Aston Villa – Brighton & Hove Albion

It will be played in the Villa Park at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 21.

Locals reap an enviable season, with 5 wins and 2 losses, in front of only 6 points seeded by Brighton. Despite the difference indicated by the numbers, the team of Dean Smith comes to a certain extent demoralized after linking two consecutive defeats, a situation that could be used by the pupils of Graham Potter to score points that allow him to ascend and achieve a more attractive position, since he is currently ranked No. 16, ten below his opponent.

Tottenham Hotspur – Manchester City

Possibly, the most interesting game on Saturday, at 18:30, Is played in Wembley.

Injuries, injuries and more injuries for both teams. The Londoners, without Doherty, Lamela, Bergwin and Ndombelé; and the ‘citizens’ without Agüero, Fernandinho, Sterling, Mendy and Aké. Something that both squads also have in common is a 5 game undefeated consecutive, being the locals those who have scored the most, fighting for the lead in second place in the table, while Guardiola’s are in the middle of the classification, 5 points (12). The ‘spurs’ come from winning, the ‘skyblues’ from drawing against Liverpool. Two titans With similar returns, they will face each other in the city of London.

Manchester United – West Bromwich Albion

Turn for the ‘red devils’, turn for Old Trafford (Saturday 9 pm).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the tightrope and West Brom is on the decline. The irregular results committed by those of Manchester and the 0 victories of the visitor, make this a meeting in which doubts are cleared. It may be a new opportunity for the United is placed in a good place, or it can be one more step towards the end of a questioned Solskjaer. Above all, the ‘red devils’ beat the mighty Everton (1-3) last day, where they left good feelings. On the other hand, this could be the first win for West Bromwich Albion.

Fulham – Everton

In the first game of Sunday, at 13:00, a Fulham that caresses the descents receives the team of Carlo Ancelotti in the mythical stadium of Craven Cottage.

And again we find some premises lacking in offense. They face an Everton that gave the surprise positioning in the first position just a month ago and falling in the last days after linking three consecutive defeats, a situation that locals should take advantage of to score in their territory. The ‘toffees’, who have been defeated by 1-3 against the ‘red devils’, have charged media prominence in recent days as a result of alleged crimes against the Public Treasury carried out by its technician and by high-profile offers of transfer by Belong e Isco, players who have already played for the visiting team. Everything remains to be seen in a match that can be decisive for both teams.

An unfortunate Sheffield with 1 point receive the West Ham at 15:00 on Sunday in Bramall Lane.

And it is that the locals they only scored in their draw against Fulham, while the ‘hammers‘ Have signed 3 wins and 2 draws. Sheffield have suffered a 4-1 comeback against Chelsea, a 3-minute loss to Arsenal and further losses by one goal difference. In short, it is not being accompanied by luck. That is why the visiting team, for which the incorporation of Real Madrid player Mariano (loan) is playing, stands as a clear favorite of the match, with players such as Creswell, at an excellent level.

Leeds United – Arsenal

This time on Elland Road at 5:30 PM, there is a clash between opponents who arrive with their guard down.

Both teams have experienced a drop in the standings after failing to score in their last matches. Leeds de Bielsa was positioned as one of the revelation team of this season, but three losses in the last 5 games they ruined his climb. The Londoners come from being crushed by an Aston Villa led by Ollie Watkins, and they are not in one of their best moments in sports. Both the locals and Arteta’s team are positioned in the lower half of the table and their duel does not admit favorites.

The Sunday at 20:15 occurs the match of the day at Anfield. The teams that live up there, on the podium. They are only separated by one point of difference (17 and 18 points, respectively).

Both teams arrive with significant casualties. To the delicate situation of Liverpool in defense, with the losses of Robertson, Van Dijk, Fabinho, the loss of Wrong, by Covid-19. The Leicester lands at Anfield with the loss of an excellent Fofana that makes a dent in the back of ‘foxes’.

For his part, Crystal Palace, eighth in the standings, comes from crushing Leeds United in their last game (4-1) with players like Wilfred Zaha O E. Eze, at an excellent level. The ‘glaziers’ trampled on rivals like Manchester United (1-3) in the second day of the league and are presented as a very strong opponent in away games.

Wolves – Southampton

The day says goodbye at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, November 23 in a disputed encounter in the Molineux Stadium.

A Wolves settled in the Premier League receives the sensation of the moment, the Southampton, which has not only gone 6 consecutive games without losing, but has also knocked down, against all odds, rivals such as Everton or Aston Villa, with an enviable scoring index (13 goals in the last 5 games). Only one victory and 3 points differentiate them, but it is difficult for the ‘wolves’ to score a goal, something that has been defined as the main quality of the visitors.
