EPL Week 6 review: United vs. Leicester, Arsenal vs. Chelsea

United Kingdom

English Premier League (PL) champions, Leicester City, travel to Manchester United on Saturday in the early kick off fixture on match week 6 of the league.

Leicester City boss, Claudio Ranieri, has been speaking ahead of the game and says his feud with United counterpart Jose Mourinho has long been buried.

Jose Mourinho had previously taunted Ranieri for his lack of silverware, before the Foxes triumphed to PL success last season while Jose Mourinho was sacked from Chelsea.

“Every manager has a lot of jobs to do, it’s normal. He (Mourinho) is a great manager, a fantastic person, and I wish him all the best, not on Saturday but after Saturday of course.”

Mourinho’s side have suffered back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Watford in the league and will be hoping for a respite.

Leicester have won one out of their last 18 league trips to Old Trafford.

In the other games, league leaders Manchester City will face Swansea City for the second time in a week. Pep Guardiola has won his first five Premier League matches – the only manager to win more was Carlo Ancelotti, who won his first six as manager of Chelsea in 2009.

Arsenal host Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday evening. It comes as Arsene Wenger marks 20 years in charge of the Gunners. Wenger was unveiled as Arsenal boss on September 22, 1996.

“We talked about that (discipline) because in the last two games we played against Chelsea with ten men so, of course, for the result tomorrow it will be important how we play football but as well the way we behave because discipline and results are strongly linked. The regret from the last two games is that we couldn’t play with 11 against 11.”

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp wants his players to show “anger” and guard against complacency when they entertain promoted Hull City on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost only one of their last 14 PL matches at Anfield.
