The English Premier League will resume this weekend. The likes of Man City and Chelsea have been in tremendous form since the commencement of the current English Premier League campaign. Chelsea currently occupy first position on the Premier League table. Let us take a close look at three teams that could lose in the English Premier League this weekend.
Chelsea have won many games in the English Premier League this season. Thomas Tuchel's men have been in sensational form since the start of this season. Chelsea will play against Burnley this weekend. Many people expect Chelsea to beat Burnley on Saturday. This is because Burnley currently occupy eighteenth position on the Premier League table. However, Chelsea could lose the match this weekend. This is mainly because of the absence of players like Romelu Lukaku and N'Golo Kante. Thomas Tuchel may also rest some players against Burnley. Burnley have very fast attackers. These attackers could exploit the absence of N'Golo Kante in Chelsea's midfield department.
2. Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have performed poorly over the past few weeks. They lost by five goals to nil against Liverpool a few weeks ago. Man United could lose to Man City in the Manchester derby this weekend. This is because Manchester United's defence is weak. Man United have conceded in eight league games this season. The absence of Raphael Varane could give Man City's attackers the chance to score some goals against Man United this weekend. Varane is the most respected central defender in the Man United squad. However, he was injured against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.
3. Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace defeated Manchester City in the English Premier League last weekend. However, Crystal Palace players have not really played well in the English Premier League this season. They currently occupy thirteenth position on the English Premier League table. Crystal Palace will play against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend. However, Wolverhampton Wanderers could win the game. This is because Crystal Palace have depended on Wilfred Zaha since the start of this season. Crystal Palace could lose if Wolverhampton Wanderers have the ability to isolate Wilfred Zaha during the match.
