Four must see Premier League games this weekend

Chelsea’s visit to the Emirates to face Arsenal headlines match-week 23 games but there could be a couple of surprises when Liverpool, Manchester United and Man City take-on the so-called smaller teams.

Here are the top four Barclays Premier League games you shouldn’t miss this weekend.

  1. Norwich vs. Liverpool

Venue: Carrow Road

Kick-off: Saturday, 1:45pm

Head-to-head: Norwich 0, Draw 2, Liverpool 8

Liverpool have won nine and lost none of the last 11 meetings with Norwich City.

Liverpool have scored just one goal in their last four league away matches, losing three (W1 D0 L3).

Norwich are unbeaten in the last five top-flight matches at Carrow Road (W3 D2), keeping clean sheets in all three victories and conceding just once in each of the two draws.

  1. Manchester United vs. Southampton

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick-off: Saturday, 4pm

Head-to-head: Man Utd 7, Draw 2, Southampton 1

Match Facts:

United have won seven and lost just one of the last 10 BPL matches against Southampton, but that defeat came in Saints’ last visit to Old Trafford.

Graziano Pelle has scored three goals in as many appearances against the Red Devils.

Wayne Rooney has currently scored 98 BPL goals at Old Trafford.

  1. West Ham vs. Man City

Venue: Boleyn Ground

Kick-off: Saturday, 6:30pm

Head-to-head: West Ham 2, Draw 2, City 6

Match facts:

After winning just one of the previous 14 BPL matches against City (W1 D3 L10), West Ham have won two of the last three meetings (W2 L1).

Arsenal have won seven and lost none of their last nine league encounters at Emirates Stadium, conceding just four goals in that run.
