Premier League, 9 Sep., 13:30: Manchester City vs. Liverpool The Premier League returns with a real blockbuster fixture on Saturday, and I'm actually forecasting something of a surprise here. City have been impressive so far in the top flight, but Liverpool have been at a different level -attacking with cohesion, dynamism and venom. Playing on the counter-attack should suit Jurgen Klopp's side - look at how they devastated Arsenal - and I'm tipping them to get a big away win here. Sportnow 's Prediction: Liverpool to win by one goal Premier League, 9 Sep., 16:00: Arsenal vs. Bournemouth The Gunners will be reeling after their 4-0 demolition by Liverpool and the Alexis Sanchez saga during the international break. All things considering, this game should be a pretty ideal return for them; Bournemouth are currently pointless, and aim to play the kind of style that should allow Arsenal to impose themselves in front of their own fans. Sportnow's Prediction: Arsenal to win by two or more goals. Premier League, 9 Sep., 16:00: Leicester City vs. Chelsea
The last two EPL champions go head-to-head at the King Power Stadium in one of the more intriguing match-ups of the weekend. N'Golo Kante will return to his former club, but the match may come too soon for the Blues' deadline-day signing Danny Drinkwater. Nonetheless, Chelsea have bounced back strongly after that opening-day defeat by Burnley, and I'm predicting them to just sneak past the Foxes here. Sportnow's Prediction: Chelsea to win by one goal Premier League, 9 Sep., 16:00: Everton vs. Tottenham Hotspur This is another fascinating match-up between two ambitious sides who have made some intriguing moves - despite losing a star man - during the transfer window. Everton will hand a home debut to Gylfi Sigurdsson who's yet to truly impose himself for the Toffees in the Premier League, although Spurs fans may have to wait to see Serge Aurier after his move from Paris Saint-Germain. Now that August is over, will Harry Kane open his Spurs account for the season? Sportnow's Prediction: Draw
Premier League, 9 Sep., 18:30: Stoke City vs. Manchester United United have had a superb start to the season, but they may be tested against a Stoke City who know how to battle and who have already taken Arsenal's scalp so far this term. However, what the Potters struggle to deal with is pace in behind them, so while Mark Hughes's side may have answers for Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, neutralising Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford may be a different story. Sportnow's Prediction: United to win by two or more goals Championship, 9 Sep., 18:30, Sheffield Wednesday vs. Nottingham Forest Forest are the in-form side heading into this one, as even though they were defeated by Leeds United before the international break, they've enjoyed an excellent start to the season and are looking like genuine playoff contenders under Mark Warburton. Wednesday, by contrast, appear to be suffering a playoff hangover, and are down in 16th after five games, having won just once. They don't give many goals away, however, and home support could help them take a point from the Tricky Trees. Sportnow's Prediction: Draw Premier League, 10 Sep., 14:30, Burnley vs. Crystal Palace Palace are one of three teams in the Prem who are pointless heading into Gameweek Four, and I'm afraid I can't see that changing away at Burnley. Sean Dyche's side remain solid despite the departure of Michael Keane - just ask Spurs - and the addition of Chris Wood has given then another powerful frontman who should suit their style well. SPORTNOW's Prediction: Burnley to win by one goal Premier League, 10 Sep., 17:00, Swansea City vs. Newcastle United This one's tricky to predict! Newcastle are enjoying an abject start to the season off the field, where Rafael Benitez and Mike Ashley appear to be at loggerheads. On the field, however, it's not as bad as you may expect, and they were brilliant as West Ham United were dispatched before the international break. Swansea's strikers found their feet against Palace, while the addition of Wilfried Bony means more goals if he can rediscover the form he enjoyed during his first stint at the Liberty Stadium. Sportnow's Prediction: Draw Championship, 12 Sep., 20:45, Queens Park Rangers vs. Millwall QPR may be lacking a bit of consistency this campaign, but they're performing better than expected, with the towering Matt Smith always a potential difference-maker at this level. Millwall aren't faring too badly either upon their return to the second tier; heads didn't drop after the 4-3 defeat by Ipswich at home, and the 4-0 rout of Norwich was a pretty perfect response. It's a London derby, and anything can happen, but I just don't think the Lions can match QPR's quality going forward. SPORTNOW's Prediction: QPR to win by one goal Championship, 12 Sep., 20:45, Aston Villa vs. Middlesbrough Two of the promotion favourites before the season began clash in what should be a fascinating match-up at Villa Park. Neither have hoped particularly well with the weight of expectation, with Steve Bruce's expensively assembled and experienced squad having won just one of their opening five fixtures. Garry Monk's Boro are up in ninth, but they struggled in front of goal in the 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest and drew a blank again at home against Preston before the international break. SPORTNOW's Prediction: Draw
