Premier League Match Day 4-Top 6 Previews

Only three matches gone but the table is starting to take shape. Liverpool are getting all the press attention but I would argue that Spurs have made the strongest start and.Chelsea look equally as impressive. Arsenal and Manchester United have left themselves a bit to do if they want to at least make the top 4 and even the imperious Manchester City dropped unexpected points last week.
What will Match Day 4 bring us.

Leicester v Liverpool

This is always a tough match for Liverpool and Claude Puel the Leicester manager has an excellent record against the Reds, having lost only once in seven meetings with various clubs.
Both teams have started the season well and will be playing with confidence. The most important detail of this game though is Jamie Vardy, he loves scoring against Liverpool but will miss the match as he serves the last of his three match suspension. I think that with Leicester missing Vardy's cutting edge and the option to turn the Liverpool defence gone, the Liverpool midfield will end up bossing this game and easing themselves to the three points.
Score prediction 0 -2

Chelsea v Bournemouth

Both teams have made bright starts to the season and although Bournemouth have managed to upset Chelsea a couple of times in the last few seasons I can't see that happening again.
Chelsea's new more attacking style of play puts them on the front foot. This will allow them to dominate the match in terms of possession and territory. The only worry for Chelsea is their lack of a cutting edge.Maybe Moratta will come good!
Score prediction 1-0

Manchester City v Newcastle United

This looks to me, to be the most one-sided match of the weekend. Manchester City will be pumped up and eager to make up for the dropped points of last weekend, whilst Newcastle seem to be in disarray. They received very little investment over the summer, have made a poor start to the season and were dumped out of the Carabao Cup in midweek.
I can only see one winner.
Score prediction 4-0

Cardiff v Arsenal

Arsenal picked themselves up off the floor last weekend to win a very open game against West Ham. At the opposite end of the scale Cardiff have been dour and defensive this season.
This will play into Arsenal's hands, and they can look to dominate possession. I think Arsenal will run-out comfortable winners.
Score prediction: 0-3

Burnley V Manchester United

I can't remember the last time United lost three.on the spin and I don't know if it has ever happened to Mourinho. Last season I would of said that if you're short on confidence,  Burnley is the last place you would want to go
However this season Burnley have looked unexpectedly fragile and I feel United will, in controversial circumstances, stop the rot and pick up the three points.
Score prediction:0-1

Watford v Spurs

This promises to be a great  match between two in from teams. Both teams have started the season with three straight wins, Spurs of course, ended up cruising to victory at Old Trafford.
I think Watford though are a better team than many give them credit for and will get Sondheim the game.
Score prediction: 2-2
