LONDON, Sporting Alert – Here are the English Premier League (EPL) fixtures and TV channels for Week 15, from December 5-7.
The EPL Week 15 schedule get going on Saturday, Dec. 5 at that Britannia Stadium where leaders Manchester City travel to take on Stoke City.
Manchester City are coming off a smashing 3-1 victory over Southampton in their last outing, but will be without striker Sergio Aguero (heel) and could be without first-choice goalkeeper Joe Hart (hamstring) against Stoke.
The EPL leaders come in as the favourites, having dominated the recent meetings with Stoke City.
The Citizens have won seven and dropped two of their 14 Premier League matchups with The Potters.
Second place Leicester City travel to Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City, hoping to extend their good form this season.
The Foxes played to a 1-1 draw with Manchester United last week, but have won four of the last five EPL games.
Their last defeat came on Sept. 26 against Arsenal after Arsene Wenger’s team eased to a 5-2 victory.
Swansea City have won their last three EPL battles at home against Leicester City, but Garry Monk’s side has been unimpressive recently.
In their last six games, the Swans have won just once, while losing four, including a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool last week.
Elsewhere on Saturday, third place Manchester United, who will be without captain Wayne Rooney, will play host to West Ham United, looking to keep tabs on the leaders, while fourth Arsenal take on Sunderland at Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea, who played solid in the 0-0 draw at Tottenham without success, will battle against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.
On Sunday, Liverpool will hope to keep its fabulous form under new manager Jurgen Klopp going, while piling on more unwelcoming pressure on Newcastle United and manager Steve McClaren.
