Manchester United got their season off to a late start with a well-deserved win over Liverpool on Monday night.

Erik ten Hag’s rejuvenated Red Devils are back in action on Saturday in the early kick-off as they take on Southampton hoping to prove their 2-1 win over their fiercest rivals was not a straw fire.

Elsewhere, Arsenal will be looking to continue their 100 per cent start to the new campaign at home to Fulham, while Jurgen Klopp’s struggling Reds will surely get their first three points of the season at home to Bournemouth.

It’s a crucial game. United want to go on, but if they draw or lose, people will say the win over Liverpool was an accident. It’s all about continuity. We can score goals and if we keep a clean sheet we will win the game. It’s that simple. . Prediction: 0-2.

Betfair Exchange odds: Southampton 10/3, Draw 3/1, Man United 3/4

Chelsea v Leicester

Chelsea’s last game was a shock. I said recently that Mendy is the best goalkeeper in the world but these mistakes cost you dearly, he knows it, he is a world class player. Leicester are struggling, I don’t know what’s going on. I see Chelsea winning because they will want to fix this humiliation. . Prediction: 2-0.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Chelsea 2/5, Draw 15/4, Leicester 7/1

Brighton v Leeds

Brighton is on fire and I have to congratulate them and Danny Welbeck for the job they are doing. Leeds will be flying high, but they could still celebrate their result against Chelsea and Brighton will be aiming for victory. . Prediction: 2-1.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Brighton 20/23, Draw 14/5, Leeds 31/10

Man City v Crystal Palace

It’s going to be a great game. I’m excited for this one, normally we would just say City are going to win but it’s the kind of game where anything can happen. Patrick Vieira is doing an amazing job, and he’s got really talented players everywhere, they’re not afraid. I can see a lot of goals. I have to support City because the way they came back and the spirit they showed against Newcastle, they showed character instead of just tactics, they showed personality. It will be an explosive game. . Prediction: 3-2.

Betfair swap odds: Man City 2/11, Draw 13/2, Crystal Palace 15/1

Liverpool v Bournemouth

Liverpool are now in survival mode and cannot lose to Bournemouth. They didn’t start well and this is the one they have to win. . Prediction: 3-0.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Liverpool 1/9, Draw 9/1, Bournemouth 22/1

Brentford v Everton

Brentford will be disappointed to lose at the last minute to Fulham. It’s getting harder and harder for Everton, I feel like every team they play is a completely different challenge for them. I don’t see Everton winning. Prediction: 1-1.

Betfair swap odds: Brentford Evens, Draw 5/2, Everton 11/4

Arsenal v Fulham

Arsenal will put their departure 100% on the line against Fulham

It’s going to be an explosive game. Both teams love to play football. Mitrovic can upset Arsenal. Saliba is doing an amazing job, their defense is improving but Mitrovic is dangerous. Arsenal are going there in great form, but I don’t think it will be an easy game. Fulham can upset Arsenal, but I think at home they will have just enough. Prediction: 2-1.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Arsenal 3/10, Draw 9/2, Fulham 9/1

Wolves v Newcastle

Allan Saint-Maximin is on fire. They were impressive against City, but that’s what they mean. They are a team that love to play, they have the fans behind them and staying strong last season was a huge achievement, they don’t want to make the same mistakes again. They have a plan and the manager has confidence. I don’t see why they can’t win against Wolves. Prediction: 0-1.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Wolves 17/10, Draw 9/4, Newcastle 17/10

Aston Villa v West Ham

I’m sad for West Ham, I’m sure it’s not what David Moyes was hoping for at the start of the season. They had some weird and tough games, starting with City, it wasn’t easy. If they lose that, they’ll be in some kind of crisis. Aston Villa have had their ups and downs, and they need the win too. Prediction: 2-1.

Betfair swap odds: Aston Villa 13/10, Draw 12/5, West Ham 9/4

Nottingham Forest v Spurs

It will be a tough match, going to Forest will not be easy, their fans will be right behind them. I can see Spurs winning and it’s a lousy game. Conte made them win when they didn’t play well, and I can see the same in this one. Prediction: 1-2.

Betfair swap odds: Nottm Forest 6/1, Draw 18/5, Spurs 40/85
