The Premier League kicked off last weekend with some fantastic results. Manchester City bagged all three points with a Haaland brace, as some rivals dropped crucial points.
Manchester United welcomed prime B… Brighton to the Theatre of No Hope and Leaky Rooves, as they got panned by Pascal Groß and Danny Wellbeck – which if you read my last piece, is ironic.
The hero of the hour for Brighton, however, was their Twitter admin with some corkers for the ages. They had their death grip and refused to let go.
Meanwhile Liverpool got bullied by Fulham, Alexander-Arnold had a game of “he’s behind you” with Mitrovic and Van Donkey-Kong was dribbled past for the first time ever in history……tumbleweed.
Liverpool did manage to pull back two fluke goals to undeservedly savour a point at Craven Cottage. Disappointedly, Mitrovic didn’t celebrate his goal with a shushing gesture in TAA’s face.
Anyway, back to the big boys. Manchester City played away at West Ham and took the lead with Haalands first Premier League goal, a penalty awarded to him after Areola ninja grabbed his feet in the box.
He was cool and calm and slotted it into the left. His second came after a typical KDB pass that bypassed the West Ham midfield and defence, fans couldn’t help but be elated that we now have someone to finish those exact chances.
But this weekend we are back at the Etihad. The moment we have all been waiting for, a Haaland home debut and our boys back on home turf.
It’s hard to predict a starting XI that’s different from the one that started Sunday. However, if we know Pep, he’ll switch something up.
