Following midweek European matchups, the Premier League returns this weekend.
Manchester United hosts Everton at Old Trafford in the early kick-off.
With a 2-1 victory over Villarreal in the Champions League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won himself some time.
Solskjaer was under pressure after United had lost three of their previous four games, and you could feel some of it float away when Cristiano Ronaldo scored a 95th-minute winner.
In current form, you’d expect the Red Devils to get three points against Rafa Benitez’s side, who have been inconsistent so far this season.
Chelsea hosts Southampton at Stamford Bridge following their match in Manchester.
Thomas Tuchel, for example, is starting to feel the pressure. Within six months of replacing Frank Lampard, the German won the Champions League and became an instant hero.
He has discovered, though, that managing a top-flight team in England is a very different ballgame when you have the entire season ahead of you.
Chelsea has dropped their last two games, losing to Manchester City and Juventus respectively. The European champs, you’d think, are bruised and ready to retaliate.
Arsenal are in excellent form as they head to Brighton across London. Mikel Arteta’s side have won all four of their matches since losing their first three matches of the season.
The Gunners were enthralling and electrifying against Tottenham last weekend. And it appeared like Arteta’s master idea was taking shape.
However, they will face a worthy opponent at Brighton this weekend. On Monday, Graham Potter’s side missed out on a chance to move top of the league, and they’ll be eager to put Arsenal’s newfound confidence to the test on their own turf.
This one has the potential to go either way.
