Match Day 4
Manchester City v Everton
For the last game before the summer break, both teams really need the 3 points to get away from the relegation zone. Everton are currently looking for their 1st win with 2 points in 3 while City got it on Sunday away at Arsenal to climb 2 places up the table in 6th position. City are the form team and also have already beaten Everton this season in the Conti Cup.
Match Day 2
Arsenal v Birmingham
This game was postponed due to Champions League involvement. Again, the FA would never schedule a game on a Tuesday or a Wednesday when men’s Champions League tie are played. They are actually forbidden by UEFA to do so as we heard this season when a team complained about playing on Monday due to those rules.
It is already a huge game because Blues would be top of League should they win that game or would climb up to 2nd place in case of a draw. They are on a high following their win over title contenders Chelsea on Sunday.
Arsenal also need a win to kickstart their season because they are currently bottom of the table and this is an unacceptable position to be in for a club of Arsenal’s stature. A win would take them up to 3rd place depending on the number of goals scored for and against. A draw or a defeat would certainly be a clear indication that Arsenal could be dragged into the relegation battle for their first time ever.
