There’s still no plan for fans to return to stadiums, but Manchester City fans everywhere have surely been singing their clubs famous anthem as they go about their days with an extra pep in their step. City have won 13 Premier League games in a row, 19 in a row in all competitions, and have done so with an arrogance and ease that has rarely been seen in the English game. Fun Fact: Premier League VPN is one of the most searched phrases on Google.
What Pep Guardiola has cultivated at Manchester City this season is nothing short of remarkable. After a slow start, a mixed first 12 games that saw them drop points in surprising places, City clicked into gear and began to play a stunning brand of position-less football that only a heathen would fail to find enjoyable. Unless you’re a diehard fan of the Gammon and Gravy brand of football inflicted on the world by the Roy Hodgson’s and Tony Pulis’ of this world you have to be casting admiring glances at the non stop movement, incisive passing and courageous football. There’s no pointless possession. Everything is done with purpose. Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Kevin DeBruyne all working in perfect tandem, with Joao Cancelo seemingly everywhere and Rodri the lone reference point at the base of midfield.
The title race may be as good as over, but there’s still plenty to play for this season in terms of top four spots and the relegation battle. As ever, we’re previewing the three games that stand out as the most appealing watches this weekend.
⚽ Manchester City vs West Ham United
📅 Saturday 27 February 2021
⏰ 1230 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ BT Sport Live Streaming
City are must-see TV and it’s as simple as that. You have to watch them because they’re doing something remarkable in a remarkable fashion. There’s an old saying that without real ugliness in the world, we would never appreciate true beauty. With that in mind, thanks for your services to football Neil Warnock, now we can all fully appreciate this City team.
13 wins in a row doesn’t happen by fluke. City co-own the current Premier League record for the most consecutive wins with 18, accomplished during their 100 point season. Liverpool tied that record last season and City seem to have taken that as a personal slight. They look well placed to cruise past that figure this season, with no team looking capable of even competing with them.
Aiding to their brilliant form has been their lack of long term injuries this season. City have managed to avoid suffering the injury issues that other clubs have struggled with this season. In part because, in the words of Pep Guardiola “We have lots of money to buy loads of brilliant players”. Guardiola has done an exceptional job rotating his team and managing his squad, something other managers would do well to learn from. City’s only absentee this weekend is likely to be Nathan Ake.
As great as City have been, Pep Guardiola isn’t the manager of the season. That honour must go to David Moyes so far. West Ham United are currently in 4th place. Just stop and think about that, then repeat it. West Ham are 4th. And we’re two-thirds of the way through the season. This is not some fluke early season run of form, this is has been sustained quality over 25 games. A team tipped by many, myself included, to battle against relegation this season have played their way into the Champions League race. Whether or not they can finish in the European spots is academic, West Ham have outperformed expectations more than anyone else and full credit for that must go to Moyes. With the Rice-Soucek in central midfield setting the platform for it all, The Hammers have been solid at the back and efficient in attack.
The Hammers haven’t fared too badly with injuries this season but they will be without Angelo Ogbonna once again this weekend, along with Andriy Yarmolenko and long term absentee Arthur Masuaku.
⚽ Leeds United vs Aston Villa
📅 Saturday 27 February 2021
⏰ 1730 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
Yes, Leeds United again. Of course, Leeds United again. Always, Leeds United again. How can you not enjoy watching this team play? They’re a stark contrast to Manchester City, who are calculated and similar in their approach to a groundbreaking scientist. Leeds are more akin to an artist who flings paint on canvas from across the room in a display of frenzied genius. While City are Isaac Newton, Leeds are Jackson Pollock.
Marcelo Bielsa has brought his team into the Premier League, refused to alter his approach even slightly and Leeds now sit in the top half. A fantastic achievement in their first season back in the big time. Bielsa-ball is very much a team sport, that relies on each individual player to contribute to the success of the machine. Leeds have had excellent performers in many areas of the pitch this season, but one stands out above the rest. One who, in his first season in English football, looks like he may well be a player who could grace any team in the land. Raphael Dias Belloli, better known as Raphinha, has been one of the very best players in the league over the past three months and if he keeps this form up it might somewhat of a struggle for Leeds to keep hold of him this summer.
Gaetano Berardi and Adam Forshaw have been out all season, and remain so, but Leeds injury issues don’t end there. Midfield lynchpin Kalvin Phillips is still out, as are summer signings Rodrigo and Robin Koch and youngster Ian Poveda. The newest members of the walking wounded at Elland Road are Jamie Shackleton and Mateusz Klich who both sustained injuries in recent games.
Aston Villa had an excellent first half of the season but haven’t looked the same team since the turn of the year. They seemed to lose their mojo when Ross Barkley got injured and even though he’s back in the team now, neither he nor his team are functioning at the same level. Jack Grealish’s performances had dropped off massively before he picked up his recent injury and with those two struggling for form, Villa have lacked creativity and thrust in attack. Teams have also figured out that one side of Villa’s back four is much stronger than the other and have begun to target Matt Targett and Tyrone Mings more frequently. Mings in particular has long been a weak link in the Villa backline and though Ezri Konsa has been exceptional next to him, Konsa can’t cover up all the errors all the time. Villa will need to tighten up if they want to avoid being cut apart by Raphinha and co.
Grealish will have a fitness test but is unlikely to be fit enough to start at time of writing. Joining him on the sidelines are Matty Cash and Kortney Hause. Wesley remains a long term absentee, 14 months after sustaining an injury that was expected to sideline him for no more than 10 months.
⚽ Chelsea vs Manchester United
📅 Sunday 28 February 2021
⏰ 1630 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed his match-ups with Frank Lampard, with three wins and a draw from their five games against each other. When he looked at United’s fixture list at the start of the season, he may have tagged this game as one he expected to win. Unfortunately for Ole, Lampard is gone and Chelsea are a very prospect under new manager Thomas Tuchel, a manager he has faced he has previously faced four times, splitting those games with two wins and two defeats. Those games took place in the Champions League when Tuchel was in charge of PSG and the Premier League is very different.
Tuchel remains unbeaten as Chelsea manager having won six and drawn two of his eight games in charge. Chelsea have played with far more purpose and design than they did under Lampard, who’s tactical instructions seemed to amount to “Go out there and express yourselves” and not a whole lot else. He has stuck to a 3-4-3 variation as he looks to instill his principles of play into the squad. He’s experimented with the personnel, using different combinations at the back, in midfield and attack, as he looks to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the squad he inherited, but the shape has remained largely the same. So far, the struggles in attack that cost Lampard his job have remained and Chelsea have relied on penalties to turn two draws into wins and a defeat into a draw, but everything else is looking a lot more purposeful than it did under Lampard.
Chelsea have been very fortunate with injuries this season largely because they, like Manchester City, have lots of money to buy lots of players so they can rotate frequently. Thiago Silva is the only player currently injured and the defense has actually looked more solid in his absence so his absence might actually be a positive at this point in time.
United have developed a habit this season of winning games that they’ve played terribly in. They impressed nobody in their 3-1 win over Newcastle and were very fortunate not to have a competent referee and VAR overseeing the game. They do come into this game in second place though, and in Bruno Fernandes they have a footballer of the year contender. Fernandes has been a difference maker since they he joined United, and has racked up 34 goals in just 59 games, with 22 in 37 this season. Astonishing tallies for a midfielder. He’s not just a goal taker either, he has 13 assists this season to follow on from the 8 he contributed after joining last January. 34 goals and 21 assists in 59 games would be an amazing return for a striker, for a midfielder it’s pretty much unheard of. United will need him to be at his very best if they want to return home from London with three points this weekend.
The Red Devils will make the trip without the injury Paul Pogba and the Covid pair of Edinson Cavani and Donny Van DeBeek, while Phil Jones remains sidelined as he has all season. Scott McTominay will have a fitness test and is expected to be part of the squad.
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.
