A first win for Jose Mourinho's Tottenham, and Liverpool march on: The Premier League predictions

A look ahead to the action in England's top flight

"Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one." With those words, Jose Mourinho introduced himself to the Premier League at Chelsea in the summer of 2004.

Here we are 15 years later and The Special One is back, this time at Tottenham after a roller-coaster ride around Europe and Manchester.

The fascination has not dimmed, even if his spell at Old Trafford did hint that his magical powers may be on the wane.

Tottenham certainly still believe he is the real deal, and the first test of his mettle will be at West Ham in the first Premier League game of the weekend, Saturday at 4.30pm.

Liverpool's trip to Crystal Palace is the pick of the 7pm games, while Saturday concludes with Manchester City hosting Chelsea at 9.30pm, a tough one for Frank Lampard.

Sunday offers a tough-as-steel Sheffield United at home to Manchester United at 8.30pm, while the action concludes on Monday night at midnight with Aston Villa against Newcastle.
