Premier League match previews

It’s the return of Premier League football after the international break. Get stuck into these match previews to prepare for the weekend of football ahead.

Check out all of our match previews below.

West Ham United Vs Spurs

Key men: Felipe Anderson (West Ham); Heung-Min Son (Spurs)

Prediction: West Ham United 1 – 2 Spurs

Jose Mourinho returns to the Premier League in place of the outgoing Mauricio Pochettino. I think Mourinho’s new Spurs team will get off to a winning start at West Ham on Saturday.

Watford Vs Burnley

Key men: Gerard Deulofeu (Watford); Ashley Barnes (Burnley)

Prediction: Watford 1 – 1 Burnley

Not exactly the most eagerly-anticipated tie of the weekend. Expect a tight game that could well end in a draw.

Arsenal Vs Southampton

Key men: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal); Danny Ings (Southampton)

Prediction: Arsenal 2 – 1 Southampton

Unai Emery’s Arsenal are struggling but so too are Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Saints. Expect a home win for The Gunners.

Bournemouth Vs Wolves

Key men: Harry Wilson (Bournemouth); Ruben Neves (Wolves)

Prediction: Bournemouth 1 – 1 Wolves

A score draw. Wolves have come good after a shaky start to the campaign and these two sides are very evenly matched.

Brighton Vs Leicester City

Key men: Neal Maupay (Brighton); Jamie Vardy (Leicester)

Prediction: Brighton 0 – 2 Leicester City

Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying Foxes will take all three points here. Possibly with a clean sheet for the away side, too.

Crystal Palace Vs Liverpool

Key men: Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace); Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1 – 3 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool should have enough about them to win comfortably at Selhurst Park, even without the injured Mohamed Salah.

Everton Vs Norwich City

Key men: Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton); Teemu Pukki (Norwich)

Prediction: Everton 2 – 0 Norwich City

A home win for Everton here as Norwich are plunged deeper and deeper into relegation trouble.

Manchester City Vs Chelsea

Key men: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City); N’Golo Kante (Chelsea)

Prediction: Manchester City 3 – 2 Chelsea

The game of the weekend. A high-scoring win for City is my feeling for this clash.

Sheffield United Vs Manchester United

Key men: Lys Mousset (Sheffield United); Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)

Prediction: Sheffield United 1 – 1 Manchester United

Chris Wilder’s well-organised Sheffield United side will make life very difficult for Manchester United on Sunday. I think this one will be a draw.

Aston Villa Vs Newcastle United

Key men: Jack Grealish (Aston Villa); Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle)

Prediction: Aston Villa 1 – 0 Newcastle United

A win for Dean Smith’s men on Monday night at Villa Park.
