Vital Preview - Premier League - 9th-11th September 2017

The 2017-18 season continues, in fact resumes following the international break, with the latest round of games this weekend. This will see us among those involved with three points of course the aim.

Previous results

Saturday 26th August
Bournemouth 1-2 Manchester City 12:30
Crystal Palace 0-2 Swansea City 15:00
Huddersfield Town 0-0 Southampton 15:00
Newcastle United 3-0 West Ham United 15:00
Watford 0-0 Brighton and Hove Albion 15:00
Manchester United 2-0 Leicester City 17:30

Sunday 27th August
Chelsea 2-0 Everton 13:30
West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Stoke City 13:30
Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal 16:00
Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Burnley 16:00

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

The Premier League resumes after the break with a big one at the Etihad Stadium - Saturday's lunchtime kick off will see Manchester City, fourth, play host to second-placed Liverpool.

Brighton are yet to win, meanwhile, West Brom haven't suffered a defeat. The two Albion's will feel this meeting is an opportunity for points, which, even at this stage, are perhaps needed more by the Seagulls.

Two clubs who will hope to push for top-four finishes - at least - are Everton and Tottenham. Admittedly, they haven't quite made the starts they would have wanted but they could be far worse.

Ahead of the meeting at St Mary's, Southampton and Watford have identical records, two draws and a victory.

Manchester United are the only Premier League side with a perfect record - Stoke have proven a bogey side at times over the years and the Potters would hope to continue this to end the leaders' 100% record.

Sunday's games will see Burnley and second-bottom Crystal Palace, who are yet to win, meeting at Turf Moor followed by Swansea and Newcastle, both recording first wins last time round.

The schedule ends at the London Stadium on Monday evening as under pressure West Ham boss Slaven Bilic bids to guide his side to a first point of the campaign when the Hammers host third-placed Huddersfield, who are yet to suffer a topflight defeat.

Fixtures

Saturday 9th September
Manchester City v Liverpool 12:30

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right; we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
