EPL Match Week 3: Sunday Matches Previews And Times

Matchweek 3 Sunday matches will definitely be more dramatic than the Saturday matches as we have some tough and really testing fixtures for the day. Match points and results that will last a fortnight due to the coming international break. Here are the previews of the matches

   Chelsea vs Everton (1:30 pm)

Sunday matches will start early with this fixture. Everton is approaching this game coming from an away draw against a star studded Manchester City side. With their performance against City, they will definitely be a hard nut to crack for Chelsea. A little worry for the Tofees though, as Schneiderlin is suspended and Barkley out injured. Wayne Rooney will definitely pose a threat for the Blues as he scored for Everton in their last two games.  Chelsea will also be approaching this game on a high with a fantastic and well-compact win away against Tottenham. Marcos Alonso stole the day with a brace that gave Chelsea the upper hand. Chelsea will be coming to this game without their skipper Gary Cahill due to suspension and Hazard still remain a doubt though he played 75 minutes in the PL2 with the under 23 Chelsea side. But according to Conte, he wants him to recover fully before playing him. Fabregas will be back after the suspension and that makes it a plus for the blues in midfield. There could be one or two changes to the starting eleven against Tottenham with the inclusion of Fabregas and Pedro. With the inclusion of Fabregas, it is highly expected that Morata will have a great day. If we are to go by last season fixtures against this two, then we will give Chelsea a upper hand as they won home and away in a cumulative 8 goals to nil thriller.

 

Liverpool vs Arsenal ( 4:00pm)

The match of the day, and definitely the match of the week. The game at Anfield is going to be a battle and survival of the fittest. Arsenal is coming to this game on a low as they lost their previous match to Stoke City, raising few eye brows against Arsene Wenger.  Wenger definitely will be under pressure to avoid back to back defeat in the beginning of the season. A boost for  Arsenal though, is the return of Kolscieny after a three match suspension and a possible return for Alexis Sanchez as Arsene Wenger said the Gunners star is ready to play. On the other hand, Liverpool will be approaching this game with a win against Crystal Palace last time out. They will still be without Coutinho due to injury. Both teams appear to have shaky defense line and the game could be judged by whose attack clicked most as it seems there will be goal thrillers as it has always been in the fixture. A three-man defense as Arsene Wenger now plays could be a bit disastrous as they will be facing the trio of Sadio Mane, Firminho and Salah. Liverpool had a good record last season against the top six clubs as none of them defeat Liverpool both home and away. From last season’s fixture between these two teams Liverpool have a upper hand, as they won Arsenal home and away. Liverpool will be looking forward to increase Arsene Wenger’s  frustration. While Arsene wenger will be looking forward to avoid a back to back defeat. Sunday is the day, a battle not to be missed.

Other matches for the day are:

West Brom vs. Stoke – 1:30pm

Tottenham vs. Burnley
