Sat 12:45 West Ham v Man City
  A top of the table clash between fourth-placed West Ham and second-placed City. The Hammers lie just four points below their counterparts and have emerged as something of a surprise in the early stages of the campaign. Results weren't overly impressive during their opening fixtures but the 3-1 win at Turf Moor made it three wins from the last four. Despite narrowly losing at Old Trafford, they've comfortably beaten Liverpool along the way so it can't be said that they've not won against any of the bigger clubs. Visitors Man City have now won three top flight games on the bounce but still lag five points behind league leaders Chelsea. They haven't fared so well in Europe and are still searching for their first Champions League win this season. This week they were two goals to the good in Moscow only to let CSKA back into the game midway through the second half and concede a late penalty equaliser. Pellegrini blamed the cold but they'll welcome the return to balmy London. The Hammers have shown themselve no tighter at the back than City's previous opponents Spurs and Aguero is likely to once again prove the difference.
Away Win 1-2
Sat 15:00 Liverpool v Hull
  The Reds are fifth in the table thanks to successive victories over West Brom at Anfield and QPR at Loftus Road. Neither result was comprehensive and the midweek defeat at home to Real Madrid in the Champions League shows how far Liverpoool are behind the top clubs. Since that defeat many comparisons have been made since they were last in the latter stages of the competition and none have been favourable. Mario Balotelli drew much criticism from many including the manager, not only for his lack of performance on the pitch, but also for swapping shirts at half-time with Madrid's Pepe. Rodgers replaced Balotelli with Sterling up top in the second half but has few options with Sturridge still out with a calf problem. They host a mid-table Hull side with only two wins to their name this season, away at Loftus Road and at home to Palace so not against the best sides. That said they were ahead at the Emirates last weekend only to let Arsenal back in at the death for a share of the spoils. The Tigers have drawn half their games this season and are without Dawson plus both first and second choice keepers leaving Jakupovic to deputise. Struggling to pick between these two; Liverpool have been riding their luck whilst Hull probably haven't got their just desserts. The draw beckons!
Draw 1-1
  Southampton v Stoke
  The Saints strolled to their fifth win in six games at home to Sunderland and what a win it was. They put a massive eight goals past a poor Black Cats side and maintain third spot, three points above fourth-placed West Ham and just a point behind City. Usually a club is cursed after receiving manager and player of the month but Koeman and Pelle proved the pundits wrong, the latter grabbing a brace to take his goals tally to seven in all competitions this season. They host a mid-table Stoke side that notched their third victory of the season with a 2-1 win over Swansea. The game was marred by accusations of diving with Moses going down easily for the Potters' equalising penalty. Monk branded Moses a cheat whilst Hughes opted to criticise Monk's comments rather than address the real issue. Stoke have proved they can win on the road, as they did at the Etihad, but the Saints look too strong on current form.
Home Win 2-1
  Sunderland v Arsenal
  Mention Sunderland and the first thought has to be their 8-goal thrashing at Southampton last weekend. It was the sort of performance that was poor in every department from own goals and woeful defending to a lack of any sort of penetration at the other end of the pitch. It seemed that Poyet wanted to distance himself from such an inept display and some have commented that this staggering defeat could set the Mackems back for weeks to come. They're already flirting with relegation with just a point separating them from the bottom three. The shock was that this result came off the back of their first win of the season, a 3-1 victory over Stoke at the Stadium of Light. Without being over-optimistic opponents Arsenal will be scenting blood on their trip to Wearside. However the Gunners have just two wins in the top flight having drawn five of their other six games. Expectations are high amongst the Arsenal fans and Saturday's game with Hull was another case in point with an injury-time goal from Danny Welbeck only enough to rescue a point. They won in Belgium this week after going behind which demonstrated a level of resilience but improvements are expected. Wilshere is suspended and injuries include Ozil, Walcott, Debuchy and Koscielny. Regardless of player availability, Arsenal should be wiping the floor with this Sunderland side.
Away Win 0-2
  West Brom v Crystal Palace
  Not quite sure what you're going to get from Palace this season in terms of results but the one thing they do give is plenty of effort and team spirit. Even at home to Chelsea they looked to be comfortably beaten until the Eagles staged a late consolation goal to give the Blues a scare in injury time. They might've won only twice this season but their 3-2 victory at Goodison was particularly evident of their approach this season. They travel to the Hawthorns this weekend but will be without Damien Delaney who saw red against Chelsea and is suspended. We backed hosts West Brom to beat United last weekend and to be fair they weren't far away despite Van Gaal's claims that it was United's best performance of the season to date. The Baggies have finally got it together under new manager Irvine despite losing at Anfield recently, the first of two difficult games following victories over Tottenham and Burnley. Berahino continues to offer West Brom's most potent goal threat ably supported by Sessegnon. Irvine has few injury concerns and the home side should come out on top in a tight encounter.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 17:30 Swansea v Leicester
  Following an opening sequence of three successive victories, Swansea have taken just a couple of points from the last five fixtures. Admittedly they've faced difficult opponents in Chelsea and Southampton and the most recent trip to Stoke but draws against Sunderland and Newcastle really represent dropped points. Monk chose to criticise Moses's dive at the Britannia but opinion is divided and some would argue against Shawcross being penalised for Swansea's opening penalty. Regardless the Swans are still in the top half of the table albeit by virtue of a single point. They host a Leicester side just two points adrift and fresh from defeat at St James's Park. The Foxes have only taken a point from three games since beating United 5-3 at the King Power Stadium, coming off worse at Palace and drawing with Burnley. They should've probably taken more from the match at Newcastle but failed to make the most of their chances. This could be a case of the same again with the home side looking to profit.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 13:30 Burnley v Everton
  With Newcastle winning last weekend at home to Leicester, Burnley remain the only club in the top flight yet to register a victory after losing at home to West Ham. Along with Villa the Clarets have scored just four times this season and it's always going to be hard to climb the table if you're short on quality strikers which Burnley are. George Boyd scored the consolation against the Hammers but that defeat also saw the return of Danny Ings who netted 21 times in the Championship last season so there's still hope. They host an Everton side that put Villa to the sword at Goodison last weekend with a comfortable 3-goal victory. The signs looked good for the Toffees as Ross Barkley returned from injury, Leighton Baines set up two of the three goals with Lukaku scoring the other. There was much to admire from Everton and the return of key players to form as well as from injury could mark a turning point in what's been a disappointing start to the season. Mirallas and Stones are still big misses but if Everton can replicate their most recent performance, they should win at Turf Moor.
Away Win 0-2
  Tottenham v Newcastle
  Not surprisingly Tottenham lost at the Etihad last weekend but goals were always on the cards. The Spurs defence just couldn't handle Aguero's quality and Fazio's red card means he misses this match. Up front Soldado failed to get the better of Joe Hart, the keeper easily saving a poor penalty and too good for anything the Spaniard had to offer. It'll be interesting to see if Pochettino replaces him with either Adebayor or Kane. At the Lane Spurs have beaten both QPR and Southampton without conceding but were torn apart by Liverpool and narrowly lost to West Brom so a win over Newcastle isn't a foregone conclusion even though the Magpies still find themselves in relegation territory. That said, Newcastle claimed their first win of the season at St James's Park last weekend with a single-goal victory over Leicester. Obertan was the surprise scorer of the Magpies winner but there is still much work to be done by Pardew if they're to avoid a relegation battle for the remainder of the season. In his defence they've a list of injuries as long as your arm including Tiote and Williamson who both missed the win over the Foxes. Expect Spurs to bounce back and beat a Newcastle side struggling to get things right.
Home Win 2-0
Sun 16:00 Man Utd v Chelsea
  Three successive home victories has moved United up the table but they slipped from fourth to sixth after only managing to draw at the Hawthorns. Van Gaal lauded the United performance as their best of the season and whilst that may have proved true going forward they were sadly lacking at the back. Twice the Baggies led only to be pegged back each time by a United confident on the front foot. Their current position may yet to prove an inflated one with upcoming fixtures against Chelsea, City and Arsenal. The first of those opponents, Chelsea, are five points clear at the top of the table after taking 22 from 24 possible points this season. Only City at the Etihad have deprived them of a maximum and there's no way Old Trafford is currently as intimidating. Last weekend they did enough at Selhurst Park and for once Costa wasn't on the scoresheet after sustaining a knock whilst on international duty. The striker wasn't even named on the bench for the midweek win over Maribor but the suspicion is that Mourinho is saving him for the United game. Other injury doubts are Ramires and Schurrle whilst Azpilicueta is suspended. United's injury problems are easing but they haven't enough at the back to keep Chelsea out.
Away Win 2-3
Mon 20:00 QPR v Aston Villa
  Similarly to Swansea, Villa are another side guilty of starting the campaign ever so well only to stutter after early successes. Four straight defeats has seen them plunge into the bottom half of the table but they've faced difficult opponents in Arsenal, Chelsea, City and Everton. The worrying factor however is that they've not scored in those four matches and managed to concede a combined total of 11 goals. Prior to that sequence they'd conceded just the once and much of that surely has to do with the absence of Vlaar although the Dutch centre-half did play the full 90 at Goodison. They travel to Loftus Road where QPR must be considered easier opponents bearing in mind they're propping up the rest of the league. Rangers have lost 6 of 8 games this season, the most dramatic probably last weekend at home to Liverpool where three goals in injury time saw the game swing one way, then the other and back again. Two own goals from QPR centre-halves didn't help their cause but there was a positive; Chile striker Eduardo Vargas came on 11 minutes from the end to score a brace and impressing enough to see him possibly start on Monday night. Very difficult to predict how this'll go but if Villa can tighten up the back line as they did in the early games, they can nick it by the odd goal.
Away Win 0-1
