Premier League Previews For Matchday Ten

October 26, 2018, Premier League

Liverpool take on Cardiff City. They could top the table with a win and put some pressure on City who face Spurs on Monday night. Can they keep up their unbeaten run? Arsenal top the last four form guide in the Premier League. They take on Crystal Palace and will look to make it 5 wins from their last 5 Premier League games.

Brighton v Wolves (Saturday, 15:00)

The Manager of the Month curse struck again last week, with Wolves losing 2-0 at home to Watford. That result might tempt Nuno Espirito Santo to change his starting XI for the first time this season. If he does, expect super-sub Adama Traore to start and cause Brighton a few problems.

Fulham v Bournemouth (Saturday, 15:00)

A combined total of 64 goals have been scored in the 18 games involving Fulham and Bournemouth in 2018-19, so this has the potential to be one of the most open games of the season so far. The key battle will be between Bournemouth’s in-form strikers, Callum Wilson and Josh King, and Fulham’s leaky defence.

Liverpool v Cardiff (Saturday, 15:00)

The biggest clash of styles this weekend comes at Anfield. Liverpool have been at their free-flowing best at times this season but they’re likely to come up against a backs-to-the-wall Cardiff side who would be delighted to escape with a draw.

Southampton v Newcastle (Saturday, 15:00)

With one win and just 12 goals between them this season, Southampton v Newcastle doesn’t scream a classic. There’s a lot of pressure on these sides to get more points on the board, so expect a tight game. Saints’ top scorer Danny Ings will be the one to watch in this one.

Watford v Huddersfield (Saturday, 15:00)

Early-season surprise package Watford got back on track with a win over Wolves last week, while Huddersfield’s winless start continued against Liverpool. Roberto Pereyra was on form on Saturday and will be the main man again here for the hosts.

Leicester v West Ham (Saturday, 17:30)

On their day, Leicester and West Ham can be two of the league’s most entertaining teams, but those days seem to come far too infrequently. The usual suspects, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic, will be key for their sides on Saturday.

Burnley v Chelsea (Sunday, 13:30)

This should be one of the weekend’s most interesting matches. Chelsea remain unbeaten this season but they won’t find it easy against a Burnley side who will be looking to make amends for their 5-0 hammering at Manchester City.

Crystal Palace v Arsenal (Sunday, 13:30)

Just 16 goals have been scored in the nine league games involving Crystal Palace this season, compared to 33 in matches involving Arsenal. The key battle here will be between the Gunners’ in-form attackers and Palace’s sturdy defence.

Manchester United v Everton (Sunday, 16:00)

Everton are back on track with three wins out of three, while Manchester United are getting more and more inconsistent by the match. Anthony Martial has emerged as one of United’s key players in recent matches, so expect him to have a big say in Sunday’s game.

Tottenham v Manchester City (Monday, 20:00)

The only ‘Big Six’ meeting of the weekend sees much-improved Tottenham host table-topping Manchester City. This has the potential to have a flurry of goals, but then we could also see two of the league’s most expansive sides cancel each other out. Whatever happens, both defences will need to be at their very best.
