Premier League Fixtures For Week 13: Nov 21-23
LONDON, Sporting Alert – English Premier League fixtures, live TV channels and broadcasting streaming networks for the list of matches taking place in Week 13.
The action gets underway with an early kick-off, which will see Watford playing hosts to Manchester United at Vicarage Road.
The Red Devils, who are fourth in the Premier League standings, will be without six players, including captain and leading striker Wayne Rooney for this clash.
Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed that Rooney, Anthony Martial, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini are all injured or ill, while Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw continues to recover from surgeries.
“I think that everybody knows Michael Carrick and Anthony Martial are injured, but also injured is Fellaini,” van Gaal said at his press conference.
“That’s a surprise because I thought he was recovered after the international break, but still he is injured. And that’s a big blow because Rooney is ill, so we have a big problem, I think.”
After 12 games so far this season, Manchester United sit behind Manchester City, Arsenal and Leicester City in the EPL standings with 24 points, while Watford sit at 11th place on 16 points.
The big clash of the weekend, though, will come from the Etihad Stadium where leaders Manchester City will take on Liverpool.
The Citizens could have striker Sergio Aguero back from injury, but playmaker David Silva remains on the sidelines with an ankle problem.
“Sergio [Aguero] is fit – he’s ready to come back,” City boss Manuel Pellegrini told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Friday.
“David [Silva] continues with some small sprain in his ankle so it’s a risk for him to play. Unfortunately also, Samir Nasri is injured.
“Wilfried Bony and Vincent Kompany are also injured.
“One of the merits of this team is not just to depend on one player but of course our team is better with Sergio.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool could also have striker Daniel Sturridge back against Manchester City after he returned to full training this week.
The England international had been out with a knee injury that forced him to miss the Reds’ last seven games, but could feature against his former club.
Second-place Arsenal, in the meantime, will look the keep the pressure on Manchester City with a win at West Bromwich Albion.
Elsewhere, Chelsea host Norwich, Everton and Aston Villa will do battle, Newcastle will look to stop Leicester City good form, while Southampton host Stoke City at St. James’ Park.
