It’s less than a month to the start of the English Premier League season, the most-watched football league in the world. With a raft of new elite managers and the increased spending power of the clubs, the prestigious tournament is set to be very very exciting this year. Most teams will be eager to hit the ground running, and below are take a look at some of the most important games in the early rounds which might have a substantial impact on the entire league campaign.
5. Arsenal vs. Liverpool (Sunday, August 14)
The opening weekend witnesses two of the traditional big English clubs go head to head. For Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp, this is a chance to beat one of the potential competitors for a Champions League place. On the other hand, a large number of the Arsenal fanbase are already disillusioned by their team’s lack of investment in this transfer window, and the situation will likely reach unprecedented heights in this game if the Gunners leave the pitch with anything less than 3 points.
