Manchester United will be looking to end their recent losing streak with an arduous trip to Fulham. Erik ten Hag is under increasing pressure and could use three points in the early Saturday kickoff at Craven Cottage to satisfy his supporters.
Brentfordwill host West Ham Unitedin one of the five kickoffs at 15:00 GMT. Thomas Frank has put behind him a bad run with two consecutive victories, both clean sheets. They beat Chelsea last time at Stamford Bridge. The Hammers ended a winless streak of three games midweek by beating Arsenal 3-1 in the Carabao Cup.
Burnley is hoping to escape the relegation zones this weekend, when they face Crystal Palace. Clarets are on a four-match losing streak, while Palace is also winless in their last three games after consecutive defeats by Newcastle and Spurs.
The recent improvement in Everton will be tested this weekend when Brighton visits. Toffees are atop the league table after three victories in five games. But Roberto De Zerbi and his team will be a tougher challenge. Everton won 5-1 over the Seagulls at the Amex last season, but they have been less consistent at Goodison Park in the past than when playing on the road.
This Saturday, one of the more predictable matches will take place at the Etihad. Man City will host Bournemouth after a 3-0 victory in the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford. Last weekend the Cherries won their first game of the year, but Andoni iraola needs divine intervention to bring anything back from their trip north.

Sheffield United is the only team in the league that has not yet won. Although the Blades sit at the bottom of their table, they will be looking forward to Saturday’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers to help them add more points to their tally. The visitors, Gary O’Neil’s, are on a good run, but they’ll be without the important Pedro Neto when they travel to Bramall Lane.
The late match on Saturday is the most thrilling of the entire weekend. Newcastle will travel to Arsenal in order to put their midweek loss behind them. On Wednesday night, the Magpies had a more successful evening. They beat Man Utd at Old Trafford 3-0 to snap a 2-game losing streak. Man City, Liverpool or Spurs could all be waiting for the Gunners to slip up at St James’ Park.
The day begins with the Midlands match between Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. This clash will take place at City Ground. Steve Cooper’s team is in trouble as they are yet to win a match in their last six, but have managed four draws. Villa, on the other hand, has a completely different form, as Unai Emery’s team have won 5 of their 6 matches in any competition.
Liverpool has won four matches in a row since the break. They reached the Carabao Cup quarter-finals midweek after beating Bournemouth. This Sunday will mark the first Premier League match at Kenilworth Road, as Luton Town is scheduled to play. The Hatters are hoping to make a lasting impression and a remarkable victory.
Pochettino returns to North London on Monday night to bring a thrilling end to Gameweek 11. Table-toppers Tottenham will be welcoming Pochettino. The Argentine is bringing his Chelsea team across London hoping to inflict a league defeat on his former club.
