There is no rest in the Premier League with another round of fixtures this week, shown live on Amazon Prime.
With just under a month to go until the Premier League takes a break ahead of the World Cup, fixtures are coming thick and fast with three gameweeks in just over seven days. This particular gameweek is nestled in between the fourth and fifth Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League matches, meaning the top clubs are not being given a break before completing their group stages. Well, all but one.
Manchester City have the benefit of a free week after their fixture against Arsenal was postponed so the Gunners could fulfil their Europa League fixture against PSV Eindhoven. But there are still nine other matches to enjoy across the week.

With Man City vs Arsenal gone, the highlight fixture of the week is arguably Tottenham Hotspur’s trip up to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Given their rivals are not in action, Tottenham have the opportunity to move to within a point of Premier League leaders Arsenal should they end a three-game losing streak against Man Utd and claim just their second away win in their past 20 matches against the five other ever-present sides in the competition.
Harry Kane goes into the game in excellent form, scoring in each of his past five Premier League matches to take his total tally for the campaign to nine, trailing only Erling Haaland’s 15 in the Golden Boot race. Should Kane score at Old Trafford, he’d become the first Tottenham player to net in six consecutive Premier League matches, with six previous runs ending in five.
But perhaps even more remarkable is another record Kane is chasing. A goal against Man Utd this week would be Kane’s 10th scored on a Wednesday in the Premier League. The Englishman has already reached double figures for goals on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, and would become just the second Premier League player to hit 10+ on five different days of the week after Alan Shearer.
Only Erling Haaland (15) has scored more Premier League goals than Harry Kane this season.

The Premier League action does start on Tuesday though and there are some important games at the bottom of the table. In the week’s opener, Nottingham Forest travel to Brighton looking to move out of the relegation zone and end their eight-match winless run which includes six defeats. Brighton, meanwhile, will be hoping to bounce back from defeat against Brentford and gain their first win under Roberto Di Zerbi.
Just above the relegation zone, Wolves will be hoping they can build on their win over Forest at the weekend when they travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace, who are just one point above them despite being separated by three teams.
Wednesday’s action sees Chelsea travel across London to Brentford in hopes of keeping their winning run under Graham Potter going, now standing at five matches across all competitions with four consecutive clean sheets (after drawing the first game of the Potter era). Liverpool will also be looking to string consecutive wins together for just the second time having ending Man City’s unbeaten start at the weekend.
Elsewhere on Wednesday, Bournemouth host an in-trouble Southampton, while Everton travel to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United. The gameweek comes to a close on Thursday with Fulham hosting Aston Villa and Leicester facing Leeds, with two of those teams in very precarious positions.
Both Brendan Rodgers and Steven Gerrard have their futures currently in doubt after slow starts to the season, with the latter facing boos from home fans at the weekend after Villa were beaten by Chelsea.
