The Premier League’s weekend fixtures kick-off with a mouthwatering clash between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side will look to bounce back from their midweek League Cup defeat to Chelsea, and a repeat of the 8-2 victory last season would certainly be well received.

Arsenal survived a huge scare against Reading in the same competition on Tuesday night, but need to keep winning in the league to get back in the title race.

Chelsea travel to Swansea in the pick of the 3 o’clock kick-offs, with David Luiz, Juan Mata and Frank Lampard all expected to miss out for the Blues.

Spurs need to bounce back from their midweek defeat to Norwich when they host Wigan, whilst Sunderland, Stoke City and Everton will all expect to claim three points.

Manchester City travel to West Ham United in the late kick-off, and can expect a rough ride against Sam Allardyce’s side at Upton Park.

On Sunday, QPR host Reading in a battle towards the bottom of the table, and Mark Hughes will need a victory to secure his job at Loftus Road.

Liverpool then host Newcastle United in the Super Sunday clash, and both sides are desperate to pull away from their current mid-table positions.
