Arsenal fans, Jurgen Klopp’s excuses, goals of the season and more things we can’t wait to see in the Premier League

Posted on


Liverpool and Man City’s Premier League title battle, a Peep Show prophecy about Theo Walcott coming true and Virgil van Dijk – these were some of the best things about last season, so what’s to look forward to this campaign?

1. Arsenal fans’ inevitable meltdown

The club and its fans have become a bit of a laughing stock in recent years. Goals, flair and Henry have now been replaced by memes, selfies and Mustafi. At least your kit is decent, eh Gooners?


2. Luka Milivojevic being the top scoring Fantasy player thanks to VAR and penalties

The Crystal Palace man, who scored 10 penalties last season, could benefit from the rule changes involving handball. From the new season, handball will be given any time the ball comes into contact with a player’s arm when it is extended beyond a ‘natural silhouette’ to make themselves ‘unnaturally bigger’. Translation: Get him in your Dream Team and watch the points stack up.

3. Man United fan ‘protests’ calling for the Glazers to leave after paying the Old Trafford entry fee

It also wouldn’t be a Premier League season without them blaming everything on Ed Woodward either.

4. Paul Pogba staying, kissing the Man United badge, declaring his love for the fans, then leaving in January

His comments about wanting a new challenge were misinterpreted. He loves Old Trafford really…

5. Seeing what formal event Andy Carroll will turn up to in a tracksuit

He’s done a wedding, so could it be a Christening?

6. Another Andros Townsend screamer

Yes please. It was a tragedy it didn’t win Goal of the Season.

7. The excuse Jurgen Klopp will use when Liverpool lose to Burnley

We’ve had weather – on multiple occasions – but he has not blamed the crisis in the Gulf as far as talkSPORT is aware.

8. Mike Dean’s banter

9. Hector Bellerin’s outfits

His unique fashion sense isn’t to everyone’s taste, but he doesn’t care what you or anyone else thinks.

10. Charlie Austin’s next Parklife-inspired rant

The Southampton striker was raging when a goal against Watford was disallowed in November. Then this happened.

11. Jack Grealish’s low socks

The Aston Villa midfielder, like Bellerin, also has his own style. Whereas the Arsenal man’s is borrowed from the catwalk, though, his is taken from 1970s football – a wonderful throwback.

One year his socks shrunk in the wash and he played really well, so it became a superstition for the Villa ace

12. To see which player Pep Guardiola has a tense exchange with in full view of the cameras

We’re unsure what the Spanish for ‘getting in their grill’ is, but the Man City manager has a tendency to do this to his players and opponents – just ask Nathan Redmond, Josh Kimmich and Raheem Sterling.

13. Mark Saggers to lose his s**t again on talkSPORT
