A weekly blog about international football.
Well, it was quite a week in the Premier League.|
Manchester United was the main topic of discussion among media and fans.
After United lost 3-2 to Brighton on Sunday, (Aug. 19), football insiders were quick to criticize the team.
Former Liverpool player, Danny Murphy, predicted that Man. U's manager, Jose Mourinho, is not going to last the rest of the season. (read Aug 20 article - "Man. U's Manager's Job Is On The Line").
As the week went on, there was more mud slinging about the team and the players.
The latest, the fans plan to fly a banner at this week's game against Burnley, showing their dismay over Ed Woodward and the team's ownership.
Now to more positive news. Well, to me that is.
My team Chelsea is 2-0 after defeating Arsenal 3-2 on Saturday (Aug 18).
I have to say, though, Chelsea was lucky to win the match. The team allowed Arsenal to bounce back from a 2-0 deficit.
Chelsea plays Newcastle United this week.
Manchester City are on a roll. City hammered newly promoted Huddersfield Town 6-1.
Huddersfield are now 0-2 and is dead last in the Premier Division.
Good news for France's PSG. Despite not being in the starting line up, Kylian Mbappe scored his first two goals of the new season off the bench against Guingamp.
Finally this week, Germany's Bundesliga opens there season this weekend.
