Arsenal and Manchester City both picked up massive wins in their previous games. Not only do these two clubs now have bragging rights over their rivals, but there is something of a cushion already. However, it is just eight games into the season. There is still much at hand.
That includes the fixtures lined up for this weekend. One of those involves Arsenal going up against a Liverpool side hungry for a result. The Reds played to a dramatic 3-3 scoreline at home a week ago against Brighton. In fact, the Seagulls are off to a strong start this season.
Regardless, the onus remains on the Liverpool trip to the Emirates. Can Jürgen Klopp and company provide Arsenal a second loss on the season?
Brighton, which rode Leandro Trossard’s hat trick to a draw at Anfield, takes on the side Arsenal vanquished, Tottenham. Antonio Conte’s side still sits in third, but seven points from the side’s last four games is not a strong ratio. This is especially true given Spurs’ ambitions in the league this season.
Finally, keep an eye out for the contest involving Everton and Manchester United. Manchester United looks to pick up the pieces after the demolition at the Etihad. Meanwhile, Everton is seven games unbeaten in all competitions, including back-to-back wins in league play. Many tipped Everton towards relegation, but Frank Lampard put together strong form from the Toffees.
