I am so happy footballs back after the dreaded international break.
Here’s our preview, star players and predictions for gameweek 5!
Liverpool vs Newcastle
Newcastle have started okay, and played really well against Spurs, but I expect Liverpool to continue their winning run.
Star Man: Mo Salah (£12.5m)
Relaxing week for the Egyptian so he should be raring to go
Prediction: Liverpool 2 – 0 Newcastle
Brighton vs Burnley
Burnley have great fixtures for the next few weeks, but I expect them to lose on Saturday against and daring Brighton side
Star Man: Leandro Trossard (£6.0m)
Looks at real threat and could form a really good partnership with Maupay
Prediction: Brighton 3-1 Burnley
Manchester United vs Leicester
Are Manchester United all that? I think this will be a key test of the new defence with Maguire playing against his long time teammate Jamie Vardy
Star Man: Jamie Vardy (£8.9m)
Could show up the newly put together Manchester United back 4, with the centreback pairing off on International duty this week when they probably could have done with some time training together
Prediction: Manchester United 1-1 Leicester
Sheffield United vs Southampton
Southampton are difficult to predict, but with Redmond injured they may struggle to break down a well drilled Sheffield United side
Star Man: Callum Robinson (£5.3m)
Made a real impression with a goal and assist before the international break
Prediction: Sheffield United 2-0 Southampton
Tottenham vs Crystal Palace
Palace have started much better than I expected, but Kane is on form and I expect them to have enough to beat a resurgent Palace side
Star Man: Harry Kane (£11.0m)
In great form for England, I expect him to carry this into the weekend
Prediction: Tottenham2 – 1 Crystal Palace
Wolves vs Chelsea
Both teams look decent going forward and both a slightly suspect at the back. Could be a high scoring draw
Star Man: Tammy Abraham (£7.2m)
The mans in form, 13 points 2 weeks in a row!
Prediction: Wolves 2 – 2 Chelsea
Norwich vs Manchester City
Norwich look good going forward but suspect at the back. Can City keep a cleansheet without Laporte?
Star Man: Sergio Aguero (£12.1m)
Could be a hatrick in a game like this!
Prediction: Norwich 1 – 5 Manchester City
Bournemouth vs Everton
Bournemouth haven’t started well, but Everton haven’t looked great either. A more attacking line up from Everton in their last game makes goal look a possibility
Star Man: Moise Kean (£6.8m)
Looked good in his first start and can see him picking up a goal against a poor Bournemouth defence
Prediction: Bournemouth 2 – 3 Everton
Watford vs Arsenal
Watford have changed their manager, and the last time round he prided himself on not conceding. I still think Arsenals front 3 will have too much for a likely defensive Watford side
Star Man: Lacazette (£9.4m)
Looked sharp before the international break with a great finish for his goal.
Prediction: Watford 0 – 2 Arsenal
Aston Villa vs West Ham
This has Monday night cracker written all over it. Villa will throw caution to the wind at home and the front 4 of West Ham look a real handful.
Star Man: Sebastian Haller (£7.5m)
Looks to have a bit of everything.
Prediction: Aston Villa 2 – 4 West Ham
