Sunday afternoon in the Premier League is busy with four gameweek 12 games taking place. Here are the big English top-flight games taking place on Sunday:
Chelsea v Everton (Kick-off 2: 15 PM)
On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea face a potentially tricky home game against Everton at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will be determined to keep up their good start to their Premier League campaign that has brought eight victories and three draws so far this season.
The Blues head into this clash on the back of three wins in their last four top-flight games, having scored at least twice in their last four outings in the Premier League. Maurizio Sarri’s team has also won their last five games in all competitions.
The team from south west London are now nine games unbeaten on home soil in the Premier League. Both teams have scored in six of their last seven league games at Stamford Bridge. Considering Everton’s style of play that cannot be ruled out in this clash.
Everton heads into this clash on the back of four victories in their last five league games, scoring at least two goals in each victory.
The Toffees form under new boss Marco Silva has been promising. However, the Merseysiders have not won at Chelsea in the 24 years. The visitor’s away record in the top-flight of just one win in their last six outings does not bode well to end that long hoodoo.
One of their biggest problems for the visitors has been conceding goals on their travels, as they have conceded at least twice in five of their last six league outings. Despite their recent good form, Silva’s team heads into this game as major underdogs to record a victory in south west London.
Manchester City v Manchester United (Kick-off 4:30 PM)
Manchester City and Manchester United go head-to-head at the Etihad Stadium in arguably the game of the weekend in the Premier League.
There has not been much between these two teams in Manchester derbies of late, as both teams have claimed two victories and games have finished all square in their last six meetings in all competitions.
City have started their campaign in ominous fashion by claiming wins in nine of their first 11 league outings. Last time out in the Premier League, City recorded a 6-0 home win over Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.
A midweek 6-0 home win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League means that the Citizens have now recorded six straight wins in all competitions while scoring at least two goals in five of those six victories.
Pep Guardiola’s side has now also won their last five home games in all competitions, scoring at least twice in all five wins.
Manchester United will be in high spirits after pulling off a shock 2-1 defeat of Juventus in the Champions League in midweek. The win means that the Red Devils have now won their last three games in all competitions.
United have also won three of their last four games in the Premier League while remaining unbeaten. Mourinho’s team has also scored at least two goals in their four outings in the top-flight. The Red Devils have not been great on their travels of late, but they have managed to score at least twice in five of their last six away games in the Premier League.
