arsenal vs liverpool . . .

not much separates these teams. liverpool have been bolder in the transfer market but arsenal have home advantage. arsenal have issues at the center back position with their 3 senior center backs out which means a young pairing of holding and chambers may be used. they also have issues up top with welbeck hurt, giroud not match fit and walcott and sanchez mainly play out wide but may have to shift to striker for this one. liverpool have recruited well and looked impressive with a 4-0 win on barca in preseason but then looked terrible in a 4-0 loss to mainz. i think klopps high pressing will cause issues for arsenal and liverpool have a much better squad right now to deal with any injuries. liverpool may struggle with a natural left back in this premier league opener but klopp will find a way and i think he will sneak this one here. 2-1 liverpool.
bournemouth vs man utd . . .

bournemouth surprised many last year by staying up and playing some good soccer along the way. eddie howe is a bright young talented manager and jose mourinho has said this will be a tough first test for his new side. bournemouth are stable and you know what you are going to get. they haven’t made any drastic changes (didn’t really need too) but have made some nice signings to bolster the squad. record new signing pogba is suspended for man utd and so is smalling which leaves a slight gap in the spine of the man utd team but blind and schneiderlin will probably plug in those holes. this was the last game of the season a few months back and man utd came out on top with a 3-1 win. wilson will need to be back to top form to grab a goal vs man utd and bournemouth will need to find ways to stop a stacked attacking team with the likes of rooney, ibra, rashford, martial and mkhitaryan. lets see if they click though. man utd to win 1-0.
