Sunday sees the current top three clubs in the Premier League, Liverpool, Leicester, and Tottenham, all in action, and all three come into their games off the back of comfortable midweek wins in Europe. Their placings may have changed by the time they kick-off and all three face tough games.
West Brom v Tottenham
Winless West Brom welcome Tottenham to the Hawthorns for the Sunday lunchtime kick off. The Baggies are still looking for their first win since returning to the Premier League but have drawn three of their last five games, including their previous two at home. However, they suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Fulham last time out and remain in the relegation zone.
Spurs sit third going into the weekend after winning three of their last four games. They have also won their last two away games, including a sensational 6-1 defeat of Manchester United at Old Trafford and a 1-0 win at Burnley. Jose Mourinho’s side won 3-1 at Ludogorets on Thursday in the Europa League, a game that also saw Harry Kane score his 200th goal for Tottenham.
Leicester City v Wolves
Two successive away wins, at Arsenal and Leeds, saw Leicester move back up to second place in the Premier League, following two successive home defeats. They were also in Europa League action on Thursday and recorded a much needed 4-0 home win against Braga.
Wolves sit just outside the top five after recording three wins and a draw in their last four PL games. Two of those wins did come at home, but they also recorded an impressive 1-0 win at Leeds when they were last on the road. Without a midweek game, they will arrive fresh and are a dangerous team for the Foxes to contend with.
Manchester City v Liverpool
The standout game of the weekend sees current Premier League champions, Liverpool, travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City.
After suffering a shock 7-2 defeat at Aston Villa, Liverpool have responded with a 2-2 draw at Everton, before two successive 2-1 home successes against Sheffield United and West Ham, which has seen them move back to the top of the Premier League. They recorded an excellent 5-0 Champions League win at Atalanta on Tuesday night, with Diego Jota scoring an impressive hat-trick.
Their hosts, Manchester City, have had an inconsistent start to their campaign so far. City have won three, drawn two and lost one of their opening six games. That defeat came at home when Leicester beat them 5-2, but they did beat Arsenal 1-0 when last seen at the Etihad in the Premier League. City were also in Champions League action in midweek, comfortably beating Olympiacos 3-0 at home.
It will be a fascinating game and will see where these two title contenders are at this stage of the season.
