Saturday on Game week 3 starts off with what will likely be a very entertaining fixture, and it ends with the match of the day.

Bournemouth v Manchester City

Title favourites City head to Bournemouth after leaving a few fantasy managers frustrated. City were expected to be a pretty great attacking force, but we didn’t see that against well orgainsed sides Brighton and Everton. Bournemouth play a far more open game, and it should suit the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Kun and KDB much more.

in a small surprise, Bournemouth have lost twice so far without scoring. Perhaps being the underdog will suit them, and Jermain Defoe and co will get chances to end their blank in this one.

The remaining games are:

C Palace v Swansea City.

Neither side has scored. Sounds dull but both probably find the net in this match.

Huddersfield Town v Southampton

Two wins with two clean sheets on the spin is a dream debut for the Terriers. Southampton will offer more resistance, but a low scoring game is expected.

Newcastle United v West Ham United.

Both have lost twice, and the Magpies have yet to score. West Ham will help them out with that problem, but the Hammers fire power should see them answer back. Both want the win but may just settle for getting a point.

Watford v Brighton

Brighton have yet to score and need some 1st team investment, while Watford are unbeaten and looking good. Silva is fast looking a decent manager, but it will be interesting to see how the side handles being expected to do well this week.

Manchester United v Leicester City

It’s 2 wins, 8 goals scored, and 0 conceded for the Red Devils, making them very strong favourites for the evening game. Romelu Lukaku’s all round game remains unconvincing, but the powerhouse forward is taking his chances. Meanwhile, Micki and Paul Pogba are starring.

The Foxes showed at Arsenal that they won’t make life easy for United. United are at their best on the counter, but Leicester will force them forward and can be deadly on the break themselves. It surely won’t be 4-0, and it may be a test for united.
