After an exciting week of FA Cup competition, the Premier League returns to action on Saturday with some thrilling contests lined up for us.
The weekend kicks off with in-form Tottenham Hotspur taking on Tony Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion at the White Hart Lane, which will be followed by six games that kick-off together, including Arsenal’s clash against bottom feeders Swansea City along with Sam Allardyce’s return to his former club with Crystal Palace taking on West Ham United. It will end with current league leaders Chelsea’s contest against current trophy holders Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
Then it will be Merseyside vs Manchester on Sunday as Everton will play hosts to Manchester City before Liverpool travel to Old Trafford to face Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
With such juicy fixtures coming ahead, we look at three things to watch out for the upcoming action this weekend:
Can Dele Alli continue his super-hot streak?
Dele Alli has been in scintillating form in recent weeks. The 20-year old has scored in each of Tottenham’s last four league games after a quiet start to the season.
The former MK Dons attacker has scored a brace in each of his last three appearances in the league, against Southampton, Watford and Chelsea and has managed to already equal his goal tally of 10 strikes from last season. In just his second term in the English top-flight, Alli has gone past the likes of Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, to become the fastest midfielder to reach 20 goals in the league.
And with West Brom up next for Spurs, Alli is expected to continue this rich vein of form, having scored twice in three matches against the Baggies in the past.
