Premier League Saturday Preview

The only two Premier League sides with 100% records meet on Saturday as top-of-the-table Liverpool take on Arsenal.

Unai Emery’s takes his team to Anfield looking to continue their fine form, but will know it will take a big effort to overcome Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The opening game of the day sees Frank Lampard’s Chelsea travel to newly promoted Norwich, still looking for his first win in the Blues hot-seat.

Manchester United have enjoyed their start to the new season and they will be hosting, thus far winless, Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Another two teams without a win to their names so far this term are Watford and West Ham, and they clash at Vicarage Road.

There is also an early South Coast derby clash, as Brighton welcome Southampton to the AMEX Stadium.

Newly promoted Sheffield United are looking for back-to-back wins at Bramall Lane as they host Leicester City.

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.
