Stag Weekends Weekend Preview 28th October

Trick or treat? As it's Halloween weekend, we had to ask! Fortunately lads, you're in for a treat of a weekend with the sport that's in store!

Don't forget the clocks go back on Saturday night as well, which means an extra hour in bed'result! Anyway, let us run through everything that's happening this weekend…

Premier League

Let's be honest, every round of Premier League fixtures are crucial this season, and this weekend is no different! First up, Arsenal travel to rock-bottom Sunderland; as they look to leap frog Manchester City at the top of the table. The Gunners dropped two points at home to Middlesbrough last weekend and Arsene Wenger will expect his side to get back to winning ways seeing as Sunderland are still yet to register a league win this season.

Manchester City remain top of the table despite a winless run of three games in the Premier League. In fact, City have failed to win in their last six games, which is Pep Guardiola's longest run without a victory in management! They travel to the Hawthorns tomorrow to take on West Brom who will pose a difficult match as always. Guardiola will hope to have Kevin De Bruyne back fit for the match; the Belgian was missing for Wednesday's defeat to Manchester United in the EFL Cup.

Crucial Race

The dramatic Formula One season continues on Sunday with the Mexican Grand Prix. With only three races to go, Nico Rosberg can claim the title with a win this weekend and will be confident after winning at this track last season.

Lewis Hamilton kept the championship alive with a win at the US Grand Prix last week and the Mercedes driver will know that he needs a near faultless end to the season if he is to catch his teammate Rosberg.

Second Test

England will continue their Second Test Match against Bangladesh in Dhaka over the weekend, with the game finely poised.

England bowled the home side out for 220 this morning with Moeen Ali taking an impressive five-fer! Man of the match from the First Test Ben Stokes was in fine form again; taking three wickets for just 13 runs!

Bangladesh fought back and had England on 50-3 at the close of play on day one. England will need a good partnership between Joe Root and Ali when play resumes tomorrow.

Murray in Latter Stages

Andy Murray came through a grueling match against France's Gilles Simon to reach the quarter-finals of the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

Murray came from a set down to win 4-6 6-2 6-2 and will now face big-hitting American John Isner in the last eight this evening. If Murray can make it through to the final on Sunday and win, he could be in line to take world number one spot from Novak Djokovic.

Halloween

As mentioned at the top of the preview, it's Halloween weekend! Well, Halloween is officially on Monday but many will be celebrating over the weekend.

We recommend heading out over the weekend as it's always a weekend where the girls like to wear as few clothes as possible for fancy dress! Thank us on Monday.
