Premier League preview: Saturday plays host to a packed day of top-flight football

Liverpool FC v Arsenal FC - Carabao Cup Round of 16

After some Carabao Cup action during the week, where we saw a classic Liverpool vs Arsenal encounter that ended 5-5 after 90 minutes, and an away win for Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, it is time for more Premier League action.

Another great weekend of football awaits us, with most of the matches being played Saturday.


Bournemouth vs Manchester United

After a win in London against Chelsea in the cup, Manchester United will now travel to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth.

It could be a close game between the two as they both have 13 points in the league so far. However, the Red Devils will try to gain a few places and will try to recover from a poor league start.

(GMB odds - BTTS 5/7)

Arsenal vs Wolves

Not the start that Wolves wanted, but they are slowly recovering, being only three points away from 6th place. Not an easy task this weekend playing Arsenal away, who are also trying to score some points to bring them closer to the top four after a turbulent week.

(GMB odds - Wolves to win 7/2)

Aston Villa vs Liverpool

A great cup game for Liverpool on Wednesday as they beat Arsenal on penalties after a 5-5 draw. Can Aston Villa stop the current leaders and score some points to make them clear of the relegation zone, or will Liverpool put on a show of strength and keep up their good form?

(GMB odds - Liverpool to win 3-1 11/1)

Brighton vs Norwich

An important game for Norwich who are currently in 19th place. They need to pick up points as soon as possible to be clear of the relegation zone, but it will be a difficult task for them playing Brighton, who last month beat Tottenham 3-0.

(GMB odds - Brighton to win 5/7)

Manchester City vs Southampton

A replay of the cup tie on Tuesday, where City beat the Saints 3-1, who are a team that is still trying to recover from that heavy 9-0 home defeat against Leicester.

Will this be a replay of Tuesday’s game, or will Southampton fight back and achieve a good result at the Etihad Stadium?

(GMB odds - Man City to win 9-0 78/1)


Sheffield United vs Burnley

Should be a close game between the two teams with a slight advantage for Sheffield United, a team that is achieving some good results so far, like the home win against Arsenal.

The teams are currently separated by one point, which will make this an important game for both sides.

(GMB odds - Draw 11/5)

West Ham vs Newcastle

Not the best start of the season for Newcastle, who are currently in 17th place with only nine points.

West Ham will be looking for their first win since September, while Newcastle will want to escape the threat of the relegation zone as soon as possible.

(GMB odds - West Ham to win to zero 2/1)

Watford vs Chelsea

Watford are currently struggling in the Premier League, being last with only five points.


As for Chelsea, they are currently in fourth place with 20 points, the same as Leicester who are one place above them.

(GMB odds - Chelsea to win to zero 2/1)


Crystal Palace vs Leicester

The last away game that Leicester played in the Premier League was something no one was expecting; a 9-0 win over Southampton.

This Sunday they will face Crystal Palace, who are currently in sixth. Can Leicester put on another display like the one at St. Mary’s?

(GMB odds - Leicester to win 6/5)

Everton vs Tottenham

The last game of the weekend should be a close one, with Everton’s manager Marco Silva under pressure to get the team out of 16th place.

Tottenham are currently in 11th with 12 points, which highlights their disappointing start of the season. Will they be able to recover?

(GMB odds - Draw 49/20)
