EPL 2021-22, Matchday 5 preview: Tottenham Hotspur-Chelsea clash - The prime headliner

Matchday 5 commitments of the English Premier League 2021-22 began on Friday evening, with Newcastle United drawing 1-1 against Leeds United. Meanwhile, the big teams would play on Saturday and Sunday as we present the matchday preview.

Arsenal should have it easy against Burnley
After losing three successive opening games, 17th-placed Arsenal earned its maiden win last week against newly-promoted Norwich City. It travels to take on 19th-placed Burnley on Saturday, which should again be an easy task for the Gunners. A win could take Arsenal to the tenth spot, while a loss could again send it down to the bottom.

Manchester City looks to demolish Southampton
Defending champion City is known to be unstoppable at home. Being up against 14th-placed Southampton, the fifth-placed Cityzens would look to exterminate the Saints at the Etihad Stadium. A win could take City to the top spot, while a loss could see it dropping to ninth.

Liverpool aims to obliterate Crystal Palace
Liverpool has been on a decent start and placed third, as it hosts 11th-placed Crystal Palace on Saturday. It should be an easy task for The Reds, as a win could take it to the top, while a loss could see it dropping to eighth.

Leicester City travels to outplay Brighton and Hove Albion
Ninth-placed Leicester has not had the best start to the season, as it looks to make amends when it travels to take on sixth-placed  Brighton. Although the Seagulls might be ahead of the Foxes, the latter is better than the former. Leicester is the favourite here, while Brighton has the home advantage. A win for the former could take it to the sixth spot; a loss could drop it to anywhere between 15 and 17.

Manchester United takes on an unpredictable West Ham United
United is off to a great start, staying atop the table, as it would travel to London to take on eighth-placed West Ham. Although it might look like an easy job for the Red Devils, it won't be exactly easy. Nonetheless, United might sneak through, considering it is on a record 28-game unbeaten away run in the tournament. A win for the side would help it maintain the top spot, while a loss could drop it to eighth.

Tottenham Hotspur entertains Chelsea in a London derby
In the London derby, seventh-placed Tottenham is up against second-placed Chelsea. As per the current form, the latter is the favourite, but the former cannot be ruled out, especially while playing at home. A win for Spurs could take it back to the top, while a loss could drop it to ninth. As for The Blues, a win rises it to the top, while a loss could drop it to eighth.
