Just some quick words as the EPL season opens.
As an avid Chelsea FC supporter, this is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Chelsea opened the season with a road win at Goodison Park vs host Everton, handing the Toffees their first season opener loss in a decade. It was also the first road win at Everton for the Blues in 5 years. Chelsea struggled offensively, but the arrival of Sterling seemed worthy of praise. He was a bright spot in the final third of the pitch. Work to be done at Stanford Bridge next Sunday vs the Hotspurs, but I'll take the 1-nil victory and 3 pts today.
Here are some of the fixtures through Saturday:
Man City, and new star Haaland, begin their title defense tomorrow on the road at West Ham. Manchester City, alongside Liverpool, Tottenham, and Chelsea lead the odds for this year's title race/Champions League positions. While AFC Bournemouth is the safest bet to lead relegation at the bottom of the table.
Looking forward to another amazing season!
