Mohamed Salah and Liverpool to pick up where they left off as Chelsea stumble again: Premier League predictions

Check out deputy sports editor Steve Luckings' predictions for this week's round of matches

With the first international break of 2018/19 out the way, the Premier League resumes with a familiar look at the top of the table as Liverpool and Manchester City lead the way.

Liverpool entered the break with a 100 per cent record, signing off with an impressive 3-0 away win at Burnley. Up next for Jurgen Klopp's side are Newcastle United, who are showing signs of revival under Steve Bruce after a difficult start to the campaign.

Champions Manchester City travel to Norwich City in Saturday's late kick off, looking to carry on their goalscoring form that saw them put four unanswered goals past Brighton & Hove Albion last time out.

Other notable games sees Quique Sanchez Flores return to the Watford hot seat after the Hornets parted ways with Javi Gracia this week. The Spaniard, who managed Watford for a season in 2015, will be given a baptism of fire on his return to English football with a red-hot Arsenal the visitors to Vicarage Road.

Ahead of the games, deputy sports editor Steve Luckings provides his predictions in the photo gallery above.
