After the September international break, the Premier League returns in a huge way. We may not have a traditional derby like Arsenal against Manchester United from just before the hiatus. However, there are some key matchups among teams toward the top of the fledgling Premier League table.
On Saturday, Manchester City looks to create a gap with the pack of four teams on 10 points after four games. City, which has a perfect four wins from four games, travels to West Ham United. West Ham’s only dropped points came in a draw on the opening day at Bournemouth. Since then, the Hammers defeated both Chelsea and Brighton comfortably.
At the same time, Manchester United has a key game against the Seagulls of Brighton. The squabble between Erik ten Hag and Jadon Sancho is taking the headlines at Old Trafford. However, with two losses already, the Dutch manager must right the injury-laden ship. Brighton is just behind those teams on 10 points, so it is looking to keep pace toward the top.
Rounding out the action on Saturday, Brentford travels to a struggling Newcastle side. After an opening-day win, Newcastle has lost three games in a row. Manchester City, Liverpool and Brighton dealt blows to Eddie Howe’s club in an early season struggle. Brentford may only be on six points, but Thomas Frank’s side is unbeaten in its four games.
