What to expect from this week’s Match of the Day 2

Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa have had a poor start to the campaign and will be desperate for a result against a Chelsea side who have enjoyed a strong start under new manager Graham Potter.

High flying Arsenal have enjoyed an exceptional start to the season under Mikel Arteta and a victory against Leeds United will cement their place at the top of the table for another week.

Newcastle United are high on confidence after an excellent 5-1 win against Brentford they will travel to Old Trafford with the aim of recording their first victory away at Manchester United since 2013.

Southampton sit narrowly above the relegation places in 17th and they will entertain 13th place West Ham at St Mary’s Stadium.

The final game of the day kicks off at 4.30pm and will see Liverpool host title favourites Manchester City at Anfield in a clash between last season’s top two sides.
