Premier League Week Four Previews
The Premier league returns for another week of fixtures on Saturday, in this article we will preview some of the key games coming up.
Leeds Vs Manchester City
Leeds host Manchester City at 5 30 on Saturday evening. The Whites look to be adjusting to life in the Premier league well, with a 1-0 win against Sheffield United last Sunday. City have had an out of character start to the season, losing 5-2 to Leicester at the weekend, Pep Guardiola’s heaviest defeat as Manchester City manager.
We all know Kevin De Bruyne will be a player to watch for City, the Belgian is arguably one of the best players in the league, and can influence the outcome of any game. The Belgian has 1 goal and 1 assist so far, as well as an average match rating of 8.13.
Leeds fans will be wondering whether new signing, Diego Llorente, will be making an appearance on Saturday. The centre half signed from Real Sociedad, for £17m last week.
Leeds United have three players unavailable for selection, Adam Forshaw, Pablo Hernandez and Kiko Casilla, are all injured until mid October. Manchester City still have an injury ridden squad, with the likes of Bernado Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan out.

Manchester United Vs Tottenham

Spurs are in a similar situation, losing 1-0 to Everton, beating Southampton 5-2 and drawing 1-1 with Newcastle.

Aston Villa Vs Liverpool
Aston Villa play Liverpool at Villa park for the last game of the weekend. Both sides have had implausible starts to the season, with 100% records.
On Monday Liverpool enjoyed an emphatic 3-1 win over Arsenal, new signing Diogo Jota got off the mark on his debut.
The Villains eased to a 3-0 victory against Fulham last time out. Aston Villa seem to be looking to push on this season, after narrowly staying up last season.
Villa had a fairly busy transfer window, with the arrivals of Ross Barkley, Bertrand Traore, Emiliano Martinez, Ollie Watkins and Matty Cash.
After being off the boil at the back end of last season, Liverpool have started the season in typical Liverpool style. The Reds are firm favourites for the title this season, with Manchester City already looking 2nd best.
