Will Chelsea slip up against Crystal Palace like they did last season?
The Premier League makes a timely return this weekend, with a couple of teams still searching for their first win of the season.
Burnley are 19th in the table after a slow start to life in the top flight although Sean Dyche’s side have an opportunity to get that opening victory when they face an in-form West Ham side at Turf Moor.
Similarly, Newcastle United won’t have many better chances to register three points although Leicester have demonstrated they can mix it with the best teams in the division.
Manchester City and Tottenham get the weekend party started at the Etihad Stadium with the champions big favourites to be a Spurs, while Arsenal are also a short price to beat Hull and the same applies to Everton at home to Aston Villa despite the Toffees struggling to accrue many points at the moment.
Southampton face Sunderland, while QPR kick off against Liverpool on Sunday before Stoke City meet Swansea. The final game of the “weekend” pits Manchester United at The Hawthorns for a tough match against West Brom.
