Premier League fixtures today – your guide to Saturday’s games

Premier League clubs may well still be feeling dizzy when they take to the pitch on Saturday just one day removed from the close of the summer transfer window.

Some blockbuster moves went through as teams in England’s top flight acted frantically to bring in their targets before the deadline and there is an added sense of intrigue over which players will be available for matchday selection.

The Premier League’s fourth gameweek of the season began on Friday night with West Ham’s trip to Luton but Saturday’s action will begin when Sheffield United host Everton. Title holders Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham play at 15:00 BST before Brighton host Newcastle at the AMEX Stadium in the late fixture.

Here’s how you can follow the six Premier League games set to take place on Saturday.

We’ve only just entered September and yet Everton’s trip to Sheffield United in Saturday’s early game could certainly be described as a six-pointer.

Both sides are pointless so far, though the Blades have played a game fewer than the Toffees. Sean Dyche’s visitors will have to overcome what is sure to be a vociferous Bramall Lane crowd and their own wretched form, though Everton did manage a late 2-1 victory over Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup second round in midweek.

Sheffield United won 16 of their 23 home games in the Championship last season and must make their ground a feared venue if they want to stay up.

Brentford have dismissed worries over Ivan Toney’s absence by going unbeaten in their first three league games, with Bryan Mbeumo leading the way with three goals.

Bournemouth have suffered defeats to Liverpool and Tottenham since drawing with West Ham on the opening weekend and a trip to the Gtech Community Stadium is no easier when it comes to getting points on the board.

Thomas Frank’s Bees are favourites at home but couldn’t close out a victory against Crystal Palace as Joachim Andersen grabbed a late equaliser.

Tottenham’s hopes of silverware took an early-season blow as a rotated side was beaten on penalties at Fulham in the Carabao Cup. Spurs have, however, looked more secure and threatening in back-to-back league wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth.

Ange Postecoglou’s side visit Vincent Kompany and Burnley on Saturday. The Clarets have scored once but conceded five in their first two games, being seen off 3-1 by Aston Villa last time out.

However, a fixture against a Tottenham side whose ego has just been bruised by a cup exit could be a good opportunity for Burnley to earn their first points of the season.

Chelsea’s summer spending spree continued right up to the window’s deadline day and now their outlay will be judged on the pitch – until January, that is.

Mauricio Pochettino has two wins on the trot in all competitions and has an appealing run of fixtures to figure out his strongest Blues starting XI. Nottingham Forest are the latest visitors to Stamford Bridge and enter the fixture off two straight defeats.

Raheem Sterling looked back at his best with a two-goal display against Luton and has a point to prove after being left out of the latest England squad.

Fulham haven’t won any of their last 20 meetings with Manchester City, their last victory being a 3-1 success at the Etihad Stadium in April 2009. The odds are stacked quite heavily in the home side’s favour here.

City have a maximum of nine points from their first three games, conceding just once so far, but are still without talismanic midfielder Kevin De Bruyne through injury. John Stones is targeting a return after the international break, so there are areas Fulham may look to target.

Erling Haaland has three league goals in as many games and netted twice against the Cottagers last season.

Brighton and Newcastle discovered their opponents for their upcoming European ventures in midweek and meet in a fascinating evening clash on the south coast.

The Seagulls were impressive in consecutive 4-1 thrashings of Luton and Wolves but were ripped open at home by West Ham as David Moyes checked the progress made by opposite number Roberto De Zerbi.

However, the Magpies have made an inauspicious start with back-to-back losses to Manchester City and Liverpool and could be vulnerable to Brighton’s sharp attacking forays.
