The midweek European action will only serve as a catalyst to increase the attention on English Premier League this weekend. All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge where Chelsea will take on Manchester United. That takes nothing away from the other encounters which are going to be fiercely competed.

Bournemouth versus Tottenham

It’s going to be a clash of two exciting managers where Mauricio Pochettino will have one eye on claiming the top spot. Having kept in touch with the leaders with a battling draw in the last round, the Spurs wouldn’t want to drop further points. Back them to win and may be even a goal for Dele Alli could be on the cards.


Arsenal versus Middlesbrough

These are exciting times for Gunners’ fans. Even the most skeptic of their supporters are purring over their recent performances. Mesut Ozil looks to be in the best of his form while they find goals pretty easily. Back the Gunners put it easily past the struggling Borough. Back up Ozil to score too!

Leicester City versus Crystal Palace

It’s really frustrating for Claudio Ranieri – especially during Premier League weekends. For a team that is easily picking victories in Europe, Leicester are struggling domestically. On the other hand, Palace are flying better than their hosts. With some luck, they could even stun the Champions! Back Palace to surprise the Foxes and pinch at least a point.

West Ham versus Sunderland

After a nervy start to the season, West Ham seems to have found their form at the right time. They still aren’t free from the perils of relegation but they have the quality to climb up the table rapidly. And of course, David Moyes and Sunderland are in bigger doldrums and shouldn’t present huge problems. Back the Hammers to win at home, at last!

Hull City versus Stoke City

A six-pointer clash considering the fact that Stoke are looking in all sorts of problems this season. Both teams are looking for some sort of stability which makes this clash very crucial. But Stoke look better placed and should come out of this clash with all points.

Other matches

Swansea take on Watford in a very crucial game for Bob Bradley. Their performance last week gave some confidence that they could make a dash for survival. Back the Swans to pick up points.

Burnley taken on Everton in a game that could be a feisty encounter. Back the hosts to pinch at least a point from the high-flying Toffees.

Liverpool take on West Brom at home in a game that should see goals – after a goalless draw last week at Anfield. Back the hosts to win by at least two goals.
