After something of a disastrous International break for some clubs, the Premier League is back for Round 4. Premier League 2021/22 matches will once again be 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?
The Premier League returns this weekend but the ramifications of the international break will be widely felt this weekend between players who picked up injuries, players who will be forced to quarantine after returning from red listed countries, players who got caught up in a military coup and players who could miss out because the Brazilian FA are having a tantrum over Premier League clubs refusing to release players because of the necessary quarantine after their return. Talks are still ongoing between FIFA and the Premier League but at time of writing clubs are planning for the weekend without their Brazilians, bar Everton who the Brazilian FA have exempt from their tantrum because Everton caved on Richarlison going to the Olympics. Fun Fact: Premier League VPN is one of the most searched phrases on Google.
There’s plenty of good games this weekend, but the arrangement of the games is very strange and you’d question whether or not the broadcasters have made the best decisions with regards to the games they will be showing this weekend.
The Liberty Shield Premier League preview returns to whet your appetite with our pick of the three games that you have to watch this weekend.
⚽ Cristiano Ronaldo vs Newcastle United
📅 Saturday 11 September 2021
⏰ 1500 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ No UK Coverage – International IPTV Streaming Only
HE’S BACK. HE’S BACK. THE DREAM RETURN. HE’S BACK.
In case you weren’t aware, Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Manchester United after a 12 year loan spell spent at Real Madrid and Juventus. The Manchester United twitter account has tweeted a reminder every single hour since it’s happened, there’s been hyperbole over his impact from a financial point of view, there’s been blatant lies about his impact on jersey sales and there’s been a media blackout on everything else as he takes focus. The way this weekend’s game has been billed, you’d think he was taking on Newcastle by himself. Strangely, Sky have not moved everything around to have this game on TV in the UK but there’ll be plenty of other ways to watch if you’ve got your Liberty Shield VPN turned on.
Manchester United have taken seven points from their first three games but have not impressed in the last two and were incredibly fortunate not to get soundly beaten by Wolves. A terrible refereeing display, some poor finishing and an in-form David DeGea rescued the victory for the Red Devils. With Fred banned because of the Brazilian FA, neither half of McFred will patrol the midfield for United which could mean Pogba plays in the double pivot, something that hasn’t worked this season, or Nemanja Matic and Donny Van De Beek get the chance to stake their claims. Marcus Rashford is out following surgery and Jadon Sancho is a doubt so Pogba may play on the left, with Bruno Fernandes as the 10 and Mason Greenwood on the right, Cristiano is expected to lead the line.
Newcastle have taken one point from three games, and looked very lethargic thus far. Steve Bruce will never be popular with the fans because of his style of football, and because he’s seen as Mike Ashley’s stooge, but Bruce deserved more over the summer than merely signing a player they had on loan last year. Newcastle needed additions but instead they’re rolling out the same team as last season and hoping nobody notices. With an injury to Callum Wilson meaning Newcastle have no recognised goalscorer available this weekend it’s hard to see them taking anything, other than a defeat, home from their trip to Manchester.
⚽ Leicester City vs Manchester City
📅 Saturday 11 September 2021
⏰ 1500 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ No UK Coverage – International IPTV Streaming Only
This should have been one of the marquee matches of the weekend. It should be televised on Sky or BT but it’s not. This is two of the five best teams in the Premier League, they deserve for this game to be put on centre stage. It could easily have been the early or late kickoff on Saturday, or the early match on Sunday. This is probably the most enticing game of the weekend overall.
Leicester have made an iffy start to the season and even though they have taken six points from their three games, they won’t be pleased with their performances. They were very fortunate to beat Wolves, with Adama Traore spurning some glorious chances to cancel out Jamie Vardy’s early opener. They got demolished by West Ham, and then were again very lucky in their win over Norwich. Their defense has been a problem, with Evans, Fofana and Vestergaard hurt they’ve been forced to play Daniel Amartey out of position and that has had a massive effect on Caglar Soyuncu who’s form has fallen off a cliff. They also haven’t been themselves going forward but with the talent at his disposal you’d expect Brendan Rodgers to figure it out going forward but he will have concerns over that defence.
City have injury issues, Covid issues and Brazilian FA issues. Ederson and Gabriel Jesus are set to miss out, and backup keeper Zach Steffan is still recovering from Covid which means that Scott Carson, who has played one Premier League game in the past decade and one game in total in the past two years, will start in goal. They are also set to be without Kevin DeBruyne and Phil Foden through injuries but Bernardo Silva looked lively during the international break and they have £100mil Jack Grealish to rely on. They’ll rely on goals from non-strikers, as they did last season, and with Leicester’s defensive issues they should be able to create plenty of chances. They were hammered in this fixture last season and Pep Guardiola will be seeking revenge.
⚽ Leeds United vs Liverpool
📅 Sunday 12 September 2021
⏰ 1630 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
Bielsa vs Klopp, with fans. This is what football is all about. A packed Elland Road will welcome Liverpool for the first time in 18 years and fortunately, Sky did have the foresight to televise this one. Last season these sides met on the opening day, and played out a thriller. They met again as Liverpool bumbled and stumbled towards the end of the season and played out a draw with a late Diego Llorente header rescuing a point for the home side.
Leeds have made a slightly disappointing start to the season but have once again had to deal with the type of injury bad luck that interrupted their campaign last time out. Diego Llorente was key to their impressive end to the season as he put injury issues behind him but they have surfaced again and caused him to miss time this season. They’ve also got Covid issues affecting Junior Firpo and Mateusz Klich and the Brazilian FA nonsense stopping them from playing Raphinha. Their defeat to Manchester United on the opening day was embarrassing but they have rebounded with two draws and will look to build momentum this weekend.
Liverpool have their own issues to deal with, as they will likely be without three Brazilians. Alisson and Fabinho fall foul of the five day ban, while Bobby Firmino is injured. Caoimhin Kelleher is likely to start in goal, which is less than ideal given how little football he’s played in the past six months. He’s second choice for Ireland and didn’t play a minute over the international break, and suffered a stomach injury which cost him most of the back end of last season. Liverpool will have their first choice backline, but will have to patch things together in midfield and will have absolutely no depth upfront which is never ideal.
