As Manchester City continue to set themselves apart from the rest of the league, having thumped defending Champions Liverpool 4-1 last weekend, the Premier League remains incredibly tight with only 10 points separating 2nd place and 9th place. Premier League matches are shown by pay-TV broadcasters Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and with match highlights available free on BBC Sport with Match of the Day. Need a Premier League VPN?
Even then 10 points doesn’t give the full story, as 9th place Aston Villa have two games in hand on 2nd place Manchester United. Fun Fact: Premier League VPN is one of the most searched phrases on Google.
It’s just as tight below the top nine, with 10th placed Leeds sitting only 9 points ahead of 17th placed Burnley. A couple of wins for any team can see them rise quickly up the table, while a bad run of form could see teams looking over their shoulders if Fulham ever decide to win a game again.
This weekend, there are some outstanding games scheduled across the whole weekend and as always we’ve decided to preview three games to give you a taster for what’s to come.
⚽ Leicester City vs Liverpool
📅 Saturday 12 February 2021
⏰ 1230 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ BT Sport Live Streaming
If Brendan Rodgers was looking for the perfect time to get his first win against Liverpool since being dismissed as manager in 2015, he may well have found it. The Reds visit the King Power stadium in uncharacteristically bad form, having won only two of their last nine games and gone from being top at Christmas to 10 points behind league leaders Manchester City – who also have a game in hand.
The Foxes have won only two of their last five games and tasted defeated in their last home game, a 3-1 reversal at the hands of Leeds United. It was around this point of last season where Leicester began to fall apart after a brilliant first half to the season and would win only four games between matchday 24 and matchday 38 inclusive. This is matchday 24 of the current season and Rodgers won’t want a repeat. It would be unfair on the manager and his team if that happened because Leicester have done fantastically well this season and can lay claim to the honour of being the only team in the league who have not ended a single week outside the top 4. Despite injuries to key players, they have found ways to get the job done time and again while playing a largely excellent brand of football.
Leicester got a boost when Wilf Ndidi and Jamie Vardy returned to the starting lineup for the midweek FA Cup contest with Brighton but suffered a blow as James Justin was ruled out with a knee injury. Wes Morgan, Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana and Dennis Praet are all expected to miss out as well.
Liverpool went 68 games at Anfield without a defeat. They’ve now lost three in a row at their home stadium. Luckily for them, their away form has been better and they have won four of their last five away games. For a team who have been decimated by injuries this season they can take solace in the fact that they are still 4th in the table despite their terrible recent run of form, but they will be aware that it can’t continue for much longer as Chelsea, reinvigorated under new manager Thomas Tuchel, are only one point behind them. As are West Ham, while Everton are just three points behind with two games in hand. Liverpool need to turn their form around and this game would be the ideal one to do it in. January signing Ozan Kabak could make his debut after a full week’s training.
Diogo Jota and Naby Keita are back in training but not viewed as likely to be involved here, though they could be included on the bench. Long term absentees Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez were recently joined by Joel Matip in being ruled out for the season but Liverpool, with Jota and Keita back in the mix, are in their best position from an injury perspective since mid October.
⚽ Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
📅 Saturday 13 February 2021
⏰ 1730 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
Jose Mourinho has a habit of developing rivalries with other managers that often cross the boundaries between professional rivalry and personal dislike. During his first stint in England he and Arsene Wenger became bitter foes. Mourinho’s non stop barbs unsettled Wenger and caused the usually dignified Frenchman to lose his temper. During his spells at Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Mourinho developed similar hostility with Pep Guardiola, which stemmed from the Barcelona board deciding to promote Pep to replace Frank Rijkaard rather than appoint Mourinho to his dream job. When, in the summer of 2016, Mourinho and Guardiola took jobs at Manchester United and Manchester City respectively that hostility was re-ignited and has never really gone away, though the rivalry is no longer all that competitive. Guardiola has won two league titles and is on his way to a third, while Mourinho was dismissed by United and not manages Tottenham.
City have been in incredible form of late, stringing together a run of 10 Premier League wins in a row, 14 in all competitions. They’re winning games through sheer domination, crushing opponents with the pressing and relentless ball movement. They haven’t blown teams away by scoring goals for fun as they did in the past, they haven’t needed to. Defensively they have been exceptional with the pairing of John Stones and the brilliant Ruben Dias forming an excellent central defensive pairing, and holding midfielder Rodri beginning to show the ability that prompted City to spend almost £60million on him in the summer of 2019. With Joao Cancelo acting as a fullback/midfielder hybrid to devastating effect,, Bernardo Silva rediscovering his best form and Ilkay Gundogan playing like he’s the best footballer in Europe, City have been able to overcome the absence of Kevin De Bruyne.
De Bruyne is joined by Sergio Aguero and Nathan Ake on the medium term absentee list, while Fernandinho, Ruben Dias and Rodri all have knocks but are expected to be available for this weekend.
While City have won 10 in a row in the Premier League, Spurs have suffered five defeats in their last ten contrasted with only three wins. When they travelled to Merseyside in mid December to play Liverpool, they were in first place in the table, whereas they now sit in 8th position. That’s unacceptable for a squad of that quality, and Mourinho will know that. He wasn’t hired to finish in 8th, or even in the Europa League spots again. It’s Champions League or bust for Jose this season and while Spurs have a good chance to qualify by winning this season’s Europa League, the unpredictability of that competition mandates that qualification through a top 4 position is a more sensible pathway. Spurs beat West Brom 2-0 on Sunday to end a run of three straight defeats, they need to start stringing together runs of three straight wins if they don’t want this season to get away from them.
Giovani LoCelso is a long term absentee and he’s joined by Sergio Reguillon in being ruled out for this game. Serge Aurier is also a doubt for this weekend but will have a late fitness test to determine his availability.
⚽ Arsenal vs Leeds United
📅 Sunday 14 February 2021
⏰ 1630 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
The George Graham Derby! For decades these clubs would face each other twice a season and kick the living daylights out of each other. From the 60s through the 70s, taking a break in the 80s, and then re-engaging in the 90s up until Leeds collapse and disappearance into the lower leagues wilderness in 2004, Arsenal and Leeds partook in countless violent encounters. All going well this weekend will see the two clubs engage in a football match, rather than a fight, with both sides playing excellent football at the moment. For Leeds, they’ve been playing outstanding football all season. Bielsa has brought them up to the Premier League and immediately established them as a must-watch team. For Arsenal, it’s only a recent thing. For months, Arsenal were a struggle to watch but since Saka and Smith-Rowe became regular starters they have been very entertaining.
After defeat away to Everton on December 19th many media talking heads began talking about the potential of Mikel Arteta losing his job as Arsenal manager. From then until their bizarre defeat away to Wolves on February 2nd, they went seven games unbeaten in the league with five wins. They went from a team struggling to create anything in attack to a team playing free-flowing football and scoring goals for fun. Their good run came to an end as they had two players sent off in a 2-1 defeat at Molineaux. With Bernd Leno one of those sent off, Arsenal missed him in the 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa last weekend. Coming off those back-to-back defeats the Gunners will be desperate to get themselves back to winning ways this weekend.
The Gunners will have Leno and David Luiz back from suspension, and Thomas Partey is expected to be fit. Kieran Tierney is the only Arsenal player expected to miss this weekend’s game.
Leeds remain the most fun team to watch in the league and have won three of their last four games, with wins over Newcastle, Leicester and Crystal Palace. They’ve improved defensively in recent weeks while retaining their outstanding attacking nature, with Raphinha taking a starring role for them. The summer arrival from Rennes has been magnificent of late, unleashing his full arrays of flicks and tricks, combined with brilliant dribbling and incisive passing. Leeds are getting great production from their wide players in Raphinha and Jack Harrison, and with Patrick Bamford showing up the many people who doubted his ability to lead the line for a Premier League club, they’ve scored goals at at an enviable rate.
Worryingly for Leeds, they have a growing injury list. Adam Forshaw and Gaetano Berardi have missed the whole season, and summer arrivals Diego Llorente and Robin Koch have been ruled out for the foreseeable future. Rodrigo and Ian Poveda-Ocampo have suffered recent injuries and expected to miss out this weekend. Kalvin Phillips and Pablo Hernandez both have knocks but should be ok to play.
These are just some of the games available to you this weekend. With so many games to choose from, the worry is wasting time on the wrong game. We’ll try and guide you in the right direction so that all you need to do is sit back, turn on your Liberty Shield VPN, settle in, and enjoy the games.
