No early Saturday game this weekend but there are six games kicking off in the traditional 3pm slot.

Chelsea head to Brentford looking to build some momentum into their Premier League campaign after a loss in the Carabao Cup final and then a narrow win over Leeds in the FA Cup.

Elsewhere, Everton should be buoyed by having some points added back onto their tally as they welcome David Moyes back to Goodison, while Fulham and Brighton go head-to-head at Craven Cottage.

Newcastle host a Wolves side who have proved tricky away customers already this season and were outstanding in their win at Tottenham last time out, while leaders Liverpool head to Nottingham Forest and are likely to have to rely on some of their talented crop of youngsters again.

Spurs also welcome Oliver Glasner’s Crystal Palace to north London, while Luton take on Aston Villa in the late Saturday game.

Sunday’s action starts with Burnley, who are now in desperation mode, welcoming Bournemouth, while it’s the Manchester derby at The Etihad as City look to keep up the pressure on Liverpool and heap some more on Erik ten Hag in the process.

The Monday Night Football sees free-scoring Arsenal head to Sheffield United as they also look to keep pace with Liverpool and City.

And everyone is in agreement over the outcome at Bramall Lane, while Liverpool get the job done at Forest and City hand United a real hiding.
