Premier League back with a bang after international break

The Premier League swings back into action after the international break with plenty of interesting match-ups worth keeping an eye on this weekend.

Liverpool kick things off on Saturday lunchtime as they bid to retain their 100% record at home to Newcastle United.

The Reds head into the weekend having won their opening four games of the new campaign and are long odds-on in the betting at scr888casino to make it five-in-a-row.

Naby Keita is unlikely to be fit enough to return for the home side, while Nathaniel Clyne and Alisson Becker remain on the sidelines.

Newcastle have numerous injury concerns, with Allan Saint-Maxim, Andy Carroll, Matt Ritchie, Dwight Gayle and Florian Lejeune all missing out.

Liverpool completed the double over Newcastle last season and they should run out comfortable winners in their latest meeting.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Manchester City will bid to keep up the pressure on Liverpool when they visit newly-promoted Norwich City.

Pep Guardiola’s side have taken 10 points from a possible 12 this season and should prove far too classy for the Canaries.

Manchester United are also in action on Saturday as they welcome high-flying Leicester City to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been inconsistent during the early part of the campaign and the Foxes are fancied to take at least a point from this game.

Tottenham Hotspur look a good bet to beat Crystal Palace, while Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea can battle to a draw at Molineux.

The Sheffield United versus Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion versus Burnley games also appeal as solid draw wagers.

Bournemouth and Everton meet in Sunday’s early game and the visitors are strongly fancied to continue their impressive recent form in this one.

The Toffees played well in their last outing against Wolves and should have too much firepower for the injury-hit Cherries.

Arsenal visit Watford in the day’s second match and look banker material to collect three points at Vicarage Road.

The Gunners did the double over Watford last season, winning 2-0 at home and 1-0 on the road, and may reward punters who back then to win to nil again this weekend.

The final match in the latest round of fixtures could be a cracker as Aston Villa go head-to-head with West Ham United on Monday.

The Midlands outfit have already defeated Everton at Villa Park this season, but face a West Ham side who are unbeaten in their last four outings in all competitions.

However, the home side are tough opponents on their own patch and should be capable of taking at least a point off the Hammers.
