English Premier League (EPL) will be back into the thick of things this weekend, after a brief hiatus for International encounters. We have two blockbuster matches this weekend at Stamford Bridge and Anfield. That’s not just it – there are many more matches in the weekend that are waiting to keep us entertained.

Arsenal versus Swansea City

Just like every season, Arsenal fans are drooling over a couple of performances and predicting that they can win the title. It’s too early too little to predict anything but for now Arsenal look good enough to continue their winning run. Of course, this match is Bob Bradley’s debut as Swansea manager and there would be extra attention on him. Can the Swans spring a surprise and snatch a point? Looks highly unlikely but that’s a prospect you can’t rule out!


West Brom versus Tottenham

It’s tough not to notice the high-flyers Tottenham – especially after their win over Manchester City prior to the International break. There is expectancy that they would be strong contenders for the title. But if they want to make sure their charge doesn’t fizzle out like last year, they would be advised not to melt down in matches like this. Back Spurs to win by two goals.


Stoke City versus Sunderland

A brilliant six-pointer isn’t it! Stoke City and Sunderland are rooted to the bottom of the table and no wonder why. Both teams have shown very little creativity and are struggling to get their season going. A battling win for Stoke? Looks like the Potters will have a win at last.

Bournemouth versus Hull City

Two teams that are currently stacked together in the mid-table will be an interesting watch any time of the season. Bournemouth are punching above their weight but take nothing away from Hull who made a mockery of their problems so far. But, they still are closer to the bottom half than to safety. This could be an interesting scoring draw.

Crystal Palace versus West Ham

What a difficult start to the season for West Ham! They are rooted to the bottom three and their struggles are not just at their new home. It would be interesting to see if the Eagles who are high-flying in the top eight can continue to do so. A win for the hosts? Looks highly likely.
