As the 2011-12 season stands behind a curtain, glossed in its share of club rivalry, back-lit and waiting to take center stage, I'd be inclined to mention that any match against Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United, for various reasons, will prove insuperable. Arguable yes, but seemingly obvious.
This past season, Liverpool have been hit with a relegation threat and two poor managers until change of ownership and the adept King Kenny came along (unfortunately a little late) and two mint strikers. Fans will be staid to their sets to witness the king bring the Reds back up to the top four.
Tottenham could not possibly be satisfied finishing on the cusp of Champions League placement after dipping a toe in top-four waters granting them rite of passage to play against Real Madrid this past season. With that in mind they'll be certain to score a fast comeback.
Arsenal and Chelsea enter the scene with their fair share of issues. Wenger's inability to bring silverware home has been weighed as the Gunners exponential failings sealed their fate once again. Will they continue to drop?
With a new Blues manager hanging in the balance, many wonder if Torres will explode on the scoring tear expected of him.
And then, of course, who can forget Manchester United? Any non-United fan would love to see any team knock them off their pedestal once and for all.
Take a glimpse at the ten games we cannot wait to see come August.
