Premier League weekend predictions

This week sees the top two teams in the league go head to head at the Emirates. Arsenal take on Man United in what has been one the most eagerly anticipated games in a long time at Saturday noon. Arsenal go into the game unbeaten this season after coming through a tricky game last week against Liverpool drawing 1-1. United on the other romped past Middlesbrough 4-1 at Old Trafford last week to make it eight straight wins in the league.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Juande Ramos' Tottenham face a tricky trip to Middlebrough with the new boss hoping to carry Wednesday's winning ways into this game. Middlesbrough were well and truly beaten last week losing 1-4 to Man United and Tottenham also lost last week at the hands of Blackburn at White Hart Lane. Monday sees former Man United player Roy Keane return to local rivals Manchester City at the City of Manchester Stadium. City of course had a horrible week last week losing 6-0 to Chelsea but Sunderland managed to snatch a point against Fulham last weekend.
