English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 13 – 15 August 2022

London derby between Chelsea and Spurs in EPL; Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal at home, while Man Utd face banana skin.

It’s round two of the English Premier League season, as the 20 teams scrap it out for early supremacy in the EPL standings.

A London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham is a Sunday highlight.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte returns to his old Stamford Bridge stomping ground with both clubs having registered victories on the opening weekend, in an early boost to their respective top three hopes.

Manchester United endured a start firmly at the other end of the scale as they were well beaten in their Old Trafford opener.

New boss Erik ten Hag is under no illusions as to the size of his task to turn around the Red Devils, Cristiano Ronaldo and all, with Brentford their awkward west London assignment on Saturday evening.

Noisy neighbours Manchester City had no such problems as new signing Erling Haaland led them to three points in their curtain-raiser.

Pep Guardiola’s reigning Premier League champions are on home turf at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, with promoted Bournemouth the visitors.

Last campaign’s runners-up Liverpool must wait it out until Monday night to kickstart their title tilt.

Jurgen Klopp was decidedly unimpressed with his side’s opening day draw on the road, with Crystal Palace the next opponents under the Anfield lights.

Saturday also sees a quality tussle at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal registered the first three points of the EPL season last Friday night against the Eagles, with Leicester now standing between the Gunners and six points from six.

And there’s no little interest down on the south coast either, as Graham Potter and his impressive Brighton put their winning start to the test against big-spending Newcastle at the Amex Stadium.

The weekend begins with the Saturday lunchtime fixture between Aston Villa and Everton, as home coach Steven Gerrard faces his old Merseyside rivals.

And Sunday sees a Premier League homecoming for promoted Nottingham Forest, who bring top flight action back to the City Ground with the visit of West Ham.

Two more fixtures on Saturday, meanwhile, include Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium date with Leeds.

Wolves and Fulham also meet at Molineux, as the Londoners look to build on a bright start against the Black Country club, who slipped to defeat in the opening round at Leeds.
