Premier League matches return for week 14 after just two days of rest with matches taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. This past weekend’s games were almost a return to normality in terms of the big teams staking their claims for places in the table.
Southampton were unseated from their place in second position after giving up three goals in their loss to Manchester City. While Chelsea was held by mid-table Sunderland, they remain unbeaten and in first place with 33 points, still six clear of Manchester City.
The middle of the table is still packed full with just six points separating Everton in tenth place and Burnley in 19th; seven if you go as far as Leicester City at the bottom of the table.
These midweek matches are always tricky for any team, but even more so for the big teams facing off against lower table opposition. This is certainly the case for match-ups including Leicester at home to Liverpool, Manchester City taking on Sunderland, Arsenal vs Southampton, and even Burnley facing Newcastle United.
Manchester United have a difficult home match against Stoke that is made all the more difficult by their continuing struggles with injuries, particularly with Angel Di Maria out as well.
The two biggest matches of the weekend will certainly be taking place in London. Arsenal and Chelsea both play at home to Southampton and Tottenham, respectively. Both should be exciting matches and neither will be easy for either team.
