FIVE Premier League games at 3pm. The football gods are really spoiling us. Brentford v West Ham sees a London derby of west vs east, the Hammers off the back of walloping Arsenal, the Bees after swarming all over Chelsea. Burnley v Crystal Palace is a chance for Vin Kompany to win a home game, they had a bad run of big boys to start with but after last week’s loss at Bournemouth, this is a vital game for the Clarets. Everton v Brighton: what a job Sean Dyche is doing, by the way, is the sheen wearing off Roberto De Zerbi? Manchester City v Bournemouth: lambs to the slaughter but how much will Pep Guardiola praise Andoni Iraola afterwards? And Sheffield United v Wolves: no Pedro Neto for Wolves, so does that mean Blades can land a first win? You’d still have to say that’s unlikely.

All that and the hottest action from the EFL and across Europe. Join me.

Preamble

FIVE Premier League games at 3pm. The football gods are really spoiling us. Brentford v West Ham sees a London derby of west vs east, the Hammers off the back of walloping Arsenal, the Bees after swarming all over Chelsea. Burnley v Crystal Palace is a chance for Vin Kompany to win a home game, they had a bad run of big boys to start with but after last week’s loss at Bournemouth, this is a vital game for the Clarets. Everton v Brighton: what a job Sean Dyche is doing, by the way, is the sheen wearing off Roberto De Zerbi? Manchester City v Bournemouth: lambs to the slaughter but how much will Pep Guardiola praise Andoni Iraola afterwards? And Sheffield United v Wolves: no Pedro Neto for Wolves, so does that mean Blades can land a first win? You’d still have to say that’s unlikely.

All that and the hottest action from the EFL and across Europe. Join me.
