Friday night Premier League football begins officially tonight then with Manchester United v Southampton live from Old Trafford at 8pm. Yes we have had Friday night games in the past, United in fact played one at the start of last season away to Aston Villa. however that was more to do with something happening in Birmingham on the Saturday than TV scheduling, although the game did get shown anyway.
I watch the Man United match last Sunday and they just looked so confident now, their new players have bedded straight in and I’m sure the Mourinho factor has so much to do with that. I can only see a victory tonight for them, with Zlatan maybe even getting two goals. I’m sure Southampton will try and give them a game, but with the Old Trafford crowd behind them I think it’ll be another 3 points for sure for the Red Devils.

Saturday is a feast of football action from across Europe and the World, La Liga starts this weekend as well so Sky Sports have so many games for you to choice from. In particular Saturday tea time with Barcelona kicking off their campaign at home and then you have last seasons top two from the Premier League battling it out. Arsenal and Leicester both lost their openings games so neither will want to lose this one, so lets go for a draw.
Saturday 20th August 2016
- Scottish Premiership 12:15pm St Johnstone v Celtic on BT Sport
- Premier League 12:30pm Stoke City v Man City on Sky Sports
You have all heard before ‘how will so and so manager cope on a rainy night in Stoke on a Tuesday’. Well Pep doesn’t have that issue to start with as he take his new City team to Stoke on a Saturday afternoon in August. It could still be raining mind and Stoke will still be a tricky tie, at best they could get a draw but I cannot see anything other than a City win.
