  5. The old saying goes that form is temporary but class is permanent and that certainly appears to be the case with last season's Punters Lounge Fantasy Football League champion @Team Sagga storming back to the top of the table this season after his side wracked up an 108 point tally which also saw him earn the Manager of the Week award. The performances of Erling Haaland as his captain, James Maddison, and Jarrod Bowen played a key role in his team's total this week which was even more impressive considering Aleksandar Mitrovic didn't even pick up any points! A special mention should go to Stewart Hart and his Harty Hammers team (103 points) and Michael Parkin and his Parks Allstars team (105 points) who both also breached the stunning 100 points mark. Both of those teams also managed that mammoth points haul with just 10 players as Mitrovic failed to notch up even a single point. It's a season-low score of 18 points for the bottom score this week which was scraped together by Nev Dexter and his A2Z Allstarz team. Danny Welbeck, of all players, was the only one of his players that scored more than 2 points for him this week with the likes of Ederson, Joao Cancelo, William Saliba, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Kai Havertz all failing to do the business. It's a funny old game! To end this week's update, I must offer a quick congratulations to Greg Nash who was confirmed as September's Manager of the Month for his exploits as Tokyo Rovers gaffer!

  7. Bloody Championship mate! I swear we're going to reach a stage soon (and Preston have trialled it already!) where every game ends 0-0 because there is so little separating the teams at this level. I'm delighted Cardiff got the win last night but even though we deserved the win we still led a charmed life whilst almost being punished for our continued lack of clinical edge in the final third.
  8. Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen The second and final Champions League preview for this round of group stage will see Premier League reigning champions Manchester City aim to move to the brink of qualification for the last 16 against Danish Superliga team FC Copenhagen in an 8pm BST start at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening. It is still all to play for in Group G but things could be a lot clearer after this 90 minutes. Manchester City have picked up two wins from their opening two group stage games in the Champions League so far with a resounding 4-0 win away to Sevilla and then a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Borussia Dortmund. The stand out player has undoubtedly been Erling Haaland who continues to impress for the Citizens. The Norwegian has now scored 17 goals in all competitions this season for City on the weekend with another hat-trick. His winner against Dortmund last week also saw him reach 26 Champions League goals in a record low 21 Champions League matches. That means he's surpassed the likes of legendary strikers such as Filippo Inzaghi (30 matches), Ruud Van Nistelrooy (30 matches), Mario Gomez (39 matches) and Karim Benzema (41 matches) to reach 25 goals in the competition. Things could still improve though with City keeping clean sheets in just 2 of their 5 home matches across all competitions and they did concede 3 goals in their 6-3 Manchester derby win over Manchester United on the weekend. Maybe I am being picky though! FC Copenhagen will be coming into this game with 34-year old head coach Jacob Neestrup. The young gaffer replaced the sacked Jess Thorup last month and faces a mountainous task if he wants to pull off one of the biggest shock results in Champions League history here. The Lions are struggling on the domestic front with the team down in 6th place but they have given themselves hope in the Champions League. A disappointing 3-0 loss away to Borussia Dortmund was followed up by a dogged 0-0 draw away to Sevilla. That result means they are not bottom of this group and remain in touch with the qualification places for the last 16 for the time being. It is 3 games in this competition without scoring though and they have failed to win any of their last 5 away games in all competitions. It's not hard to see which way this game is likely to go. Manchester City are the overwhelming favourites and rightly so. FC Copenhagen were the underdogs as it was but their recent managerial disruptions may well be for the best in the long term but periods of transition can be ruthlessly picked apart at the top table of European football. I can see a heavy win for City here as Pep Guardiola looks to book their place in the last 16 as soon as possible. FC Copenhagen will simply be looking to keep the score down.

  9. Chelsea vs AC Milan The Champions League action goes on into Wednesday night with the first preview I'm doing covering the game between Premier League side Chelsea and Italian Serie A club AC Milan in an 8pm BST kick-off from Stamford Bridge. These two clubs have enjoyed a lot of success over recent years in this competition but both must dig deep to get out of Group E after inconsistent starts. Chelsea took another step into the new Graham Potter era with a narrow 2-1 win away to Crystal Palace on the weekend but the team needed a 90th minute winner from Conor Gallagher to seal the 3 points. It was a victory that followed the 1-1 draw at home to RB Salzburg in this competition last week. The Blues currently sit bottom of this group but a win here would shoot them up the table into the top two spots. Defensive frailties still plague Chelsea with the team failing to keep a clean sheets in their last 8 matches. The continued absence of keeper Edouard Mendy isn't helping that situation. One anytime scorer shout is striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The former Arsenal and Barcelona front man started his professional career with AC Milan and after opening his account for his new club Chelsea on the weekend it would be quite poetic for him to score here. AC Milan remain one of the biggest clubs in world football and their Serie A title win last season showed they are back to their best. Head coach Stefano Pioli has witnessed his team take 4 points from their opening two group games so far with a 1-1 draw away to RB Salzburg followed up by a convincing 3-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb. The team is doing OK on the domestic front too in 5th place in the top division of Italian football having lost just 1 of their opening 8 league games. AC Milan's matches this season have been packed with action and goals with both teams scoring in 8 of their competitive games this season. I Rossoneri have only won 1 of their last 6 away matches in European competition so they will come into this game knowing they need to break that hoodoo. Another cheeky anytime scorer suggestion is also former Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud who will face his former club here. In years gone by, this game wouldn't have been a surprising semi-final or even final in this competition and even though the teams have had their less successful years to deal with they remain two big teams in this competition. A lot of pressure is on Chelsea here though who could be 5 points adrift of qualification with 3 games to play if they lose. AC Milan know a win will put them on the brink of qualifying for the last 16. I'm still not sure how long it will take for Chelsea to reach their best under Potter. I certainly think AC Milan could be worth backing to get at least a draw here in spite of their away day woes in Europe over recent seasons simply because Chelsea remain a transitional work-in-progress.

  10. Liverpool vs Rangers The second Champions League group stage game I'm going to preview from the Tuesday night matches is the 8pm BST Group A clash between Premier League club Liverpool and Scottish Premiership side Rangers at Anfield. It's a proper Battle of Britain as these two teams look to give their qualification hopes for the last 16 a boost by picking up a win in what is certain to be a highly-charged atmosphere. Liverpool head into this game needing a win to silence the doomsayers that are already claiming Jurgen Klopp is suffering from his infamous "7th season syndrome" which he previously experienced at Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund. I mean, the Reds are still doing OK with the club in 9th place in the Premier League and sitting 2nd in their Champions League group. However, the team have now only won 2 of their 7 league games this season and have already suffered a humbling 4-1 loss away to Napoli in this competition but it was followed by a pleasing 2-1 win at home to Ajax. Liverpool have also won 13 of their last 15 home matches in this competition. You can also expect this to be an entertaining game because both teams have scored in 7 of their 9 competitive matches played this season. Rangers aren't the European giants they once were but Giovanni van Bronckhorst has done a sterling job getting back to the top table of European football. The Gers had to navigate their way past Belgian First Division A club Union Saint-Gilloise and Dutch Eredivisie side PSV in the qualifying rounds. Unfortunately, the Glaswegians have suffered back-to-back losses in this group so far with a 4-0 defeat away to Ajax followed up by a 3-0 defeat at home to Napoli. The team is currently in 2nd place on the domestic front and just 2 points behind league leaders and rivals Celtic. However, Rangers did suffer a 4-0 humiliation away to Celtic back in September. So it's hard to really judge van Bronckhorst's team against the elite sides given that on the few occasions they've played that level of team they've been battered. My gut instinct tells me this could be a difficult night for Rangers. For all the problems Liverpool are suffering this season they remain a dangerous side on the global stage and that is especially the case at Anfield. The England versus Scotland sub-plot might put a little bit more effort and passion behind Rangers but they've struggled to compete at this level so far and I can see that continuing here. Six of the last seven matches played at Anfield have seen both teams score but I'm not sure I can even see Rangers doing that.
