The Premiership rolls on after midweek games in Europe for the top teams.
In the Premiership Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to secure his first win at Liverpool in his first home league match at Anfield after a 1-1 draw in the Europa League in midweek. Liverpool should just win this one against Saints but it won’t be easy.
There are two local derbies on Sunday as Manchester United face Manchester City at home without David Silva and Sergio Aguero. We predict a high scoring draw.
Sam Allardyce’s Sunderland are at home in the Tyne Wear derby and are desperate for points. We think they will collect the three on offer at the Stadium of Light.

Soccer – Lallana calls for patience
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has warned the Anfield faithful that they will have to show patience as new head coach Jurgen Klopp tries to change things around at the club. Klopp has seen his new charges draw both of their first two games since he took over at the club, with Lallana confident that success will eventually come for the Merseysiders. Ahead of a Sunday league clash with former club Southampton, Lallana told the Echo: “It was never going to just change overnight. Maybe the reaction to him coming in was a bit over the top, but he’s a great manager who has had great success. “He’s asking people to do different things to what they were used to, so it will take a bit of time. “It’s not going to happen overnight, but I’m very confident we’re going to succeed under him.” Lallana is 15/4 with bet365 to score at any time against the Saints, with Liverpool 21/20 to claim a first victory under former Borussia Dortmund tactician Klopp.
Soccer – Vardy challenged by Ranieri
Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has challenged striker Jamie Vardy to continue his fine goalscoring form for the rest of the season. The 28-year-old England international has nine Premier League goals to his name already this season and is currently 8/1 with bet365 to finish the campaign as the top scorer in the English top-flight. And Ranieri has challenged Vardy to maintain his high standards and prove himself as one of the top forwards in the game. He told reporters ahead of a clash with Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium: “I hope he can continue, but football is strange. “It is not important to think about goal or no goal, but it is important for him to think about how he plays for the team. “It is the first year he has shown what he can do in the Premier League. He scored 16 in the Championship and now he starts to learn again and I hope he can improve again.”
