The return of the English Premier League (EPL) this weekend is expected to take Twitter by storm with content, conversation and debates.
The Premier League is back and excitement among football supporters across Ghana is reaching fever pitch.

Arguably the most competitive league in the world, the prospect of a new season brings a renewed sense of joy, hope and even despair for football fans all over the world as the drama unfolds on and off the pitch over the next nine months. Will Jack Grealish live up to his price tag? Will Harry Kane be stuck at Spurs forever more? Can Raphael Varane steer Manchester United to a long awaited premier league title?
Can Liverpool keep up the pace and continue to challenge for the title without Salah, Mane, Keita & Matip when the African Cup of Nations kicks off in January?

So many questions and so many unknowns. However, football fans are never shy of an opinion, a prediction or engaging with some footy gossip and transfer speculation and there is no better place to be and experience it all than on Twitter. Before, during and after each big match, Twitter is What’s Happening!? and will feature premium content, real-time reactions and the best conversation as Ghanaian football fans cheer on the return of their favourite players and teams from the Premier League.
This is how it felt for Chelsea fans inside the Windsor Stadium!!
