George's Premiership Predictions September 26 2015
The Premiership continues this weekend after games in the Capital One Cup in midweek. The match of the weekend sees table toppers Manchester City travel south to take on Spurs at White Hart Lane.
Manchester City lost their 100% record at home to West Ham last time out, but should be backed to pick up the points against Tottenham, for whom Harry Kane has yet to find his form of last season.
Manchester United face Sunderland who sit at the bottom of the league along with neighbours Newcastle. The Red Devils are still not firing on all cylinders but should find a way to heap more misery on the Black Cats.
Chelsea beat Arsenal in a bad-tempered affair at Stamford Bridge. Arsenal are away at in-form Leicester while Chelsea make the long trek to Newcastle who can't buy a win at this point and are rock bottom.
Pressure is mounting on Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers, the bookies' favourite in the Premier League sack race. Aston Villa have been equally poor but we reckon the pressure may get to the players and a draw seems likely.

Soccer - Remy keen for chance to shine
Chelsea striker Loic Remy hopes he will be handed a starting spot this weekend when last season's Premier League champions take on his former club Newcastle United. With Diego Costa suspended, Remy was among the scorers in a 4-1 Capital One Cup win over Walsall on Wednesday, and the France international is keen to start against the Magpies at St James' Park. He said: "It's very difficult, I can't lie. When you come in you have to do the best, but when you are not playing much it is more difficult. "I don't have any pressure, I just want to feel better and with the game which is coming I maybe have an opportunity to play more. We will see." Remy, who has scored seven Premier League goals for Jose Mourinho's team in 20 appearances, can be backed at 6/5 with bet365 to score at any time on Saturday, with Chelsea available at 7/1 to beat struggling Newcastle 2-0.
