There is a busy weekend of Premier League action this weekend with Man City v Swansea, Aston Villa v Norwich, Arsenal v QPR, Chelsea v Man Utd, Everton v Liverpool Newcastle v West Brom odds as Paddy Power release a new free bets offer for the football, and report that this weekend should be the busiest of the Premiership season so far for punters.
There are six games taking place on Saturday alone, and crucial points up for grabs. With the league table starting to take shape, each team is searching for their best form.
The first match on Saturday sees Aston Villa and Norwich City go head to head from 12.45pm. Villa boss Paul Lambert left the Canaries in the summer of course, so this adds extra spice to the fixture.
Things aren’t going too well for the Scotsman at his new club either and after their 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend, Chris Hughton’s Norwich are actually a point and two places above their hosts, and their price of 3/1 for the away win is sure to attract plenty of interest.

Looking at the matches getting underway at 3pm, Arsenal – who are under pressure after two defeats in a week – take on bottom of the table Queens Park Rangers. Nothing but three points will do for Arsene Wenger’s men in this one, and after a lacklustre defeat in the Champions League midweek against Schalke, Rangers fans could be sniffing an upset at the Emirates.
Mark Hughes’s side can be backed to do the unthinkable and take the points back to Loftus Road at a big looking price of 8/1, which could be a touch of value for punters.
The second London derby of the day then sees Reading and Fulham do battle at the Madjeski Stadium. The home side are the only team other than QPR to not record a win so far this season and against a Fulham side that doesn’t always travel well, they will hope Saturday is the day.
Elsewhere, Stoke City are at home to Sunderland, while in-form West Ham travel to face a Wigan side that hasn’t won in five Premier League games.
The final match of Saturday is a 5.30pm kick-off between Manchester City and Swansea. The Champions will be hoping to recover from a disappointing week in Europe, while Swansea will look to exploit any negative tension in the City ranks.
It may well be seen as a home banker, but City will be wary of a Swansea side that will be positive from the very first whistle. If the away side play with their usual attacking freedom and it clicks into gear for them, it might not be as straight forward as many think.
The Swans can be backed at a big price of 14/1 with Bet365 to take all three points back to Wales, while Roberto Mancini’s men are a predictably short 1/4 for the home win.
Overall, this fixture rounds off yet another entertaining day of Premier League action.
