With the Barclay’s English Premier League 2014-15 season well under way, we have already witnessed one of the biggest upsets of the season. Manchester United were upstaged at Old Trafford by Swansea City, confirming the common consensus that anything can happen in football. We are yet to have a big derby game, or a match between historic rivals, but there is plenty in the coming months. Check out my Best English Premier League Games 2014-15 Preview


Manchester City vs Liverpool, Monday August 23rd, City of Manchester Stadium

Runners up by only two points last season, Liverpool were spectacularly snubbed by Man City in the dying embers. The two sides will meet for the first time since last season, and it will be ‘The Reds’ making the journey to the City of Manchester stadium for the tie. City’s home form is going to be very hard to overcome.

Manuel Pelligrini’s squad has all the promise of last season still flowing, and the names to back it up. Liverpool at home are a very formidable force to reckon with, and especially when Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling are on form. You can call City the odds on favourite, but Liverpool have the home advantage.


Chelsea vs Arsenal, Sunday October 5th, Stamford Bridge

The North London derby is always a spectacle to behold, and is quite often a very gritty affair. Also a big consideration is that Chelsea drummed Arsenal 6-0 last season, and have recently signed their former midfield star Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. Now ‘The Gunners’ are making the travel to Stamford Bridge as they look to get revenge for their humiliating defeat against the Blues.

Expect hard tackles and tactical play from both sides; a situation I’m sure Jose Mourinho will relish on home turf.

Arsenal vs Manchester United, November 22nd, The Emirates Stadium

Always quite a cagey meeting, this mid-season pairing of old rivals could be very entertaining. United and Arsenal have put on some very rough, but also entertaining shows in the past. Given United’s recent form carried in to this season, and Arsenal’s usual placement of fourth in the table, the November meeting could prove a pivotal moment in the season for both teams.

‘The Gunners’ haven’t beaten United since 2011, and ‘The Red Devils’ striker Wayne Rooney has scored 8 goals against Arsenal in his time for the club. Keep an eye on this one though, as this tie has got ugly in the past.
