The dust from the transfer deadline day settles and there are only a few things that are certain. Arsenal sit atop the league with a perfect record. Erling Haaland is ripping apart the Premier League. Leicester City and Aston Villa are in worrying times.
Whatever team you support, there is excitement around every corner in the Premier League, for better or for worse.
Matchday six is no different.
The most heated of these games is the Merseyside Derby. Goodison Park is the host for a Liverpool side that grabbed a dramatic last-kick winner against Newcastle United midweek. Neither side is off to a perfect start. Everton is towards the bottom of the table, and Liverpool is five points behind Manchester City and seven behind Arsenal. It is early, but these are already important points.
Arsenal, for its part, has its toughest test of the season to date. It travels north to Manchester to take on a resurgent Red Devils, who picked up a second-consecutive 1-0 win away from Old Trafford. This is a historic rivalry as both teams look to build on their recent string of results. Fittingly, it is the finale of the weekend.
In between those two games that are at the extremes of the weekend docket, the Chelsea-West Ham game is one to keep an eye on. Both sides are, by their respective aspirations, struggling. Chelsea and West Ham made splashed at the transfer deadline to shore up loose ends offensively. Despite strong seasons in 2021/22, both currently are falling behind their rivals at the top.
