LONDON, Sporting Alert – Live football coverage continues on Saturday with six more Premier League games, as West Ham United and Leicester City will both be in action.
Manchester United kicked start Week 2 with a narrow 1-0 victory over Aston Villa to go top of the Premier League standings with six points, with Adnan Januzaj scoring the winner and Juan Mata producing an impressive display in midfield.
The coverage continues on Saturday, with the likes of West Ham United and Leicester City, who both scored impressive wins last weekend, go in search of their second victory of the campaign.
In fact, the pair are on the schedule to meet each other at Boleyn Ground and head into the battle full of confidence.
Slaven Bilic’s Hammers shot down the Gunners 2-0 at the Emirates last weekend with an impressive display, while Claudio Ranieri collected a 4-2 victory at home against Sunderland in his first competitive outing as the Leicester boss.
In the last corresponding meeting, West Ham picked up a 2-0 positive result with Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing netted the goals.
West Ham also enter this fixture having won seven of their previous eight home Premier League games against the Foxes.
The Hammers will also be looking to win back-to-back Premier League fixtures for the first time in 2015.
“It’s the first match away so I must think about every solution and then I’ll choose the best XI,” Ranieri said.
“We play away so maybe we can play with three at the back.
“West Ham made a fantastic result at Arsenal – better than us because who believed that Arsenal could lose the match – nobody.
“They made a fantastic performance, scored twice and got a clean sheet. I watched the match – it was outstanding. I’ll try to close the space and try to win the match.”
Meanwhile, NBC Sports’ live football action will see Southampton going up against Everton at St. Mary’s Stadium, Sunderland hosting Norwich at the Stadium of Light, Swansea City play Newcastle United at Liberty Stadium and Tottenham take on Stoke at White Hart Lane.
Lots of attention will be at Liberty to see if Swansea can turn out another impressive display like the one they put down against Chelsea in the 2-2 drawn over the weekend.
