The Premier League is back this weekend, with the pesky business of international football out of the way until next month.

Gameweek 5 is set to serve up some crackers as Liverpool host Newcastle, Spurs take on Crystal Palace in a London derby and Chelsea travel to Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s team have proven to be a thorn in the big six’s side since they got promoted and will fancy their chances of adding Frank Lampard’s scalp to their collection.

Manchester United will be aiming to get back on track against Leicester, although Jamie Vardy may have something to say about that, and Arsenal face Watford at Vicarage Road.

It’s been a case of all change for the Hornets this week as Javi Gracia paid the price for a poor start, leading to Quique Sanchez Flores being brought in as his replacement.

The Spaniard is in familiar territory, having managed the club as recently as 2016, but is unlikely to be given much time to get the club back on course.

Unai Emery will be determined to take advantage, with the Gunners set to climb back into the top four with victory in Hertfordshire.

But how will Arsenal choose to set up against Watford on Sunday afternoon? Their front three may be packed with pace but the hosts will surely sit deep in an attempt to counteract the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe.
