Premier League team of the weekend: Tottenham, Chelsea, and Arsenal stars included

Swansea could drop into the bottom three having won one in five league games and sit just one point above. While we may not be able to read much into that stat, Arsenal had scored eighteen goals in their opening nine matches, compared with the 32 Manchester City have scored this season, showing how dominant City have been this season by blowing teams away, while Arsenal only won two of their opening games by more than a two-goal margin. Elsewhere, Manchester United went unbeaten all winter.

Manchester City have impressed so far this season and seem comfortable at the top of the league.

Liverpool have not conceded a goal to Huddersfield in 45 years and have not lost to them since 1959.

"A draw at Old Trafford would be a good result for them".


Watford have only beaten Stoke once in the Premier League and have lost the last three meetings. They got 22 points from their final 10 fixtures to end with a summer-months average bettered only by Chelsea and Manchester City. They are yet to lose so far and have won eight of nine league games this season.

Arsenal host Swansea and will surely field the "MLS" again - Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez.

Their attacking prowess has meant City are now scoring an average of 3.5 goals per game and are averaging scoring an astonishing five goals per game at home, with their recent 3-0 win over Burnley being their lowest scoring home game so far this season.

Bruno had more touches than any other Brighton player in the dominant 3-0 away win against West Ham (63), and also made three interceptions for the Seagulls.


The £3 billion (€3.38bn) overseas television deal for 2016-19 generates £39m annually for each club - and for the previous 25 years, there has been an equal sharing of worldwide broadcasting income between the clubs.

And, there is a freshness about Leicester and Everton, due to poor starts and managerial changes, that could make for a fine game.

They also have the joint worst goal difference of all the teams in the top half.

But, the Cherries have shown signs of real improvement in recent weeks. Swansea are struggling this season but have proved hard for teams to break down, Arsenal will not be granted as much space as Everton gave up.


The final game this week is Newcastle's Monday night visit to Burnley.
