Tottenham vs. Chelsea
When: Saturday, Sept. 28 at 12:45 p.m. BST/7:45 a.m. ET
Where: White Hart Lane
Two of the sides currently vying for top honours in the English top flight, Chelsea and Tottenham, come together in Saturday’s early fixture in a match that could upset the domestic form of either club.
Traditionally, the early kickoff has a reputation for producing boring encounters, but it is sure to set the scene for fireworks on this occasion.
Between the two clubs, there’s a plethora of storylines to keep an eye out for in this meeting, ranging from the individual rivalry shared by Jose Mourinho and Andre Villas-Boas to the controversy regarding Willian’s late decision to move to West London instead of the north.
Two of the Premier League’s biggest spenders this summer, the Blues and Spurs have two of the deepest squads in the division, and Chelsea’s recent loss to FC Basel in the Champions League provides evidence that three points is certainly there to be had for AVB and his men.
Sunderland vs. Liverpool
When: Sunday, Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. BST/11 a.m. ET
Where: Stadium of Light
With losses on the board for both sides in their most recent league outings, it’s a case of who can bounce back best when Sunderland and Liverpool meet in the northeast this coming weekend.
As BBC Sport show, Paolo Di Canio was fighting an uphill battle with his own fans on Saturday as his side slumped to a 3-0 defeat against West Brom (the BBC also noted that Di Canio was sacked Sunday after the match):
Meanwhile, Liverpool lacked ingenuity in their deserved loss at home to Southampton. Having both gone goalless in their dismal defeats, one may not think their meeting is set to be a cracker, but the risk of further disappointment should rouse a response from both clubs.
Swansea vs. Arsenal
When: Saturday, Sept. 28 at 5:30 p.m. BST/12:30 p.m. ET
Where: Liberty Stadium
One might argue that between them, Arsenal and Swansea are the two clubs that produce the most attractive football in the Premier League.
With that being the case, the two passing-oriented sides should dazzle in their South Wales matchup this coming weekend.
Having both triumphed in Europe last week, the Gunners and the Swans are both in understandably jovial spirits at the moment and will put on a feast for the neutral on Saturday evening.
Specifically, it’s in the midfield that this match will be won or lost, with some of the Premier League’s best creative assets set to entertain.
