If you've been keeping up with the football news this week, you'll know it's been all change at one Premier League club.


But this article isn't about Jose Mourinho and Tottenham - instead, it's about what the boffins here at 90min think they know about European football.


So, without further ado, here is the first edition of '90min Editors: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!'


Leganes vs Barcelona

Saturday 23/11 - 12:00

Ernesto Valverde, Manager of Barcelona

By ​Andy Headspeath


There has been much talk of ​Barcelona's inconsistency, but Leganes have been abysmal so far in 2019/20.


Madrid's other club sit bottom of La Liga with one win from their opening 13 games, while former Mexico boss Javier Aguirre has been brought in to change their fortunes. Frankly, despite Barça's obvious shortcomings, with everyone bar the first-choice full backs available, anything other than a win at the Butarque will be seen as embarrassing. 


That said, Leganes did pull off a 2-1 win in this fixture last season...

West Ham vs Tottenham

Saturday 23/11 - 12:30

Jose Mourinho

By ​Sean Walsh 


One of the most obvious prospects in this weekend's fixtures is West Ham falling victim to the new manager bounce, as Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur make the short trip to London Stadium.


The new Spurs boss insisted in his first press conference that 'one of my principles that I do not like to lose', and with West Ham's poor form going under the radar because of the attention surrounding their rivals, it feels like Mourinho will get what he wants immediately.


Tottenham will almost certainly drop a little deeper to keep out West Ham, and their stronger attack means they should be able to claim their first away win in the Premier League since January.

Atalanta vs Juventus 

Saturday 23/11 - 14:00

Cristiano Ronaldo

By ​Jack Gallagher 


I'm backing Atalanta to upset the apple cart and beat Juventus this weekend for a few simple reasons:


Juventus haven't played particularly well recently.

- Atalanta have played particularly well against Juventus in recent seasons.

- Duvan Zapata has the beating of Leonardo Bonucci.

​Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out, and that's a psychological boost right there.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool 

Saturday 23/11 - 15:00

Fabinho

By ​Toby Cudworth


It’s been a long two weeks without Premier League football but that shouldn’t be a problem for Liverpool when they travel to goal-shy Crystal Palace.


The Reds are flying, already opening an eight point lead over Leicester and Chelsea at the top of the table, nine ahead of Manchester City. The worry for the chasing pack is that Klopp’s boys haven’t really been anywhere near their free-flowing best, yet they’re still running away with things.


A trip to an always noisy Selhurst Park is never easy, but Palace have been lacklustre in attack this season - Wilfried Zaha struggling in particular. ​Liverpool have won on their last four visits to south London and that should become five with another comprehensive win.

Milan vs Napoli

Saturday 23 - 17:00

FBL-ITA-SERIEA-JUVENTUS-AC MILAN

By ​Jude Summerfield


I'm not entirely convinced this is going to be healthy viewing for either set of fans.


Milan remain rooted in transition mode - as they have been for the last ten years, it would seem - ahead of their clash with Napoli, who are in pretty shocking shape by their pretty high standards.


Expect this to be gritty viewing if you do fancy some Serie A instead of Manchester City-Chelsea, and I can see Napoli edging ahead early on before a late Milan equaliser - probably a goal scrambled in by Krzysztof Piątek or some other lump of lard.

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Saturday 23 - 17:30

Pep Guardiola

By ​Krishan Davis


While Chelsea have been mightily impressive in the league following a stuttering start, Manchester City pose their first big test since their winning streak began in defeat to Liverpool. But a trip to the Etihad feels a bridge too far. With the Blues' emphasis firmly on attack, it's difficult to imagine Frank Lampard's men shutting out a resurgent City side and making it seven wins on the bounce.


They may lose, but there will be no repeat of last season's 6-0 thrashing; instead they will go down fighting - just as they did against the Reds. Lampard will just hope their confidence isn't rocked.

Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad

Saturday 23 - 20:00

Federico Valverde

By ​Chris Deeley


Positives:


  • Crisis Club ​Real Madrid have gone five games without conceding a goal, and have scored 16 of their own in that time. 
  • Karim Benzema is on fire, with five goals and three assists in the last month. 


Negatives: 


  • Those five games have come against bottom side Leganes (5-0 win), away at 15th-placed Eibar (4-0 win), two against under-performing Galatasaray (1-0 win away, 6-0 win at home) and at home against relegation-battling Real Betis (0-0 draw). Real Sociedad are actually good. 
  • A win for Real would put them above the Madrid side. 


Real will still win though. Because they're at home, where they haven't lost this season.

Sheffield United vs Manchester United

Sunday 24 - 16:30

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

By Scott Saunders


*Scott dictates to Jude in 90min Towers*


Scott mused: Sheffield United have been very impressive since the start of the Premier League season.


​Manchester United have not been very impressive since the start of the Premier League season. 


This means Sheffield United will win the game. It'll be exactly like Newcastle vs Manchester United from several weeks ago. And the scoreline will be the same, because Manchester United are not very good.
