Premier League Sunday Preview

Premier League leaders Liverpool look to maintain their perfect start to the season on Sunday.

The Reds have a perfect record after five wins and a sixth would equal their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.

But to continue their run Jurgen Klopp’s men have a tough looking challenge in what is the game of the weekend as they visit Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.

And it is going to be a busy day in the capital as all four games are in London.

Manchester United travel West Ham, Wolves will face Crystal Palace and Arsenal host Aston Villa.

See below for a preview on the games, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
