September’s football fixtures see the season heating up. For some teams that means beginning to hit their stride, jelling together to make an unstoppable juggernaught. For others, the path isn’t so rosy.
Our home team, Shrewsbury Town aren’t having much luck so far this season being six games in and only holding onto three points. That puts them at position 23 of 24 but it’s early days in the league. The biggest challenge this month will be when Shrewsbury Town face off against joint table leaders Portsmouth on Saturday 8th September. Luckily there are some easier games to be had later in the month.
Liverpool have had a cracking run at the start of the season, which puts them at joint first and at the top of the league on goal difference. That lead will be harder to hold as they go up against Leicester City. The Foxes have had a good run too. Then Liverpool face Tottenham who also have three wins out of three in the Premier League. Later in the month they face Southampton, and crucially Chelsea at the end of the month.
Wolves face a league sandwich in September after they have what looks like an easy match against a flailing Burnley. Man U, currently one point up against Wolves and Southampton (one point below) are all equally matched, so it’s anyones game at this moment.
But what we’re all interested about is if England can keep up their appearances after coming fourth in the UEFA World Cup. The first match (of two in three days) is the England debut at the Uefa Nations League. The Three Lions take on Spain at Wembley Stadium at 20:45 on Sat 8th Sept 2018. On Tues 11th Sept 2018 England play a friendly against Switzerland at Leicester’s King Power stadium. With those two games so close, it will be interesting at least to see how Gareth Southgate fields his team.
