LONDON (Sporting Alert) — The following are the English Barclays Premier League games taking place this weekend.
Champions Manchester City will get the action going with an early kick-off against a very confident West Ham United side at Boleyn Ground.
West Ham are currently in the top four in the table standings and are riding high on recent results and will surely make life very difficult for the visitors.
But one of the highlighted fixtures in Week 9 is Sunday’s clash between Manchester United and leaders Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Chelsea remains undefeated on the season and will start the game as the favourites against a Manchester United side which is struggling to keep clean sheets at the moment.
Elsewhere, in the EPL this weekend, Sunderland will entertain Arsenal, eagerly waiting to get back on the playing field, following their embarrassing 8-0 thrashing suffered at the hands of Southampton the last time out.
Arsenal come into this contest on the back of a late 2-1 Champions League victory in midweek, but manager Arsene Wenger is calling on his team to improve its performance from the last outing.
Liverpool, looking to bounce back from the midweek Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, play Hull City at Anfield, Tottenham Hotspur take on Newcastle United at White Hart Lane – coming off a big win in the Europa League – while the struggling Queens Park Rangers will face a Aston Villa side heading in the wrong way in the EPL table standings.
