Preview – Premier League: Matchweek 3

Premier league

The premier league continues this week with a couple of block-buster games at either end of the table. Heading the table is a 6-way tie between reigning champions Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and perhaps the suprising inclusions of Bournemouth and Watford. Further down, following their disappointing loss last weekend to Brighton, Manchester United find themselves in ninth while at the tail end of the table Arsenal, Huddersfield, West Ham and Fulham are all yet to pick up any points.

The weekend’s action begins with premier league minnows, Wolves, hoping to defy the reigning top-dogs as they host Manchester City. The main bulk of games sees Southampton take on Leicester City while Bournemouth host Everton. Elsewhere, Neil Warnock’s newly promoted Cardiff will be hoping to record their first win against a struggling Huddersfield side while Arsenal will hope to kick-start Unai Emery’s revolution against their city rivals, West Ham. In saturday’s late kick-off, Liverpool hope to extend their winning start against Brighton – a team which will be brimming with confidence after their shock win against Manchester United last week.

Sunday’s games kick-off with Watford hosting a Crystal Palace side looking to bounce back after Monday night’s loss to Liverpool and continues with Chelsea facing a tough trip up to the North-east as they visit Newcastle’s St James’ Park. Struggling Fulham and Burnley go head-to-head at 4 o’clock. Monday night sees Tottenham play host to Manchester United.
