We’ve got Premier League fixtures on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday with tips for every single game
A rare treat for Premier League football fans on Friday night, with Aston Villa v Manchester United kicking off the weekend thanks to an English Defence League march taking place in Birmingham on Saturday.
Both teams were victorious during Game Week 1, with Tim Sherwood now hoping his Villa team can continue their good form and demonstrate that losing Fabian Delph and Christian Benteke was not all bad.
Meanwhile, Saturday brings us six top flight encounters, starting with Southampton v Everton at St Mary’s. Both teams opened with a 2-2 draw although the Saints are favourites to enjoy their first Premier League win of the season.
There are five matches taking place at 3pm including Sunderland’s home match with Norwich City as the Black Cats look to recover from that mauling at the King Power Stadium.
West Ham will hope to build on that excellent win at the Emirates against a Leicester team also buzzing, while Watford will hope to kick West Brom while they are down.
Spurs and Stoke will hope to get off the mark at White Hart Lane, with Swansea City looking to build on that superb 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
We’ve got a couple of cracking games lined up on Sunday. Crystal Palace look much-improved this term and enjoyed a 3-1 win at Norwich, with the Eagles now facing Arsenal in a London derby and the stakes are high for the Gunners.
A second defeat would represent a huge setback for title hopes this season, with Arsene Wenger likely to recall Alexis Sanchez for a game of huge significance.
Then we have the later game at the Etihad Stadium, with Manchester City hoping to turn the screw on Chelsea and open up a five-point gap over their title rivals.
Jose Mourinho has seen his team win and draw this fixture on the last two occasions although Thibaut Courtois is missing between the sticks and the champions were not on song against Swansea last weekend.
The final match of the weekend takes place on Monday night, with Liverpool facing new boys Bournemouth at Anfield.
The Cherries lost their opening game against Aston Villa although their attacking approach should make for an entertaining game against a Liverpool side who essentially nicked a win at the Britannia Stadium.
