Just when you think the season can't get any more exciting, the Premier League does what no other league can and pulls another rabbit out of the hat.

And with this weekend being Halloween, you can definitely rely on the Premier League for all your surprises and treats this week!

So here are our top three games you'll regret missing:

ASTON VILLA VS SOUTHAMPTON - SUN 1ST - 12:00 PM (Live on Sky Sports Box Office)

The last three games between these two teams have resulted in a total of 12 goals scored, an impressive total for two teams not known for their lethal touch.... until now maybe.

Both sides have scored 10 or more goals so far this season, with them both sitting among the top scorers in the league.

Furthermore, Villa currently occupy third position, an extraordinary achievement for a team that nearly got relegated last year.

Southampton will also be happy in seventh, a respectable position for a team that has struggleded to find consistency in where they finish in recent years.

Aston Villa come into this game off the back of a poor 3-0 defeat to newly-promoted Leeds United.

A hattrick from Leeds frontman Patrick Bamford, put an end to Villa's sparkling form and may well have ended the early season honeymoon faze the Birmingham based club were in.

A shock 7-2 triumph over last seasons winners Liverpool and a stoppage-time winner over Leicester, had many fans wondering if Dean Smith's team could launch an unexpected title push.

But if Southampton were to claim all three points this weekend, we may well see The Lions fall back into their usual fight for survival.

A surprise 2-0 win over current leaders Everton last weekend, means Ralph Hasenhüttl side haven't lost in their past four Premier League games.

Since their 5-2 thrashing from Spurs, The Saints have managed to salvage a point against Chelsea and comfortably see of West Brom, Burnely and as previously mentioned Everton.

So, in a game with a history of goals, this match could well be one of the games of the season.

MANCHESTER UNITED VS ARSENAL - SUN 1ST - 16:30 PM (Live on Sky Sports)

If I said guess this game could you? 15th vs 11th. A total of 19 goals conceded so far between the two and both managers are struggling to get the most out of recent signings.

If it was 10 years ago probably not, but in recent years, both United and Arsenal have far too often found themselves outside of the top six and even in the bottom half of the table.

This game pits two managers hungry for a win up against each other.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side come into this game in better form, despite sitting four places below their opponents.

A goalless draw to Chelsea last time out in the League and a 4-1 win over Newcastle prior to that, means United have managed to improve their form since their humiliating 6-1 loss to Tottenham last month.

Back-to-back defeats in the League for Arsenal, however, means Arteta is struggling to find any sort of form this season.

Many thought the signing of Thomas Partey from Athletico Madrid on deadline-day would make Arteta's squad a real threat this year, but so far the midfielder is yet to prove his worth.

A loss for the Red Devils could mean come that come the end of the weekend, they are only five places off the bottom of the table and just two off a relegation spot. However, a win would see them jump into the top half of the table.

For Arsenal, three points at Old Trafford this Sunday could see them shoot into the top four.

FULHAM VS WEST BROM - MON 2ND - 17:30 PM (Live on Sky Sports Box Office)

Despite coming so early on, this game could see Fulham already planning for life in the Championship next season.

The Cottagers are yet to win this year, with their best chance coming against Sheffield United earlier this month.

However, with the points shared against fellow relegation-threatened Sheffield, a loss to 17th placed West Brom could be a massive moment in the London based clubs season.

Fulham need to be beating the teams around them to stay up, but like their last season in England's top division, the club are struggling to prove their worth.

West Brom despite only sitting three places above their Monday night opponents, will probably be highly optimistic about their chances.

Having drawn both their previous games against Burnley and Brighton respectively, their season seems to be picking up momentum.

Despite no wins to their name just yet, an impressive performance against Chelsea last month, proves that Slaven Bilić's squad have the quality to fight among some of Europe's top teams.

However, all that said Fulhams display against Crystal Palace last time out, proves that they can put up a good fight and West Brom shouldn't think the game is already won.
