Manchester City will look to continue their impressive form with a trip to face Swansea, Manchester United will hope to bounce back from their recent slump as they welcome Leicester City to oldtrafford while Chelsea visits the Emirates to face the Gunners among other fixtures;

Manchester United vs Leicester City; Saturday 12:45pm

This game has all the elements of being a cracker. The two teams met earlier in the season in the community shield in Wembley with United running out 2-1 winners. They would also be looking to bounce back from their recent league slump which has seen them loose their last two games. Leicester City though have been impressive of recent following a slow start with record signing, Slimani finding his form. Expect a very tight and unpredictable game.

Bournemouth vs Everton; Saturday 3:00pm

Everton have been very impressive under Ronald Koeman and look like a team that can take on any team right now. Bournemouth on the other hand looks like a strong side so this game has all the elements of being entertaining. One of the very unpredictable games this weekend.

Liverpool vs Hull City; Saturday 3:00pm

Liverpool have been very good this season but then, most of their undoings have been against the minnows. The team is currently on a roll with four straight impressive wins and they will be looking to continue their form against a Hull City side that started well but have wobbled a bit in their last few games. Liverpool will attack, Hull City will defend and hit on the counter but expect Liverpool’s prowess to overcome a dogged Hull City team.

Middlesbrough vs Tottenham Hotspur; Saturday 3:00pm

Tottenham have not played spectacularly well this season but have always found a way to grind out the results and it shouldn’t be different here. Middlesbrough have some good players but their major issue right now is consistency. Expect them to make it tough for Tottenham who have lost Harry Kane to injury. A narrow win for Tottenham.

Stoke City vs West Brom; Saturday 3:00pm

Stoke City have had one of the most horrible start to their season in their history and find themselves bottom of the table. West Brom on the other hand have had a mixed season, a team you just never know what to expect from. If Stoke City are to get back on track, I just feel this is the games they have to capitalize on and I expect them to.

Swansea City vs Manchester City; Saturday 3:00pm

Manchester city are definitely on a roll and does Swansea City look like a team that can stop them? NO. Two games in four days against the same team does not help Swansea but if they need any motivation for this game, it is the fact that you wouldn’t want a team to beat you twice in your home ground within a space of four days. A tough one to look forward to.

Sunderland vs Crystal Palace; Saturday 3:00pm

Sunderland are strongly fighting for survival, Crystal Palace are beginning to find their feet. Fact is, David Moyes needs to win this game or else his job will strongly be on the line. Crystal Palace on the other hand will be hoping their good form can continue.

Arsenal vs Chelsea; Saturday 5:30pm

Another interesting EPL game to look forward to. Arsenal have found form after their stuttering start to the season while Chelsea weren’t impressive in the league last weekend but made up for it with an impressive showing in their Cup win over Leicester city in midweek. The interesting stat about this game is, Arsenal have not scored against Chelsea in the league in nearly five years. Would it continue? I Don’t think so. Expect a good game from two teams that love to attack so anticipate goals in this one.

West Ham vs Southampton; Sunday 4:00pm

West Ham have been on a slump recently while Southampton have found their feet with Charlie Austin finally firing for Claude Puel’s men. This will definitely be a tough game with the pressure more on West Ham following their unimpressive recent form. A tough one but I expect West Ham to get back to winning ways in this one.

Burnley vs Watford; Monday 8:00pm

Im surprised Burnley have still not learnt their lesson from their previous time in the premier league, as they face a Watford side buoyed with impressive performances in the last two games against West Ham and Manchester United. Expect a tough game. Id be surprised though if Burnley’s defence can keep out the attacking prowess of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo.
