Saturday football
CRYSTAL PALACE vs FULHAM (1500)
Ninth plays tenth in a game primarily of interest to the two sets of fans. Palace were desperately unlucky to come away from Villa Park last time out with null points, having led until the 87th minute. You’d expect them to be revved up for a reversal of sorts against Fulham, who managed to squeak past lowly Luton last week. Home win.

LUTON TOWN vs WOVERHAMPTON WANDERERS (1500)
Luton may not take kindly to being called lowly, but that is precisely what they are, having secured no points on their Premier League journey to date. They could overtake their opponents with a healthy win today, but Gary O’Neil will have something to say about that. Draw.

MANCHESTER CITY vs NOTTINGHAM FOREST (1500)
Forest have made an encouraging start to the season having amassed seven points from their opening five games. But this fixture won’t, by any stretch of the imagination, add to that tally despite half of City’s first choice team being injured. Steve Cooper might want to adopt a Moyesie approach. Home win.

BRENTFORD vs EVERTON (1730)
There’s something intriguing about this game. The Toffees have just a single point to their name and sit firmly in the early season relegation zone. But they are, or should be, better than that solitary point. It’s hard to put your finger on exactly where their problem lies – they’ve got a half decent first team and a half decent manager. The Bees on the other hand have a very decent manager and will expect another three points this evening. Is there an obvious, available replacement for Sean Dyche? Don’t think so, and anyway that may not be the real problem. Home win.

BURNLEY vs MANCHESTER UNITED (2000)
Another intriguing fixture between two sides stuck firmly in the brown stuff. There can be few better times for Burnley to play Man U than now, when the visitors seem to be suffering from a marked absence of self-belief. But Burnley, too, are suffering, though it’s hard to diagnose their problem. Two pretty decent managers meet and it may be time to take a perch on the fence. Draw.


*SUNDAY*

ARSENAL vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (1400)
There’s little chance you won’t have heard about this game in recent days. Goal difference separates them and in fairness it has the makings of a good game of football. It’s hard to distinguish the two sides, so home advantage could be decisive. Home win.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs BOURNEMOUTH (1400)
How will Brighton’s Euro defeat affect them as they host a Bournemouth side that you feel has more to offer than they’ve shown so far. The Seagulls are strong – too strong for today’s opponents. Home win.

CHELSEA vs ASTON VILLA (1400)
There’s no easy game in the Premier League, so the saying goes. Pochettino may be inclined to agree with that, particularly with a mounting injury list. As, indeed, may Emery. If it weren’t for that game at Anfield, this could have been the one to watch. Home win.

LIVERPOOL vs WEST HAM UNITED (1400)
We rarely come away from Anfield with anything but a black pudding and a missing wing mirror. Liverpool will offer infinitely superior opposition than Backa Topola, but then so did Man C and Chelsea and we managed to subdue both of them for a half and come away with three points. Coufal will face another challenge from the wing in the form of Diaz, but he did reasonably well against the very impressive City fellow last week. Many others would have fallen long before he did. The early signs from Kudus are encouraging and it will be interesting to see if Moyes starts him in place of Antonio. A fresh and energetic Antonio coming on as sub after an hour would make an interesting and possibly welcome change. Pool are strong, probably too strong for us, but in Kudus, Paqueta and Ward-Prowse we possess threats of the kind we’ve not had for some years. Hope? It springs eternal. Draw.

SHEFFIELD UNITED vs NEWCASTLE UNITED (1630)
The Blades have managed one draw from their return to the top table thus far. Newcastle, surprisingly, are twelfth with two wins to date. So not much between them, on the face of it? Don’t judge a book by its cover. Away win.


*CHAMPIONSHIP*
Preston are top, Middlesboro are bottom. Who’d have expected that after seven games? Leicester and Ipswich make up the early chasing pack, while it’s as tight as ever below them with just three points separating the next 10 teams. Preston visit Rotherham (21st) today while Boro host the Saints (13th) and Millwall (11th) travel to West Brom (15th). All Saturday’s games kick off at 3.00pm. Remember that? Sunday’s highlights see Stoke hosting Hull and Cardiff making the long trip from Rhoose to Durham Tees Valley.

Re: Saturday football
Spurs had to get get two goals past 100 minutes to beat this lot, so no two games are the same.

We need to be hard working and professional and not take them lightly.

Re: Saturday football
Sheffield United are really going to take this out on the next team that plays them. I wouldn't wish to be a supporter of that team oh!

Re: Saturday football
As much as I’m loving those tossers getting smashed in style, and although we should be beating them easily, you’d be silly to take victory against them for granted and you’d be foolish not to imagine them wanting to see a reaction to this defeat and having a point to prove in their performance against us next week. Just saying.

Seven nil, can Newcastle make it to ten?

Can see all three of the promoted clubs going straight back down at this rate.

Sheff U 5 down at home to the toons.
If we can't put this lot to the sword at home next weekend then Moyes can do one.

Re: Saturday football
Alan Smith on Declan Rice;

“He’s learnt so much from Arteta in the short space of time he’s been there. Things he thought he knew but he didn’t”

No challenge from the presenter on what he meant by that. Laughable presenting.

Anyway - not sure who I want to see lose more today. Sadly Postecoglou comes across as a decent guy, whereas Arteta is a ‘trust the process’ twat.

Re: Saturday football
Josh Cullen is a decent player.
Shame Burnley couldn't get more out of their domination tonight.
ManU is garbage

Re: Saturday football
Burnley are actually enjoyable to watch, right up until they get to the 18 yard box, then it all just falls apart.

Re: Saturday football
Burnley look like an U21 team tbh..plucky enough but will it be enough unpluck Manure ???

Re: Saturday football
Another couple of awful players spotted today.. How the hell are they in the Premier league..

Taylor at Burnley.
Mc Neil at Everton.

Re: Saturday football
Manchester United's starting XI tonight must be one of the worst they've put out in the Premier league. That defence plus goalie looks awful.

i really want that lot to go down but they'll probably do just enough. Again.

1-3 Dominic Tranny Lewin

And then ref Michael Oliver manages to deny Brentford a shot at an open goal but getting in the way.

Great pass from Garner for that Calvert-Lewin goal.

Re: Saturday football
I was gonna post to say Brentford have been absolute shit but it still 1-1.

Re: Saturday football
Not seen any of the games but thats a big missed opportunity for Luton against 10 men
Off the mark at least with ONE point
10 more to match Derby's 2007/8 record
