Spurs open gameweek 7 with their first big test of the season by welcoming a Man city team who are yet drop points on their travels in the 12:45 kick off. The 3 o clocks follow as Manchester United host a winless Sunderland, the Swans travel to the Saints looking for their first away win and an anxious Anfield invite Villa who are unbeaten in their last three visits to the red half of Merseyside. The happy Hammers play the Canaries at Upton Park whilst the Cherries who’ve leaked 7 on their travels head to Stoke City and unbeaten Leicester city at home to Arsenal round off our 3 o clocks.
On Super Sunday, Crystal Palace travel to Vicarage Road which seems a fortress as Watford are yet to concede or lose at home this season. Finally Gary and Jamie are back on MNF as West Brom look for their first home win of the season when they play Everton at the Hawthorns.
Ones To Watch
Bojan Krkic- Back from his long spell out and possibly a bargain especially with Diouf not 100% fit, the former Barcelona wonder kid definitely sparked life into Stoke Citys attack with a goal last week. Assist potentially on the cards as we’ve seen his desire to drop into midfield to pick a pass but he’ll have an eye on goals too as he is unleashed on a Bournemouth team who’ve conceded 7 on their travels.
Aaron Cresswell- Part of the back four which has kept 3 clean sheets, he’s assisted twice too and further points could be on the cards. Payet does dominate the hammers headlines but fuelled with adrenaline from the West ham faithful’s, this unsung hero could be the attacking outlet to whip a few crosses in for Diafro Sakho.
Juan Mata- Ignites his team with creativity, 2 goals, 2 assists and he should improve his statistics as Manchester United play a struggling Sunderland who are yet to win. With a firing Martial and Memphis to pick out from, not only should they win but Mata could be the player to wave his wand over Old Trafford. Talented in picking passes we couldn’t dream of doing, his ability to be in the box at the right time to apply a finish or two makes him a strong candidate for captain this week.
Pedro- Accustomed himself quickly on his debut with a goal and an assist, the graduate of the renowned La Masia academy who’s yet to hit the fine form we’ve seen, could arrive on the score sheet or turn provider against a Newcastle team in crisis! No Costa means an opportunity for another player to play his part on the goals, with his pace, accurate dribbling and finishing he should be the one to torment a woeful Geordie defence.
