Premier League preview – 14th-16th September
A look ahead to the English top flight's matches this weekend
This weekend’s Premier League fixtures kick-off at Old Trafford, with Crystal Palace the proverbial lambs to the slaughter.
Ian Holloway’s side are long shots to get any kind of result against the Premier League champions, and Manchester United manager David Moyes will be hoping for a comfortable victory.
Arsenal’s trip to Sunderland is the pick of the three o’clock fixtures, with Mesut Ozil set to make his debut for the Gunners against Paolo Di Canio’s side.
Manchester City travel to Stoke and Spurs host Norwich as some of the division’s top teams kick-off at the traditional time, whilst Aston Villa’s clash with Newcastle also promises to be an exciting encounter.
Cardiff’s trip to Hull might be less so, whilst West Brom travel to Fulham hoping to get off the bottom of the table with a win.
Jose Mourinho takes his Chelsea side to Everton in the day’s late kick-off, with the Toffees short of firepower thanks to a clause in Romelu Lukaku’s loan contract.
Southampton host West Ham in a battle of style over substance on Sunday, before Liverpool travel to Swansea to bring the weekend to a conclusion on Monday night.
