Premier League Matchweek 6 Preview

By  Football Pulp - 9 September 2016

English Premier League is back with Matchweek 6, and a full round of matches will be played this weekend. Jose Mourinho will be under limelight after losing 2 consecutive ties in the league and will be up against the defending champions, Leicester. Also, Arsene Wenger will be celebrating his 18th anniversary at Arsenal, aiming to seal the night with a win against their London rivals, Chelsea. Pep Guardiola will be hoping to equalize Carlo Ancelloti’s record of 6 consecutive wins, offloading Swansea once again in the week. Everton are flying high while Tottenham have proven to be resilient and tough opponents so far in the league. You can’t afford to miss a bit of action from Matchweek 6 in the EPL and here’s what every fixture holds for you:

Man Utd v Leicester City

After three successive defeats in all competitions, Man Utd is back on their winning ways with a win over Northampton United in EFL Cup. However, the tie against the defending champions, Leicester, won’t be an easy go for Jose Mourinho, but the Red Devils have netted 33 goals against the champions in the last 14 games.

AFC Bournemouth v Everton

Everton is flying high with 4 successive wins in the premier league and one more win will make it 5 out of 6. The last time this happened, the Merseyside team went on to clinch the title. Bournemouth is no danger for Ronald Koeman’s men, who are demolishing every side coming in their way.

Liverpool v Hull City

Jurgen Klopp will be aiming to continue the winning run with a win over Hull City. History suggests that Liverpool has never lost to the newly promoted side in all competitions. Hull had an impressive start but failed to capitalize at the biggest arenas.

Middlesbrough v Spurs

Spurs have never lost to a newly promoted side since April 2012, and are enjoying an unbeaten run this season, aiming to increase it further. The London side has the most impressive defensive record in the premier league so far.

Stoke City v West Brom

Stoke is sitting at the very end of the table and has not managed to win against West Brom in their last three meetings. The current form of Porters hints towards another loss but a win can boost the entire squad and bring them back.

Sunderland v Crystal Palace

The tie known for having late winners has majority of the goals scored after 80th minute. It has been a disastrous season so far for Black Cats, and David Moyes will be more than happy with a win. 

Swansea City v Man City

A win over Swansea City will make it 6 in a row for Pep Guardiola and he will only be the second manager in the Premier League after Ancelloti to achieve this landmark. Man City defeated Swans in the EFL Cup in the midweek and the same is expected at this weekend as well.

Arsenal v Chelsea

Chelsea is the only side to win four matches at Emirate, more than any other Premier League side, and this London derby will be the first meeting between Conte and Wenger. With both sides lacking strong defense, a goal fest is expected at Emirates.

West Ham v Southampton

With 1 win out of their last 5 EPL matches, the Hammers are expected to put up a good show against the Saints. It’s still uncertain to predict who’s going to emerge on top in this bottom-of-the-table clash. Antonio is the leading goal scorer in the league and he will be the key man for Hammers.

Burnley v Watford

The first ever top flight meeting between the two sides is going to be big but Watford has the upper hand after their splendid show against Man Utd last week.
