Saturday 12.30pm: Southampton v Manchester United

TV: BT Sport

Do I have to talk about Manchester United!? I thought they were going to turn up against Liverpool so I wasn’t as shocked as some people. The thing for United now is that they’ve got to keep it going, and I think they will win again.

They’re looking for their first back-to-back wins in the Premier League since February which is absolutely astonishing! They’ve lost their last seven away games in the Premier League though, giving up 21 goals, but I think off the back of them beating Liverpool you have to fancy them to go on and win here.

It will be tight but I fancy Manchester United will Win 2-1. Marcus Rashford looked, I thought, as good as I’ve seen him down the middle against Liverpool so I’ll go for Rashford to Score Anytime.

Saturday 5.30pm: Arsenal v Fulham

TV: Sky Sports

There’s a hot streak running through Arsenal at the moment and they’re feeling very, very confident about how they’re doing. I think they’ve got the bad eggs out of the side and I think everything is rosy in the garden.

Arsenal fans are so happy right now. Fulham have started quite well, they’re unbeaten in their three Premier League games but the Carabao Cup defeat by Crawley, I know they didn’t have a full team, but sometimes that knocks confidence.

Arsenal have not lost at home to Fulham in 30 games in all competitions so you’ve got to go for the Gunners. I’m going for Arsenal to Win 3-1. I’ve been really impressed with their new Brazilian forward, it looks like he’s going to score every time he gets the ball so Gabriel Jesus to Score Anytime.

Eddie Howe

Sunday 2pm: Wolves v Newcastle

TV: Sky Sports

I do worry for Wolves, I know Raul Jimenez is back and scored during the week but they’ve only got one point from the three games and they’ve not won any of their last four at home. Things are a little bit rocky with Wolves.

For Newcastle, well everything is buoyant for them and five points from their opening three games is their best start for 11 years. They have scored in all of the 14 Premier League meetings with Wolves and I fancy them to continue their hot streak so I’m going Newcastle to Win 2-1 and Chris Wood to Score Anytime.

Sunday 4.30pm: Nottingham Forest v Tottenham

TV: Sky Sports

Nottingham Forest are the big spenders! £154m spent, who would have thought it? There’s more to come as well by the sounds of it. It’s absolutely astonishing. They’ve lost one, won one and drawn one. In their three Premier League games they’ve faced 61 shots so they are looking a bit vulnerable at the back and I think Spurs will take advantage.

If Tottenham win this it will be their best start in 13 years. They’re unbeaten in nine Premier League games and things are starting to click for Antonio Conte. I think this will be a comfortable 2-0 Spurs win with Harry Kane to Score Anytime.
