Weekend Football Preview

The football continues non-stop.

Premier League MW 6

Fulham vs. Watford

Fulham were comprehensively beaten by City last week while Watford narrowly lost to United, both teams will look to bounce back with a win an exciting London Derby. Fulham sit 15th while Watford sit 4th. Fulham play an exciting brand of football but are poor at the back while Watford have been brilliant all over the pitch. This should be an exciting game and based on current form Watford could notch another win. 

Burnley vs. Bournemouth

Burnley sit bottom of the league with no wins this season, last weekend was also poor although they only lost by one goal to Wolves. Bournemouth have had a brilliant start to the season as they sit 5th, they beat Leicester by four goals to two last weekend. At the moment Bournemouth should be favourites to add another win to their season. 

Cardiff City vs. Man City 

Cardiff have had a shaky start to the season not having won a game and having been thrashed by Chelsea away last weekend. Things do not get easier for them this weekend as City visit Wales. Man City have returned to winning ways in recent weeks when it comes to he Premier League but suffered their first defeat of the season midweek to Lyon. Cardiff have played well in their games but the gulf in class has been apparent and while it would be great if they got a point or more against City the most likely scenario is that it should be another win for Man City. 

Crystal Palace vs. Newcastle

Crystal Palace returned to winning ways last weekend with a win away at Huddersfield the win moved them to 12th in the league. Newcastle have been poor in the last games and have not won a single match this season. Their start has been a tough one and this should be the type of game in which they start gaining points. A tough game to call which could go either way.

Leicester vs. Huddersfield

Leicester were thrashed lat weekend while Huddersfield narrowly lost to Palace. Leicester have still managed to win a couple of games and sit 11th while Huddersfield are 18th. This should be a cagey game but Huddersfield could win away at the weekend. 

Liverpool vs. Southampton

Liverpool have stormed to a winning start this season while receiving all the plaudits, but sitting second in the table. They beat PSG midweek in the Champions League and should be raring to go at Anfield again. Southampton sit 13th in the table and have played well in recent weeks although they drew against Brighton last weekend due to a self imploding second half. A cagey game but Liverpool should make it 6 out of 6.

Man United vs. Wolverhampton

United have bounced back with two wins since their defeat to Spurs, they now sit 8th in the table. Wolves have also begun to climb the table at a slow pace and sit 9th. A win for Wolves would move them above United on points. It is a case of conservative against attacking football and it would be great if Wolves could beat United. A cagey game but one to watch. 

Brighton vs. Tottenham

Brighton fought back to draw last weekend and sit 14th in the table, while Tottenham made it three defeats in a row midweek and sit 6th. Brighton away is always a tough fixture and having already beaten United Brighton should be encouraged to take another top 6 scalp. Tottenham on the other hand will be hoping to bounce back with a win. A close game that Brighton could win. 

Arsenal vs. Everton

In what is probably the showpiece fixture of the weekend a high flying Arsenal take on an Everton side that lost their first game of the season last weekend. Arsenal sit 7th after three wins in three while Everton are 10th. Arsenal won midweek in the Europa League and having found their scoring boots in recent games this could be another Arsenal win although it will be a close game in which they will concede.

La Liga MW 5

La Liga returns this weekend with Atletico traveling to Getafe having won midweek in Monaco. Real Madrid entertain Espanyol having thrashed Roma in the Champions League while Barcelona welcome Girona. It should be comfortable wins for Barcelona and Real Madrid while Atletico should also get a win of their own. 

Serie MW 5

Another interesting weekend of Italian football as Inter travel to Sampdoria having won against Tottenham in their Champions League return. Napoli travel to Torino in a difficult game of football. Roma travel to Bologna, while Juventus travel to Frosinone. Milan entertain Atlanta at the San Siro. Cagey games across the board with results that could go either way although Juventus should win. 

Bundesliga MW 4

Hertha Berlin play Monchengladbach at home, Hoffenheim play Dortmund at home, Schalke play Bayern at home, Frankfurt play Leipzig at home, while Leverkusen entertain Mainz. It’s safe to say that German football is the most exciting of the weekend with tough fixtures all over the place. 

Ligue MW 6

Monaco play Nimes at home, PSG travel to Rennes, and Lyon play Marseille in the standout fixture. Easy wins expected for Monaco, and PSG while Lyon should be buoyed by their win in Manchester midweek.
