Premier League Preview: Gameweek 13

Liverpool face Chelsea in the big game of the week as Top 2 face newly promoted sides.

The only place to start this weekend is with Chelsea’s trip to Anfield in the late Saturday game. Since the return of Eden Hazard Chelsea have found the rhythm that took them to the Premier League title and Jurgen Klopp will have to find a solution to Liverpool’s defensive frailties quickly if they are to get a result this weekend. Whilst a strong defensive display may be a rarity for Liverpool, Antonio Conte will be very aware of the significant attacking threat they pose when the fearsome four of Mane, Salah, Firmino and Coutinho are all fit and firing.

Man Utd host Brighton in a game that Mourinho will be expecting to win and Romelu Lukaku will be looking at to return to goalscoring form and manager-less West Brom visit Wembley to take on Spurs who will be buoyed by their victory in Germany on Tuesday.

The Sunday evening game sees leaders Man City head to Huddersfield where most would expect them to extend their winning run in the league to 11 games. Arsenal, who have a habit of following up a fantastic performance with a terrible one, play an in-form Burnley side who could move up to 4th with a win.

The big game towards the bottom end of the table sees Swansea and Bournemouth go head to head. Back to back wins for Eddie Howe’s side has taken them away from immediate trouble but a victory this weekend would push them comfortably away from the drop zone going into the December Schedule. Swansea are without a win in their last 4 and desperately need to pick up points before teams around them find some form.

Crystal Palace vs Stoke, Southampton vs Everton and Newcastle vs Watford complete this weekend’s round of games.
