English Premier League headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

After a year of staving off relegation, Everton fans probably wanted to see a little better preseason in Frank Lampard’s second act in charge of the Toffees. Of course, friendlies don’t matter in the end, but they can be damning in hindsight. A stunning 4-0 loss to Minnesota United in July does not exactly inspire confidence, and Everton gets its feet put to the fire in Week 1 of Premier League action by hosting Chelsea on what’s likely to be the last opening day at Goodison Park. Arsenal is another team looking to reward its fanbase for riding out the tough times and opens up the new Premier League season visiting Crystal Palace. A fresh crop of newcomers headlined by Gabriel Jesus will look to get the Gunners back into the Champions League picture, but former club-legend-turned-Palace-manager Patrick Vieira managed to earn points in both of last year’s matches, making Friday’s contest anything but a guarantee for Arsenal. The Bundesliga also returns to action in Germany, and Bayern Munich’s new setup will be the hottest topic until proven convincing. Even with the departure of Robert Lewandowski, Bayern figures to continue to reign superior, but the rest of the German field will be hoping for a chance the giants will fall or at least stumble to make the league a fair fight. Julian Nagelsmann’s squad faces Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday in their season opener.
