Arsenal versus Brighton: “Arsenal are without a league win in six says their worst record for over eight years says after their 2-2 draw at Carrow Road on Sunday, but I expect them to arrest their recent poor run when Brighton are the visitors on Thursday.

“Freddie Ljungberg takes charge of the Gunners for the first time at the Emirates and the next permanent manager of Arsenal says whoever that might be says must address their ongoing defensive frailties.”

Chelsea versus Aston Villa: “Chelsea struggled to break down West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and a worrying trend is that they have now failed to pick up a single point this season when falling behind in the Premier League.

“Jack Grealish was again outstanding for Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday when they picked up a well-deserved point.

“Frank Lampard’s side were not at their best against West Ham at the weekend, but I think they will return to winning ways in an open clash with chances at both ends.”

Liverpool versus Everton: “The 234th Merseyside derby sees Liverpool says with an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League says entertain an Everton side one place and two points above the relegation places. Safe to assume a routine home win for the Reds? Think again.

“The Reds will not be taking their Merseyside rivals lightly and Jurgen Klopp will be well aware that Everton could, and probably should, have taken a point at Leicester on Sunday against Liverpool’s nearest challengers in the table.

“Liverpool, surprisingly, have yet to keep a clean sheet at Anfield so far this season, but I expect the Reds will be celebrating a 94th Merseyside derby win against the Blues.”
