Premier League Match Day 19 Preview | 2022-23 Season


The Christmas holidays are over but the Premier League season carries on regardless, at least for the next few days. Premier League Match Day 19 will be shown by pay-TV broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport in the UK with match highlights available free on BBC Sport with Match of the Day.

The upcoming break for the FA Cup will give clubs a chance to rest players before the season picks up a truly hectic schedule that will continue through to the end of May.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur Premier League Match Day 19

Two teams that haven’t started the second part of the season in the manner they would have hoped after the World Cup break will meet at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night, with one team desperate for a win and the other just hoping to continue making progress.

Palace are in year two under Patrick Vieira, year two since their big reset. To date, it’s gone very well. While their league positions aren’t an improvement of where they were under Roy Hodgson they have proven to themselves that you don’t need to embrace gammon and gravy in order to finish 13th in the Premier League. Palace are, for the first time since Ian Wright and Mark Bright plundered goals in South London, a fun team to watch. With Wilf Zaha continuing to get better despite having turned 30, and two young stars in Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise, the Eagles play an attractive brand of football that causes problems for even the best defences in the league.

There’s still work to do for Vieira and Dougie Freedman, still areas of the team to improve, but they’ve done an outstanding job in just 18 months together. This season hasn’t gone perfectly, they had a nightmare pre-season due to Covid restrictions and vaccine laws, but they sit 11th in the table and are looking up at teams they could potentially overtake rather than looking down at those below him. Their restart to the season didn’t go great, getting walloped 3-0 at home by Fulham while having two men sent off, but they rebounded well to beat Bournemouth 2-0 down on the south coast.

Prior to the break Spurs developed a worrying habit of not starting to play until the game was 55-60 minutes old. Newcastle, Sporting, Bournemouth, Marseille, Liverpool and Leeds all took advantage of this and though they were able to rescue games against all bar Newcastle and Liverpool, it has to have been something that drove Antonio Conte mad. You would have thought they’d have come out of the break with better concentration and stopped allowing themselves to fall behind cheaply.

Not so much.

Brentford went 2-0 up before Tottenham got their act together and they simply didn’t bother getting their act together against Aston Villa. You know things are going wrong when a Unai Emery managed team beats you comfortably on your home patch, given the Spaniard’s notoriously terrible record away from home. Tottenham have issues in defence, and with their goalkeeper, but they also need Hueng Min Son to remember that he is one of the league’s best players and stop playing like he’s got a bad case of imposter syndrome. This trip to Selhurst Park is must-win for Spurs after two poor results that have seen them drop out of the top four. Tottenham need to get their act together because they, along with Liverpool, are the two teams most reliant on the riches of the Champions League to help fund transfers that can improve them and turn them into title contenders.

Premier League Match Day 19 | Chelsea vs Manchester City

Thursday 5 January | 2000 GMT |Sky Sports Live Streaming

Chelsea vs Manchester City Premier League Match Day 19.

Speaking of teams that need to get their act together.

Chelsea’s season has been a predictable disaster thus far. Todd Boehly’s decision to try and buy an entirely new team for a manager, and then sack that manager a week after the transfer market closed in order to replace him with someone completely unproven at the elite level, was never likely to pan out in the short term. Boehly spent roughly £265million on eight new senior purchases and one loanee, and has decided that wasn’t enough as Chelsea have done deals for David Datro Fofana and Andrey Santos for a combined £25million, as well as agreeing to spend £65million next summer on Christopher Nkunku, £35million on Benoit Badiashile in a deal that should be wrapped up this week and at the same time bidding a Premier League record £110million for Enzo Fernandez from Benfica. If you’re keeping track, that’s roughly £500million on players in under eight months. Utterly ridiculous.

Unsurprisingly, the chaotic approach of Boehly has led to an unbalanced team with no identity and no clear vision of how to work together on the pitch. Graham Potter is a highly regarded coach, but does he command the respect of the players? It doesn’t seem like he’s gotten full buy-in from the entire group, and it doesn’t seem like he really knows how to use a lot of the players at his disposal. Chelsea sit 9th in the Premier League right now and their 2-0 win against hapless Bournemouth on Boxing Day is their lone Premier League win they defeated Aston Villa back in mid-October. Potter has won only four of his 10 Premier League matches, with three of them being his first three league games in charge. Three straight defeats before the break raised questions, and the draw with Nottingham Forest in their last game made them validated doubts over whether this team were gelling and adapting to the new manager. The answer should be to let the coach take stock of the players he has and work harder on the training ground, but Boehly has decided to just throw more money at the problem and hope for the best.

Manchester City also love to throw money around like it’s going out of fashion and their record breaking total package for Erling Haaland was hailed as the move to get them over the hump in the Champions League. The Norwegian has scored for fun, 21 already in the Premier League and 27 in all competitions, but there’s a strong argument to be made that adding a player of his ilk has made them worse as a team. City are significantly weaker defensively than they have been in previous seasons, and with the sole focus of the attack seemingly being to create chances for Haaland it’s appears that the rest of the squad, bar Phil Foden, have forgotten that they also need to score goals. Foden is City’s second top scorer this season with seven in the Premier League and nobody else has scored more than three.

Foden’s reward for trying to share the goalscoring burden? He’s been dropped for the past two matches. Jack Grealish has started both games, as Guardiola continues to try and justify spending £100million on the ex-Aston Villa player. Grealish ended the Leeds game with two assists but played terribly and missed two complete sitters. City ran out 3-1 but it wasn’t nearly as comfortable as the scoreline might suggest. Against Everton Grealish was an empty shirt and why it took Guardiola until the 87th minute to put him out of his misery and introduce Foden is anyone’s guess. City appear to be missing a Leroy Sane type of pacey wide player who can stretch the field for them but unless they buy one in January they will have to find an internal solution as they attempt to chase down Arsenal and win a third consecutive Premier League title, and a fifth in total for Guardiola.

How can I watch Sky Sports Premier League 22/23 matches live?

If you’re a diehard fan of the Premier League, then Sky Sports is undoubtedly the best place to watch. Not only do they show more live games than any other broadcaster – 128 in total – but their dedicated channels mean that you won’t miss a single match. And with packages starting at just £44 per month, it’s easy to see why they’re one of the most popular choices for fans.

Whether you’re looking for comprehensive coverage or just want to catch the odd game here and there, Sky Sports has you covered. So if you’re a Premier League fan, there’s really no better place to watch your favourite team in action.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll also get access on your phone, tablet and/or laptop via Sky Go. See all four options on the Sky website.

If you don’t want to get locked into a Sky contract and satellite dish on your home, that’s OK. The NOW (formerly NOW TV) streaming service is another alternative offered by Sky. It’s now available on a number of devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, Chromecast, and even gaming consoles.

A Day Pass allows you to watch all Sky Sports channels for 24 hours and costs £11.99; this is ideal for single-occasion visits. If you plan on watching every weekend, the Month Pass makes much more sense. It will be available for £25 per month for 12 months before reverting to its usual price of £33.99 after that – unless you cancel.

This offer also includes a month of free Now Boost, which adds 1080p video and Dolby 5.1 surround sound, removes ads and lets you stream on three devices at the same time (instead of the usual 2). After that, it’ll cost you an extra £5 per month.
