Liverpool vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Liverpool is heading into this match with two clean sheets after two games to start the Premier League season. They looked phenomenal against West Ham in week one and maybe played well the following week against Crystal Palace at Anfield. They may have only played two games but Liverpool is looking unbeatable right now. However, they would’ve been hoping they’d be playing a Brighton team with a little less confidence.

Last week, Brighton pulled off the biggest upset of the season, so far, with a 3-2 victory against Manchester United. It wasn’t a flukey win for the Seagulls who looked like the better team for the entire 90 minutes. They’ll have to match, if not better, that performance from last week if they want to get the same result against Liverpool

What you need to know:

  • Liverpool will still be without both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dejan Lovren.
  • Brighton has struggled greatly against Liverpool in the past. Last season, Liverpool beat them 4-0 and 5-1 in their two fixtures.

Arsenal vs West Ham United

It’s the battle of the winless at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Arsenal has received plenty of criticism for their start to the 2018/19 campaign, but to be fair they have played two of the best teams in the league this season. Against Chelsea last week they were unfortunate not to walk away with at least a point if not all three.

As for the Hammers, they’re in a similar situation to their London rivals: a new manager, a new system, and new players.

All eyes should be on this game on Saturday. Depending on the result, the alarm bells could start to ring for one of these teams.

What you need to know:

  • Jack Wilshere takes on his former team for the first time since leaving this summer.
  • West Ham hasn’t beaten Arsenal since August 2015 when they won 2-0 thanks to goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate.
  • Last season, Arsenal took maximum points away from their two games against the Hammers.

Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur

All eye on this match for some Monday action. Though early in the season Mourinho’s United need a win in this game. The media has been going all over the place and reports of feuds have been surfacing. The best way to shut up the English press is by having a good performance at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho had a strong track record against the top 6 last year.

Spurs have had a good start winning both matches this season. This match is a good gauge on how the squad is really performing.

Last season had both teams taking a win at their home fields.

What you need to know:

  • All eyes are on Pogba. The world cup winner will need to be a driving force of the United squad.
  • Harry Kane will try and repeat his fantastic season last year. This year he has already broken his weird funk of being unable to score in August.
  • Luke Shaw has come into this season with a point to prove. The fullback has spent a bunch of time of the physio table and reserve squad. Last Sunday
  • Trippier has been in fantastic form since the World Cup and scored a great free kick last matchday
  • Lukaku got off the mark last week and will be looking to get into a groove
