Exciting Premier League weekend - Brazilians to feature in English showcase
The Premier League action this weekend promises to be a real treat for spectators, with some of English football’s top teams coming up against one another in the last round of action before the international break.
A number of Brazilian players look set to feature prominently in the major European league, with the imports from the South American football factory across the Atlantic Ocean showing no sign of ceasing. There will be some high-profile absentees however, with Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho the main one to flag. The exhilarating attacker is set to sit out Liverpool’s trip to West Ham United, with the former Inter Milan star struggling with injury.
Those betting on a Reds victory with bookmakers or casinos like www.casinosverige.me/nya-casinon will take Coutinho's absence into consideration. However, Roberto Firmino will surely start for the Reds in London, with the Brazil international continuing to prove his worth for the Anfield outfit. The former Hoffenheim star is eclipsed by the profile of Coutinho but is clearly trusted by Jurgen Klopp, with his goals and assists key in Liverpool’s chances of a successful campaign. Arguably the most exciting game of the round is Manchester United’s trip to face Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho returning to face his former employers. While the visitors do not have any Brazilians in their ranks, the Blues look set to call on David Luiz and Willian for the game. Chelsea were humbled 3-0 by Roma in midweek and will look to get back to winning ways against United, but their defence must be better than it was in Rome on Tuesday night. Luiz will play a big role in dictating change, while further up the park Willian may well have to make do with a place on the bench.
One Brazilian in his first season in the Premier League that is making a big impact is Richarlison, with the 20-year-old playing an important role in the Hornets’ strong start to the campaign. Signed from Fluminense over the summer, the Vicarage Road supporters have taken the South American to their hearts, with his skill, passion and ability in the final third making him an instant favourite. Watford can move up as high as sixth place after the weekend’s action and will look to record victory against a hapless Everton side at Goodison Park. While Brazilian players seem to favour moves to Italy’s Serie A or Spain’s La Liga, the number of prominent current or future Selecao stars plying their trade in England appears to be on the rise.
