Premier League – 5th round

Premier League is finally back after the international break and as always, I have gone through the matches I find most interesting this weekend. In the last round the big surprise sprung in Chelsea – Nottingham Forest where the guests stole all three points. Besides that it was another good day for the favourites with West Ham, Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Arsenal all winning.  

Premier League 5th round

Wolves vs Liverpool

Wolves were the best for a long time, but still ended up with a deserved loss against Palace. It will necessarily take time for newly hired O’Neil to build a new platform after the sale of players such as Moutinho, Neves, Traore, Jimenez and Nunes, and the national team break may have been what was needed. Beat Everton, but the other three have been lost. Tough away games against Newcastle and Chelsea, as well as a home game against a Villa team expected to challenge in the top 4 have been completed, and Liverpool stand with ten points out of a possible twelve. Impressive, and more to come as new players settle in. Smoked 0-3 away to Wolves at Molineux last season but are now unbeaten from their last 15 games. I think that run will be extended to 16 after this game. 

West Ham vs Manchester City

Great start to the season by West Ham, who are still unbeaten and have taken full advantage against both Chelsea and Brighton. Had full control for a long time when visiting Luton last time but were close to losing points in the frantic final minutes where Luton reduced the score before they were also cheated out of a penalty kick. James Ward-Prowse has been a revelation, and now Mohammed Kudus is also ready to make his debut from the start. City won comfortably when Haaland scored a hat trick against Fulham, but also had both referees and VAR on their side. Only two goals allowed in five games and is the only team without a loss of points. The sky blues beat West Ham with a total of 5-0 over two games last season and is a natural favourite to also trust this weekend. 

Manchester United vs Brighton

United seemed on their way to a somewhat lucky point in the big game away to Arsenal, but it ended with a 1-3 loss after hectic minutes of overtime. Finished the match with Harry Maguire and 35-year-old Jonny Evans as a centre back pairing, and Raphael Varane will not be ready for the weekend either. Rasmus Højlund is believed to get his first game from the start, while Sofyan Amrabat may also make his debut. Brighton were countered by West Ham, but took great revenge when Evan Ferguson scored a hat trick in the 3-1 win at home against Newcastle. The Irishman then became only the fourth player with a PL hat trick before the age of 19. No one has scored more goals than Brighton, who beat Manchester United both home and away last season. Hard to pick the winner here, but we should get goals and my pick is over 2,5!
