Here’s the first look at how the Premier League’s biggest teams will break down on Friday night.
The top three teams will all be playing each other in a game at Anfield, and that’s the way the teams are set to go.
This is not the only time we’re looking at the Premier Leagues most likely teams to play, and there will be many who will be looking at this fixture as a reminder of what the future could hold for the league.
The Premier League season kicks off on Wednesday, and it’s likely that we’ll see many more of the teams we know from the previous campaigns break up.
Here’s a look at the teams most likely to be involved in a fight for survival.
The biggest break-up could be the Gunners, who have been on the up in the Premier league for the past three seasons.
After losing their place in the top four last season, they are expected to take the opportunity to get back in the hunt for a Champions League spot.
They are expected by many to be in the title race, and their goalkeeping duo of David Ospina and Joe Hart is a proven Premier League performer.
The two Manchester clubs that are in the same position of the last five seasons will also be in contention for the top spot this season.
Both Liverpool and Arsenal have also been in the relegation zone the past few seasons, but there is a strong chance that they will be back in contention this time around.
The rest of the top five have been playing each another since 2013, but Arsenal have been trying to find their feet under new boss Arsene Wenger.
The Frenchman is a fan favourite in London, and he has brought in some of the best young players from around the world, like Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
The Gunners have a strong squad, with three world-class players in Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Özil and Wojciech Szczesny.
The biggest question mark on Arsenal’s list is their defence, with Aaron Ramsey having struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at the Emirates.
If Arsenal can keep their current form, they should be able to pull off a great upset in this game, and this could be one of the great ties of the season.
The next tie is against Tottenham, who are in a similar position as Arsenal.
The Red Devils are hoping to return to the top of the table, and they have a solid squad of world-beaters in Gareth Bale, Dele Alli and Harry Kane.
The pair of Manchester clubs will both be looking to get their legs under them after the disappointing 2015/16 season, and will be desperate to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.
They are in an even stronger position than Arsenal is, with their star player, Dele Nowatchenko, coming off the bench.
It is a big gamble for Tottenham, and the chances of success are slim to none, but they are not going to lose their head coach Mauricio Pochettino and his players, and are likely to put in a decent performance.
There are also many other big teams that could be involved.
Chelsea have won every single Premier League game in the past five seasons, with no team winning more than four in a row.
Their top scorer this season is Diego Costa, who has become a force of nature in the league with his goal tally.
Ancelotti’s men will be aiming to keep the top three spot for the first time in their history, and look to bounce back from a dreadful 2015/2016 campaign.
They will look to build on that success with the Europa League campaign, with the side having won it in each of the past four years.
