England Premier League — 22 September 2012

Some of the Premier League big guns face each other on Sunday. In the early kick-off Liverpool faces arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield.

Liverpool has failed to find a victory in their first four Premier League encounters.

Although a youthful Liverpool side gained a 5-3 Europa League victory against Swiss side Young Boys of Bern on Thursday night.

Manchester United has started to grind out results and are currently second in the Premier League. United are without England internationals Wayne Rooney ad Ashley Young for the short trip.

In another big clash champions Manchester City host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium. The champions are currently fourth in the top flight and will be hoping to pick up another three points against Arsene Wenger’s visitors.

Arsenal has hit a decent run of form, after drawing their first two league games of the season 0-0. The Gunners are now third in the fledgling Premier League table and look like they could mount a realistic title challenge this season.

The promotion of Steve Bould to assistant manager has led to the side from North London keeping three clean sheets in their four league games so far this season. That defensive record will be put to the test by Roberto Mancini’s side.

Tottenham will be looking to build on their first Premier League victory of the season at Reading last time out with another victory, as Spurs host QPR at White Hart Lane. Tottenham drew with Italian side Lazio on Thursday night.

The visitors have collected just two points from four Premier League games so far this season. A summer of upheaval at Loftus Road has seen 12 new players arrive at the club. Hoops boss Mark Hughes will be encouraged by his sides 0-0 draw with local rivals Chelsea in their last Premier League outing.

Who will be the big winners on Sunday?
