This week's matches.
Manchester United v Leicester (Saturday 14th September)
Norwich v Manchester City (Saturday 14th September)
Bournemouth v Everton (Sunday 15th September)
Watford v Arsenal (Sunday 15th September)
Manchester United v Leicester
United are no higher than eighth in the standings and their only victory came at home to Chelsea (4-0) on the opening weekend. Since then they played out 1-1 draws away to Wolves and Southampton either side of a shock 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace. Daniel James has 3 goals for Manchester United whilst Martial and Rashford have 2. No other player has found the net for United in the league this season.
Leicester have made a very solid start, unbeaten with two wins and two draws and they are are third in the early season standings. They started with draws at home to Wolves (0-0) and away at Chelsea (1-1) before a 2-1 win at Sheffield United and 3-1 victory at home to Bournemouth. Jamie Vardy has scored 3 of Leicester's 6 league goals, 3 other players have 1.
United won this fixture 2-1 last season and they also won 1-0 at Leicester but Jamie Vardy, a player who is no longer involved with international football, has been in good form and fresh from a break he is taken to open the scoring here.
Norwich v Manchester City
Norwich are second from bottom with a record of 1 win and 3 defeats and last time out they went down 2-0 at West Ham. In their most recent home game Norwich lost 3-2 to Chelsea whilst their only win so far came at home to Newcastle (3-1). Teemu Pukki has bagged five of their six goals so far.
City are in second spot 2 points behind Liverpool with a record of 3 wins and 1 draw. They scored 4 unanswered goals at home to Brighton last time out including a brace from Aguero. Away from home this season City crushed West Ham 5-0 and they were 3-1 winners at Bournemouth.
Aguero has scored 6 league goals for City whilst Sterling has found the net 5 times and slight preference is for Sterling who nearly always starts for City.
Bournemouth v Everton
Bournemouth took 4 points from their first 2 games but their 2 most recent outings ended in defeat, 3-1 at Leicester and 3-1 at home to Manchester City. They did win 2-1 at Villa in Week 2 and their opening home game saw them pegged back late on by Sheffield United in a game which finished all square at 1-1. Harry Wilson has scored twice for Bournemouth, King and Callum Wilson have 1 a piece.
Goals had been scarce for Everton in their early season matches but last time out they edged a 5 goal thriller against Wolves at Goodison to claim their second win of the season. Richarlison scored the first goal early doors and the winner on 80 minutes and Iwobi also opened his account for the season. The only other time Everton have found the net came in a 1-0 home win over Watford when Bernard struck early.
This fixture finished 2-2 last season with all the goals coming in the second half, Everton won the return on Merseyside 2-0.
Bournemouth are struggling to keep clean sheets and a chance is taken on Iwobi opening the scoring for the visitors.
Watford v Arsenal
Watford have just one point against their name after finally opening their account with a 1-1 draw at Newcastle last time out. They remain bottom of the log after defeats in their first three matches, 3-0 to Brighton, 1-0 at Everton and 3-1 at home to West Ham. Hughes opened the scoring early at Newcastle and Andre Gray scored their only other goal so far.
The Gunners came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Spurs at The Emirates in their most recent outing. Prior to that they lost 3-1 at Liverpool but they did start with back to back wins, 1-0 at Newcastle and 2-1 at home to Burnley. Aubameyeng has scored 3 of Arsenal's 6 league goals so far, Lacazette has 2 and Torreira 1.
Arsenal won both head to heads last season, 1-0 at Watford where Aubameyeng scored the decisive goal early on and they also won 2-0 on home turf. Aubameyeng gets our vote here.
