The Premier League rolls on this weekend and there are a couple of standout games taking place on Saturday evening. There have been plenty of goals so far this campaign and these two games promise yet more excitement.
Manchester United v Chelsea
Manchester United host Chelsea at Old Trafford on Saturday evening with both sides making inconsistent starts to their season.
Manchester United followed up their 6-1 defeat against Tottenham with a 4-1 win at Newcastle to maintain their 100% away record. A Harry Maguire header and late goals from Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford eventually sealed a comfortable win at St James’ Park. That means the Red Devils have now won two and lost two of their opening four games, but they are yet to win at Old Trafford.
Chelsea have lost just one of their first five league games but have won just one of their last four. The Blues were held to a surprise 3-3 draw at home last week against Southampton, meaning more dropped points for Frank Lampard’s men despite a brace from Timo Werner and a second half Kai Havertz.
The last time these clubs met was in July in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. Chelsea won 3-1 but that was the Blues first win over United in seven attempts in all competitions. The last time Chelsea won at Old Trafford was in 2013, but they have not won there on their previous seven visits in the Premier League.
This promises to be an entertaining game and both teams are likely to score.
Liverpool v Sheffield United
Liverpool will hope to get back to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday night as they welcome struggling Sheffield United to Anfield. The current Premier League champions started the defence of their title well, winning their opening three games. However, they were then sensationally beaten 7-2 at Aston Villa and last week had to settle for a controversial 2-2 draw at their city neighbours, Everton.
Their visitors, Sheffield United, have struggled this season and have picked up just one point from their opening five games. That point came last week against fellow strugglers, Fulham, when they had to rely on a late Billy Sharp penalty to earn them a 1-1 draw at Bramhall Lane. The Blades have also struggled to score goals this campaign and have found the net on just two occasions.
When the clubs met last season, Liverpool won both games including a 2-0 home win in January, thanks to goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. Of the six Premier League games played at Anfield, Liverpool have won five of them, but the Blades did record a 2-1 away win back in 1994.
Liverpool will be confident of registering a win and should do so comfortably.
