A guide to Sunday’s Premier League fixtures – what games are on today

This year’s Premier League title race has already been more thrilling than the last season’s two-horse charge between Arsenal and Manchester City. Last season, only three teams were top of the table during the campaign. But, this term, as many as seven teams have already occupied the top spot. Current leaders Liverpool headline Sunday’s action-packed array of fixtures, with three of the top four teams involved. The Sunday fixtures could add another twist to this season’s thrilling title battle.

Roberto De Zerbi expressed concerns about the European football’s negative impact on his Brighton squad this season. He pointed out that the team is playing every three days this season and that they want to compete in every competition. Arsenal, on the other hand, being a more seasoned European competitor, have performed better after their European contests. The Gunners not only have two days of extra rest compared to Brighton but were also able to heavily rotate their squad for their recent match against PSV Eindhoven.

Brentford has a historical advantage over Aston Villa, as they have not lost a home game to Aston Villa since 1953. Brentford has had a rough patch lately, with four defeats in their last five games. However, they usually put up a strong performance against top teams. Aston Villa should be cautious when they face Brentford on Sunday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be visiting West Ham United, where Craig Dawson will face his former team. Dawson has been praised for being “low maintenance with real high output”. The game marks the return of Gary O’Neil to the London Stadium, where he had previously played against David Moyes’ Everton. Despite current team successes, Wolves have a tall hurdle in West Ham, who currently sit fourth in the league.

Liverpool will host Manchester United at Anfield, amid a redeveloped Anfield Road Stand which is expected to welcome the largest crowd in 50 years. The Reds have maintained an impeccable record at home this season, winning all their games. On the other hand, Manchester United have had a hard time winning away games against top teams. Stripped of their suspended club captain Bruno Fernandes, United will face a daunting task at Anfield, aiming to avoid a repeat of a humiliating 7-0 defeat like their last trip to the Liverpool stadium.

The Premier League action on Sunday promises to be very exciting, with all the top teams in contention. Fans should gear up for an explosive day of football as the title race continues to heat up. Whether there will be more surprising results remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – football fans should not miss this ultimate Premier League showdown.
