and that is terrible news for Burney. The last five games between Man City and Burnley had one draw and four wins for the Citizens, and this is a significant indicator of how the game might end.
The most awaited derby game of matchday nine will be between West Ham and Tottenham Hotspurs at the London Stadium. West Ham will be looking to bounce back from a defeat against Brighton, and their win against Manchester United at home in the English Premier League will give the fans a reason to be optimistic. Spurs have been on a three-game winning streak in the league ahead of their London derby. Harry Kane has not been in good form and will be looking to redeem himself in this match and might prove to be a handful for West Ham defenders. Tottenham’s injury woes in the midfield might be a disadvantage for them with Dembele and Ericksen sidelined with injuries. Wanyama will have to step up although he might not be fully fit. The last five games between the two clubs have had only one draw with each club winning two matches. This means that this game might go either way.
