Will an in-form Harry Kane give the Terriers a rude awakening?
Huddersfield Town have made a bright start to their debut Premier League campaign but they could be in for a rude awakening on Saturday when they open up GW7 proceedings with a home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.
Harry Kane has suddenly found his shooting boots, scoring 5 times in 4 days and this does not bode well for the Terriers. Taming back-to-back Golden Boot winner Kane will be essential if the hosts are to get anything from this encounter.
Things continue to go from bad to worse for Crystal Palace, with star striker Christian Benteke expected to be sidelined for around 6 weeks. The Eagles, who are still without a point or a goal this season, travel to Old Trafford on Saturday before facing champions’ Chelsea at Selhurst Park in Gameweek 8.
The latest goal projections suggest that they could be in for another long afternoon against Manchester United unless the home side are inflicted with a severe case of jet lag. The Red Devils are in action against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The highlight of GW7 is undoubtedly the clash between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge as both sides’ title credentials are put to the test. The visitors have been going goal crazy of late but this meeting could turn into a cagey affair with so much on the line.
Arsenal will be looking to continue their push up the table when they welcome Premier League new boys’ Brighton and Hove Albion to the Emirates on Sunday. Arsene Wenger has seemingly weathered yet another storm and this is the time of the season when the Gunners tend to put together a useful run.
The Gameweek 7 action is wrapped up with Newcastle United manager Rafa Benítez welcoming his former club Liverpool to St James’ Park.
It’s certainly a big weekend for the 3 promoted clubs, with all of them facing teams with title aspirations – can any of them spring a shock?
