The pick of Premier League matches this weekend sees Liverpool welcome Leicester City to Anfield on the evening of Friday 30 December. Both the Reds and the Foxes endured tough times through the pre-World Cup phase of the season, before turning the tide in the weeks before Qatar 2022 started. This clash could be key in building or halting momentum for these clubs.
“The players have had a little bit of time with their families, so it was a great opportunity just to get together and reinforce a lot of our football philosophy,” said Leicester boss Brandan Rodgers. “It’s also important for the players to reconnect again socially so you’re spending a lot of time with each other. That’s been great.
“And also we have quite a few younger players here. It’s good for them to be in this environment, see how the senior players operate. Up until now, we’re getting to the end but it’s been first class for us.”
A busy Saturday opens in the early afternoon with Wolverhampton Wanderers hosting Manchester United and hoping that new manager Julen Lopetegui can guide them to a famous win over the Red Devils.
“I want this moment,” said Lopetegui. “It’s important that [the players] return physically, but also mentality – they have to be here, and to be with a big commitment now with Wolves. Sometimes it’s not easy because I have lived the World Cup and it’s a very intensive time, they have to forget all this and to focus here, and to help us to be better.”
Saturday also features champions Manchester City at home to Everton, league leaders Arsenal away to Brighton and high-flying Newcastle United hosting Leeds United for a potential thriller, while Sunday opens with Aston Villa visiting Tottenham Hotspur, before the round is closed out by a clash between Nottingham Forest and Chelsea at the City Ground.
“We’ve all done it [warm-weather training] with the objective of being ready to play competitively when the Premier League restarts. We hope we’ve done well out of it, but the proof will be in the pudding,” said Forest manager Steve Cooper.
