Pure weekend Premier League magic once again, with action to preview from both Saturday and Sunday.

Everyone’s in play. And it won’t be long before many of the League’s top performers are away in Qatar – the FIFA World Cup starts on Sunday, November 20th.

Let’s savour the last few weeks before that – and don’t forget, Premier hostilities will resume on Boxing Day. So much going on – what a feast!

Harry Kane was on TV the other day, hoping to take some inspiration to the Middle East from the Lionesses’ thrilling summer triumph. In the meantime he’ll need to inspire his Spurs teammates, as they’ve looked distinctly ordinary in recent weeks to me. A trip to the seaside on Saturday (Bournemouth) might be the tonic required – or will it?

That’s just one of the ten matches previewed below by my colleague Owen and myself. A natter the like of which you’ll have with your pals, family, workmates, and anyone like us, who’s hooked on this beautiful game of ours.

Only Manchester City of the so-called big six won last weekend, with Liverpool’s reverse at Forest perhaps the most interesting turn-up. Manchester United are quietly organising themselves a lot better, and entertain West Ham on Sunday. Nice one for the neutral.

Football Odds

Leeds visit Anfield, sparking a million memories for the more mature devotee of battles past. Leaders Arsenal host those Forest giant-killers, while the deeply-impressive Newcastle play Aston Villa at St James’ Park.

The Villans responded to losing manager Steven Gerrard in some style last week with a four-zip dismantling of Brentford, but face a far sterner challenge in the north-east. Cracking match I reckon.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester Foxes are slowly finding some form, and for me that’s got plenty to do with Belgian stopper Wout Faes, who’s been in tremendous nick. He’s got a Saturday lunchtime date with one Erling Haaland – the outcome of which will surely go a long way to determining the fate of visitors Man City. Should be another absolute belter.

Here we go then. Audio previews for all ten Premier League matches for Sat and Sun. Have a listen, and compare our thoughts to yours. Between us all we’re sure to get a few right – right? Fingers crossed …

Have a good one, as always.
