Another exciting weekend of Premier League action awaits with some big games on Saturday and Sunday. Here are our predictions for the latest games.
Queens Park Rangers v Stoke City
Both of these sides go into the game off the back of defeats although QPR’s was far worse. That could make for a tense game, which sees both teams reluctant to give much away.
Aston Villa v Arsenal
The momentum is with the home side after a superb win at Liverpool last weekend. Arsenal are looking to react to a defeat at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. Villa have the best defensive record in the Premier League this season.
Burnley v Sunderland
Both sides go into the match after draws and each will be desperate for three points to help them up the table. The main concern for Burnley is that they’ve scored just one goal this season, which came in their opening game against Chelsea.
Newcastle United v Hull City
Newcastle can help take some of the pressure away from Alan Pardew with a good performance in this game. However, the omens aren’t good as the side lost 4-0 and sit bottom of the table.
Swansea City v Southampton
Swansea battled well at Chelsea but fell to defeat in their first game of the season while the Saints trolled to that 4-0 win against Newcastle. This is a chance to see two very exciting attacks going up against each other.
West Ham United v Liverpool
West Ham battled for a point at Hull which will give them confidence and they have had slightly more time to rest than their opponents. West Ham have scored the same number of goals as Liverpool this season which means the difference could fall with each team’s defence.
Leicester City v Manchester United
Leicester played well to secure a 1-0 win at Stoke last weekend but they could struggle against a resurgent Manchester United attack. If United defend well, they will create chances and have several players who can hurt the Foxes.
Tottenham Hotspur v West Bromwich Albion
Spurs will be looking to end the jink that plagued their last game following a Europa League match and they should be confident of a solid win against one of four teams at the foot of the table on two points in West Brom.
Everton v Crystal Palace
The Toffees were arguably the best English side in Europe during mid-week and they are flying heading into the match against Neil Warnock’s side who will be fresher as they’ve had more time to rest.
Manchester City v Chelsea
The fixtures list has saved the best for last. The Premier League’s best attack, by some distance, heads to the home of the current champions. City played well against Arsenal last weekend but the Blues have Jose Mourinho, one of the best tacticians in European football.
