Premier League preview: Manchester United vs Arsenal the pick of the fixtures this weekend

Arsenal FC v Manchester United - Premier League

Carabao Cup action took centre stage in midweek, but it's back to the Premier League this weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur were casualties from the cup competition, as they were stunned by League Two Colchester United, whilst there were comfortable wins for Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Manchester United avoided being dumped out by League One Rochdale with a penalty shootout win.

With a full set of Premier League fixtures taking place from Saturday to Monday, here is our preview to all the action, including some potentially helpful tips from GIVEMEBET.

Saturday

Sheffield United vs Liverpool

Games that The Blades could only dream of a few years ago when they were in League One. Now, they are rubbing shoulders with the best team in Europe, and they'll be trying to stop them going seven for seven in the league. An unlikely task.

(GMB odds - Liverpool to win to zero 6/5)

Crystal Palace vs Norwich

Just the two points separate the teams going into the game, with Palace sitting in 12th and Norwich a few places back in 16th. The Eagles will still be kicking themselves after dropping two points very late on against Wolves last weekend, whilst Daniel Farke's men will want to bounce back from the Burnley defeat.

(GMB odds - Score draw 16/5)

Aston Villa vs Burnley

The Tom Heaton derby. The now Villa 'keeper welcomes his former team to Villa Park this weekend and will be wanting to keep a clean sheet against his previous employers. A win for the hosts could see them out of the relegation zone.

Arsenal FC v Aston Villa - Premier League

Bournemouth vs West Ham

Two teams that will be delighted with their starts to this year's campaign. Sitting sixth and fifth respectively, both sides can go into this game feeling positive and not having to worry just yet about what's over their shoulder.

(GMB odds - Over 3.5 goals 7/5)

Wolves vs Watford

Despite snatching a point last minute right at the death last weekend, the 2019/2020 campaign has been miserable so far for Wolves. Still without a league win and sitting 19th. So who's worse than that? Well, their opponents this weekend Watford, who were battered 8-0 last weekend by Manchester City.

(GMB odds - Wolves to win 10/11)

Tottenham vs Southampton

FBL-ENG-PR-LEICESTER-TOTTENHAM

Embarrassed and humiliated in the week, Spurs will want to bounce back with three points against Mauricio Pochettino's former club. Despite Tottenham's recent wobbles, not even the most optimistic Saints fans would expect a positive result away from home.

(GMB odds - Spurs to win to zero 29/20)

Chelsea vs Brighton

You'd imagine this has home banker written all over it. Despite not having the best of starts under Frank Lampard, picking up just eight points from their six games, The Blues will be strong favourites heading into this game at Stamford Bridge. Brighton, however, are just two points behind them.

(GMB odds - Chelsea to win 2-1 31/4)

Everton vs Manchester City

Not what Marco Silva would have wanted this weekend after their woeful defeat to Sheffield United last time around in the Premier League. To make matters worse? City dispatched Watford for eight in their last league game. Surely another Pep Guardiola win is coming.

Preston North End v Manchester City - Carabao Cup Third Round

(GMB odds - City to win 4-0 14/1)

Sunday

Leicester vs Newcastle

Brendan Rodgers will be feeling confident his Foxes side can extend their positive start to the season as they host struggling Newcastle. A win would see them on 14 points from seven games and inside the top four. For Newcastle, they are very much looking over their shoulders, rather than looking ahead of them.

(GMB odds - Leicester to win 3-1 14/1)

Monday

Manchester United vs Arsenal

Two of the greats in English football that are currently going through a very rough patch. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can't get much right these days, and Unai Emery still hasn't convinced the Emirates faithful. United have injury problems, Arsenal have a horrid record at Old Trafford; surely something has to give on Monday night?

(GMB odds - Arsenal to win & BTTS 7/2)
