We're heading to week 8 of the English top flight and there are some interesting big games to be played so let's take a look at which ones to watch.Action gets back to the island once again after a what we can easily say under performance of the English teams in the Champions League. Firm favorites Arsenal once again saw themselves at the losing end of a group stage match in the CL, but this time on their own turf against a Greek side, Olympiacos. Another London club, Chelsea, saw their first defeat in the competition after a loss against Porto.
However, both clubs from Manchester, Man Utd and Man City managed to get away with scrappy wins, and at least somewhat shed a positive light on English football in Europe's most attractive club competition.
Let's see the most interesting matches that are upon us.
Manchester City vs NewcastleNewcastle is hawing a dreadful season yet again, managing to capture only three points in their seven games. Their only positive showing was against Mourinho's side, Chelsea, who are also having an awful start to the season themselves.
Their game is below pair and if their manager Steve McClaren doesn't do some miracle work in the near future there could be a boot waiting him sooner rather than later. And honestly, I can't see him perform any miracles in the upcoming match against Man City.
Pellegrini's man have now stumbled two matches in a row in Premiership, and a clash with the Newcastle is whats needed to turn their tides around in the competition. Also given the fact that Newcastle haven't won at Etihad since September 2000, this is a sure bet to beat the bookies, where beatthebookies.co can help you in doing just this.
I can't see McClaren's man getting away with anything from this match and an easy win by Man City on Etihad is how things will roll down in my eyes.
PREDICTION: Manchester City 3 - 0 Newcastle
Arsenal vs. Manchester UnitedLouis van Gal's side are currently on top of the table and are ahead of their London rivals by three points, who are currently lying in the fourth position with 13 points from seven matches.
This will truly be a super match on Super Sunday, where Wenger's man are looking to bounce back from yet another shock defeat in the CL on their own soil against underdogs Olympiackos, and prove to their fans that it was just a fluke, that this team has more potential than it is currently showing.
I believe that Wenger won't make the same mistake, again, and field Ospina ahead of Peter Chech between the sticks. This could prove vital in this game, as Arsenal look different without the world class Czech keeper this season. There is a lot of pressure on Arsenal in this match, which they need to channel in positive energy and add it to their game on Sunday.
On the other hand, club from Manchester are looking solid currently, and the performances from the likes of Juan Mata and the worlds' most expensive teenager, Anthony Martial, might just be enough to make things happen at the Emirates stadium. However, this team still has to find their identity on the field and their a game, problem is you still don't know who'll show to work on this Man Utd side on the given day.
So, a big match with two teams looking to get away from this one undefeated. Mine best prediction is that this will be a close game between these two and a very closed one on that matter.
PREDICTION: Arsenal 1 - 1 Manchester United
