It’s another English Premier League weekend and another big match between two title contenders: On Matchday 7 it will be Liverpool (14pts) hosting Manchester City (13pts) in an intriguing battle between two teams off to strong starts this season. Liverpool is undefeated in all competitions (7-0-2), while Man City is coming off a Champions League loss to PSG in what’s been a grueling week.
Chelsea (13pts) will look to get themselves ahead on Saturday againt Southampton (4pts), while Manchester United (14pts) couldn’t do better than a 1-1 draw at home against Everton (14pts), which remains even on points with the Red Devils.
Another fascinating clash will see Brighton (13pts) host Arsenal (9pts) with a four-point lead in the table. A dream start (4-1-1) could continue to get better for Brighton, but it comes up against an Arsenal team that has won three straight matches.
The 9 a.m. ET Sunday slate will feature three matches that are evenly matched on paper. Crystal Palace (6pts) is improving with every weekend under Patrick Vieira and will look to prove it against stumbling Leicester City (7pts). Tottenham (9pts) will be desperate to stem a three-game losing skid when it welcomes always-competitive Aston Villa (10pts). And Brentford (9pts) hopes to continue a surprising start to its Premier League adventure against fellow London side West Ham (11pts).
