It promises to be another exciting few days in the Premier League, with a host of intriguing matches taking place over the weekend.

The standout game is undoubtedly on Saturday evening as Liverpool and Arsenal put their 100% records on the line at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have beaten Norwich City and Southampton in their first two matches, but the Gunners are sure to present a much sterner assignment.

Victories over Newcastle United and Burnley have left Arsenal as the only other side in the top flight with a perfect record and they will be eager to hang onto that this weekend.

Liverpool are rated as 1.49 favorites in the online betting to win the game, but it would be no surprise to see the visitors pick up at least a point.

Manchester United are also in action on Saturday as they go head-to-head with Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have picked up four points from a possible six and have looked much improved in their two games to date.

They demolished Chelsea 4-0 on the opening weekend, before recording a 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers last Monday.

Palace drew with Everton in their first game before slipping to a disappointing defeat at Sheffield United and another difficult afternoon is on the cards against United.

Chelsea kick-off Saturday’s action with a tricky-looking visit to newly-promoted Norwich City.

The Blues are yet to win a competitive match under manager Frank Lampard and they will be desperate to put that right at Carrow Road.

However, Norwich were impressive against Newcastle last weekend and odds of 3.97 in the sports betting online for the game to finish as a draw looks great value.

Brighton & Hove Albion v Southampton, Sheffield United v Leicester City and Watford v West Ham United complete Saturday’s line-up and all three games look decent draw bets.

The latest round of games start on Friday evening as Aston Villa take on Everton.

Villa are yet to pick up a point following their return to the top flight, while the Toffees are unbeaten after two matches and a narrow away win could be on the cards in this one.

Reigning champions Manchester City are in action on Sunday as they make the long trip south to face Bournemouth. City have never been beaten by the Cherries and this should be a banker away win.

Tottenham Hotspur are also strongly fancied to pick up three points at home to Newcastle, while Wolves can see off Burnley at Molineux.
