Premier League football returns following the international break this weekend, as all 20 teams will be in action. Below, we will run through the fixtures taking place this weekend, and the best tips for the matches.
Watford vs Liverpool
The Premier League weekend gets underway with Liverpool’s visit to Vicarage Road. The Reds lost on their last visit to Watford, which ended their 44-match unbeaten run. However, Liverpool had won the last eight before that 3-0 defeat. They should get maximum points this weekend to move to the top of the Premier League.
Aston Villa vs Wolves
A huge Midlands derby also takes place in the Premier League on Saturday. Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back from defeat against Spurs last time out, while Wolves are looking for a fourth win in five. Villa have beaten Wolves just once in their last seven meetings at Villa Park, we will side with an away victory on Saturday.
Pick: Wolves @ 5/2 with BetXchange.
Leicester City vs Manchester United
Leicester and Manchester United will both be looking for a win to improve their chances of Champions League football. Leicester have won their last two meetings against the Red Devils in all competitions, while United have lost just once in 15 visits to the King Power in the league. An away win could be the best bet, as Leicester are winless in four.
Manchester City vs Burnley
The home banker of the weekend comes at the Etihad, as Manchester City have a dominant record against Burnley. City have won their last four home games against Burnley 5-0, while Burnley have scored just once in the last eight meetings. Another big win for City looks the best bet.
Norwich City vs Brighton
Brighton are sailing high in the Premier League, and could move into the top-four with a win this weekend. The Seagulls have won both previous Premier League matches against the Canaries, while Norwich have failed to score more than once in their last 25 top-flight fixtures.
Southampton vs Leeds
Leeds have won more Premier League fixtures against Southampton than any other club. The Saints are yet to win in the league this term, while Leeds picked up a first victory before the international break. Leeds did the double last season, and should pick up a third straight win against the Saints on Saturday.
Brentford vs Chelsea
The last game takes place in Brentford, as Chelsea look to stay at the top of the Premier League. Chelsea have won their last six London derbies, and have are unbeaten against the Bees in the last six meetings. However, Brentford’s excellent performances against Arsenal and Liverpool means that they could be good value to score in this fixture.
Everton vs West Ham
West Ham have won just once in their last five, while the Toffees have won three times during the same space of time. This will be a tight match-up in the top-flight, and the points being shared could be the most likely outcome.

Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur
Huge excitement will be in store at St James’ Park, as Newcastle get their new Saudi era underway. The takeover would have given the club a huge boost, and a first win could follow with the new owners in attendance.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
The final game of the weekend takes place on Monday night, as Palace could move into the top half of the standings. The Gunners are unbeaten in four, but Palace have shown over recent weeks that they are a team growing in confidence. A shock win at the Emirates could be the perfect return to North London for Patrick Vieira.
