    Six PL players in action

    There are six Premier League players starting in action tonight for both teams.

    Those players are Van Dijk, Ake, Bergwijn, De Bruyne, Castagne and Romelu Lukaku.

    Which side will come out on top?

  • Lloyd Canfield

    Best in the business

    Virgil Van Dijk is elegance personified at the back.

    The streets are saying they haven't seen someone so composed in the back line in history.

    His range of passing is unprecedented for a center-half, not to mention he is a pretty decent defender too.

    The Dutch colossus is an ever present for club and country, and one of the best to ever do it in that position.

    Eden Hazard remontada

    Most of us will remember the Belgian wizard at Chelsea, the dazzling winger with feet quicker than the blink of an eye.

    But since he got his dream move to Real Madrid back in 2019 from the Blues, it hasn't quite worked out how many expected it to.

    Despite winning LaLiga twice, and most recently the Champions League, Eden has not found his feet amid consistent injury struggles and poor form.

    It's not the first time we have seen a dry-spell from the magician, but he has pulled off this trick before at Chelsea, and we back him to be back next season.

    Form is temporary, class is permanent.
