Without a lunch-time kick-off this week, it is all about the 3pm matches and the pick on Saturday is probably Arsenal at home to Fulham. A London derby which both teams will approach positively, no-one quite knows which way it will go.
If Arsenal play as everyone knows they can, it should be a home victory, but Fulham can be a dangerous side. If the Gunners aren’t at their best, the likes of Damien Duff and Dimitar Berbatov will be ready to pounce.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Reading – without a victory so far this season – take on a rejuvenated Norwich City side, while QPR – the second team yet to register three points – travel to Stoke.
With the pressure on Southampton manager Nigel Adkins, there will be plenty of attention on their home game with Swansea. Sitting rock bottom of the table and leaking goals, the Saints would love a positive afternoon to re-ignite their season. There should be goals in this one, with Swansea coming off the back of two good performances against Manchester City and Chelsea, as punters are given a hint of value on the 2/1 price on the away win.
You then have Wigan and West Brom going head to head at the DW Stadium. The Baggies go into this one in fine form – they sit 5th as things stand – while Wigan will be in good spirits after their impressive performance and victory at Tottenham last time out.
The final 3pm kick-off is a fascinating one between Everton and Sunderland at Goodison Park.
The home side have impressed many with their form this season and will hope for three points after four successive draws. Goals do not seem to be a problem for David Moyes’s side, with the Toffees finding the net in each of their last seven appearances in the Premiership, and with Sunderland’s goal scoring problems the home win looks one for the accumulator at a price of 1/2.
Then, the pressure is on Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill after a substantial summer of spending hasn’t been followed with particularly impressive form.
The final game on Saturday is the 5.30pm kick-off between Aston Villa and Manchester United.
Paul Lambert’s young Villa side will hope to take the game to the visitors, but United have a winning habit at the moment and will be the favourites to return to Manchester with the points.
Nani is set to miss the match through injury, but Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney looking threatening, supplied by Antonio Valencia down the wing, there should be plenty of chances for the away side, although the 8/15 may be a little on the short side.
All in all, it is set to be a busy and tense day in the Premier League.
