Premier League Weekend Team News
Premier League action returns on Saturday after the international break and there are eight games scheduled for Saturday and Birmingham v Liverpool on Sunday followed by Stoke v Aston Villa rounding off the action on Monday evening .
Everton entertain Manchester United in the lunchtime kick off tomorrow and as usual the focus will be on Wayne Rooney as he returns to his old club . Rooney is expected to start the game and will surely recieve a very hostile reception following allegations of impropriety in his personal life .
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is set to miss the game against Blackburn with a knee injury . None of the City players who played for England mid week picked up knocks and City at 4/11 with Paddy Power should grab the three points .
Tottenham will be without Michael Dawson and Jermain Defoe for their Premier League match at West Brom tomorrow and this could give an opportunity for the Baggies to pull off a suprise victory . Paddy Power offer 3/1 West Brom .
Sunderland new signing Asamaoh Gyan will be looking to make an impression as the Black Cats travel to Wigan for a match in which it is difficult to pick a winner . Sunderland are shocking on their travels whilst Wigan are completely unpredictable . With Darren Bent and Gyan in their line up , Sunderland will expect to score and backing both teams to score is the value bet at 5/6 with Bet365 .
West Ham welcome Chelsea to Upton Park and could be without midfielder Thomas Hitzelsperger and Danny Gabbidon . With three Premier League defeats so far West Ham are up against it but with home advantage they could nick a draw and at 4/1 with Bet365 and Paddy Power that is better value than odds of 1/3 about Chelsea in the London derby .
Arsenal are without Robin Van Persie and Theo Walcott for the visit of Bolton to the Emirates and Bolton’s good form so far this season means they are far too big a price at 14/1 with Boylesports .
