As India celebrates the festival of lights, Diwali, across the country, the English Premier League is gearing up for a spectacular Sunday filled with fireworks which will witness some tough tussles between some big teams and the blazing guns this season. Table-toppers Liverpool will go up against their Champions League Final opponents Tottenham Hotspur at home whereas Arsenal will go up against Crystal Palace. Manchester United who have had a very disappointing start will face Norwich City, the team that beat Guardiola's men 2-0 this season. In another fierce battle, blazing Wolves will go up against Newcastle United.
This might seem like a repeat of Champions League Final, but a lot has changed since then. While Liverpool have maintained their unbeaten run in the Premier League and remain in contention for the title, Spurs have had a rather disappointing start having bagged only 12 points from the 9 matches that they have played. However, both the teams will go onto play against each other following a draw in their previous outing. Anfield is expected to burst out in celebrations considering their forwards, Mane, Salah and Firmino who have been in top-novth form this season.
Wolves have seen a complete turnover recently, as they have gone all out turning tables one after the other which can be reflected from their match against reigning champions Manchester City which they won by 2 goals and also ensured a clean sheet. Newcastle, on the other hand, have been staggering. The team beat Manchester United first but then lost to Chelsea and now sit on the 17th position in the Premier League rankings.
On one hand, where Arsenal will look forward to maintain their record of not losing a Premier League match in October, Crystal Palace might just look to end the streak. Both the teams go into the match after having lost their previous matches. On the league table, Crystal Palace stand sixth just behind their opponents Arsenal who shown promise and intent this season but have failed to capitalize on opportunities.
Apart from Wolves, Norwich City is the only team that has beat Manchester City this season and United will be praying to all Gods tonight to escape their wrath. United, who have witnessed one of their worst seasons so far, would look to gain some momentum and at least escape the relegation zone with all their star players available to play after being out due to injuries.
