EPL Match Week 3: Saturday Matches Previews and Times

The weekend is set for the series of third games for the EPL clubs this season. The game of the week appears to be the one coming between Liverpool and Arsenal which will be featured later here. But to start with, let us have some previews on the saturday games and know where each team stands.

Bournemouth vs Manchester City (12:30 pm)

The weekend games will start with this fixture at Dean Court. Bournemouth, one of the five teams yet to have a point in this season EPL are set to face another challenge as they take on a more attacking Manchester City side. Manchester City on the other hand were a bit unfortunate in their last match against Everton where they had 65% of the possession, created about 19 chances but have to settle for a draw. Manchester City has a huge upper hand in this fixture as they have won all their last 4 meetings against Bournemouth with a cumulative of 15 goals to 1. So, Bournemouth who is struggling to regain composure might again bow to another defeat on saturday.

Crystal palace vs Swansea (3:00pm) 

This fixture appears to be one of the 5 games coming up at the same time this Saturday. Both teams are yet to win a game since the start of the season with Crystal Palace losing their last game to Liverpool and Swansea losing heavily to the in-form Manchester United. Swansea won this fixture home and away last season in a 12 goal thriller, suggesting both teams have a weak defence that seem not to have been resolved this season. The floor seems open for these two teams as their may be series of goals.

Manchester United Vs Leceister City (5:30 pm)

The drama of the day will come up as a late fixture at Old Trafford as Man.Utd is set to take on Leceister. United had a 100% start to the season and still keeping a clean sheet while being voracious in goal. The Jose Mourino side are hoping to have a hattrick start to the season before the international break. Leceister who has 3 points in two games are aiming to gain another point on Saturday as they want to go for the international break on a high. History appears to be in favour of United as they won all their 3 encounters last season against Leceister.  Leceister presently have an injury boost as Danny Drinkwater and Kelechi Iheanacho are back in action after minor injuries. The dreaded Vardy will also be in action for Leceister City. Their could be dramas at Old Trafford as Okazaki also appear to be in the best of forms recently. But all the same, a third win in 3 games looks likely for United.

Other fixture for the day :

Huddersfield vs. Southampton – 3pm

Watford vs. Brighton – 3pm

Newcastle vs. West Ham – 3pm

Stayed tuned for the Sunday previews.
