Premier League broadcast details, 2-3 October 2021 – All times EAT
The pick of matches from the Premier League for this weekend sees Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield on the early evening of Sunday 3 October.
It is a meeting of the champions of the past two seasons and two of the main contenders for the title in 2021-22.
City have shrugged off their slow start and look in fine nick heading into this clash on Merseyside, with manager Pep Guardiola calling on his team to continue their momentum.
“The last three weeks were so good. The way we trained was a little bit of a surprise after what we achieved last season,” said the Citizens’ boss.
“The other side is that it is our sixth season together. We know each other quite well, except Jack [Grealish]. They know exactly what we want to do, what we want to practice, and I think the mechanism is much better.”
The round opens with the other Manchester v Merseyside battle, as United welcome Everton to Old Trafford for the early kick-off on Saturday 2 October.
This clash sees Rafael Benitez looking to outwit counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and continue to build on the promise the Toffees have shown since the Spaniard’s arrival.
“They know we are working really hard to improve the players, improve every individual player and the team. The fans know and appreciate that,” said Benitez.
“They know how the team finished last year and can see the difference in commitment and style of football. Everything is about improving what we have. At the same time, we cannot talk about that in three months if we do not perform.”
Other key clashes for this weekend include Chelsea hosting Southampton at Stamford Bridge; Arsenal facing a tough trip to the South Coast to take on Graham Potter’s well-drilled Brighton & Hove Albion; and a London derby between West Ham United and Brentford.
