This week sees the first Friday Night Football Match in the Premier League as Manchester United host Southampton at Old Trafford. Saints fans may not be happy about having to make the trip up from the South Coast during a work day but at least the neutrals should be treated to an enthralling match.
The English Football League is littered with teams who were once at the very top of the domestic game. Go through the Championship and even Leagues One and Two and you’ll find former Premier League teams and even teams who have scaled the heights of European competition.
The first weekend of the Premier League season did not go well for either of last season’s top two teams. Leicester were beaten 2-1 by a Hull side who are most people’s favourites to finish bottom of the pile while Arsenal conceded four goals at home in an exciting loss against Liverpool.
The first Premier League game of the weekend could well be the best of the lot as Liverpool visit North London to take on Tottenham.
Two of the four teams to have won both their opening matches of the Premier League season go head to head on Saturday afternoon at the KCOM Stadium.
