Premier League Football Weekend Preview – 1st and 2nd September

TR Updated

6 goals in 44 appearances backs the managers judgement.The final week of the transfer window may have dominated the headlines over the last few days, but it mustn't be forgotten that there is some crucial matches to be played this weekend.

If the first two weekends are anything to go by, we are in for a treat too. More so than ever, it appears that anyone can beat anyone in this league. There is some top quality football being played too with plenty of new signings announcing themselves to English football.

Beginning the action this weekend is an intriguing London Derby between West Ham United and Fulham. Likely to be competitive and evenly matched throughout, both teams will fancy their chances of winning this one.

The fact that Andy Carroll could make his debut for West Ham makes this one all the more fascinating too. Fulham on the other hand will be looking to find the form that saw them hammer Norwich City on the opening day. There should be goals in this one.

After this contest at Upton Park, there are four 3pm kick-offs with Swansea City v Sunderland perhaps the most fascinating. The Welsh side have got off to a flying start of course, while Sunderland will be boosted by the arrivals of Steven Fletcher and Adam Johnson.

Basically, both teams will be going for the win. They are confident in their ability and it should be an entertaining contest as a result. Swansea will certainly attack from the off and with their new signings, so should the Black Cats.

Elsewhere on Saturday afternoon, Andre Villas-Boas is looking to secure Tottenham's first victory of the season over Norwich, West Brom and Everton – two teams with good starts under their belts – meet at the Hawthorns and Wigan and Stoke go head to head.

You then have the battle of the big spenders from the last year or so – Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers. In a repeat of the fixture that formed a central part to a dramatic final day last season, this should be another eye-catching battle.

Moving on to Sunday, there are three matches to look forward to. First of all, Liverpool and Arsenal go head to head at Anfield. Neither team have a win under their belts as yet – Arsenal haven't even got a goal – and defeat here would be a real blow for both sides. The pressure is on.

Rather bizarrely, there are then two 4pm kick-offs, with Newcastle and Aston Villa the first one to cast an eye over. Newcastle are strong at home of course and their fans will be in expectant mood against an Aston Villa side that has struggled under Paul Lambert so far.

You never quite know what to expect in this league though, so if Villa get their act together, they could secure a positive result.

The same can be said for Southampton, who host Manchester United in the final game of the weekend. The Saints managed to push Manchester City all the way on the opening weekend, but lost in the end. They will hope to go one better against City's Manchester rivals.

This is certainly the type of game they are in the top flight for and Nigel Adkins men will want a positive performance at least. As for United, a routine victory would be just what Sir Alex Ferguson needs after a dramatic opening couple of weeks.

Just to note, Chelsea and Reading are not in action. They completed their fixture on the 22nd August due to Chelsea's involvement in the Super Cup on Friday evening.
