Son Heung-min powers Tottenham to victory over United before arriving in UAE for Asian Cup, plus other forecasts

As the Premier League clubs return to action this weekend, we are likely to witness some more predictable results: victories for Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Ahead of this round of fixtures, Caygill has made his predictions and explained his reasoning in the photo gallery above. To move on to the next photo, click on the arrows, or if using a mobile device, simply swipe.
