The 2015/16 Barclays Premier League fixtures have been released and has thrown up some really special weekend’s of football. Here are five of the greatest weekend’s from the upcoming season…
24th October 2015
Biggest Fixtures: Sunderland vs Newcastle/Manchester United vs Manchester City
Massive derby weekend. Firstly, the ferocious Tyne-Wear derby, both sets of fans would have been frantically scanning the the fixture list at 9am to see when they will be facing one another, with Newcastle looking to make amends for two losses next season. If that’s not enough for you the same weekend there is also the Manchester Derby! This game has more at stake than just bragging rights, it also has a massive impact in the two hunting for the tilte.
19th September 2015
Biggest Fixtures: Aston Villa vs West Bromwich Albion/Chelsea vs Arsenal
The weekend of 19th September is another belter in the Premier League. Two London sides who will be gunning for the title clash at Stamford Bridge as Arsenal travel to the home of the Champions. On the same weekend Aston Villa play host to local rivals West Brom in a game that both sets of fans were undoubtedly keeping an eye on/
7th November 2015
Biggest Fixtures: Arsenal vs Tottenham/Leicester vs Watford
This is the weekend many Arsenal and Tottenham fans would have got to on their search for the first North London Derby of the season. It’s always a fixture that provides plenty of drama and goals, and is a highlight of the season for not only the supporters of both sides, but also the neutrals. Despite Arsenal’s FA Cup success, they only managed to get one point from the two matches against Spurs last year, so they will be doing their upmost to overturn that record. Also on this weekend is the first fixture of the season between Leicester and Watford. All we can say is don’t miss this one. This fixture gave us the most dramatic minute in football history… “Deeney!!!!!!”
27th February 2016
Biggest Fixtures: Manchester United vs Arsenal/Liverpool vs Everton
What a weekend this is. On the same weekend that Man United play old rivals Arsenal, there is the incomparable Merseyside derby. Both Liverpool and Everton had very disappointing campaigns last season, so they will both be hoping that they come into this fixture higher up the table this time. Last time they played at Anfield, Phil Jagielka netted an unbelievable stoppage-time equaliser. As for Man United-Arsenal, both sides will hope that by the time this fixture comes around, they will be fighting at the top of the table with the likes of Chelsea and Man City. They played each other three times last term, with one away win each and a draw, and we can expect another typically tight affair on this weekend too.
1st March 2016
Biggest Fixtures: Bournemouth vs Southampton/West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur
At first glance this may not look like that big a weekend, but trust us it is. With West Ham leaving the Boleyn Ground at the end of this season they will be desperate to pick up three points at home against arguably their biggest Premier League rivals Spurs in their last ever game against them at Upton Park. Add to that an interesting South Coast clash, which could spawn a very exciting derby, between Bournemouth and Southampton and this is another great weekend in the Premier League.
What fixture are you most excited about next season?
