English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 8 – 10 October 2022

Arsenal host Liverpool and Manchester United go to Everton on Sunday, with Manchester City and Chelsea at home on Saturday in the Premier League.

The English Premier League rolls along this weekend with another full fixture programme, with a Super Sunday in prospect.

A pair of scintillating clashes light up the day, with EPL leaders Arsenal hosting Liverpool in the game of the weekend.

Mikel Arteta has piloted his Gunners to seven wins from eight so far to give them a one-point edge at the top of the standings, with back-to-back victories the perfect antidote to their only defeat of the season so far.

The Reds have spluttered and stuttered so far, picking up just two wins in their bid to improve on last season’s runners-up finish under Jurgen Klopp.

A game in hand fails to provide much comfort on Merseyside, not least when city rivals Everton have nudged themselves up to the same 10-point tally as their neighbours despite their own miserable start to the campaign under Frank Lampard.

The Toffees now face a Goodison Park date with Manchester United, with Erik ten Hag’s men coming into the north west tussle battered and bruised form their derby day humiliation last weekend.

Saturday features a pair of Premier League big boys looking to press forward with home advantage.

Reigning champions Manchester City host Southampton knowing victory will, temporarily at least, hoist them above Arsenal at the summit while also leaving them as the league’s only unbeaten team.

Chelsea, meanwhile, continue their new dawn under Graham Potter with a home fixture against Wolves.

The visitors pulled the trigger on coach Bruno Lage this week, after a miserable start to the new season followed a similar end to the last, leaving the Black Country club loitering in the relegation zone.

Potter’s Blues come into the weekend in fifth position, while a win at Stamford Bridge could see them return to the EPL’s top four.

Fourth hosts third in the Saturday evening kick off, as Roberto de Zerbi coaches Brighton on his new home turf for the first time since replacing the Chelsea-bound Potter.

Third-placed Tottenham are the visitors to the Amex Stadium, with last weekend’s derby loss at Arsenal stinging Italian coach Antonio Conte ahead of his dugout reunion with countryman De Zerbi on the south coast.

Another top half contest sees Newcastle, who returned to winning ways last weekend, welcome moneyball kings Brentford to St James’ Park.

Improving fortunes are put to the test on the south coast, too, as Bournemouth put their four-match unbeaten run on the line in their home game with Leicester, who picked up their first victory of an otherwise abject season on Monday night.

Sunday also contains a capital city derby as east meets west at the London Stadium.

West Ham come into the tie off the back of only their second win of the campaign, while visitors Fulham are smarting from their Craven Cottage drubbing at the hands of Newcastle last time out.

Crystal Palace are five positions below visitors Leeds in the bottom half of the Premier League table but would go level on points with the Yorkshire club if they can pinch all three points at Selhurst Park.

And Monday could prove another stressful night for fans of promoted Nottingham Forest, who slipped to the foot of the standings off the back of their derby loss to Leicester seven days earlier.

Steve Cooper knows his job is on the line as his side welcome Aston Villa to the City Ground, with Steven Gerrard and his men breathing a little easier thanks to a sequence of three games unbeaten.
