THREE things to look out for during this weekend’s Premier League action

Onwards to more Premier League action we go following a full compliment of midweek games. The schedule gets very busy as we edge ever closer towards Christmas which is great, of course, for us fans.

The midweek games saw Arsenal stay at the top of the pile whilst Everton pulled off a magnificent result at Old Trafford. 

So, what can we expecet from this weekend’s action? Read on to find out:

1) Newcastle to heap the misery on David Moyes.

David Moyes is already showing the wear and tear of what has been a stressful first season thus far at his new club. It was never going to be easy to oversee the transition from Alex Ferguson to himself but 22 points from 14 games was definitely not what he had in mind.

United were desperately unlucky on Wednesday night but Everton were ambitious with their style of play and got their just rewards. Newcastle visit Old Trafford next and Alain Parjuf’s French XI have been one of the form teams in the league for the past month despite Wednesday’s 3-0 loss to Swansea. Having seen what Everton were able to achieve, the Magpies will be confident they can get a positive result against a United team that will not have Wayne Rooney due to suspension.

2) The Saints to stop the rot.

Following a superb start to the season the last three games have been a horrible bump back down to earth for Southampton. Having conceded only 3 goals in their first 11 games they have conceded eight in their last three.

Rickie Lambert and co will be keen to revert back to winning ways and this weekend they welcome high flying Manchester City and their merry band of overpaid mercenaries. City’s away form has been patchy this season and their 3-2 win at West Brom was only their second win on the road. The Saints will be aware of this as they look to get their season back on track.

3) Everton to continue using the power of LUKAKU.

After what was a truly brilliant night at Old Trafford, the Toffees now face another stern test away from Goodison Park against league leaders Arsenal. Roberto Martinez is well aware of what he needs to do and this is fully utilise the power and strength of the man they call Lukaku.

 The Belgian striker was fantastic against Manchester United as he bullied Nemanja Vidic into submission before setting up the winning goal.

Per Mertersacker and Laurent Koscielny will know they have a tough job on their hands trying to contain Lukaku but the pair have been brilliant all season long and are a big reason why Arsenal have been so very good this season. It will be an excellent encounter and is the pick of the fixtures this weekend.
