Arsenal v Liverpool and other Premier League fixtures

Arsenal v Liverpool and other Premier League fixtures

Another Premier League weekend is on the way and here is a brief preview to the upcoming matches.

Newcastle United v Chelsea
Newcastle United have hardly recovered after an exhausting 120 minutes match against Manchester City in midweek. Jose Mourinho, who used his second-string players against Arsenal and played one day earlier, is likely to get a good result at St. James Park.

Fulham v Manchester United
United have had a fine run of form in October but still need to convince their supporters they are back in the race and shaky Martin Jol’s Fulham are the team to beat as United won the last five Premier League matches against The Cottagers.

Hull City v Everton
Sunderland might have clinched the derby against Newcastle last weekend, but Steve Bruce’s Tigers will be desperate to get back to winning ways after suffering two narrow defeats to The Spurs in four days. Hull’s main striker Robert Brady is back to business.

Manchester City v Norwich City
Manuel Pellegrini’s side look unbeatable at Etihad Stadium and they take on Norwich City who have recently been quite poor. City had a tough night in Newcastle in the Capital One Cup but most of the first-choice players had a rest. The Canaries had a brushing at the hands of United.

Stoke City v Southampton
The Potters will be desperate to break Mauricio Pochettino’s defence that has only conceded three goals so far. To make things worse they gave their all in a thriller against Birmingham City in The League Cup and their fitness will be under question.

West Bromwich Albion v Crystal Palace
Both clubs did not play in midweek and are set for a clash at The Hawthorns. Interim manager Keith Millen will guide Crystal Palace yet another time.

West Ham United v Aston Villa
Sam Allardyce used his second string squad against Burnley in the Cup and will be able to field the main guard against misfiring Aston Villa. However, Christian Benteke is still looking for goals after being sidelined with an injury and is likely to be of a big threat to the Hammers.

Arsenal v Liverpool
Match of the week between the leaders attracts huge hype as Arsene Wenger needs the best from his defenders to stop Luis Suarez, strongly linked with a move to The Emirates last summer. Arsenal, who had an incredible start of the season, have slowed down after losing to Dortmund and Chelsea and now need to prove they are capable of beating the best opposition. However, they are missing the main defensive midfielder Mathieu Flamini and need to keep in mind the trip to Germany for a crucial clash with Borussia on Wednesday.

Everton v Tottenham Hotspur
Andre Villas-Boas did not use some of his big names against Hull City but his side had a tough night needing a penalty shoot-out to beat the Tigers. In-form Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku is not going to have an easy life against solid Tottenham defence that only conceded five matches so far, including three from West Ham.

Cardiff City v Swansea City
The first south Wales derby since Swansea were promoted to the Premier League in 2011 is likely to garnish the upcoming matchday.

Arsenal are too desperate to succeed in Europe, so they will not give 100% tomorrow and Liverpool who virtually have nothing but Premier League will kill'em off, that's for sure. Or Arsenal will play tomorrow and suck in Dortmund :)
