England Premier League — 29 September 2012

The Premier League kicks-off this weekend with Arsenal hosting Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

The visitors head into this clash leading the fledgling table, but the Gunners have been superb at the back this season.

Arsene Wenger’s side have conceded just two goals in their five Premier League games so far. Chelsea could have trouble breaching that solid Gunners backline.

Elsewhere, Everton host Southampton looking to continue their good Premier League form so far. The Toffees currently sit third in the top flight table after making an impressive start to their campaign.

The visitors will be looking to build on their first league victory of the season against Aston Villa last weekend with a good result on Merseyside.

Champions Manchester City travels to Fulham’s Craven Cottage, looking to get back to winning ways after drawing their last Premier League game with Arsenal last weekend. However, Fulham will be looking for new signing Dimitar Berbatov to continue his fine form since joining from Manchester United.

Reading plays Newcastle at the Madejski Stadium, looking for their first league victory of the season. The Royals will be buoyed by a midweek Capital One Cup victory, but the visitors are in decent form and the home side need to be aware of in-form Magpies striker Demba Ba, who has struck three goals in his last two appearances.

Sunderland faces Wigan at the Stadium of Light. The home side have drawn all four of their Premier League encounters so far this season, but will be looking for a win over the Latics. Black Cats new signing Steven Fletcher has scored four goals in just three appearances.

Liverpool travels to Norwich City’s Carrow Road. Both clubs are yet to record their first league victories of the season, but both picked up morale boosting victories in midweek in the Capital One Cup.
