New Arsenal manager Unai Emery could not have asked for a tougher start to the season as the post-Arsene Wenger era begins with a visit from Manchester City to Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have not beaten City within 90 minutes in any of their last seven meetings and that dismal run looks set to continue on Sunday in what should at least be an entertaining affair.
Leroy Sane has scored in three of his six appearances for last season’s Premier League champions against Arsenal and the 22-year-old German is 7/4 to find the net at anytime this weekend.
West Ham have a terrible recent record at Anfield – they have only won one of their last 48 visits to the ground – and Liverpool can get their season off to a fine start by easily beating Manuel Pellegrini’s new-look team.
Hopes are high at Anfield that Liverpool can challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season and the acquisitions of Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri for £160million suggest Jurgen Klopp means business.
Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were all in sublime form last season and Liverpool should ease to a routine three points against a West Ham team that may struggle to gel after Pellegrini signed 10 new players this summer.
Burnley have shown in their first three Europa League games that they will be a tough nut to crack again this season. After only conceding 39 goals last term, they kept an impressive clean sheet in Turkey against Istanbul Basaksehir on Thursday having knocked Aberdeen out in the previous round.
Southampton struggled in front of goal last season when they were almost relegated and, although Mark Hughes signed Danny Ings on deadline day, Saints may be far from prolific again this time.
It may not be pretty at St Mary’s and a goalless draw is certainly not out of the question.
