EPL Matchday 2: Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, set to battle for top spot, as Man United make debut


The English Premier League returns for matchday 2 this weekend, and it promises to be exciting.
Mikel Arteta's Arsenal hit the ground running last weekend, with an emphatic 3-0 win over newcomers, Fulham, and will be hoping to replicate the same success when they host West Ham United at the Emirates on Saturday evening.

If The Gunners win very well, they could extend their stay at the top of the league, after spending the last week there, due to their superior goal difference.

Elsewhere, on Saturday, Manchester United fans will finally be able to watch their team play for the first time this season, after getting an extended break due to their involvement in the Europa League last term.

Olé Gunnar Solskjaer's side, recently added Donny van de Beek to their already rich midfield, and it will be interesting to see if he plays against Crystal Palace.

United need the win, as they would love to start in the same fashion they finished last term, but of course, they'll have to show enough hunger to win.

Another fixture to watch out for this weekend is the one involving Liverpool and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The match will take place on Sunday evening, but it is arguably the most anticipated match of the weekend.

After winning their opening day fixtures, both teams will be looking to consolidate on their fine starts. Chelsea in particular will hope to have a better outing, having lost their last meeting with Jürgen Klopp's men.

Some of The Blues's recent signings are expected to be unavailable due to injuries, but Frank Lampard's side managed to beat Brighton on Monday, and they will be out for another victory.

Manchester City haven't yet played a game this season, after also getting an extended break for their involvement in the UEFA Champions League last season, and will take to the field on Monday against their nemesis, Wolves.

Pep Guardiola's side have been struggling of late, but they will be looking more confident, having made a few additions this summer.
