The Premiership continues on after the final week of regular Euro 2016 qualification games.
In the Premiership Jurgen Klopp will be in charge of Liverpool in his first match away at Spurs. Brendan Rogers was sacked before the international break which is so often the case for managers on the edge. How will his German replacement fare in the Premier League?
Manchester City are at home to Pkv newcomers Bournemouth and even without David Silva and Sergio Aguero should be too strong at home. Manchester United travel to Goodison after a poor game away to Arsenal, Chelsea face a disappointing Aston Villa while high-flying Palace are at home to fellow Londoners West Ham.

Soccer – Ranieri reveals Saints talks
Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has said that he held talks with Southampton last year about becoming Saints boss before he took charge of Greece. The former Chelsea and Valencia manager endured a dreadful time with the Greeks, who have failed to qualify for the Euro 2016 finals. Ranieri lost his job after only four months in charge of the Euro 2004 winners before being named as the new Foxes boss this summer. “I was interested, but after that there was also the Greece job – and I made a mistake,” admitted the Italian. Southampton face Leicester this weekend and Saints are 1/2 with bet365 to be the first team to score in the St Mary’s clash and 6/4 to keep a clean sheet in the game.
Soccer – Mourinho confident Chelsea’s fortunes will change
Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho has predicted that his side will soon start climbing the table. Last season’s Premier League champions have made a dismal start to the defence of their title, losing four of their first eight matches, and are 16th in the table ahead of this weekend’s game against Aston Villa. However, Mourinho is certain that his side will soon start to put some wins on the board. He said: “Every game is a must-win game and, when we don’t win, it’s always a frustration, but we cannot run away from the reality of the situation. “We need to win matches, for us, for the Chelsea supporters. We are not going to be relegated – in a couple of months we will be in a position we want to be in.” Chelsea are 5/6 with bet365 to keep a clean sheet against Villa and 21/10 to be leading 1-0 at half-time at Stamford Bridge.
