Five intriguing Premier League games to watch out for this weekend

As we get over hump day and look ahead to the weekend it’s time to see what the Premier League has on offer with the second half of September being upon us.

We’re still in the very early stages of the season and we’ve barely even had enough games to know how everything is going to shape up – and that goes for the top of the table as well as the bottom.

With that being said, there are definitely a few matches that jump out at us this week as potential show-stealers.

Wolves vs Brentford

Wolverhampton Wanderers finally got the reward they so richly deserved for their improved style of play last weekend with a win over Watford, whereas Brentford narrowly fell to their first defeat of the season. Together, we’re expecting to see the kind of encounter that brings fans back to the original roots of Premier League excitement with end-to-end excitement from pillar to post.

Aston Villa vs Everton

It’s two of the oldest clubs in English football squaring off for what feels like the 600th time – what’s not to love?
This Everton side is thriving under the guidance of Rafa Benitez which is a sentence that very few would’ve expected to hear just a few months ago. On the flip side, Aston Villa haven’t quite been able to live up to the hype created by a squad that’s absolutely stacked full of talent.

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Liverpool and Crystal Palace always seem to step up when they play each other and even though Patrick Vieira hasn’t blown everyone away thus far, the win over Tottenham definitely served as quite the statement.

The Reds are title contenders and Palace fans finally have an exciting young team to get behind – what could possibly go wrong?

West Ham vs Manchester United

Nobody really knows whether or not West Ham United will be able to sustain their consistency in the Premier League alongside the Europa League but this weekend, we’re going to get a pretty good idea of what to expect.

They’ll be hosting Manchester United at the London Stadium who themselves are out for blood after a disappointing defeat at the hands of Young Boys on Tuesday.

Tottenham vs Chelsea

There’s every chance this could turn out to be a dull affair but we’re choosing to look on the bright side of life. Spurs, despite being unattractive to watch at times, know how to get results against the big boys and there’s always a bit of extra spice involved when they take on Chelsea.

The Blues, meanwhile, are arguably the frontrunners in the race for the Premier League crown.
