CHELSEA - NORWICH

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Chelsea

  • Jose Mourinho will be back on the touchline this weekend after serving his one-game stadium ban in the 1-0 defeat to Stoke before the international break.
  • The Chelsea boss will still be without Thibaut Courtois and there are also doubts surrounding the fitness of Falcao and Kurt Zouma.
  • Loic Remy is challenging for a start ahead of an underperforming Diego Costa. Eden Hazard was ill on international duty, but should be fine for the reception of Norwich and Branislav Ivanovic should return to the side having missed their last seven matches in all competitions.
Norwich

  • Norwich will welcome back captain Russell Martin after he sat our their 1-0 win over Swansea before the international break through suspension.
  • Matt Jarvis is still out and Nathan Redmond is also a doubt for the trip to Stamford Bridge.
  • There may be concerns over Wes Hoolahan's fitness after he featured in both of Ireland's matches against Bosnia in the space of three days.

 

 

PREDICTION

 

  • The international break would have provided Jose Mourinho with plenty of time to assess Chelsea's horrendous start the season. The Premier League champions are only three points off the bottom three after 12 matches having lost four of their last five league games.
  • Norwich, on the other hand, stopped a run of four straight defeats in the league to pick up their first win since September when they beat Swansea before the international break. In order to win this fixture, they are going to have to overcome a head-to-head record that reads six defeats in their last eight encounters with Chelsea.
  • Even in this state, Chelsea should have enough to overcome them here.

EVERTON - ASTON VILLA

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Everton

  • With Brendan Galloway and Tyias Browning picking up minor injury concerns Roberto Martinez continues to have real problems at left-back, though Leighton Baines is nearing a return and could be in contention.
  • With Phil Jagielka sidelined Ramiro Funes Mori will keep his place at the back alongside John Stones.
  • Elsewhere Tom Cleverley will hope to return to contention after injury to face the side with whom he spent last season on loan.
Aston Villa

  • Villa suffered a real blow over the international break with the news that Jordan Amavi will miss the rest of the season having ruptured ligaments in his knee on U21 international duty.
  • Rudy Gestede has also returned from the break with an injury and will be assessed prior to kick off.
  • Ashley Westwood is back available and will compete for a place in midfield, with both Gana and Sanchez facing long trips back to the Midlands from Africa and South America respectively.

 

 

PREDICTION

 

  • Both sides had a number of first team players away on international duty, with Villa suffering the most in that time and the loss of Jordan Amavi will have been a real blow to new manager Remi Garde.
  • Everton's home form has been patchy, with only West Brom conceding more goals as hosts, while Villa haven't struggled for goals on the road so while the Toffees will be strong favourites there should be action at either end.
  • The visitors will want to put in another organised performance but will do well to keep the likes of Deulofeu and Lukaku quiet in what should be an entertaining game.

SWANSEA - BOURNEMOUTH

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Swansea

  • Garry Monk has the luxury of a fully fit squad to select from after none of his key performers suffered any injuries while away on international duty.
  • The Swansea boss is expected to name his strongest XI as the team looks to bounce back from their disappointing 1-0 defeat at Norwich prior to the international break.
Bournemouth

  • Marc Pugh and Christian Atsu are doubts for Eddie Howe's side are will face late fitness tests ahead of the trip to Swansea.
  • Tommy Elphick, Tyrone Mings, Max Gradel and Callum Wilson are all long-term injury absentees for the Cherries.
  • Howe could name the same starting XI that was unfortunate to fall to defeat to Newcastle before the international break.

 

 

PREDICTION

 

  • Defeat to Norwich last time out means Swansea have won just one of their last eight league games and sit just five points above the relegation zone following a poor run. However, their home form is promising having taken eight points of a possible 18 in front of their own fans this season.
  • Bournemouth currently sit 18th in Premier League and are two points off safety. The Cherries were unlucky against Newcastle last time out, but they need to quickly turn their performances around if they are to pull themselves out of this current rut.
  • Given Bournemouth have one of the worst away records in England's top tier this term, Swansea come into this as favourites and should win here.

MANCHESTER CITY - LIVERPOOL

 

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Manchester City

  • Manchester City have a number of doubts for the reception of Liverpool. Sergio Aguero is back in contention, but David Silva and Vincent Kompany are both out through injury.
  • It remains to be seen whether Aguero is okay to start, which could give Raheem Sterling a start as the striker.
  • Fabian Delph also returned from international duty with a knock, while Samir Nasri, Pablo Zabaleta and Wilfried Bony are all out.
  • Sterling will be lining up against Liverpool for the first time since swapping Merseyside for Manchester over the summer.
Liverpool

  • Daniel Sturridge is back in full training and could be included from the off after missing their last seven matches in all competitions.
  • Jordon Ibe and James Milner have also returned to full training after recovering from minor knocks, but Jon Flanagan, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez and Danny Ings are all still sidelined.
  • Mamadou Sakho is out of action for the next two months and will be replaced in the starting XI by Dejan Lovren.
  • Milner could line up against Manchester City for the first time since leaving over the summer.


 

PREDICTION

 

  • Manchester City could start this fixture as low as fourth by the time they kick off and they could be taking on a Liverpool side without a number of first-team players. They've managed to cope without Silva and Aguero relatively well and the return of these two would be a huge boost for them.
  • Liverpool, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back from the first defeat under the Jurgen Klopp regime. They lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace at Anfield before the international break and Klopp will be looking to see what sort of resolve his players have ahead of the transfer window in January.
  • These encounters have provided plenty of goals in recent times, but it could be a tighter affair if they are both coping with a number of injury absentees.

TOTTENHAM - WEST HAM

 

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Tottenham

  • Erik Lamela is suspended after receiving his fifth booking of the season against Arsenal, with Heung-min Son expected to start in his absence.
  • Alex Pritchard and Nacer Chadli both miss out through injury for the home side.
  • Nabil Bentaleb should be available despite being subbed off in the first half while on international duty with Algeria, while Clinton N'Jie is a doubt, but Mousa Dembele has been passed fit.
West Ham

  • James Collins is suspended for the Hammers, with James Tomkins set to partner Winston Reid at centre-back once more.
  • Dimitri Payet sustained an ankle injury in the 1-1 draw with Everton prior to the international break, with Mauro Zarate expected to come into the starting XI.
  • Alex Song stepped up his return from injury during the international break, but this fixture may come too soon for the Cameroon international.
  • Pedro Obiang and Diafra Sakho are doubts for Slaven Bilic, while Enner Valencia misses out.

 

 

PREDICTION

 

  • A 1-1 draw with Arsenal last time out extended Tottenham's unbeaten run to 11 games, with Spurs level on points with West Ham coming into this fixture. Mauricio Pochettino's side have struggled against their London rivals in the past having failed to win any of their last three home league meetings with the Hammers, losing two.
  • West Ham have lost just once away from home in the Premier League this season, with their record on the road second only to Arsenal this term. Four wins from six games is a commendable return for the Hammers, who will look to bounce back on their travels at Spurs' expense on Sunday.
  • However, with the Hammers without key man Dimitri Payet here, Spurs have what it takes to secure the win.
