Chelsea – Manchester City headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

After a scary week which saw the team halt player activity, it looks to be full steam ahead for Manchester City.

The team was forced to postpone Monday’s match against Everton due to concerns that a COVID-19 outbreak spread beyond regular contributors Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus.

Thankfully, both are now healthy and Sunday’s trip to London looks to be a go as the Citizens set on their quest to march up the table from their current eighth-placed status.

On the other side, Chelsea is looking to ring in the new year with a much needed win.

The Blues proved to be beatable against a massively struggling Arsenal, and blew a second half lead to tie Aston Villa in their last two competitions.

Elsewhere, Bundesliga and Serie A action resume and the top teams in both leagues are largely facing off with drop zone opponents.

  1. How utterly pathetic that ESPN is not putting a single Bundesliga game on an actual TV channel, despite having several networks!
    In a season when US players like Reyna and Brooks are doing so well, and more US players are playing in Germany than ever, to take such a massive step backward in television coverage and visibility of the sport is absolutely inexcusable.
    ESPN deserves to be held accountable by having the rights taken away from it and given to another network for failing to broadcast any games. They should never have been given a non-broadcast contract in the first place.
    Putting the Bundesliga on the same feeble footing as leagues in India or Australia, essentially assuming that hardly anyone wants to watch the games on TV, is a slap in the face to the German league as well as to American soccer viewers.
