Premier League preview: 24th/25th November

The Premier League boasts a full schedule this weekend, with Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion kicking-off proceedings in an uninspiring early clash at the Stadium of Light.

Manchester United host manager-less QPR in the pick of the 3pm matches, although Harry Redknapp will reportedly be in the stands at Old Trafford and is poised to take charge at Loftus Road following Mark Hughes’ departure on Friday morning.

Everton will look to get back to winning ways against Norwich City at Goodison Park, whilst Reading travel to Wigan Athletic and Stoke host Fulham.

Arsenal travel to Aston Villa in the day’s late kick-off, and Arsene Wenger’s side will hope to continue their momentum following wins in the north London derby and Champions League.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers makes his return to Swansea City in Sunday’s early kick-off, with defender Ashley Williams talking-up his rivalry with Luis Suarez earlier in the week.

Second-bottom Southampton host Newcastle United, before Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United meet in a capital clash on the same day.

Finally, the game of the weekend comes on Super Sunday, when Manchester City travel to Stamford Bridge to face Rafa Benitez’s Chelsea.

Roberto Mancini wants his players to bounce back from their Champions League elimination, whilst Benitez is hoping to have an instant impact on the Blues after replacing Roberto Di Matteo on an interim basis.
