Published Add your comment

This week’s Premier League fixtures kick-off with Arsenal looking to bounce back from their defeat during the opening round of matches.

Arsene Wenger’s side lost 3-1 to Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium, and the Gunners will look to bounce back against Fulham at Craven Cottage in the early Saturday clash.

Newcastle’s meeting with West Ham is the pick of the three o’clock fixtures, with Alan Pardew looking to mastermind a victory against his former club.

Rickie Lambert will hope to keep his winning touch when Southampton host Sunderland, whilst Everton host a West Brom side that will not feature Nicolas Anelka.

Two newly promoted sides are also in action, with Hull looking to get on the board at home to Norwich, and Crystal Palace making the trip to play Stoke in the Potteries.

In the day’s late kick-off, Liverpool travel to the Midlands to face the Villains in a match that pairs two teams who impressed in the first week of the season.

On Sunday, Cardiff host Manchester City looking to cause a major upset against Manuel Pellegrini’s side, whilst Europa League duo Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City meet at White Hart Lane.

It all serves as a build-up to Monday night’s main course, when Manchester United host Chelsea in a mouthwatering clash at Old Trafford.

Both sides have made winning starts to the campaign, and it could be an early indicator as to which side is in the best title shape at this stage of the season.
