Ainsley Maitland-Niles will almost certainly start for Arsenal as they kick off their Premier League season against defending champions Manchester City on Sunday.

With Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal both out injured, Maitland-Niles will draw the assignment to attempt to slow down whichever of Manchester City's prolific wingers start for Pep Guardiola's men. Maitland-Niles' athleticism is probably a solid match for the speed of Sterling, Sane, and Mahrez but not being a natural left back his technique and positioning could provide City with a massive opportunity. Look for Pep's men to attack down their right side and test the Arsenal youngster early and often on Sunday.

They got ahead quickly then held on but the Hammers took advantage of Fulham's bad form winning 2-0.

Robert Snodgrass put West Ham in the lead 17 minutes in by jumping on a ball that fell to him. It was Snodgrass’ second match in a row with a goal as he is finding form along with the Hammers. Not long after, Michail Antonio split Sergio Rico’s head for the second goal of the game. Fulham had chances in the first half but none were bigger Aboubakar Kamara who was denied on the line by Lukasz Fabianski. In the second half, Fulham created chances but West Ham did something that they haven’t done often this season, clamp down defensively, to keep them at bay. The victory saw West Ham rise to ninth in the table as they look to close in on a European spot in the table.

Let down by their defense again, Fulham lost 2-0 at home to West Ham United.

Claudio Ranieri coming to Craven Cottage was supposed to lift the squad for Fulham but now they’re winless in four and still have yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League this season. Fulham looked bright at the beginning of the match but when Aboubakar Kamara was denied by Lukasz Fabianski, it seemed to wake the West Ham attack as they ripped off two goals in the span of 12 minutes seeing Robert Snodgrass and Michail Antonio find the scoresheet. Fulham created chances in the second half but it was clear that West Ham wasn’t going to be beaten on the day. The loss sees Fulham stay rooted to the bottom of the table but they’ll have to get things going sooner rather than later with their next five games coming against Newcastle, Wolves, Huddersfield, Arsenal, and Burnley. It’s a period that could very well decide Fulham’s fate.

It was by no means pretty, but Tottenham keep chugging along, adding another three points with a nervy 1-0 win over Burnley.

Maurico Pochettino once again shook things up, giving the likes of Eriksen and Heung-min Son a place on the bench while playing Ben Davies at center back and handing a first ever PL start to 18-year-old Oliver Skipp. Spurs were in complete control from start to finish in terms of possession, but they had failed to create many chances from their time on the ball. Erik Lamela played a role in both close calls in the first half, sending a nice ball over the top to Lucas but the Brazilian could not finish and then testing the goalkeeper himself but was denied. Eriksen would eventually come on for the game's third act and a minute into stoppage time, found the net after Harry Kane held the ball the up and picked the Dane out.

Burnley were clear underdogs in their matchup with Tottenham but came within seconds of a road clean sheet and a draw only to have Spurs find a winner at the death to send the Clarets home empty, 1-0.

It had the makings of a result we became accustomed to from the Clarets last season, where they spent the bulk of the day defending while hoping to find something at the other end. While it worked for them against Brighton last weekend, the levee finally broke in second half stoppage time. Over 90 minutes, it was a consistent story - Tottenham controlled the ball almost the entire time but Burnley would pour everyone into the box, offering little space for Spurs to create a finish. The Clarets came close just after the start of the second half, when ex-Lilywhite Aaron Lennon sent in a cross that Ashley Barnes nearly volleyed home. Sam Vokes and Chris Wood would come off the bench for the final act of the match, but offered little threat.

Gerard Deulofeu scored a goal and assisted on another as Watford stormed out to a 3-0 lead over Cardiff City and held on as the Bluebirds pulled two back late.

Deulofeu replaced Isaac Success in Javi Gracia's starting line-up and it looked like a stroke of genius early as the former Barcelona man scored on 16 minutes. He helped his side double their lead just after halftime feeding Jose Holebas who put his side up 2-0. Domingos Quina added a third that turned out to be critical as Junior Hoilett and Bobby Reid scored within two minutes of each other in the late going to give the hosts a scare.

Newcastle United continued their recent good run of results in the PL with a 1-0 win away to Huddersfield Town.

Huddersfield will be very disappointed to come away from the encounter with nothing as they dominated proceedings, managing 74% possession. However, they couldn't make it count as both Chris Lowe and Philip Billing left good chances go a begging. David Wagner's side have now suffered four defeats on the bounce and remain in the relegation zone. Newcastle have now pulled six points clear of 18th place and continue to make Rafa Benitez look like a miracle-worker. Salomon Rondon's fourth PL goal for the club was enough to earn victory. His second-half strike from close range came after good work by Javier Manquillo and Ayoze Perez.

The battle between two of the "best of the rest" teams outside the Top Six ended in a convincing 2-0 win for Wolves at Molineux.

The home side took an early lead through Raul Jiménez after Diego Jota took advantage of an error by Charlie Daniels and had his shot turned in by the striker. Although Bournemouth were dominating proceedings before and after that goal, neither side mustered another good opportunity in the first half. Jota was forced off with an injury at the break, just as he was starting to show his talents consistently to the PL. His replacement Helder Costa was denied well by Begovic. The Cherries failed to penetrate the Wolves defence from open-play, though a Stanislas free hit the post, and eventually they were caught on the break in stoppage time by Ivan Cavaleiro. Bournemouth are now in tenth, with Wolves just a point behind Manchester United.

At least for the day, Manchester City will be back atop the Premier League table after a 3-1 win over Everton.

It was Gabriel Jesus who stole the show with two goals on either side of half-time, breaking his dubious goalless streak with the opener in the 22nd minute when he coolly finished from a difficult angle for his first Premier League goal since August. Leroy Sane drew up quite a connection with the Brazilian forward by assisting on both goals, including a brilliant chipped pass in the 50th minute that led to a powerful header from Gabriel Jesus. After Everton brought one back in the 65th, Raheem Sterling came off the bench for Sane and recorded only his second-career headed goal in the Premier League just minutes later for a 69th-minute winner. And there's more good news for City as Kevin De Bruyne returned from injury to feature as a second-half sub while Sergio Aguero also made the bench.

Despite looking up to the challenge, Everton were left to struggle at the Etihad in a 3-1 loss to Manchester City.

The Toffees kept up with the reigning Premier League champions with nine shots to their 13, but were far too wasteful to take points off the leaders with only two shots on goal. Even with Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling on the bench, Manchester City pulled away with a 2-0 lead by the 50th minute thanks to two goals from Gabriel Jesus where the Brazilian found himself wide open inside the penalty area. But Everton had a few minutes of hope in the 65th when Lucas Digne launched a cross that found Dominic Calvert-Lewin for a header that cut the lead in half. But in the 66th minute Sterling entered and scored the dagger just three minutes later to leave Everton behind.

Nathaniel Clyne has recovered from injury to help ease Liverpool’s defensive crisis.

On Friday, Jurgen Klopp revealed Trent Alexander-Arnold will be sidelined for Sundays’ north west derby although his ankle problem is not as serious as the "other two boys" – Joel Matip and Joe Gomez who are ruled out until early 2019 due to respective collarbone and ankle fractures. The defender will be assessed on a day-to-day basis. The Liverpool boss admits he will find a solution at right-back against Manchester United.... "but of course, it is not perfect." James Milner is a strong contender for the spot, despite coming off (vs Napoli) with cramp, but Clyne is another option having trained normally for the past four days. "Is he ready for 90 minutes? I don't know," Klopp said. "But is he ready? Yes." The injury-plagued defender has been restricted to just two Premier League starts in the past two seasons, but if he can recapture his form from 2016/17, then Clyne could prove to be a huge asset in the second half of the campaign.

Stephan Lichtsteiner has proven a valuable reserve for Arsenal and could feature in a third position on Sunday with Arsenal facing a defensive crisis.

The Gunners brought Stephan Lichtsteiner in with the idea that Hector Bellerin could use an experienced deputy/tutor. Lichtsteiner fit the bill coming over from perennial winners Juventus. Unai Emery has gotten more out of his summer signing than expected with the Swiss international deputizing at right back when all three of Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have been unavailable. With a similar issue at center back, Lichtsteiner seems like the odds-on favorite to get a spot start opposite Laurent Koscielny.
