Sunderland vs Arsenal Preview
Arsenal struggled last week against another north-eastern team in the shape of Middlesbrough and now they make the trip to bottom-of-the-league Sunderland for a game which they need to win to remain near the top of the Premier League. Sunderland are yet to win a game and in fact have gained just two points since the beginning of the season so this should be a straightforward away win for the Gunners.
Arsenal players from all positions, particularly midfielders.
Manchester United vs Burnley Preview
After three league games without a win this looks like the ideal way for Manchester United to get back to winning ways; Burnley will certainly put up a good fight but it’s difficult to imagine that the points will be going anywhere apart from Old Trafford come 5pm.
Manchester United players from all positions.
Middlesbrough vs Bournemouth Preview
Boro grabbed an important draw away at Arsenal last weekend and they have an opportunity for at least a point against a Bournemouth team on good form but a little vulnerable on the road. Aitor Karanka’s team are without a win in seven games so a draw could be a solid prediction here – 0-0 or 1-1.
Avoid players from this fixture.
Spurs vs Leicester City Preview
Champions Leicester City have been poor away from home and this trip to White Hart Lane looks like a road to nowhere on Saturday; Spurs have drawn their last two games against lesser opposition and this is something of a ‘must win’ against another mid-table team of they are to stay in touch with the leagues’ leaders. There’s an outside chance of a draw here for the visitors but we’re going for the home win.
Midfielders and strikers from Spurs.
Watford vs Hull City Preview
Watford are unbeaten in three games but against some rather mediocre opposition; however they should still have enough quality to overcome a Hull City side who have lost five games in a row and are without a win in seven. Hull (and Sunderland) looked doomed even at this early stage of the season and we fully expect a home win for the Hornets.
Players from all positions from Watford – should be some bargain defenders here.
WBA vs Manchester City Preview
Manchester City are without a win in three Premier League games and though they’re still top of the league, Pep’s team could really do with a win against a West Brom team who are becoming hard to beat but not much a threat to the top ten in the Premier League. WBA lost 2-1 at Liverpool in their last game and this should be an away win but there’s a possibility of a draw. There’ll be plenty of possession for the visitors.
Midfielders and strikers from Man City.
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Preview
After a spell of good form, Crystal Palace now find themselves with just one point from the last three games and in 11th place in the league. What they don’t need is a visit from a Liverpool team who are joint top of the league and with five wins from the last six games. Liverpool do generally concede at least one goal but they score more so we should see some goals in this game.
