Premier League Football in London – March 2017

premleagjan17

March sees only a few Premier League matches due to the FA Cup fixtures and the International break. However there is still a number of interesting fixtures involving London clubs.

Chelsea have emerged as real title contenders with Conte’s men impressing with their teamwork and commitment, they are building up a gap against the rest and it seems even a rejuvenated West Ham will not stop Chelsea’s progress.

Tottenham are showing some of their form from last year and Harry Kane has been on fire in front of goal, they will be looking for maximum points from matches against Everton and Southampton to keep the pressure on the top teams.

West Ham United have been improving, but the injury worries around Andy Carroll will cause concern. Games against Chelsea and struggling Champions Leicester City will test the Hammer’s  resolve. 

Crystal Palace have a crucial match with fellow strugglers Watford who start the month with a difficult game against Southampton.

England v Lithuania at Wembley Stadium – 26th March 2017

engscot

England take on Lithuania in their first home fixture of 2017 as the Three Lions continue their campaign to reach the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Whilst England are unbeaten and sit on top of the qualifying table, they have failed to impress since Gareth Southgate took over the job as England manager. He will hope to start 2017 with a convincing win over a so far disappointing Lithuania.

With doubts about the form of a number of top England players, it could mean a new set of players are used to help England qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

UEFA Champions League : Arsenal V Bayern Munich – 7th March 2017

arsenal_v_bayernmunich

After Arsenal’s disaster in the Allianz Arena when the Gunners were beaten 5-1 by German champions Bayern Munich, it will be probably just pride that will be at stake in the second leg of the Champions League tie.

It is almost certain that Arsenal will now almost certainly go out in the first knockout round for a seventh straight season.

That is not say there is not a lot at stake, the pressure is building on manager Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal hierarchy to prove that they are contenders for the top trophies and not just content to qualify for the later stages.

With Bayern likely to field a weakened team, the Gunners will be looking to regain some pride after the fierce criticism they have had since the first leg.

Six Nations Rugby Union : England v Scotland – 11th March 2017

engvscot

The start of the Six Nations has been full of surprises with Scotland beating Ireland and then losing narrowly to France, whilst England have found a way to grab victory from the jaws of defeat with last gasp wins against France and Wales.

It is against this background that it would be difficult what to predict the outcome of the Calcutta match at Twickenham on the 11th March 2017.

Can the resurgent Scots deny England another grand slam, or will England continue with their winning streak ?

Premier League Football in London – February 2017

 premleagjan17

The second month of Premier League football in 2017 sees a number of interesting fixtures including some crucial London derbies.

Arsenal have had a steady start to the season but slipped up recently, their title winning credentials will be severely test by a trip to Chelsea.  Another fixture against Hull City will offer an easier test but the Gunners need to keep up the pressure on the teams at the top. 

Chelsea have emerged as real title contenders with Conte’s men impressing with their teamwork and commitment, matches against Arsenal and Swansea seem unlikely to stop the Chelsea’s progress.

Tottenham are showing some of their form from last year and will be looking for maximum points from matches against Middlesbrough and Stoke City.

West Ham’s poor start to the season has been a surprise, however December and January has bought improved displays and Andy Carroll has regained his scoring touch. Games against Man City, West Brom and Watford will test the Hammer’s new resolve. 

Watford and Crystal Palace have shown signs that they may struggle this year, Palace in particular have lost direction, matches against Sunderland and Middlesbrough are crucial for survival. Watford have been very inconsistent and need points against Burnley and West Ham United.

RBS 6 Nations : England v Italy at Twickenham – 26th February 2017

fraeng800

Eddie Jones may have led England to the Grand Slam last year as part of an unbeaten 12 months following the 2015 World Cup. However he feels that complacency may be their biggest challenge entering the 2017 RBS 6 Nations tournament.

Jones’ side welcome Italy to Twickenham on the 26th February and if they are complacent a resurgent Italy may be capable of a shock. Despite the Italians finishing winless and bottom of the Six Nations table last year, a win against South Africa in the Autumn Internationals provided evidence that they can beat anyone on their day.

Former Harlequins boss Conor O’Shea has taken charge of the Italian squad and there is a degree of optimism when the side kick off their Championship home games against Wales and Ireland.

Whilst most pundits will not see anything but an easy England win, Italy will closely watched to see if they can repeat their performance against South Africa.
