Sheffield United Robbed, David Luiz Does David Luiz Things as Premier League Returns

Written By High Press 10 on June 17, 2020

After 100 days of no games, the Premier League returned today.

In many ways, it was like nothing changed at all since March. David Luiz did stupid David Luiz things and basically handed Manchester City a win.

Sheffield United was utterly robbed of a win in a “wait, isn’t this why we have VAR?” moment.

Here’s a quick recap.

Manchester City rolled Arsenal

City won 3-0. Mikel Arteta doing the whole “apprentice schools the master” thing never happened.

However, not all Arteta’s fault! He could’ve had 18 on the pitch and it wouldn’t matter so long as one of those was David Luiz.

And it was like David Luiz had money on City.

Luiz was responsible for an error leading to Raheem Sterling’s opener. He then earned a bone-headed red card leading to a Kevin de Bruyne penalty conversion.

Scary moment at the end as Ederson collided with Eric Garcia, knocking him out and stopping the game for 10 minutes. 🧠🙏 to Garcia.

Villa get an undeserved but critical point

Really, Aston Villa were the better squad and deserved a point or three in this snoozer. They had 1.01 xG to The Blades’ 0.24.

But the reality is Sheffield United scored a goal, it inexplicably wasn’t counted, and those 2 points may keep them out of Europa League play.

Nothing else to say about this one. Not the best showcase match to bring the action back.
