Mohamed Salah to spearhead Liverpool win at Sheffield United, Arsenal to add to Manchester United's woes: Premier League predictions

Check out deputy sports editor Steve Luckings' predictions for this week's round of matches

This week's Premier League action kicks off on Saturday with leaders Liverpool travelling to Sheffield United.

United manager Chris Wilder said he may have to consider playing a "back 10" against Jurgen Klopp's cavaliers, and with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all rested for the midweek win against MK Dons, his defenders look set for a tough shift, although Senegal forward Mane is a doubt with a dead leg.

Liverpool will look to keep up their winning start to the campaign that sees them five points clear of second-placed Manchester City after six matches.

Pep Guardiola's side are in scintillating form though, with 11 goals in two matches this past week.

The champions hammered a hapless Watford 8-0 on Saturday and followed that up with a comfortable 3-0 win over Preston North End to reach the last-16 of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

They travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton, who will be looking to end a two-game losing streak in Saturday's late kick off.

Sunday sees Leicester City take on Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium while the pick of Matchday 7 matches sees Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to take on a Manchester United side who needed penalties to see off League One Rochdale on Wednesday night.

Ahead of the games, deputy sports editor Steve Luckings provides his predictions in the photo gallery above.
