Chelsea are on a roll right now, recording four wins at an average of 3.75 goals. However, none of those defeated clubs are considered title contenders. On the fifth game week, they will have their first real test as they face the defending champions Manchester City. Coach Pellegrini's side lost their last home match to Stoke City but they surely won't allow another defeat, especially to rivals Chelsea. Match is on September 21, 23:00 (GMT+8).
Liverpool dominated Everton in last season’s Merseyside Derby, via a 4-0 scoreline. This victory ended a series of draw matches between the two sides. Come the sixth game week of the season, will Brendan Rodgers’ side add to their most recent Merseyside Derby win to make it back-to-back, or will Everton come out on top this time around? The last time Everton won at Anfield was in 1999. Match is on September 27 at 19:45(GMT+8).
When Chelsea visited Aston Villa last March, the Villans won. On the sixth game week of the season, manager Paul Lambert and the rest of the team will try not only to extend their impressive run but also prove that their victory over Chelsea is no fluke. Aston Villa have pulled off road wins recently, but Stamford Bridge is difficult to conquer. Can they do it? Match is on September 27 at 22:00 (GMT+8).
Hull City never stood a chance against Manchester City in the last two instances they met, whether in KC Stadium or in Etihad Stadium. On the sixth game week of the season, manager Steve Bruce will try to stop this trend. The last time Hull City welcomed the Citizens, the Tigers conceded an early goal. In this upcoming match, they can't afford another sluggish start. Match is on September 27 at 22:00 (GMT+8).
Despite the struggles of Manchester United FC last season, one of the things they did consistently was win over West Ham United. Manager Sam Allardyce and his players failed to take advantage of Manchester United’s vulnerability last season to eke out a win. Facing Manchester United on September 27 at 22:00 (GMT+8), West Ham United face a tough road towards victory, with the Red Devils bolstered by a new manager and several new acquisitions.
