Weekend Preview: 25th October 2013

Diamond's preview of the Weekend's Football with big games like Chelsea V City and the Tyne-Wear derby.

After the goings-on in the Champions League and Europa League games mid-week it will be an interesting weekend in the Premier League.

Here are our top 5 games to watch this weekend:

Crystal Palace V Arsenal

Crystal Palace find themselves with only 3 points after 8 games. This caused manager Ian Holloway to resign from his post claiming he was "too tired" to continue. Caretaker manager Keith Millen will be hoping he can capitalise on Arsenal's loss mid-week. Arsenal on the other hand, know Chelsea are hot on their tails and winning this fixture is as important as any other.

Prediction: 3-1 to Arsenal.

Liverpool V West Brom

Liverpool will be hoping to forget the results of last season, after West Brom beat them both away and at home. With the new SAS (Sturridge and Suarez) strikeforce Rodgers will be hoping this season they can beat The Baggies. West Brom have had a mixed start to the season and find themselves in 12th place - although they have recently beaten Man Utd, Steve Clarke will be hoping he can inspire his team to another emphatic win at Anfield.

Prediction: 2-1 to West Brom.

Sunderland V Newcastle

So its that time of the year again, the Tyne-Wear derby is back. Pardew's men will be hoping to capitalise on the management problems that have faced Sunderland. Even though last year it was during this game where Di Canio cemented his place in Sunderland folklore by beating Newcastle 3-0 away. Gus Poyet says it will be the "perfect game to start [Sunderland's] winning".

Prediction: 2-0 to Newcastle

Chelsea V Man City

Chelsea V Man City is a much anticipated game. With Mourinho's men finally coming together and finding themselves in second place plus exciting performances mid week, Chelsea know they have a good chance. However, Man City have won three games in a row and will be hoping to continue their run of form by beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Prediction: 3-2 to Chelsea.

Man Utd V Stoke

After the release of Sir Alex Ferguson's controversial auto-biography, many will be wondering how players like Rooney will respond. Rooney himself insists that he would rather the team focus on the games and Moyes will certainly be hoping so. Stoke  find themselves in 16th place and will be hoping that The Red Devils are riled enough to slip up. 

Prediction: 2-1 to Man Utd.
