The top clash out of England’s top flight for this weekend is the meeting of Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on the evening of Sunday 28 November at 5:30pm on SuperSport Premier League (DStv channel 203). While the Blues look every inch a true title contender, the Red Devils have been wildly inconsistent this season and will head to West London needing a big performance to stave off allegations that they are in a state of abject disrepair.
Sunday will also feature a potential thriller when Manchester City host West Ham United at 3pm onSuperSport Premier League. The Hammers have proved that they can do battle with the top clubs – including a cracking 3-2 win over Liverpool earlier this month – and manager David Moyes will be hopeful for another big performance at the Etihad Stadium.
The round also sees Arsenal open the weekend’s proceedings at home to Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon at 1:30pm on SuperSport Premier League, while Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace will aim to continue their impressive progress when they welcome Aston Villa to Selhurst Park at 4pm on SuperSport Variety 3 (DStv channel 208).
Liverpool will back themselves to beat Southamptonat home on Saturday at 4pm on SuperSport Premier League and SuperSport Football (DStv channel 205 and GOtv channel 31). Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur will have their toughness tested by a rugged Burnley on Sunday at 3pm on SuperSport Variety 3, and Claudio Ranieri will no doubt be given a warm welcome when he brings his Watford team to the King Power Stadium to face his former employers, Leicester City.
