Opening the weekend show

The Premier League will be returning to our screens this weekend after a brief hiatus courtesy of the international break. All twenty teams will either be attempting to keep their momentum going or build some up from nothing, depending on how they kicked off the campaign. Two teams that will be hoping they can continue to thrive at the top of the table are Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, with the two EPL juggernauts going head to head in the early kick off.

Setting the benchmark for the weekend is tough to do, because if you drop the ball, then you’ve got a long time to think about it as you wait for the other results to come in. Plus, when two big teams play each other like this it gives the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and the rest to take a step back and analyse their future opposition – knowing that at least one of them will have to drop points.

Tottenham are in a slightly more ‘desperate’ position than Liverpool after losing to Watford before the international break, and in truth, those two weeks couldn’t have come soon enough. Spurs have been circling the drain with some of their performances and they were bound to get caught out sooner rather than later, and now, all that’s left to do for them is to prove they can keep up with the big boys.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have the expectations of an entire city on their shoulders. In the eyes of many fans they’ve overtaken City as the frontrunners in the title race this season, and as you can imagine, that has a lot of fans worried as to whether or not they can hack that kind of pressure.

Who will come away with the three points this weekend?
