Premier League MW 11
Bournemouth vs. Man United
Man United have been in good form in recent weeks as they travel to Bournemouth looking to make it 4 wins in a row. United are 7th while Bournemouth are 9th, Bournemouth have not won in 4 weeks as they look to get a home win against a beatable United side. United tend to struggle against the smaller teams and so this should be an interesting fixture.
Arsenal vs. Wolverhampton
5th placed Arsenal take on 12th placed Wolves as the gunners look to lift the gloom at the Emirates. These teams lost during the week against Liverpool, and Villa in the Carabao Cup but those teams were fairly rotated. Arsenal are in some turmoil at the moment and Wolves always cause problems against the top 6 sides and so I have a feeling Wolves will add to their wins against top teams.
Aston Villa vs. Liverpool
League leaders Liverpool visit London to play 15th placed Villa who have had an inconsistent start to the league this season. Liverpool managed once again to win their game against Arsenal while Villa beat Wolves but had lost last weekend in the league to City. This should be a tough game for Liverpool but with most of the squad rested this should be a win for the Reds.
Brighton vs. Norwich
14th placed Brighton take on 19th placed Norwich who are desperate for a win. Brighton are strong at home but both teams have had problems and if Norwich want to survive they need to start winning games soon. This fixture could go either way.
Man City vs. Southampton
2nd placed Man City play Southampton for the 2nd game in a row having beaten them in the Carabao Cup during the week. Southampton are 18th and their most important goal for this game is to keep the scoreline below 5 goals due to their thrashing last weekend. Easy win for City.
Sheffield United vs. Burnley
Sheffield United sit 8th as they entertain Burnley who are 13th as Sheffield look to maintain their momentum. Sheffield have been doing well this season while Burnley have struggled with consistency and this should be a tough away trip. This game could easily be a draw with not many goals expected as both teams are defensive.
West Ham vs. Newcastle
10th placed West Ham search for their first win in four as they welcome 17th placed Newcastle who have also not won in 3 weeks. West Ham were doing well but have fallen off in recent weeks and so Newcastle are good opponents to gain momentum from while Newcastle will hope they can have some luck in London.
Crystal Palace vs. Leicester
6th placed Palace welcome 3rd placed Leicester in a top 6 clash as Leicester look to follow their big win against Southampton by maintaining their position in the top four. Palace have done extremely well but should begin to fall off as the season goes on and so while this game could be tough for both teams Leicester should edge this game.
Everton vs. Tottenham
Tottenham who sit 11th travel to 16th placed Everton as both these teams are struggling to patch form together. Tottenham have not won in three weeks while Everton have lost four of their last five games. Tottenham on paper should win this game but Everton are good opposition and so this should be an interesting game to keep an eye on.
La Liga MW 12
Barcelona travel to Levante, Atletico play Sevilla, Real Madrid entertain Real Betis. Tough games for all team involved as things begin to heat up in La Liga. Real Madrid have been in good form recently while Atletico need to start picking up some good form.
Serie A MW 11
Roma take on Napoli, Inter travel to Bologna, Torino take on Juventus in a derby, Atalanta take on Cagliari, and Milan play Lazio. Tough fixtures for all teams involved as Serie A could see a shake up at the top this weekend.
Bundesliga MW 10
Bayer take on Monchengladbach, Frankfurt welcome Bayern, Leipzig welcome Mainz, and Dortmund take on Wolfsburg. Bundesliga is one of the most interesting leagues this season and it’s another tough weekend of games in Germany.
Ligue 1 MW 12
PSG travel to Dijon, Marseille take on Lille, Lyon travel to Toulouse, and Monaco play St.Etienne. PSG are running away with Ligue 1 once again while Monaco are getting some good form in recent weeks.
