English Premier League Matchweek 9 Preview

By  Umair Asif - 21 October 2016

After a tiring week, the deeds of misery haven’t yet settled for Man Utd as they will be up against Chelsea in a make or break fixture. The highlight fixture of Matchweek 9 in English Premier League will take place on Sunday and the outcome will be vital in shaping the face of the top flight. A lot has been said about this fixture but with all guns firing for Chelsea, and United having a frustrating run, even the odds are in favor of the blues.

Moreover, Pep Guardiola’s side is desperately searching for a win, whereas Tottenham will be eyeing to extend their unbeaten run. Liverpool and Arsenal do not want to miss out on the opportunity to make it intense at the top, while Everton will make sure to remain a worry for those contesting for a European spot.

All in all, it will be another exiting Matchweek in the English Premier League and here’s what each fixture of Matchweek 9 holds for us:

AFC Bournemouth v Spurs

Unbeaten in their first 8 fixtures, Spurs are definitely a tough opponent to face this time round. But, Bournemouth are having a decent season so far but are unlikely to put a dent on Spurs unbeaten run.

Arsenal v Middlesbrough

The Gunners are unlikely to lose it, especially against a side they have demolished at quite a few occasions, scoring 7 once. 

Burnley v Everton

It’s all in favor of Everton. The Merseyside team is unbeaten in their last 11 fixtures against newly promoted side and has lost just once this season. 

Hull v Stoke

Stoke has picked it up late but with Joe Allen scoring goals, the blessings are raining. However, Hull City are in search of the long lost form they were at the start of the tournament.

Leicester v Crystal Palace

With Leicester’s poor run in the Premier League and Eagles’ habit of hunting the defending champions, the expected outcome is not in favor of the Foxes.

Swansea v Watford

The Hornets are flying high while the Swans are lurking back in the relegation zone. However, the unpredictability of the league might result in something unexpected.

West Ham v Sunderland

David Moyes is yet to lose against the hammers, but yet to win a match as Sunderland’s manager. It will be a great contest though as a win means a lot for both the sides.

Liverpool v West Brom

With Nacer Chadli in supreme form, West Brom is likely to secure an away point against Liverpool. But the Merseyside team is in no mood to lose any more points after a frustrating draw against Man Utd.

Man City v Southampton

City won 4 consecutive matches against Saints before losing 4-2 last season. However, a win is all that matters for Man City to retain the top spot.

Chelsea v Man Utd

This tie will see off Super Sunday with both the sides aiming to end on a high note. However, Man Utd has not succeeded in bragging all the three points from Chelsea in the last seven showdowns.
