The third matchday of the Premiership is set to kick off on Saturday starting with newly promoted Wolves v Man City at 12:30 pm. Arsenal will play West Ham, with head coach Unai Emery being quoted as saying they would not underestimate their opponents, and Manchester United will host Tottenham Hotspurs on Monday at 8 pm at Old Trafford, which is our featured game.
Having lost their last match to Brighton and Hove Albion despite a penalty from Pogba and a goal from Romelu Lukaku, Manchester United will be determined to achieve a win. In Pogba’s words ‘We definitely don't want to lose two games in a row, so we're going to have to get ready and play much, much better’ Tottenham is on a roll having won four of their last six matches, including recent wins against Fulham (3-1) and Newcastle (2-1).
Tottenham currently hold 5th place in the standings, after 2 wins. In comparison, Manchester United are only in 9th place, with 3 points to Tottenham's 6 points.
Harry Kane, Golden Boot winner in the World Cup this year and forward for the Spurs, scored his first goal this August against Fulham and Kieran Trippier also hit the net with a free-kick. Dele Alli helped secure a win against Newcastle with a first-half goal. Manchester United will be resting its hopes on Paul Pogba, World Cup winner, who was given the captain armband by manager Mourinho despite recent rumours of disagreement between the two. Mourinho has said that this season will be very ‘difficult’ for the team due to a lack of success on deadline transfer day. There has been some rivalry between Man U and Tottenham over transfers; Alderweireld of Tottenham had been linked with Manchester United this summer, but Man U failed to sign him.
Newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers FC will face Manchester City, a tough game against the team currently top of the table. Wolves are in 14th position with just 1 point after drawing 2-2 with Everton in their first Premier League match and subsequently losing to Leicester City.
Manchester City has already scored confidence-building wins against Arsenal (2-0) and Huddersfield (6-1) and will be hoping for a third in a row. Man City has been said to already be eyeing up Wolves’ midfielder Ruben Neves for a January transfer, despite the transfer window only just having closed.
Arsenal take on West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium, with the current win probability 71% in favour of a Gunners win at the time of writing. Unai Emery, new head coach at Arsenal has been quoted as saying ‘Our performances are getting better’ but that they would not underestimate the West Ham team. Arsenal is in 17th position after a 3-2 defeat by Chelsea and a 2-0 loss against Man City, but the team is hoping to push themselves higher up the board with a win against West Ham (currently in 19th position).
