Big Premiership Games

This weekend sees some of the biggest games of the Premier league so far, with clashes at the top and the bottom of the table.

The highlight of the weekend sees European Champions Chelsea take on fierce rivals Liverpool.

In the past, these two sides have played out some epic encounters, both in domestic and European competition, and with both sides looking for the win, it looks set to cause fireworks again.

Also on Sunday, Manchester City entertain Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium.

Both sides had a miserable week in Europe and will be keen to get back to winning ways. The managers are also under pressure from their respective fans, making it a game neither side can afford to lose.

Elsewhere, there is a bottom of the table clash between Reading and Norwich City. The Royals are still looking for their first victory in the league this season, whereas Norwich have seen a resurgence of late, winning three and drawing one of their last four games in all competitions.

There is a London derby at the Emirates stadium as Arsenal face high flying Fulham, with the Gunners hoping to return to their early season form as quickly as possible.

Current league leaders Manchester United travel to the midlands to face Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa in Saturday’s  evening kickoff, without injured Nani.

However after securing their place in the last 16 of the Champions league in midweek, the boys from Old Trafford can now focus on the league for the next few months as they aim to take another title.

QPR are still looking for that away victory in the league and they head to Stoke and the fortress at the Britannia Stadium, who themselves will be looking to return to the points after taking nothing from Carrow Road last time out.

West Ham face Newcastle in a mid-table clash on Sunday afternoon, with many players returning to their old club. Again it is a game where a draw is acceptable but if one side can snatch it with a goal, they will continue to stay with the pack for European qualification.

In form Everton face Sunderland, Swansea take on Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium and Wigan face West Brom in the weekend’s other encounters.
