Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur: Match Preview
This season’s first edition of the north London derby saw Spurs defeat the Gunners by a score of 2-1 in front of 36,274 witnesses at White Hart Lane.
Sunday’s derby comes at a horrid time for Arsenal, who have lost their last two matches versus AC Milan (4-0) and Sunderland (2-0).
On the other side of the touchline, Harry Redknapp’s side are coming off a 5-0 win over Newcastle and a 0-0 draw versus Stevenage in the FA Cup.
Players to Watch
Once again, Robin van Persie is the player to watch for the Gunners. RVP, who has scored a Premier League leading 22 goals in 2011-12, has netted four goals in last five starts against Spurs.
For Spurs, on-loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor is surely the danger man. The former Togo international is coming off a 10 out of 10 match performance versus Newcastle United in which he bagged one goal and four assists.
An cracking north London derby, 3-2 Spurs.
Norwich City v Manchester United: Match Preview
Manchester United travel to Carrow Road to take on Premier League newcomers Norwich City on Sunday.
United are second in the table, while Norwich’s impressive debut campaign has them sitting in eighth place.
Norwich have secured 10 points in their last five games, while the Red Devils have tallied 13 out of a possible 15.
With both United and Norwich on top form, something’s got to give on Sunday.
Players to Watch
With Wayne Rooney doubtful due to a throat infection, Javier “El Chicharito” Hernandez is the danger man for the Red Devils.
The Mexican international has scored in each of his last four appearances in all competitions for United.
Can he make it five-for-five on Sunday? Yes.
Wales international Steve Morison, who has netted eight goals and four assists in 24 Premier League appearances in 2011-12, is the man to watch for the Canaries.
The Welshman is a handful in the air and could give United’s back four a number of problems.
United win, 2-0 Red Devils.
Stoke City v Swansea City: Match Preview
Brendan Rodgers and Swansea City are scheduled to take on Tony Pulis and Stoke at Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Stoke have notched just one point in their last five Premier League games, while Swansea have recorded seven points out of a possible 15.
Players to Watch
Swansea striker Danny Graham has had a prolific debut season for the Swans, having tallied 10 goals and one assist in 23 Premier League games in 2011-12.
Expect Graham to give the Potters defence some problems on Sunday.
For Stoke, Jonathan Walters, who has already started 25 league games this season, is the main man.
Will Walters’ superb hold up play lead to a goal on Sunday? We shall see.
A point for each side is a fair result, 1-1 draw.
