ARSENAL VS NEWCASTLE UNITED
Arsenal finally tasted defeat at the hands of an old foe. Liverpool dominated the game from start to finish, but it’s just another lesson for Arsenal and it should not affect them too much. Eddie Howe tested positive for Covid-19 and therefore this could be his managerial debut for the Magpies who played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bretford in their last game.

BRENTFORD VS EVERTON
Brentford scored 3 goals in their last game against Newcastle but also conceded thrice. They will need to sort out some of their defensive issues, but going forward they just seem to click.

Leicester were rather unconvincing as they lost 3-0 to Chelsea at home in their last game. We all know that the possess quality but they just can’t find the form to deliver week in week out.

MANCHESTER CITY VS WEST HAM UNITED
City put on a trade mark performance as the comfortably saw of Everton 3-0. West Ham’s fine run of form finally came to an end as they lost 1-0 to Wolves. It should be no cause for concern though as they are definitely one of the favorites to finish in a top 6 spot this season.

CHELSEA VS MANCHESTER UNITED
What a way to end of the weekend. Chelsea surely make winning look easy. They barely broke a sweat as they defeated Leicester 3-0 at the King Power stadium. Man United lost 4-1 to Watford in a disappointing performance. Ole is not at the wheel anymore. Michael Carrick is the interim manager for the time being. Chelsea have the opportunity to blast a wounded United out of the park in the last game of this match week.
ONE TO WATCH: TIMO WERNER PREDICTION: 2-0
WHO SHOULD YOUR FANTASY CAPTAIN BE?
It’s not possible to ignore Mané’s performances much longer. Mo Salah is certainly tearing it up at the moment, but Mané is certainly doing his bit. He is the second top scorer after Salah. He is facing his old club Southampton this weekend and would be relishing the chance of catching up on Mo with a couple of goals.
Only five players have scored 5 goals in a Premier League game.
