Premier League Sunday Preview

Newly promoted Huddersfield look for back-to-back wins to start the season as Tottenham kick-off life in their temporary home of Wembley.

The Terriers began life back in the top-flight with a convincing win over Crystal Palace, whilst Newcastle lost to Spurs – and now the two newly promoted teams clash in the early kick-off on Sunday.

SuperSunday is a fitting one this week with a huge game at Wembley – which hosts a Premier League match for the first time, as Tottenham host champions Chelsea in a mouthwatering looking clash.

Chelsea are looking to avoid becoming the first ever Premier League champions to lose their opening two games of the following season.

See below for a run-down on the games, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder and columnist Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey  together with everything you need to know from the bookies – with Ladbrokes’s William Geldart.
