Everything is back to normal in the Premier League and this weekend the 10 matches corresponding to matchday 9 will be played.
The leader, Arsenal, will receive Tottenham, third, in a historic North London derby with first place at stake.
Manchester City will also be in the derby and will play against a Manchester United that has been improving and has 4 wins in a row (in the prem).
The surprising Brighton, fourth in the tournament, will have to visit Liverpool who has not yet managed to show the same game as last season.
Lastly, Mitrovic’s Fulham wants to continue at the top of the table and for that, they will have to beat Newcastle who will wait until the last minute for Alexander Isak.

Arsenal once again exposes its leadership and this time against a direct rival. They have 18 points after 6 wins and only 1 loss, taking a point away from their closest and also a classic rival, so they are going to come out with everything. Casualties of the international break include injuries to Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey, in addition to Mohamed Elneny and Emile Smith Rowe, but Oleksandr Zinchenko is expected to play.
Very good start for Tottenham who can reach the top if they beat Arsenal in the Emirates. There is no more motivating scenario for the Spurs than to take first place from their eternal rival and at their home, so Antonio Conte will not hold anything back. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is in doubt due to injury.

Another great derby this weekend. Manchester City is second, just 1 point behind Arsenal, so they have to win this Sunday, but Pep Guardiola will have a big loss and that is the defender John Stones, who was injured with the England National Team. However, an in-form Manuel Akanji will be able to replace him. In addition, they have Erling Haaland, who has 11 goals in 7 games and is the top scorer in the Premier League.
Manchester United arrives at the derby at a great moment. After a bad start, they managed to get back on track and there are now 4 wins in a row in the league, among which those achieved against Liverpool (2-1) and Arsenal (3-1) stand out. Coach Erik ten Hag changed the face of the team and now they are fifth with 12 points and 1 game less.

It is not the same Liverpool of last season. Sadio Mané was an even more fundamental piece than was thought, since it was the only big change that the team had, and despite having Mo Salah, Luis Díaz, and Darwin Núñez, they have not been able to show the same level of play. With 9 points they are in eighth place with half the points of the leader, Arsenal.
Brighton continues to surprise and is in fourth place with 13 points and 1 game less. They have only lost 1 game this season (2-1 with Fulham) and have found the magic trident in Pascal Gross, Alexis Mac Allister, and Leandro Trossard. They have scored 9 of the team’s 11 goals (Moisés Caicedo scored another and there was an own goal) and they promise to keep improving.

A great Aleksandar Mitrovic leads this Fulham that was promoted this year but fights up. The Serbian striker has scored 6 goals this season in 7 games with his team, in addition to scoring 4 goals in 2 games with his National Team in the UEFA Nations League this week, achieving promotion to League A. The Londoners are sixth with 11 points, but they have to improve on defense.
Newcastle is in the middle of the table but, despite the investment, they have not been able to make good presentations. They won their first game against Nottingham (2-0) and haven’t done it since. 5 draws and 1 loss (against Liverpool 2-1) is what the ‘Magpies’ have achieved, and their new signing, Alexander Isak, has 2 goals in 3 games, but they don’t know if he can recover from his injury for this Weekend.
Fulham vs. Newcastle Betting Pick: Fulham
