England’s Premier League provides the bulk of the entertainment this weekend with a top-of-the-table clash while several big guns meet elsewhere around the continent.
It’s one versus two in the Premiership on Sunday in a huge encounter. The Blues have a fine record against the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge, unbeaten by their rivals in their past 10 matches at the venue. Both sides won 4-2 in the league last weekend, while this fixture ended 3-3 last term, so this game promises plenty of goals and with Chelsea having the opportunity to open up a gap at the top, there’s plenty on the line.
The Merseyside derby is the perfect precursor to Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash, with David Moyes hoping to improve on his largely unimpressive record in these fixtures. The Toffees are sitting up in fourth on the table in comparison to the Reds’ lowly position of 12th, but they have claimed seven points in their past three games.
The two Dutch giants resume their rivalry on Sunday at De Kuip Stadion, with both sides currently off the pace in the title hunt after indifferent starts to the campaign. Ajax were boosted by their win over Manchester City in midweek with Siem de Jong scoring a cracking goal along the way. Lex Immers has been in prolific scoring form for Feyenoord.
The Bavarians have been perfect so far this campaign claiming a record-breaking eight wins from eight matches. This weekend they play host to the always dangerous Leverkusen who are currently sitting sixth. Bayern secured a 1-0 win in the Uefa Champions League in midweek thanks to Thomas Muller’s penalty and will look to continue their fine form, but Leverkusen won’t be easy.
It’s second versus third in Ligue 1 on Sunday, but Marseille have slumped of late, failing to win in their past three league games so the timing of this clash isn’t ideal for them. Alain-Pierre Gignac and Bafetimbi Gomis are the two players in form in attack and likely to get on the scoresheet in a match which means alot with PSG out on top.
