EPL 3 matches we could see shock results. This weekend marks the final Premier League matchups before to the 2022 World Cup break.
No matter what happens, the league’s early front-runners, Manchester City and Arsenal, will be in command when play resumes around Christmas.
Before the tournament in Qatar begins, there could be one or two surprises.
Manchester City vs. Brentford: Pep Guardiola’s team nearly lost to Fulham last week. Despite Joao Cancelo being dismissed in the opening period, Marco Silva’s team opted not to show any bravery in the face of the champs. In the end, City secured all three points thanks to a contentious Erling Haaland penalty. Brentford will attempt to take a backseat while causing their opponents a variety of difficulties with their pace and strength. and could get one or more points at the Etihad.
- For Mikel Arteta’s club, the Wolves vs. Arsenal matchup is quite straightforward. To be in first place heading into the World Cup, defeat Wolves at the Molineux. After this game, Julen Lopetegui will assume full leadership. Don’t discount manager bounce, though, and its consequences.
- Fulham vs. Man Utd: The Red Devils haven’t played particularly well lately. And last weekend’s game against Aston Villa showed that a team may benefit from playing aggressively against them. Although the important Aleksandr Mitrovic won’t be playing for the hosts, Silva could inspire his team to challenge Erik ten Hag’s team.
