Let’s step into the unknown see what the weekend has in store….
SATURDAY 30TH OCTOBER
Leicester City 12:30 Arsenal
This set of fixtures kicks off at 12:30 with a game between Leicester and Arsenal. Both teams sit on 14 points and are in similar form coming into this game. Both teams won in the Carabao Cup in midweek, though Leicester were taken to penalties. Aubameyang and Vardy have been scoring well recently, as has Tielemens. Tierny and White possible doubts for Arsenal.
Burnley 15:00 Brentford
Five 3pm matches this weekend, the first of which features Burnley and Brentford. Burnley are still in the bottom three even though they gained a 2-2 draw against Southampton last weekend. Chris Wood is on a very poor run of form. Brentford have been putting in spirited performances which sees them sit 12th in the table. David Raya is out for 3-4 months with injury so there will be a new face between the goalposts.
Liverpool 15:00 Brighton & Hove Albion
Liverpool versus Brighton next. Both teams were in midweek cup action, Liverpool ran out comfortable winners against Preston whereas Brighton lost on penalties to Leicester. The Reds recorded a fantastic win against Man U last weekend with Salah in incredible form. Brighton lie in 5th though their form has been poor of late. I know who my money is on…
Manchester City 15:00 Crystal Palace
Next up, Manchester City take on Crystal Palace on home soil. City are third, a couple of points off of top. Phil Foden scored a brace last weekend so you'd hope his spot in the team is safe. Crystal Palace come into this one off of the back of four draws. Interesting to note that Christian Benteke has got two goals in his last two outings.
Newcastle United 15:00 Chelsea
At St James Park, Newcastle take on Chelsea. Newcastle are still manager-less at the moment but that didn't stop them picking up a point against Palace last time out. Callum Wilson has been in good form since his return from injury. Chelsea put seven past Norwich last weekend and were victorious in the cup in midweek so will be confident coming into this one. Still no Lukaku, but Chillwell makes up for it. Maybe.
Watford 15:00 Southampton
The last of the 3pm games is Watford v Southampton at Vicarage Road. The Hornets are a couple of places above the Saints in the table after their win against Everton last weekend which arrested a two game losing streak. The Saints have started to rotate their strikers with both Armstrong and Adams out of the team in recent weeks but Broja is injured for this one.
Tottenham Hotspur 17:30 Manchester United
At 5:30 is the weekend's big game between Spurs and Manchester United. Tottenham have had and up and down season so far, they were beaten by West Ham last weekend after back-to-back wins. Kane still isn't back to his best. Manchester United have only recorded one win and one draw in their last five league games and the pressure is certainly on Ole at the moment – can Ronaldo save him from a nightmare weekend?
SUNDAY 31ST OCTOBER
Norwich City 14:00 Leeds United
Just the two games this Sunday, the first of which kicks off at 2pm and features Norwich against Leeds. The Canaries are still bottom on the league without a win to their name. Leeds are in 17th and themselves have only won once so far, but will be hoping for that to change today. As always there is an injury doubt over Raphina.
Aston Villa 16:30 West Ham United
Sunday's late game is Aston Villa against West Ham at Villa Park. Villa come into this game off of the back of three straight loses. Goalie Martinez may be missing for this one. West Ham are probably not the side you'd want to be up against, they've won their last two league games, beat holders Man City in the cup and are unbeaten in Europe. Antonio still in fine form.
MONDAY 1ST NOVEMBER
Wolverhampton Wanderers 20:00 Everton
And finally, the Monday night fixture is Wolves versus Everton. Wolves form has picked up recently after a poor start to the season. There's a doubt over Marcal's fitness. Everton are eighth and only have a single win to their name in their last five matches. Calvert Lewin is still out injured but Richarlison is back.
So, don’t say you haven’t been warned! If you survive the Halloween weekend check back on Tuesday to see if your team managed a trick or treat!!!!
