England Premier League — 05 October 2012

This weekend is another exciting one in the Premier League. It all starts at 12:30, as Manchester City play Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium. Both teams are unbeaten so far, but neither has been in sparkling form.

Sunderland have drawn four out of their five matches so far this season and City have won three and drawn three so far in the top flight this season.

Elsewhere, top of the table Chelsea host strugglers Norwich City at Stamford Bridge. The Blues will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table, while the visitors will be expecting a tough trip to London.

Everton are currently in second place in the Premier League table and will be looking to keep pace with Chelsea, as the Toffees make the short trip to Wigan’s DW Stadium. The home side have lost three consecutive top flight matches and it will be difficult to end that run against the in-form Merseyside outfit.

Arsenal face a tough trip to London rivals West Ham in the late kick-off at the Boleyn Ground. The home side are currently above the visitors by two points in the Premier League and will be looking to move up the table with a victory over Arsene Wenger’s men.

Sunday sees arguably the game of the weekend as Newcastle United host Manchester United at the Sports Direct Arena. The visitors are currently third in the top flight, after suffering a 3-2 defeat at home to Tottenham in their last league outing.

The home side have enjoyed mixed fortunes this season so far. Alan Pardew’s men are currently 10th in the Premier League table. The Magpies will be hoping that striker Demba Ba can continue his scoring streak. The striker has scored six goals in six appearances for the home side this season.
