There is no rest for the weary in England's Premier League as the 2018-19 season is underway. In this first matchday, fans will be treated to the league's first titanic clash of the year as Arsenal hosts Manchester City from the Emirates. Manchester City will look to start its title defense on the right foot after putting up one of the finest seasons in Premier League history last year as it put up an astounding 100 points by winning 32 of 38 matches. While the rest of the league attempted to reload in order to give the Citizens a run for their money, Manchester City splashed plenty of cash of its own, signing winger Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City for a club-record $76.6 million. He'll be joining a strong attacking force that already includes the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero. As for Arsenal, it is a fresh start for a squad that finished in sixth last season, its worst finish since the 1994-95 season, two years before Arsene Wenger took … [Read more...] about Manchester City Arsenal Premier League free live stream, TV

By Joshua Robinson Joshua Robinson The Wall Street Journal BiographyJoshua Robinson @JoshRobinson23 [email protected] April 6, 2018 4:00 a.m. ET 0 COMMENTS Manchester City thought it had the highest-profile week of its season all figured out. In the space of three games and six days, it would knock Liverpool out of the Champions League, book its spot in Europe’s final four, and clinch the Premier League title with a win over Manchester United on Saturday. That was the plan. All of it went to pieces in one disastrous half-hour Wednesday night at Anfield. By losing the first leg of its Champions League quarterfinal 3-0, City has now scrambled what was supposed to be one of the most glorious weeks in its history. Which leaves City manager Pep Guardiola with a dilemma: Should he rest key players against United this weekend to have the freshest possible team against Liverpool next Tuesday? Or does he concede that the Champions League might be a lost cause and … [Read more...] about Manchester City’s Consolation: the Premier League Title
JUST when Arsenal fans thought it could not get any worse. Their season of disaster hit a new low with an eighth defeat of 2018. Arsenal fans even chanted for Arsene Wenger to be sacked after goals from Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray put Brighton 2-0 up. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back before the break but despite huffing and puffing, the visitors could not grab a draw. Wenger’s time is up, surely. Dunk had scored four own goals this season – and has equalled the Premier League – and he came close to notching a fifth one. He swung his boot at the ball – it could have gone anywhere – and he put the effort over the bar. Yet just a minute later, he actually put the ball in the right net with a clinical finish. Shane Duffy beat Petr Cech to Pascal Gross’ corner and the ball fell for Dunk to score impressively. It was Dunk’s first goal at the correct end since he scored in a 2-1 win at Fulham in January 2017. Jose Izquierdo caused problems … [Read more...] about Brighton 2 Arsenal 1: Petr Cech’s pair of first-half howlers see Gunners officially fall out of the Premier League title race
FIVE wins and Manchester City will be crowned Premier League champions- it’s that simple for Pep Guardiola’s dominant side. Standing in their way this weekend are Chelsea, who need a victory to ensure they don’t get cut adrift in the race for Champions League football. Defeat to Manchester United last weekend left the Blues outside of the top four. They’re two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have a winnable home fixture against Huddersfield on Saturday. If Spurs win that game the pressure will be heaped on Antonio Conte’s side. They can’t afford another defeat, although halting, albeit temporarily, City’s march to the title will be a near impossible task. Guardiola’s side have dropped just two points at the Etihad all season. They’ve conceded just 10 goals on their own patch too. Chelsea’s task will be incredibly difficult. Sunday’s fixture, which will kick-off at 4pm and be shown live on Sky Sports, … [Read more...] about Manchester City need five wins to claim the Premier League title… but can Chelsea beat Pep Guardiola’s side on Sunday to save top-four bid?
