It is all about English Premier League now

It is that time of the year when late night tele in urban India is dedicated solely to football. Yes, EPL or the English Premier League has begun and revived the fan rivalries not just in the Great Britain, but also in this former colony.

Fans here have their own predictions, favorites and thoughts on what players and teams to watch out for. We have two brothers, Ankit (Manchester United supporter) and Rahil (Real Madrid loyalist & Chelsea supporter for the EPL) Thakkar, fans, battling it out at home. Because they support totally different teams


Rahil: Battle at the top could be between Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham. Chelsea has the best chance of winning… battle for the 4th place is also interesting to watch out for with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool in the mix.

Ankit: Title will probably head to Manchester..Pep has done well in the transfer window..with players probably more adjusted to his style of play now in his second season.
The red half of Manchester have signed players in two positions which they desperately required. Upfront they bought last years 2nd highest goal scorer in the premier league and in matic they have bought a player who can bring out the best of Paul pogba.

Players to lookout for:


  • Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United, Alvaro Morata at Chelsea, Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal… and then, of course there is Paul Pogba in his second season of Premier League…
  • Other players are – Alexis Sanchez, Harry Kane, Dele Alliand Kevin de Bruyne.


  • Romelu Lukaku – Man United have splashed the cash on him and he needs to show everyone who doubt his capabilities, that he can handle the goal scoring burden.
  • Paul Pogba – This is his second season; probably with less defensive duties, the league would probably see his best.
  • Gabriel Jesus – He was quite impressive in the few games that he played and now he can show his talent to the world if he stays injury free this season.
  • Harry Kane – Last year’s golden boot winner, there’s a lot of hope from him again!
  • Alvaro Morata – He has done well in the limited opportunities he got with Real Madrid and Juventus, so he might fare well in leading the line at the premier league.

Current Rivalries to watch out for:


  • Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur
  • Manchester United vs Manchester City
  • Liverpool vs Everton
  • Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur


  • Manchester City vs Manchester United
  • Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur
