THE PREMIER LEAGUE IS BACK.... YES. Those were the words ringing in my head all through yesterday and today. After a long hiatus, club football returns, and now everything can go back to normal. I earlier made a #threadstorm on LeoFinance of my predictions of where all clubs would end up come next May. You can read it here. It was as you'd expect. The previous winners still doing their thing, but there are a few surprises here and there.
The season started with City reasserting their dominance again yesterday against newly Promoted side Burnley. A brace from their Norwegian star and a goal from Rodrigo ensured all three points for Pep Guardiola's side. That makes it twice in a row that Erling Haaland has scored twice in the opening fixture. What a robot, xd. The game was pretty much one-sided, as it looked like one of those nights where City didn't seem like they would be having any problems as club Legend, Vincent Kompany's return was bittersweet. Albeit, Burnley put up a fight, it looked like a perfect night for the Citizens with the only blemish being the injury of Kevin Debryune.
