In a quiet gameweek of just six games, Sheffield United beat Newcastle United by a goal to nil at home to record their first league win of the season. A second half penalty from Billy Sharp turned out to be the decisive strike in the opening game yesterday.
Meanwhile at Molineux, Wolves were put down 2-1 by a determined Everton side while Manchester United beat Burney 1-0 at Turf Moore courtesy of a Paul Pogba strike. The latter game set things up nicely ahead of a top of the table clash between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.
This gameweek wraps up at the Emirates tomorrow when Arsenal host Crystal Palace after two games this evening. Brighton visit the Etihad and take on Manchester City in the first game at 20:00. City have proved difficult opponents for the Seagulls in the past, after they put nine goals past them in the two fixtures last season. This time, from a South African perspective however, the focus is on Johannesburg boy Percy Tau, who is all set to make his Premier League debut for Brighton.
Meanwhile in London, Tottenham Hotspur take on Fulham in the rearranged fixture from a few gameweeks ago. The game was called off due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Fulham camp but will now take place at 22:15 this evening.
