Stag Weekends Weekend Preview 12th August

It's back! The Premier League is back! I'm not too sure how many weeks it has been since the Premier League finished, but it feels like an eternity!

Throw in the Olympic Games and the final Test between England and Pakistan; and you have one hell of a weekend. Let us preview it for you just here…

Premier League Returns

It's time for all the talk to finish and for the action to return. After a summer full of managerial and player changes it's time to see how the teams will shape up!

Champions Leicester kick-off the action on Saturday lunchtime with an away trip to Hull. The Foxes begin life without influential midfielder N'Golo Kante, but have managed to hold on to Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez (for now) so will be confident of starting their title defence with a win over managerless Hull.

The Pep Guardiola era begins at Manchester City Saturday evening against Sunderland who will be playing under the stewardship of David Moyes for the first time. Another managerial debut is set to take place at Dean Court Sunday lunchtime as Bournemouth host Manchester United and Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal host Liverpool in the late kick-off Sunday. Will Arsene Wenger be able to get off to a good start in what could be his last game as Gunners boss? Wherever you look, there are mouth-watering games to watch this weekend!

Olympics Continues

The Rio Olympic Games have already been a fantastic occasion so far with some incredible achievements'especially from a British point of view! And this weekend, the eagerly anticipated athletics events begin!

Here's hoping that some more medals can be won for Great Britain over the weekend, as we currently sit in fourth position in the medal table!

Final Test Finishes

The fourth and final Test is well under way between England and Pakistan at the Oval. England posted a modest score of 328 in the first innings; it could have been a much lower total had it not been Moeen Ali's outstanding century knock at the tail end.

Pakistan are currently batting in their first innings and looks as though they will surpass England's total, with Asad Shafiq and Younus Khan well set.

With the weather set to be good for the weekend, a result in the match is likely and England know that will have to find a way to win the match if they want to win the series!
