This weekend sees another busy schedule in the Premier League. Arguably the two biggest fixtures of the weekend take place on Sunday.
The early kick-off sees Manchester City host Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium.
The home side haven’t yet hit their best form this season and have drawn their last two games, away at West Ham last weekend and at home with Dutch champions Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Tottenham will be looking to recover from a surprise 1-0 home defeat to Wigan last weekend. Spurs did claim a 3-1 victory over Maribor in Europa League on Thursday though. Thursday’s hat-trick hero Jermain Defoe could be partnered by Emmanuel Adebayor in Manchester.
Manchester City are currently on a 34 match unbeaten home run and it will be a difficult task for Spurs to change that.
In the later kick-off on Sunday Chelsea host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. The Blues were knocked off the top of the Premier League last weekend, after Roberto Di Matteo’s side drew 1-1 with Swansea.
Chelsea are now a point behind leaders Manchester United. The European champions will be confident of victory over a Liverpool team who have performed inconsistently this season. Liverpool have won just two games since Brendan Rodgers took over at Anfield in the summer. Chelsea’s record signing Fernando Torres will face his former-club on Sunday.
Another game taking place on Sunday is Newcastle vs. West Ham at St James Park. Both sides could go into the top six of the Premier League with victory. West Ham are ninth and Newcastle are just one position behind them in the top flight table.
Other Premier League fixtures:
Arsenal vs. Fulham
Everton vs. Sunderland
Reading vs. Norwich
Stoke vs. QPR
Wigan vs. West Brom
Southampton vs. Swansea
Aston Villa vs. Manchester United
