And then there were none after Tottenham and Arsenal lost this past weekend; no undefeated teams remain. Arsenal and Tottenham will look to get back in the win column in their week 12 matchups. Manchester City and Liverpool have put themselves in a position to leapfrog both Arsenal and Tottenham for first and second place in the league. The Marquee matchup of the week is Manchester City vs Chelsea, which will take place Sunday in the primetime slot. As mentioned earlier, City wants to take control of the top spot in the standings. Chelsea is looking to build momentum after handing Tottenham their first loss of the season. With another international break coming up, teams will look to collect three points and head into the break on a positive note.
Matchday 11 of the Premier League kicks off Saturday with a seven-game slate and closes Monday with a London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham. The race between the top five teams, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Aston Villa, is very tight coming into week 11 as undefeated first-place Tottenham and the surging fifth-place team Aston Villa are only separated by four points. Aside from the London derby, one matchup fans should keep an eye on is the matchup between Arsenal and Newcastle United. Arsenal will look to keep up with Tottenham, while Newcastle will look to collect three points and break into the top four.
As the Premier League enters the second quarter of the season, Tottenham sits at the top of the table and is undefeated in nine games. Ange Postecoglou's side is playing excellent football and will look to remain undefeated in their match versus Crystal Palace. Arsenal is not far behind, only trailing the Spurs by two points. They come into week 10 undefeated with a record of 6-3-0 and hope to add three more points as they host winless Sheffield at the Emirates. Matchday 10 is headlined by one of the biggest derbies in the league, the Manchester Derby. Manchester City will travel to hostile territory at Old Trafford and look to collect three points against their rival Manchester United.
After another international break, the Premier League will resume with Matchday nine. Up to this point, only two teams remain undefeated, both Arsenal and Tottenham. They will look to extend their undefeated streak as they both have favorable matchups. Matchday nine will hold one of the Premier League's biggest and most heated rivalries, the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton. The biggest question that will be answered this week is whether or not Manchester City can right the ship and avoid three straight losses in the Premier League.
Before being sent off on another international break, the Premier League sends fans off with another weekend of high-level competitive football. Matchday eight's main event between Manchester City and Arsenal takes place on Sunday as last season's champion and runner-up face off for a spot at the top of the table. At the other end of the spectrum, Bournemouth and Sheffield look to get their first win. Other matches of interest are Newcastle vs. West Ham. Newcastle looks to continue building on three straight wins in the Premier League and an impressive 4-1 win in the Champions League vs. Mbappe's PSG.
Pick: Arsenal Spread -1 (-125)
The Wolves will travel to Kenilworth Road Stadium in hopes of picking up three crucial points. Luton Town has yet to win a game, having lost all four matches, which is why I have chosen the Wolves to come away with a win. Despite the Wolves only having one win on their record, they have been competitive in their losses. Also, Luton Town is the second lowest-rated team in the league, possessing the ball a league-low 35.5 percent of the time and producing a league-low 2.2 shots on target per game.
The Premier League is back after the international break, and Matchday 5 is set to be a good one. Unbeaten West Ham United will be tested as they host the reigning champions, Manchester City, at the London Stadium. Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool will also try to stay hot and remain undefeated in their matches. Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United will look to right the ship after a disappointing start to the season.
