GW-3 wraps up with a tasty fixture between Man United and Liverpool. This is probably the worst time for Erik ten Hag to face off against the Reds. Both sides are still in search of their first win with United also in the hunt for its first points.
Here are all the fixtures for GW-3:
Saturday 20th August 2022
- Tottenham vs Wolves
- Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa
- Everton vs Nottingham Forest
- Fulham vs Brentford
- Leicester vs Southampton
- Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Sunday 21st August 2022
Monday 22nd August 2022
- Man United vs Liverpool
Spurs vs Wolves
Spurs did well to hang on against Chelsea and showed their resilience with a draw. Wolves have struggled in front of goal recently so this should be straight forward business.
Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa
Decent result last time out for Palace who are off the mark. Aston Villa did well too, edging out Everton. Should be a tight game between these two.
Everton vs Nottingham Forest
The Toffees are still searching for their first points of the season, which already looks a struggle that is not helped by Gordon potentially moving on. Forest recorded a win last time out after Henderson saved a penalty.
Fulham vs Brentford
Fulham has had a fair start, unbeaten in a couple of decent draws. 3rd-place Brentford (did I really write that?) should be full of confidence after hammering a poor Man United side.
Leicester vs Southampton
Leicester never really got going against Arsenal last time out and now face a Southampton side who have also leaked goals. Could be a high-scoring game.
Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Arsenal is the team in form at the moment with Jesus already racking up goals and points. Bournemouth won’t lay down, but you’d fancy the Gunners to continue their form.
Leeds vs Chelsea
A Rodrigo brace ensured Leeds got something for GW-2, continuing a bright start. The Blues put in an impressive performance last time out against Spurs but will be frustrated that they didn’t walk away with all three points.
West Ham vs Brighton
West Ham will feel unlucky after missing a penalty against Forest (smothered by Henderson) and also have the extra headache of European Football, having played mid-week. Brighton was impressive against Newcastle and should be good value for at least a point here.
Newcastle vs Man City
Newcastle was poor against Brighton and had to rely on a few goal-line clearances and heroics from Nick Pope. Man City is powering through and should be the clear favorite here.
Man United vs Liverpool
Will Salah & Co continue to pile misery on ten Hag’s team? You wouldn’t bet against it after United’s disastrous 4-0 defeat at the hands of Brentford. However, United would go above Liverpool with a win. Could the Red Devils possibly pull it off?
