Premier League Saturday Preview

The Premier League returns on Saturday with Liverpool looking to maintain their perfect start to the new season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are the only side in English football to still have a 100% record and they put that on the line in the opening game of the day against Newcastle – who travel to Anfield.

Behind Liverpool, there are two other unbeaten sides left in the top-flight Manchester City and Leicester City, and they are also in action on Saturday.

Second placed City travel to Norwich in the final game of the day, whilst Leicester face a big test at Old Trafford as they face Manchester United.

High-flying Crystal Palace could move into third with victory, but they face a tough ask as they travel across the capital to face Tottenham.

Wolves are still looking for their first win of the season as they host Chelsea in one of the most anticipated games of the day.

The other matches see Brighton host Burnley, whilst Southampton travel to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United.

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.
