Sunday Premier League Preview

Champions Manchester City, Manchester United and Watford all have the chance to make it two wins from two at the start of the Premier League season on Sunday.

City opened up with an impressive win over Arsenal and they begin their home campaign against Huddersfield – who are looking to avoid back to back defeats after losing to Chelsea last week.

United travel to the South Coast to take on Brighton, looking to back-up their opening win over Leicester.

The other game on Sunday sees Watford travel to Burnley – following on from their win over Brighton next week.

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