The Premier League returns this weekend with Arsenal opening the day with a showdown against Sean Dyche’s Burnley side.
The Gunners grabbed all three points against Newcastle after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game. Burnley striker Ashley Barnes and Gudmundsson registered their name on the scoresheet last weekend against Southampton.
Newly promoted side Aston Villa will be looking to register their first win against Bournemouth on Saturday. Villa lost 3-1 to Spurs in the first league game of the season despite an early lead through McGinn.
Brighton will face Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham side, the Hammers got thumped 5-0 by reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.
Liverpool will play against Southampton on Saturday despite their involvement in the Super Cup final. Klopp’s side were triumphant through a penalty shootout after 120 minutes. With number one goalkeeper Alisson out due to a calf injury, second choice goalie Adrain is also a doubt after he sustained a freak injury in the Super Cup game on Wednesday. 35-year-old Andy Lonergan will likely make his debut game against the Saints.
That brings us to the “match of the day”, Premier League Champions Manchester City will be involved in a showdown against Mauricio Pochettino Spurs side. Key players to watch out for on both sides are Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling. Kane netted a brace last week while Sterling grabbed a hat trick to win the match ball.
