With 10 games played in the Premier League already, the league table is starting to shape up, with the favorites to win the competition or relegate starting to be clear.
Chelsea play Manchester United in the most anticipated game this weekend. Antonio Conte’s team is trying to snap out of a series of unconvincing performances and bad results, the latest of which was the 3-0 defeat at the hands of Serie A’s Roma.
Leaders Manchester City will also have a difficult mission to continue their winning streak as they meet Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal. Even should Pep Guardiola’s team lose, they will still retain the number one place for at least one more week.
West Ham is an upwards trend following the threat of manager Slaven Bilic losing his job. They take on Liverpool at home. It’s a game between two ambitious teams, who have so far performed below expectations.
Sunday’s games begin with Tottenham, fresh of their impressive victory over Real Madrid, taking on last place Crystal Palace. Victory by a few goals difference is on the cards for the London side, but Crystal Palace, desperate for points, to help them remain in the Premier League, could give Mauricio Pochettino’s team a run for their money.
The weekend action ends with Everton playing hosts to Watford. The encounter finds the two teams dealing with unexpected fortunes. On the one hand, Everton has had a terrible season that has already seen them change managers. Watford, on the other hand, has been one of this season’s biggest surprises and currently sits in a comfortable eighth place. Many football fans would have perhaps expected things to be the other way around. However, with relegation looming on the horizon for Everton, they will need to ensure to get all the points Sunday night.
