This is it! Just when our friends and family were getting used to spending time with us on weekends again, the international break is over and the Premier League is back. Here’s what’s on today’s menu for your viewing pleasure.
Klopp has said that Coutinho will not make the squad, but both teams are blessed with tons of firepower and I don’t expect either manager to be conservative. Who will prevail in this battle of the big guns?
Leicester vs Chelsea
Fantasy managers will welcome Edin Hazard back into action. Which side will emerge victorious in this clash between recent champions?
Everton vs Tottenham
Now that August is over will Harry Kane find the net? Will Wayne Rooney be able to set aside the distractions in his personal life and continue in his vein of form?
Arsenal vs Bournemouth
Oxlade-Chamberlain is gone and Sanchez is reported to be disgruntled and out of shape. Can Arsenal find a way to bounce back from their dismantling at the hands of Liverpool to redeem themselves in front of their home fans?
Southampton vs Watford
These two teams are unbeaten and have identical records. I’m betting that Watford hands Soton its first defeat today.
Brighton vs West Brom
Brighton hasn’t scored yet, and the Baggies have only registered three goals. Although on paper this match shapes up as a defensive struggle, I’m wagering we see goals. But I’d say West Brom are more likely than Brighton.
Stoke are typically pretty stingy at home, but United boasts the league’s hottest attack. Can United best Stoke to remain the league’s only team with a perfect record?
Pour a drink, pull up a chair, and let’s discuss all the action in the comment’s below.
