Re: Premier League 2019/20 Discussion Thread
I was surprised by the 4-0 scoreline in the Man Utd and Chelsea game, I didn't see that coming at all especially after I called out United's lack of goals with Lukaku's recent departure!
Granted they did play a poor Chelsea side and with it being Lampard's first Premier League game there was a defintite lack of experience there for all to see. Also after losing Hazard and being given a transfer ban it was always going to be tough for them regardless of the manager that was given the job. I do hope things improve for Lampard because I like him, he seems like a decent bloke but I fear he may be out of his depth eventhough this one game should not be a measure of the season to come.
Manchester United on the other hand with the 3 points and a clean sheet is a great result but it definitely flattered them. Maguire and Bissaka played well but it's far too early to judge them and this team. I just can't see this squad challenging for the Premier League and winning any of the cups will not be easy either. Ole is another one out of his depth and again like Lampard, I hope he does well but it's not going to be an easy ride.
The true test will be the likes of City, Liverpool, Tottenham and even Arsenal. Those first three are sure things to be in the top four this year but I have good feelings regarding Arsenal this season as well, I think they're going to be a handful and finish very near the top of the table.
