The 10 sentence Premier League Preview: Ozil to prove quality trumps quantity

Mesut Ozil 3

10 matches, 10 sentences; it really is that simple.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace:

It is time to unleash Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa – or face the ire of the fans – in a match that United should win comfortably.

Aston Villa v Newcastle United:

Aston Villa will heap more despair on a Magpies’ fan-base that deserves considerably better.

Fulham v West Bromwich Albion:

A narrow home win beckons…and the death-spot on Match of the Day.

Hull City v Cardiff City:

These are the matches that will define the two sides’ seasons; an early must-win game for two clubs who will know the importance of every last point, and surely draw as a result.

Stoke City v Manchester City:

Rarely will a manager be more desperate to get one over his former side, and rarely will one be more disappointed when he doesn’t.

Sunderland v Arsenal:

Mesut Ozil will show Paolo Di Canio that when it comes to summer signings, quality trumps quantity.

Tottenham Hotspur v Norwich City:

The beginning of a new era for Spurs, and with probable appearances for Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, another three points look likely.

Everton v Chelsea:

Everton must start scoring, and without Romelu Lukaku, it is up to their misfiring forwards to lead the way, although a hard-fought draw looks the most likely outcome.

Southampton v West Ham United:

The Saints should continue their good start to the season against a depleted Hammers side, with Rickie Lambert generating a few more headlines.

Swansea City v Liverpool:

1-0 to Liverpool.
