Manchester City already won FA Community Shield final on 4th of August winning by penalties against Liverpool. The first round of Premier League started for Manchester City very well. They won against strongly changed West Ham United team with 5:0 result. During the first half, City were more careful, as the first match against every opponent could be unexpected. However, Citizens had much more dangerous moments and ball control. Finally, at 25th minute Gabriel Jesus opened the score after great K. Walker pass and run. The second half was totally crashed after Sterling hattrick and 5 scored goals in general, saving the clean sheet. West Ham talented and fast players tried their best, but Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko, Walker, and new signing Rodri stood strong without any big mistakes during the whole game. At home, Manchester City is almost unbeated. Last season they lost only once in 19 games, winning all other 18 matches.
City made a great deal changing Danilo on Joao Cancelo with surcharge, who will be a great addition on the right side. We expect him to change Walker at the end of the next game, as he needs to practice with the main team during important games. Unfortunately, B. Mendy, L. Sane and very likely Fernandinho will miss the next game due to injuries.
Spurs also started the season well, even without several leaders as Dele Ali have a thigh injury and Son Heung-Min red card suspension. After last year, they already learned how to play by rotating the squad and playing almost every match without one of the leaders. The team won the game against Aston Villa even losing 1:0 after the first half. Ndombele scored his debut goal in the second half and Harry Kane scored double to validate the victory. In general, Tottenham were obviously stronger with 70% of possession and 31 goal attempts. The newcomers of the Premier League held strong, but settled in the second part of the match and eventually lost. Tottenham always plays until the end, even in such matches.
During the summer transfer window, Spurs brought Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, loaned Giovani Lo Celso and signed Ryan Sessegnon. Unfortunately, the match against Manchester City will miss D. Alli, J. Foyth, R. Sessegnon and very likely B. Davies due to injuries.
