England Premier League — 14 September 2012

The English Premier League returns this weekend, after a short absence due to the World Cup qualifiers.

The first action of the day comes at Carrow Road on Saturday lunchtime, where Norwich hosts West Ham. The home side have drawn two out of their first three league games this season.

West Ham have made a decent start to their return to the top flight with two wins out of three games. Arsenal hosts Southampton at the Emirates Stadium.

The visitors have had a difficult start to life back in the Premier League, having lost all three of their top flight games so far. The Gunners haven’t conceded in the league so far this season.

Elsewhere, in-form Swansea City visits Aston Villa. Villa picked up their first point of the league season at Newcastle last time out and will be hoping to build on that at Villa Park. Swansea will be looking to build on the seven points they have already collected.

Top of the table Chelsea take a short trip across London to QPR’s Loftus Road. The home side have picked up just one point this season, but the visitors have maximum points from their first three games. QPR will be hoping that their new team gels sooner rather than later.

Champions Manchester City face a difficult trip to the Britannia Stadium to play Stoke City. The home side have drawn all three games so far this season and are looking for their first win of the season.

City has won two and drew one so far this season and will be looking for maximum points away from home.

Another team on seven points West Brom visit out-of-form Fulham. The Cottagers have lost their last two top flight games, while the Baggies have won two and drew one in the league this season.

Manchester United will be hoping to extend their Premier League winning run to three games when Wigan visits Old Trafford. The away side have had an indifferent start to their league campaign picking up four points from a possible nine.

Two sides who have yet to claim their first Premier League victories of the season meet at the Stadium of Light, as Sunderland host Liverpool. The home side have drawn both of their games in the top flight this season so far and this is their first home league game of the season.

Liverpool have picked up just one point this season from a possible nine, drawing at home with Manchester City and being defeated by Arsenal and West Brom. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is still waiting for his first league victory in charge of the club.
