Weekend Football Preview


Premier League

Brighton vs. Wolverhampton

Brighton seek their third consecutive victory in the league while Wolves seek to return to winning ways against the Seagulls. Brighton are 12th while Wolves are 9th and while Wolves are tough competition for the Seagulls Brighton have proved that they can beat anyone at home. An interesting and tough game between the two teams.

Fulham vs. Bournemouth

Fulham were thrashed by Cardiff last weekend and seek to get out of the relegation zone while Bournemouth drew against Southampton and aim to bridge the gap between them and Tottenham. Fulham and Jokanovic really need a win to boost morale but Bournemouth have had a decent season and pose ample threat to the Cottagers. 

Liverpool vs. Cardiff City

Liverpool hope to sit at the top of the table with a win against Cardiff even though it might only be for a few days. Cardiff finally got their first win of the season but a trip to Anfield is always a tough task. Firmino, Salah, and Mane all scored midweek in the Champions League to get back into form and it could be a tough 90 minutes for the side from Wales. 

Southampton vs. Newcastle

Southampton drew last weekend and sit 16th in the table while Newcastle still seek their first win and are bottom of the table. Southampton are a decent opponent for Newcastle if they want to finally win a game but an away trip is a slightly tougher task. 

Watford vs. Huddersfield

Watford got back to winning ways against Wolves last weekend as they moved to 7th while Huddersfield lost to Liverpool and remain winless this season. Watford have had a decent season so far and Huddersfield might need to wait another week for their first win in the league. 

Leicester vs. West Ham

Leicester lost to Arsenal last weekend as they sit 11th in the table while West Ham lost to Tottenham and sit 14th in the league. The teams have had mixed seasons so far and this should be an interesting game as the teams hope to break into the top ten. 

Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal

Crystal Palace lost to Everton and sit 15th while Arsenal have been flying high as they sit 4th in the table. A tough trip to Selhurst Park for the Gunners but it should be another three points for Emery and his men.

Man United vs. Everton

United almost beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend and lost to Juventus mid week as they entertain Everton at Old Trafford. Everton have played well and sit 8th in the table as they try to add more misery to Mourinho. A tough game between the two teams. 

Tottenham vs. Man City 

5th vs. 1st as Spurs take on City at Wembley. Spurs have had a mixed season so far and they will have to wait until 2019 for their new stadium as City have been their usual self this season and look to inflict some damage to the London side.

La Liga MW 10

Atletico entertain Real Sociedad in a tough fixture while Sevilla welcome Huesca. The main fixture is the El Clasico the first in a very long time that will not have Messi or Ronaldo but it should be entertaining none the less. 

Serie MW 10

Juventus travel to Empoli, Milan welcome Sampdoria, and the standout fixtures are Napoli vs. AS Roma, and Lazio vs. Inter. An interesting weekend of Italian football awaits. 

Bundesliga MW 9

Bayern travel to Mainz, Dortmund play Hertha Berlin, and Leipzig play Schalke. Bayern aim to head back to the top while Dortmund look to remain there. 

Ligue MW 11

Lyon travel to Angers, Monaco welcome Dijon, and Marseille play PSG in the standout fixture in France. PSG remain the only team to not have dropped points in their league and Marseille are high on confidence, and interesting game to watch.
