Premier League Preview: Week 3

Chelsea are missing from this week’s Premier League fixture list, as they go in search of another trophy against Atletico Madrid for the European Super Cup. Roberto Di Matteo’s men leave the Premier League in good health, having notched up three wins in three.

Defending champions Manchester City are set to welcome QPR to the Etihad Stadium, in a repeat of their dramatic meeting last season. Roberto Mancini’s side rescued a point at Anfield last time out, and are strong favourites at 1.18 to secure maximum points this weekend. With Sergio Aguero ruled out through injury, his fellow Argentine Carlos Tevez is a good bet at 3.50 to open the scoring.

Early pace-setters Swansea hope to continue their excellent start to the season, as they host Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium. The Swans’ have scored eight goals and are yet to concede, they are at 2.20 to register a third win on the bounce.

After a late flurry of transfer activity, Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping to secure his first win in charge of Tottenham, as Norwich visit White Hart Lane. Spurs’ surrendered their lead to a late goal from West Brom last weekend, they are at 1.38 to go one better.

In the pick of the weekend action, Arsenal travel to Anfield as they look to snatch their first win, and goal, of the season against Liverpool. The Robin Van Persie jibes continue to haunt Arsene Wenger, but the French tactician will be hopeful of finally ending their barren run in front of goal and are at 1.40 to score at any time.

The aforementioned Van Persie is likely to lead the Manchester United front-line in the absence of Wayne Rooney, as the Red Devils’ take on newly promoted Southampton. United grabbed their first win of the season against Fulham last weekend, but were made to work hard for it in a 3-2 win. They’re at 1.50 to make it back-to-back wins.
