You can hear this noise the crowd at Goodison Park can be seen in the distance, with the Merseyside derby hanging on a knife’s edge. Follow it here:
After the dream comes the cold, hard reality. I saw the summer transfer window Major league clubs are spending more than in any other full season – and every exotic signing will spark a thousand fevered imaginations. Now it’s time to see how well they match.
After rejecting the Spurs uniform with a win on Wednesday, West Ham will fancy their chances of doing the same against an out-of-form Chelsea. Thomas Tuchel could use Declan’s Rice Derby to hand debuts to the fruit of last week’s trolley race: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Denis Zakaria.
Newcastle and Crystal Palace the head in their game stings from the corresponding late gutpunches in the middle of the week. If Eddie Howe is trying to turn the work side into an exciting side, then he should turn to Patrick Vieira for a plan. Vieira’s side not only have the best counter-attacker in the league in Wilfried Zaha, but also arguably the most attractive player in Eberechi Eze – but Newcastle now have their own languidly smooth forward in Alexandre Issac.
Brentford and Leeds have both spent the first month of the season trying and failing to reach their level. Both handed out heavy weights; both lost to averages. Will today’s meeting give us an idea of whether these sides are good? Almost certainly not.
No team scored fewer goals this season than the Wolves and has conceded just one less. Will this stingy trend be reversed by the meeting of the two sides led by Raul Jimenez and Che Adams? Or maybe we’ll see Saša Kalajdzic or Samuel Edozi? We’ll see soon.
And Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth both fresh off an almighty shellacking and their combined score for the past week would be a 17-1 loss. Could this be the first ever football match in which both sides lose? Stay tuned to find out.
