Gameweek 12 Preview

After a goal shy International break, the Premier League returns to action this weekend. We start with the game of the weekend as Arsenal host North London rivals Tottenham.

Spurs have dominated the Derby in recent years with Arsenal failing to record a league win over their rivals since a 1-0 away win in March 2014. An Arsenal win would see them move into the top four (at least temporarily), just a point behind third placed Tottenham, however defeat could leave them six points of fourth and a huge 15 points off of leaders Man City by the end of the weekend.

Elsewhere Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool face Newcastle (H), West Brom (A) and Southampton (H), respectively as they look to keep the pace with Man City who travel to a Leicester side who have looked rejuvenated since the arrival of Claude Puel.

At the opposite end of the table Crystal Palace host Everton with both sides struggling for both goals and points having already switched managers. Meanwhile struggling Swansea face a difficult trip (both in football and geographical terms) to Burnley who are currently sitting comfortably in 7th.  West Ham fans will get their first glimpse of David Moyes’ side when they make the short journey to Watford on Sunday.

Making up the fixture list are Bournemouth who face Huddersfield (H) and Brighton who play Stoke (H).
