CRYSTAL PALACE vs ARSENAL Saturday 26th 12.45pm
With only 3 points from 8 games, Palace are sitting second to bottom of the table, they have lost five successive Premier League games, and they host an Arsenal side who are two points clear at the top of the table. And to top it all off, they’ve lost their manager Ian Holloway who left by mutual consent in midweek.
MAN UNITED vs STOKE CITY Saturday 26th 3.00pm
The nerves are visible around Old Trafford at the moment, with a disappointing result for the Reds last week against Southampton. But a more promising performance against Real Sociedad on Wednesday will give David Moyes hope that they can get all three points against Stoke.
SOUTHAMPTON vs FULHAM Saturday 26th 5.30pm
Southampton have made a strong start to the season, conceding only 3 goals in 8 games, and got a deserved point at Old Trafford last weekend. But Fulham were impressive in their win against Crystal Palace and will be hoping to take that form into this game.
SUNDERLAND vs NEWCASTLE Sunday 27th 1.30pm
The North East derby always promises to be a good game, and Sunderland need a win if they want to stay up this year; they have only 1 point and sit bottom of the table. Newcastle will want to keep as much distance between themselves and Sunderland as possible, and try to break into the top half of the league.
CHELSEA vs MAN CITY Sunday 27th 4.00pm
Tensions are sure to be high for both teams. In a massive game for both clubs, Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Jose Mourinho is unbeaten in 64 Barclays Premier League home games as manager of Chelsea, and City will be desperate to put an end to that record.
NEWCASTLE vs MAN CITY Wednesday 30th 7.45pm
City’s away form hasn’t been great so far this season, but a win here could make a serious statement of intent. Newcastle will be hoping that the extra day of rest will tell in their Capital One Cup match with Manchester City at St. James Park. But it is a massive test for the Magpies, as City have a big squad with plenty of talent.
