The Premier League will return this weekend before teams disband ahead of yet another international break. Things are quite tight at both ends of the table as we head into the 12th gameweek of the 2023-24 Premier League season.

Manchester City are at the top of the table right now, holding a slender one-point lead over an injury-laden Tottenham Hotspur side. Liverpool and Arsenal are breathing down their necks too. The likes of Luton Town, Bournemouth, Burnley and Sheffield United are yet to truly get their campaigns on the rails and are already embroiled in an early relegation dogfight.

Without further ado, let’s preview all the Premier League games from this weekend.


Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur

Enter captionJames Maddison is going to be out too and Richarlison is set to undergo surgery. Ange Postecoglou will be fielding a makeshift backline and they are not going to be the same side that got off to a flying start to the season due to their injuries.

Prediction: Wolverhampton 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur


Manchester United vs Luton Town

Enter captionSevilla, a 2-0 win, in midweek. It’s great for them to be winning again after their disappointment at Newcastle United under controversial circumstances. I don’t see anything getting in between Arsenal and three points here.

I worry for Burnley. They keep on playing total football and it is not working out for them. It’s about time they decided that they’re going a different route because something has got to give there.

Prediction: Arsenal 3-0 Burnley


Crystal Palace vs Everton

Enter captionLucas Paqueta and Edson Alvarez returning to the mix, they should be able to cruise to a comfortable win here.

Prediction: West Ham United 2-0 Nottingham Forest


Liverpool vs Brentford
