After another crazy Premier League week, big fantasy decisions face us all. Harry Kane is out for a month, Trent Alexander-Arnold the same. Marko Arnautovic is very possibly on his way out of West Ham, Abdoulaye Doucoure having his head turned away from Watford, and Son Heung-min on yet more international duty. Who knows what else will befall us as January goes on, but for now another gameweek is on the horizon.
At the top of the table, Liverpool host the unpredictable Crystal Palace while Manchester City will hope that Huddersfield don’t experience the same new manager bounce currently going on across at Old Trafford. Manchester United will expect three more points at home to Brighton, Tottenham will look to the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen to drive their depleted squad to victory at Fulham, while Arsenal host Chelsea in the game of the weekend on Saturday evening.
At the other end of the table, Cardiff’s trip to Newcastle looks a must-win for both. Southampton and Burnley both picked up vital wins last weekend, and will hope to build on those in respective fixtures at home to Everton and away at Watford.
