This has something of the David and Goliath about it, to borrow from the Old Testament. Goliath should be too strong, of course, but league games after a European away day aren’t always a given. Speaking ahead of the game, David Wagner said, “We want to pull them down to our level and then neutralise their offensive abilities.” Such insight, such honesty. Let’s hope they succeed. Away win.

These teams are the bread of a West Ham sandwich. Neither side has started the season well and both will be looking to boost their league standing today. That should make for an open, entertaining game for anyone that may be watching. Draw.

Roy Hodgson knew what he was taking on and this will be as great a test as any for his new charges. Palace have only one fit striker, someone called Ladapo, who has not so far played a game for the first team. Damage limitation is the name of the game, but it’ll be no surprise if we see a rugby score after 90 minutes. Home win.

The Saints have had real trouble scoring goals and have only scored in one game so far this season. No prizes for guessing who their opponents were then. A clean sheet at the Britannia will be their priority today, which could make for a less than thrilling encounter. Draw.

The Baggies are another team that’s struggled to find the back of the net. No such worries for Watford, who have won all their away games – but shipped six at home to Man City. There are worse games to whet the neutral’s appetite. Draw.

This is a genuine opportunity to put our season into gear and climb a few places up the table – and the first of four games that we should win. And it’s exactly the sort of game that we will need to win if mid-table security is to be achieved. There are many who will have aspired to greater things than that at the start of the campaign, but that’s the reality. Swansea have scored in only two league games so far, but have improved their defence since last year. So we can expect to face a well-organised and disciplined side. Antonio should be back in the starting line-up, while Lanzini may make the bench. We’re the stronger team, on paper, and have home advantage. All eyes on tactics. Home win.

CHELSEA vs MAN CITY (1730 ko)
The defending champions take on many people’s favourites for the title this year in a fine ending to the day’s Premier League line-up. City have proved they can still win without Aguero, but his absence is certainly a blow. Chelsea would have been equal on points with City if they hadn’t messed up against Burnley on the opening day. They are a strong team that seems little diminished by Costa’s departure. I have a feeling they’ll sneak this. Home win.

Is what that banner says at Newcastle. Addressed to Rafa I think.

Re: Saturday football
Yep, man city are a quality outfit. Joy to watch at times.

Thought the Brighton piers played well at the haemorrhoids and deserved a draw. Hughton got em organised with a good mindset.

Fat Spanish waiter V the German Gurner just kicked off.

Re: Saturday football
Many new players needing to gel, sigurdsson looks unfit, have to think it will come good for them at some point Though. They looked out of ideas but not as bad as us.

So we are every bit as good as Everton.

Re: Saturday football
We have a better squad over all but there are critical gaps in it that bring our performances down. That and a manager who thinks tactics are white mints in a plastic tub.

Re: Saturday football
Good win and performance by Burnley. Their goal was a well worked team effort.

We'll do well to get a point up there in a couple of weeks. We have a better squad than Dyche though so there is still a chance of a win.

As for Koeman what has got into him. Three consecutive PL seasons with over 60 points each time and now Everton are finding life difficult.

Re: Saturday football
Burnish ahead at Everton. Impressed with how they’ve played, Dyche done a good job there. A team in claret and blue playing some decent football.

Re: Saturday football
Arsenal currently 2-0 up against Brighton. If they could bag another two we'd go up above the seagulls.

I notice that Koeman has benched Rooney for Everton home to Burnley. Leaves Siggurdson free to play his midfield role of choice.

Re: Saturday football
Saw the second half and the score flattered Chelsea.
About 3 would have been right
Presume Man City will make another try for Sanchez in January offering Arsenal Sterling.
