Newcastle vs Arsenal Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Jorginho, Rice; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli

Newcastle United and Arsenal will play the derby game in the Premier League this weekend at St James' Park. The Magpies are going into this match full of confidence after the high cup victory over Manchester United on Wednesday night. Nevertheless, the results in the Premier League are not at desired level. Newcastle sit on the sixth place with 17 points, six away from the Champions League spots. However, the home form is very good, Edie Howe's men have won the last three matches. They managed to beat Brentford, Burnley and Crystal Palace, keeping clean sheet on all three occasions. Of course, Arsenal are different level and could not be compared with the mentioned trio. Howe has some additional issues as lot of players are injured. Matt Targett is the latest victim after suffering a hamstring injury at Old Trafford. He joins Javier Manquillo, Lewis Miley, Alexander Isak, Sven Botman, Elliot Anderson, Jacob Murphy and Harvey Barnes on the lengthy absentee list. That's not all as Sandro Tonali is suspended due to illegal gambling activities.

Arsenal are sharing the second place with Manchester City. According to the bookmakers, these two teams are the biggest favorites for the title. The Gunners are in solid form, they won seven of the opening 10 matches in the Premier League, drawing the remaining three. However, the atmosphere in the squad isn't at desired level after the high cup defeat to West Ham. Arsenal suffered a 3:1 loss and left the fans disappointed, despite the fact Arteta rotated the players. The Spanish manager also lost one player on Wednesday as Emile Smith Rowe suffered a knee injury and the luckless midfielder has been ruled out for a longer period. Thomas Partey and Gabriel Jesus remain sidelined, while Jurrien Timber is still recovering from his ACL injury. Some of the regulars that were rested on Wednesday - Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Declan Rice and William Saliba - should return to the starting eleven. Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale had a nightmare evening against West Ham at the London Stadium, so David Raya is expected to start.

Newcastle vs Arsenal Preview:

This is a derby match this weekend in the Premier League and I think Newcastle are closer to the victory. The key reason for my pick is connect with EFL Cup results of both teams. While the Magpies beat Manchester United 3:0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening, the Gunners' suffered a painful elimination after losing 3:1 from West Ham. In addition, the home advantage should not be underestimated. Newcastle are very strong hosts and Arsenal young players will have a big problem to handle the pressure.

Luton Town vs Liverpool Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Luton Town:
Kaminski; Kabore, Osho, Lockyer, Mengi, Doughty; Nakamba, Barkley; Chong; Morris, Adebayo

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Salah, Nunez, Jota

Luton Town will try to stop Liverpool's winning series when they welcome the Reds to Kenilworth Road on Sunday. The Hatters are newcomers in the Premier League and the fans only want to escape the relegation. They had a slow start with seven defeats in the opening 10 league matches and sit third from the bottom with just five points. October was certainly a bad month for Luton Town, who entered the month on the back of their only victory against Everton. The Hatters have suffered three defeats and earned just a point playing a 2:2 draw with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. It is clear what's the biggest problem - the defense. If Liverpool score here, Luton Town would become the first Premier League team since Leicester City's crop of 1994 to concede in each of their first 11 games in the competition. In addition, Edwards has six injury worries ahead of Liverpool visit - Mads Andersen, Daniel Potts, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Reece Burke, Jordan Clark and Amari'i Bell are all sidelined.

Liverpool sit on the fourth place with 23 points after the opening 10 matches. The Reds are four points adrift of leaders Manchester City who beat Bournemouth 6:1 on Saturday, while Tottenham will play against Chelsea on Monday night. The last four rounds were mixed for the Reds as they registered two victories, one draw and one defeat. Klopp's men lost 2:1 to Tottenham in London, played a 2:2 draw at Brighton, while managed to beat Everton and Nottingham at Anfield. The away form isn't at desired level and that's a big problem. In addition, the German coach has four unavailable players. Luis Diaz has missed out the league match against Nottingham and EFL Cup game with Bournemouth due to personal reasons. As You probably know, his parents were kidnapped in Colombia, and the authorities are still searching for his missing father. Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara and Andrew Robertson remain unavailable due to injuries, while Ben Doak is rated as doubtful due to a muscle injury. Alisson Becker, Ryan Gravenberch, Alexis Mac Allister and Trent Alexander-Arnold should return to the starting eleven.

Luton Town vs Liverpool Prediction:

I expect an efficient match here. Liverpool are easily scoring , however they are also conceding. The Reds have kept just three clean sheets in 10 top-flight matches so far this season. Luton Town, meanwhile, haven't registered a single clean sheet this term. They could become the first Premier League team since Leicester City's crop of 1994 to concede in each of their first 11 games in the competition. Considering these facts, I expect a high scoring encounter.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Johnson; Son

Sanchez; Disasi, Silva, Badiashile, Colwill; Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher; Palmer, Jackson, Sterling

Tottenham Hotspur welcome their London rivals Chelsea in a blockbuster Premier League affair. The Australian coach Ange Postecoglou is doing an excellent job and the fans are satisfied. Tottenham are leaders on the table, although Manchester City have one point more at the moment, after they won on Saturday, but the Spurs have a match in hand. They are in fantastic form, winning the last four league matches. One of those victories was controversial as VAR decision helped Tottenham to beat Liverpool, but who cares? There is not much fair-play left in modern football. Nevertheless, the atmosphere in the squad is very good, while the players confidence is high. Postecoglou has six injury worries ahead of the derby. Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, Alfie Whiteman and Ryan Sessegnon remain out as they are still rehabilitating from surgery, while two more are rated as doubtful. Destiny Udogie sat out the win over Crystal Palace with the knock he sustained against Fulham, while Ben Davies is struggling with an ankle injury.

There will be lot of emotions when the former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino enter the stadium. Most probably he will receive a warm welcome from the whole auditorium, but who knows. It is not impossible some of the home fans to be against the Argentinian coach. Even the current manager Postecoglou has warned ex-Spurs boss not to expect a guard of honour when he makes his North London return on Monday evening. By the way, Pochettino is under heavy pressure due to poor results. Chelsea managed to win just three of the opening 10 matches in the Premier League. He also has several injury issues. Ben Chilwell, Romeo Lavia, Wesley Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, Trevoh Chalobah and Carney Chukwuemeka remain sidelined, while winger Mykhaylo Mudryk is expected to shake off his minor affliction in time for this match. Striker Armando Broja is doubtful with a knee injury. Finally, Reece James should be rested after played 61 minutes of the win over Blackburn. Most probably Axel Disasi will start at right-back.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Prediction:

Tottenham are clear favorites in this match. They are in excellent form and they have the home advantage. The Spurs have scored twice in each of their four home victories this season. Furthermore, they could register the fifth consecutive victory in the Premier League for the first time since December 2018, when Pochettino was in charge. Chelsea have won just three of their opening 10 league matches and the players confidence is low.
