Premier League Saturday Preview

Saturday sees Premier League champions Manchester City looking to bounce back from their shock loss at Norwich last weekend.

Despite losing at Norwich, City still sit second in the league and with leaders Liverpool not playing until Sunday they will look to close the gap to just to just two points as they take on Watford at the Etihad Stadium.

City’s slayers Norwich will be looking for back-to-back wins as they take on Burnley.

The day’s opening game sees 5th play 3rd as Leicester play host to Tottenham at the King Power.

Everton and Sheffield United are both looking to bounce back from defeats last time out as they face each other at Goodison Park.

Newcastle are looking to move out of the bottom three in the day’s late kick-off as they host Brighton at St James’ Park.

See below for a preview on the games, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
