Watford might not have attracted big headlines this season, but they remain one of the three undefeated sides in the league. On Saturday afternoon, they will host another undefeated side – Manchester City, at Vicarage Road.

Bournemouth vs Brighton and Hove Albion – predictions and betting tips

Bournemouth are desperate for points as they prepare to face their South Coast rivals Brighton at Vitality Stadium on Friday night. The Cherries are without a point this season and currently sit second-from-bottom in the league.

Guardiola refuses to explain why he has left Yaya Toure at home

Arsene Wenger need to manage Europa League to his advantage in the league race

The mood in the Arsenal’s camp was definitely lifted following the comfortable 3-0 home win over Bournemouth last Saturday. The fact that Manchester United and Liverpool dropped points on the same day made the weekend even better for the club fans. As things stand, the Gunners are just four points off the top, but they can’t afford to let that gap increase anymore this early in the season. One positive aspect for the Gunners this season is that they would be able to prioritize league football over the European football.…
