Bournemouth v Manchester City
Pep Guardiola and his City players have already had a jolly on the South Coast this season, beating Brighton 2-0 on the opening weekend. The title contenders will be beside the seaside again this weekend with a trip to Bournemouth, and they’ll be beside themselves if they don’t leave with a victory against the Cherries. Eddie Howe’s men have endured a disappointing start to the campaign with two defeats from two and it doesn’t look like it’s about to get any easier for them.
Manchester United v Leicester City
United fans might already be dreaming of the title after a blistering start to the season, but José Mourinho’s having none of it (at least that’s what he wants us to think; it’s impossible to tell what’s going on in that mind of his). The Red Devils could have their hands full against Leicester, though. Jamie Vardy and his pals have shown flashes of brilliance so far this season – particularly during their opening defeat to Arsenal – and will pose a major threat on the counter at Old Trafford.
West Bromwich Albion v Stoke City
Once upon a time this was one of the Premier League’s less glamorous fixtures, a kind of budget El Clasico, if you will. But not anymore. These Midlands rivals have been rejuvenated in recent times under coaches Tony Pulis and Mark Hughes, and these days they’re playing the type of footy that has supporters up off their seats, spilling their tea all down their fronts. Both teams will see this as an opportunity to pick up points, so expect a full-blooded battle.
Liverpool v Arsenal
Charlie George in the Cup final; Michael Thomas right at the death; Robbie Fowler’s quick-fire hat-trick… this epic rivalry has provided us with a sackful of memorable moments – and you should expect even more on Sunday when these sides meet in a hugely anticipated Anfield showdown. Can Klopp’s stars keep pace with the Premier League leaders, or are the Wengerboys ready to bounce back from their defeat at Stoke and leave Merseyside with the spoils?
