Chelsea v Arsenal - Premier League

The reality of a new football season is already sinking in, and we can only keep enjoying the games as they come.

The 6th round of games in the top flight starts on Saturday and ends on Monday night.

Here is the full schedule:

Saturday

Man Utd v Leicester

Bournemouth v Everton

Liverpool v Hull

Middlesbrough v Tottenham

Stoke v West Brom

Sunderland v Crystal Palace

Swansea v Man City

Arsenal v Chelsea

Sunday

West Ham v Southampton

Monday

Burnley v Watford

The weekend kicks off with a cracker as last season’s champions Leicester visit Old Trafford. Both teams already met in the Community Shield with Manchester United drawing blood in a narrow victory.

Given their poor form in the past days, the Red Devils are expected to have a tough encounter against the visitors.

It sure will be a great game at the end of the day.

Prediction : Manchester United to win

Bournemouth’s woes could continue as an unbeaten
Everton side comes visiting.

Just a win since the start of the season sees the host way down the table, and it doesn’t look like things are about to get better as the Merseyside’s form is only matched by league leaders Manchester City.

Prediction : Everton to win

The Reds have a tricky test when Hull City, a resilient side that has only lost twice – one narrowly, and other largely because of a red card pay Anfield a visit.

Since the shocking Burnley defeat, Liverpool are yet to lose a game, and would hope to avoid falling to another defensive strategy a former championship side plans to frustrate them with.

Prediction : Liverpool to win

Middlesbrough play host to a Tottenham side that will be without Kane, Dier and Dembele.

If that will mean anything is unknown, but the newly-promoted side will surely put up a great fight as they look forward to their 2nd win since gaining promotion.

Prediction : Tottenham to win

Stoke are still in search of that first league win, and getting it against an unconvincing West Brom side at the bet 360 stadium looks possible.

Mark Hughes job is on the line as a result of their poor start to the season, and the earlier the win comes, the better for him.

Prediction : Stoke City to win

Sunderland are another side without a win yet, and they will be giving their all against Crystal Palace at the Stadium of Light by weekend.

But it might not be enough against an Alan Pardew-led side that appears to be on the rise since the last 2 games.

Prediction : Draw

Swansea will face Manchester City once again at the Liberty Stadium, with both having clashed during the week in the English Football League cup.

It’s not very likely that the Swans will be able to prevent another loss again, as City look set to record their 10th win in 10 games this term.

Prediction : Manchester City to win

The last game for Saturday will see Arsenal and Chelsea battle it out in the London Derby. In the past 10 league games between the 2, Arsenal have never emerged on top, and it’s a record Wenger will hope to break in what could be his final season in charge.

Prediction : Arsenal to win

On Sunday, West Ham’s underwhelming campaign will either hit a stop, or continue against a Southampton side that has also won just a single game this term.

Prediction : Draw

Monday night football returns with Burnley and Watford set to fight for the points.

The Hornets have recorded vital and crucial back-to-back wins, and wouldn’t want to step down on the gas against a “small” team.

Given how they performed against West Ham and Manchester United, leaving Turf Moor with nothing less than 3 points will be a huge blow.

Prediction : Watford to win
