The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of Matchweek 8

We've reached the second international break of the season, and we can now pause and reflect on what we've seen so far in the 20/21 Premier League season. It's all been a bit mental. It's hard to decide whether Southampton being fourth or Sheffield United and Burnley being the bottom two is more surprising. It's impossibly to figure out what was the most surprising result of the season thus far. Everyone has at least one loss, zero teams have a …

West Brom vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham will be traveling to face winless West Brom on Saturday, with expectation that they will deliver an attacking masterclass.

This is likely to do with the strengths of the squad, with an attack consisting of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale. They have yet to start a match …

Chelsea face a challenging trip to face an improving Burnley team, just days after their Champions League victory against Krasnodar. The time that the Blues have to prepare for the fixture could prove an issue for them, especially when the long haul flights are factored in.
