Premier League Previews | Saturday Night

Comments

There are two Premier League games in primetime on Saturday night (9:30pm AEST) and while neither matchup is particularly glamourous, they are both crucially important.

Norwich are all but relegated and a loss to West Ham will seal the deal. The Hammers, on the other hand, can put some distance between them and the relegation zone with a victory.

The other match features Watford – in a very similar situation to West Ham and also on 31 points – trying to push themselves up the ladder against mercurial Newcastle.
