Arsenal to maintain lead on the league log at Leeds

Before Liverpool and City tussle on Sunday, league leaders Arsenal can extend their advantage at the top of the table with victory at Leeds United, where the hosts are unbeaten at home so far this term.

Arsenal have won eight of their nine league games this season – only in 1903-04 (in the second tier) have they won as many as nine of their opening 10 games to a league campaign.

Goals have flowed for the Gunners too, scoring three in each of their last three league games.

Another improving London side Chelsea travel to Aston Villa, where the pressure is mounting on manager Steven Gerrard following the Midlands club’s disappointing start to the season.

Graham Potter is still new to the coach’s role at Chelsea, but has already overseen better results, with his side having won four and drawn one in all competitions since he took charge.

Manchester United who have enjoyed a mixed start to the season face a tough test on Sunday as they host high-flying Newcastle United, where a win for the visitors will see them climb above their opponents in the standings.

Elsewhere, third-placed Tottenham Hotspur welcome Everton to the capital on Saturday looking to make it three wins in a row in all competitions.
