Another Super Sunday in store for EPL
By Ray Hamill
It’s going to be another Super Sunday in the English Premier League this weekend, with five of the big six in action, including a pair of mouthwatering matchups.
And that means an early start for U.S. fans, with the first of four games getting under way at 7 a.m. on the East Coast.
It will also be the last action for a couple of weeks with the final international break of the year scheduled for next weekend.
First up on Sunday, third-placed Tottenham will attempt to bounce back from last weekend’s loss to Manchester United, hosting a struggling Crystal Palace in an all-London affair.
At 9:15 a.m., leaders Manchester City, who have won eight straight games and 14 overall, host Arsenal, with the fifth-placed Gunners looking to close the gap at the top and move into the top three.
At 11:30 a.m., meanwhile, struggling Everton will try to kickstart its season and move out of the relegation zone when the Toffees host Watford, which has been impressive through the early season and can move back into the top eight with a win.
Rounding out the day’s action, also at 11:30, the biggest game of the weekend sees second-placed United travel to London to play fourth-placed Chelsea in a matchup of title contenders.
