The 2020/21 Premier League season is well underway and, as ever, brings about a fresh set of intense ‘we meet again’ matches.
Though games may currently be playing behind closed doors, let’s talk about the key football rivalries and unmissable matches during the 2020/21 Premier League season.
1. Liverpool v Manchester City
Saturday 6th February 2021 at Anfield – 15:00
Both former Premier league champions, The Reds versus the Sky Blues is likely to stir up some intense football action at Anfield Stadium this season. Last season saw a string of unbelievable performances from Liverpool, who came top of the Premier League table 18 points ahead of Man City.
The Liverpool v Manchester City fixture last season, saw The Reds win 3-1 with Liverpool scoring just 6 minutes into the game.
Each team will be looking to secure the top spot in the Premier League once again; the first teams will be out and raring to grab the win. With two solid teams like Liverpool and City, this fixture will be one that you shouldn’t miss. Pure class football action from the former Champions of Europe and the Premier League Champions.
Saturday 27th February 2021 at Stamford Bridge – 15:00
Once again, Manchester United’s remained victorious against Chelsea in the 2019/20 Premier League season, winning 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will be looking to make a much-needed comeback on home soil. The opening games of the previous season seemed tough for Chelsea under manager Frank Lampard but having settled in nicely and brought in some exciting new players during the transfer window, this fixture is promised to provide pure entertainment and hopefully some wonderful goals.
Last year Chelsea finished one place below Man United, both on 66 points, so we’re hoping for a strong run for Chelsea securing to get back into the top 3 for 2020/21 Premier League season.
3. London Derby: Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday 13th March 2021 at Emirates Stadium – 15:00
Game faces are on for the strong rivalry from the two North London sides. The game will be the first time the two teams meet this season and both sides will be looking to dominate the game.
When these two North London teams meet each other there is guaranteed to be a yellow card thrown in the match. The minimum number of yellow cards per match is 3. I guess it’s all very heated as they both rival for North London.
Last season’s games against Arsenal were a mixed bag with Spurs winning 2-1 on home soil but drawing at Emirates. Will this next match give Arsenal the chance to level square in the 2020/21 Premier League season? Will North London be painted red or blue?
4. Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur
Wednesday 16th December 2020 at Anfield – 20:00
It was a difficult last season for Spurs who ended up finishing 7th in the Premier League table and losing both games against Liverpool. This season, however, Spurs appear to be back with a vengeance and the new additions of legend Gareth Bale and Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg seeming to provide a nice boost in the 2020/21 Premier League season so far.
Do Spurs have what it takes to conquer the former Premier League champions this time around?
