Thomas Partey and Gareth Bale Likey Debuts This Weekend as EPL Returns

Premier League football returns with a bang this weekend following a two week pause for the international break.

The prospect of titanic clashes such as Everton vs Liverpool and Manchester City vs Arsenal will be exciting for EPL fans this weekend with Thomas Partey and Gareth Bake among players likely to make their debuts today.

The summer transfer window slammed shut on October 5 with a number of intriguing deals being done at the last minute, and we may well see a few of the new signings making their bows in matchday five.

Thomas Partey

Arguably the most exciting signing of the whole summer, Arsenal pulled a rabbit out of the hat on deadline day with the £52.5m capture of Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.

It’s fair to say Gunners fans are pretty upbeat with their new man, and there is a good chance we will see him in action for the first time on Saturday.

If he does start, it will be something of a baptism of fire for Partey, with City away not exactly the easiest fixture to help him settle into life in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, it is no doubt the sort of game a player of his experience will relish, and he’ll be hoping it will be Partey time at the full-time whistle.

Gareth Bale

Tottenham fans have been waiting patiently for Gareth Bale’s second debut, and Sunday’s derby against West Ham could prove to be the big moment.

Since sealing his stunning return on loan from Real Madrid Bale has been working hard behind the scenes to get up to speed on his fitness.

And onlookers this week claimed he has wowed both staff and players with his desire and quality in training recently.

The most likely scenario would be for him to start on the bench against the Hammers, but with Jose Mourinho in charge anything is possible.
