Premier League preview: 22nd September

Published Add your comment

Chelsea entertain Stoke in the game of the day on Saturday, with Roberto Di Matteo’s side looking to maintain their excellent start to the season.

Oscar impressed against Juventus in the Champions League and is in contention to start, whilst Stoke will need Pater Crouch in top form to stand a chance of victory.

Southampton, yet to pick up a point in the Premier League, host Aston Villa at 3pm, and Gaston Ramirez could make his first start for the Saints. Christian Benteke might do the same for the Villains after his goal against Swansea.

Andy Carroll is back in light training but won’t be fit to feature for West Ham, who host a Sunderland side missing Adam Johnson as he recovers from a thigh injury.

West Brom host Reading and Fulham travel to Wigan in the other three o’clock kick-offs, with Pavel Pogrebnyak and Dimitar Berbatov the players to watch.

Finally, in the early match of the day, Everton make the trip to Swansea, who hope to have Ashley Williams recovered from an ankle injury. Nikica Jelavic is out for the Toffees with a bruised knee.
