Premier League Form Guide: Arsenal looks to heed Liverpool lessons

Though winless in six Premier League meetings with Liverpool, Arsenal's eight-game unbeaten run suggests an epic is in store for Saturday.

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season faces a tough test this weekend as Jurgen Klopp's side travel to Arsenal on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City is also looking to make it 11 games without defeat when Southampton travels to the Etihad Stadium, while Chelsea hosts Crystal Palace.

Elsewhere, strugglers Huddersfield Town and Fulham face a relegation six-pointer at the John Smiths' Stadium.

BOURNEMOUTH V MANCHESTER UNITED

Manchester United will hope to banish its troubles on the road against Bournemouth as it looks to claim a third win in eight matches away from Old Trafford.

United has won its last two Premier League visits to the Vitality Stadium, but the Cherries are unbeaten in six league match at home and have Callum Wilson in fine form. The striker has five goals and four assists in 10 games in 2018-19.

CARDIFF CITY V LEICESTER CITY

Leicester City will attempt to refocus on football when it takes on Cardiff City for the first time since March 2013.

Leicester has prevailed in six of their last eight games against promoted sides but is winless in four trips to Saturday's opponent, which is chasing consecutive home victories.

EVERTON V BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

Expect plenty of second-half action at Goodison Park given seven of Everton's last eight goals have been scored after the break, with Marco Silva's substitutions proving particularly crucial.

Brighton and Hove Albion arrives on Merseyside looking to extend its winning run to four matches, but the Seagulls will have to do something they have never done before having lost four and drawn two of their six visits.

NEWCASTLE UNITED V WATFORD

Newcastle United remains one of two sides without a win this season and history does not offer much hope, the Magpies having lost their last four meetings against Watford.

Andre Gray will look to extend his scoring record against Newcastle to three matches as Watford will try to add to the seven points it has already won on the road — two more than it had earned from the previous 48 available away from home.

WEST HAM V BURNLEY

Sean Dyche takes his Burnley side to the London Stadium having never lost to Manuel Pellegrini, the Clarets boss winning one and drawing the other when the Chilean led Manchester City in 2014-15.

The Hammers have won five of their eight Premier League meetings with Burnley but have dropped more points from winning positions (eight) than any other side this season.

ARSENAL V LIVERPOOL

Expects goals at Emirates Stadium as Arsenal welcomes unbeaten Liverpool. The past five matches between the sides have produced 27 goals – an average of 5.4 per game.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has both scored and assisted in each of his last three Premer League games against Arsenal – no player has ever done this in four consecutive matches.

Arsenal goes into the clash having not been ahead at half-time in any of its 10 matches this season. If games finished after 45 minutes, the Gunners would be 17th in the table.

WOLVES V TOTTENHAM

After impressing in the opening weeks of the season, Wolves have lost back-to-back matches ahead of Tottenham's visit to Molineux, with Nuno Espirito Santo's side failing to score in both those games – it has never failed to score in three successive matches under the Portuguese boss.

Spurs have thrived on the road in 2018-19, winning 71 per cent of their points away from home – only Crystal Palace (75 per cent) and Newcastle United (100 per cent) have a higher percentage.

Harry Kane will hope to continue that run by adding to the 25 goals he has scored against newly promoted sides, six more than any other player.

MANCHESTER CITY V SOUTHAMPTON

Manchester City will hope to record a seventh consecutive clean sheet for the first time in its entire history when Southampton visits the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

City has won seven of its past nine Premier League meetings against the Saints, with both of last season's clashes being decided by injury-time winners – Raheem Sterling in the home game and Gabriel Jesus away.

CHELSEA V CRYSTAL PALACE

Maurizio Sarri can equal Frank Clark's record of going unbeaten in his first 11 Premier League games if Chelsea can beat Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge, Clark achieving the feat with Nottingham Forest in 1994.

Palace has won two of its last three visits to Chelsea, though, and another on Sunday would see the team win two London derbies in the same season for the first time since 1997-98.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN V FULHAM

Bottom club Huddersfield Town will be buoyed by the fact that Fulham has lost its last six Premier League matches in Yorkshire, its last success coming against Leeds United in April 2002.

Goals have been hard to come by for the Terriers this season, and if they fail to score on Monday it will be an eighth home game without a goal – equalling Manchester City's record between January and May 2007.
