This weekend, it’s all about the English action. Soccer could not get any better than when a cup is at stake, and the EFL Cup Final is on Sunday between two of England’s biggest and best clubs. Premier League action continues through the weekend, with another matchup between two of England’s giants on Sunday. Take a look at what’s going on this weekend in soccer below.
Saturday, February 24th
Liverpool vs. West Ham United – 10:00 A.M. ET (CNBC)
- Liverpool’s high-powered offense host West Ham in the Premier League this weekend. After a convincing victory in the Champions League last week, a 5-0 win against Porto, Liverpool will look for a similar result on Saturday. However, they’ve been known to slip against clubs near the bottom like West Ham. If the Hammers can put a shift in on defense, they can maybe escape with a point.
Sunday, February 25th
Manchester United vs. Chelsea – 9:05 A.M. ET (NBCSN)
- If it weren’t for the cup final, this would be the matchup of the week. Two clubs in the top 4 of the Premier League square off. Two managers with public feuds on each others behavior, and one of them the former manager of the other club. United will look to put this one away at home to give them a comfortable cushion from those below them. Chelsea faced Barcelona in the middle of the week, and will need to stay sharp even after facing the Spanish giants.
Arsenal vs. Manchester City – 11:30 A.M. ET (ESPN) *Must-Watch Match of the Week*
- It’s the EFL Cup Final! Played at England’s national stadium, Wembley, London’s Arsenal will take on the eventual Premier League Champion Manchester City. Arsenal will be huge underdogs but they were in the same position during the FA Cup Final against Chelsea last season and came out victorious. City is fresh off a shock defeat at League 1 side Wigan Athletic, and it certainly won’t be easier on Sunday. The pressure is on and it should be an incredible watch.
