Manchester City too good for Chelsea, Liverpool keep pace with win at Bournemouth: Premier League predictions

Wins for Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur also expected in this week's predictions

Premier League matches are coming thick and fast, with the latest round of fixtures arriving just days after the midweek games.

Bournemouth host Liverpool in the early kick-off on Saturday (4.30pm UAE), before Arsenal welcome Huddersfield Town, Brighton & Hove Albion head to Burnley, and Southampton travel to Cardiff City. Manchester United will take on Fulham, while Crystal Palace travel across London to face West Ham United (all at 7pm).

In the first of two late games on Saturday, champions Manchester City take on Chelsea in the blockbuster clash of the round at 9.30pm, before Leicester City host Spurs at 11.45pm.

There is just one game on Sunday, with Newcastle United facing Wolverhampton Wanderers at 8pm, while Everton host Watford on Monday at midnight.
