There are some Premier League crackers on Saturday including Everton v Chelsea and Manchester United v Liverpool
We’re welcoming back Premier League football with open arms after a fortnight break punctuated by largely insipid international matches.
There are several attractive fixtures on Saturday and it all starts at Goodison Park when Everton square off against a Chelsea team who have just four points from their first four games.
This promises to be a big test for Jose Mourinho’s men, with John Terry having failed to play a full ninety minutes for the Blues since the opening match against Swansea City.
Arsenal entertain a Stoke team missing Ibrahim Afellay and Charlie Adam after the pair were sent off against West Brom, with the Potters yet to land a Premier League win and this will be seen by many as a home banker.
However, Manchester City might be left off the coupon by several punters when they head to Selhurst Park to face a Crystal Palace side who have enjoyed a fast start to their campaign.
Nine points from their first four games is a great return and Alan Pardew’s team will be full of confidence after beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Norwich and Bournemouth square off at Carrow Road in the battle of the new boys, while the third promoted team Watford face Swansea at Vicarage Road, with no goals scored at this ground so far.
West Brom v Southampton will see Rickie Lambert line up against his former club, with Saido Berahino potentially on the bench after missing out on a move to Tottenham.
Then comes the headline act at 5.30pm, with Manchester United and Liverpool locking horns at Old Trafford. This is a fixture with plenty of needle and the visitors will have to do without the suspended Philippe Coutinho as they look to become the first team to score at Old Trafford this season.
On Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur head to Wearside to face a Sunderland team who are still shipping goals but will Harry Kane manage to open his account?
Leicester face Aston Villa later in the afternoon, with the Foxes having enjoyed a healthy return of ten points although the Villans have acquitted themselves well on the road this term.
On Monday night, West Ham will be looking to finally produce the goods at the Boleyn Ground. Defeats against Leicester and Bournemouth have been book-ended by superb victories away to Arsenal and Liverpool.
