After Liverpool dropped their first points of the Premier League season at Old Trafford last Sunday, they will look to start another winning streak this Sunday when they host Tottenham in the most intriguing fixture of the weekend. By then they may be under pressure, should a victory for Manchester City – at home to Aston Villa – have reduced their lead at the top to three points.
The Premier League weekend actually kicks off on Friday night, when the latest test of Leicester’s ambitions unfolds away at Southampton. On Saturday, Everton travel to Brighton, Watford look to secure three valuable points at home to Bournemouth, West Ham host Sheffield United, and Chelsea look to follow their superb win away at Ajax with another on the road at Burnley.
Sunday’s earliest fixture sees Newcastle host Wolves; later on, Arsenal are at home to Crystal Palace, and Manchester United visit Norwich.
