#3 Everton versus West Ham to be a thrilling encounter

With only three points separating the two sides, Everton will host West Ham at Goodison Park in the eighth Premier League game-week. Both teams are dark horses for a spot to qualify for Europe, with Everton a bit ahead of their rivals.

Everton and West Ham will also be raring to get back into winning ways after failing to secure all three points in their previous league matches. While Everton will take great heart from the fact that they snatched a point from Manchester United, West Ham will be regretting their loss against Brentford.

With in-form players like Andros Townsend and Michail Antonio leading the attack for their respective sides, it is expected to be a tough contest. A classic Premier League thriller might be on the cards when the two teams meet on Sunday.


#2 Leicester City vs Manchester United will end in a tense draw

Both Leicester City and Manchester United will head into their encounters with desperation and caution. While Manchester United are winless in their last two league games, Leicester City have not tasted a victory in their last four league games.

Despite the significant point difference between the two, the Red Devils' poor form will be a concern for Ole Gunner Solskjaer. Leicester City will try to take advantage of it with their star striker Jamie Vardy in explosive form since the start of the season.

📣 "Every time we go down to Leicester, we know it’s going to be difficult," the boss adds."It's early on in the season and sometimes you don’t really see the real picture yet, but I have the utmost respect every time we play Leicester." 👊#MUFC | #LEIMUN https://t.co/xLcYdbMghE

Cristiano Ronaldo's good form is always a boon but Solskjaer's team are yet to get their chemistry right. Players like Bruno Fernandes are yet to hit top form and the lack of a proper defensive midfielder will be troubling for Manchester United.

It remains to be seen whether both teams can utilize their opponent's flaws and snatch the much-needed three points. However, our guess is that neither side will give in, and the match could very well end up in a stalemate.


#1 Brentford to stun Chelsea

In the eighth game-week, league leaders Chelsea will try to snatch all three points and extend their lead at the top. The Blues will surely have a mammoth task on their hands as they face in-form Brentford in the London derby on Saturday.

Brentford have been sensational in the new campaign. They are seventh in the Premier League table and have defeated the likes of Arsenal and West Ham so far. Brentford also showed their strength as they held Liverpool to a thrilling 3-3 draw at their own ground.

Hosting the Premier league leaders and escaping with a win will be a rather tough task but Brentford might be the team who are up for it. The surprise package in this Premier League campaign so far will look to cause another upset as the two sides meet on Saturday.
