Four major talking points ahead of Premier League gameweek 6


Gameweek 6 is one of those few Premier League weeks where the big guns should expect to win easily against some weaker sides on paper. However, that does not happen as often as we think! Let us start our discussion with a look at the complete fixtures of gameweek 6.Who will remain at the top?

Right now, both Manchester sides are jointly at the top, with 13 points from 5 games and with a goal difference of +14 (16 scored, 2 conceded). This weekend, Manchester City will welcome a hapless Crystal Palace while United will take a testing trip to St. Mary’s. It’s more likely that City will be able to maintain their position at the zenith, but Jose Mourinho’s mean look determined and that would add extra flavour to the race. It will be immensely exciting to witness another goal-fest in these two gameweek 6 affairs.

Can Liverpool take a revenge?

Jurgen Klopp is not having a good time at the moment. Following a humiliating defeat against Manchester City, a 2-2 outing in the Champions League opener against Sevilla and a dull 1-1 draw against Burnley, the Reds further faltered against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup. The Foxes got the better of Liverpool and knocked them out of the competition. The two teams are going to lock horns once again on Saturday. It will be a redemption time for the visitors and three points from the gameweek 6 match are all they need to get back the confidence.

Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez’s return to top flight:

Chelsea and Arsenal suffered to some extent due to the absence of their two top players. But, much to the relief of the fans, the duo are expected to return to the starting lineup this weekend. Both started the Carabao Cup fixtures this week, and they were in good touch. Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger will rely on the duo’s skills to deliver in gameweek 6 clashes against Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion, respectively.

Everton or Bournemouth – who will get the breakthrough?

The display of these two teams have been terrible this season. Both have managed to secure three points in only one game each, while Everton successfully drew against Manchester City. But, other than that, it has been a story of defeats for both sides. They have also conceded at ease. Most recently, Everton succumbed to a 0-4 loss against a rampaging Manchester United. The Cherries, however, won their last game against Brighton and that victory came after four back to back losses in the first four gameweeks. Naturally, the gameweek 6 faceoff between these two teams will be an option to move forward in the league.
