A preview the pick of the EPL’s matches this weekend.
Premier League : Man Utd v Norwich match preview
Last EPL meeting: Norwich 1 Manchester United 0
With United streaking away with a seemingly insurmountable lead of 12 points at the top of the table, they have every reason to want to get closer to yet another title and silence the noisy neighbours. Having said that, one of the few games the Red Devils have lost this campaign was to Norwich. A single Anthony Pilkington goal settled it back in November but we can’t see past revenge for Manchester United.
Of course there is the small matter of Real Madrid coming to town on Tuesday night so there may be some squad rotation to rest key players who will likely be warming the bench in case of emergency.
Norwich City have a good record against teams up the table though, having done well against the likes of Arsenal, Stoke, Spurs and Everton. But against the might of Manchester United? They are almost un-backable for this game so perhaps a cheeky few quid on the Canaries could pay off at about 10 to 1.
Tip: Manchester United 4 Norwich City 1
Premier League: Tottenham v Arsenal match preview
Last EPL meeting: Arsenal 5 Tottenham 2
A tricky one for both teams, this. Spurs know that they must keep winning to maintain the gap against their North London rivals as well as Chelsea but will remember what happened last season only too well. Could it happen again? Arsenal have been winning ugly and will throw everything at this one at White Hart Lane.
Expectations will be high of Gareth Bale given his incredible form and the timing of his goals of late, but Spurs must get more from Emmanuel Adebayor now and he showed glimpses of form against West Ham on Monday night. Tottenham have lost one game at home to the Gunners out of the last seven played at White Hart Lane. Wenger’s team are looking to make it three wins on the trot against Spurs and have scored 10 goals against them in the last two encounters combined.
There will be goals in this match and we reckon both teams will be cautious. Spurs are slight favourites to win this at home with most bookies but the Gunners will up their game for certain.
Whatever happens, all eyes will be on this Sunday 4pm kick off.
