Premier League will return this weekend after taking two weeks break to pave way for the International matches. The biggest clash will be between Tottenham and Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday. Other top six sides will not be so worried about their next fixtures apart from Manchester United who travel to face Watford. Arsenal will also face Newcastle away, Chelsea play Cardiff at home while Man City welcomes Fulham at Etihad. Today, we are looking at six teams posing biggest aerial threat in 2018/19 season.
6. Wolves – 183.4cm Avg. Height
Premier League new boys Wolves occupy 11th place on the table with 5 points. The yellow army has won one, drawn 2 and lost the other. This is not a bad return for a promoted side. Their biggest achievement so far is getting a valuable point against Champions Manchester City at home. Teams facing them must be aware of the massive threat they pose, especially in set-pieces. They are the 6th tallest side in the League with an average height of 183.4cm.
5. Man United – 183.5cm Avg. Height

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho sometimes likes using the height in his team to bully opponents into submission. This is because his team is the second tallest in the top six with an average height of 183.5cm. However, this coming weekend, they will come against the tallest team in the League by far. This is likely to be a game of height. The question is who will rise to the occasion.
4. Chelsea – 183.6cm Avg. Height
— Chelsea FC – #StayHomeSaveLives (@ChelseaFC) September 11, 2018
Chelsea is the tallest top six side in Premier League with an average height of 183.6cm. Manchester United is the closest giant behind them with 183.5cm. However, the Blues are only third in the League. Maurizio Sarri must expect some tough challenges especially away from home soon. Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge will not be such a serious problem for them this weekend.
