We’re all warmed up for another exciting weekend in the English Premier League. The first match of the round will be played in Sheffield, where the home team will look to make an upset against the only undefeated squad in the league right now – Liverpool.
Aston Villa is hoping to escape from the relegation zone, and the home game against Burnley is certainly a good opportunity. Both Bournemouth and West Ham are riding on good streaks. Bournemouth won against Everton and Southampton in the previous two rounds, while the Hammers are coming off a huge win against Manchester United on Sunday. They also haven’t lost five straight.
Chelsea is hoping for an easy win against Brighton and moving towards the top of the table, and so does Crystal Palace against Norwich that’s full of injured players.
Tottenham didn’t start the season as they expected, and they even lost to League Two Colchester in the Carabao Cup over the week. Perhaps a win against Southampton on Saturday can bring them back some much-needed confidence.
Wolverhampton hosts Watford in a duel of the only two winless teams that are sitting at the bottom of the table. Manchester City wants to stay in touch with the league-leading Liverpool, but a game against Everton away from home could present a tough challenge, despite the fact that Everton is 14th at the moment.
Leicester is having a solid start of the season so far, and a home game against Newcastle will be another opportunity for some easy points.
However, the most anticipated game of the round will definitely be played in Manchester, where United will host Arsenal. The Gunners turned things around against Villa last week despite having 10 players for the entire second half. On the other hand, United has only won once in the previous five games, so a win on Sunday will be imperative.
