The Premier League returns this weekend and it looks as though there are some cracking fixtures taking place, as Paddy Power announce a new free bets offer and report plenty of interest in QPR v Chelsea, Sunderland v Liverpool and Man Utd v Wigan.
Kicking things off in the early lunchtime match are Norwich City and West Ham United as the two sides go up against each other at Carrow Road.
Norwich have bounced back well after their opening day thrashing against Fulham, drawing with both Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham. West Ham have six points on the board but were less than impressive on their travels against Swansea so will want an improvement this weekend.
Many of the Premier League’s big teams are then in action in the 3pm kick-offs, making for a great afternoon of football.
Arsenal host Southampton and will be searching for their first goal and victory on home soil and will feel confident about doing just that against a Southampton side that are yet to take a point this season.

Manchester United are at home to Wigan Athletic in what they will be seeing as a must win. Wigan made a habit of beating the big teams last season so will be upbeat about picking something up at Old Trafford.
Both Chelsea and Manchester City then face tough trips away from home. Chelsea have started the season flying, taking maximum points and they travel to big-spenders QPR, who, in contrast, have started the campaign slowly. This is of course a local derby, so anything can happen.
City are then away to Stoke, which is a very tough match. The champions have seven points so far and will be hopeful of all three points here, whereas Stoke have drawn each of their three matches.
The final game at 3pm on Saturday is between Aston Villa and Swansea, who sit at opposite ends of the table at this early stage as the Swans are still unbeaten.
Saturday evening’s fixture is between Sunderland and Liverpool at the Stadium of Light. The Black Cats have played two matches so far and drawn them both, so will be searching for their first victory of the campaign. Liverpool are also looking for their first win after a poor start sees them in the relegation zone.
Two other teams yet to win a match so far – Reading and Tottenham go up against each other in the Super Sunday fixture this weekend.
Rounding off the action on Monday evening is one of the pick of the matches as Everton host Newcastle at Goodison Park. Both teams are chasing a Champions League spot this year and know if they are to do that then they need to be picking up points from these games.
Bring on the action in this enthralling league!
