The Big Friday Premier League Quiz

·2-min read

The Premier League is not quite in full swing as we approach the third round of matches, but we already have some teams in "crisis", so it feels like it is.

Champions Manchester City lead the way after two wins from two and will look to make it three at Newcastle United, whereas Liverpool are still looking for their first victory following a frustrating draw with Crystal Palace that saw new signing Darwin Nunez see red.

Jurgen Klopp's men will be hoping to secure their first win at the home of their old rival, Manchester United, who are bottom for the first time in almost 30 years after a 4-0 humbling at the hands of Brentford.

Arsenal travel to Bournemouth looking to continue their bright start, while Chelsea head to Leeds United hoping to erase the memory of their last-minute draw with Tottenham last weekend.

Everton go in search of their first points of the season at home to Nottingham Forest, West Ham host Brighton and Hove Albion also looking to get on the board, and Steven Gerrard meets another former Premier League midfield foe in the dugout in the form of Patrick Vieira and his Crystal Palace side.
