10 matches, 10 sentences; it really is that simple.
Manchester United v Crystal Palace:
It is time to unleash Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa – or face the ire of the fans – in a match that United should win comfortably.
Aston Villa v Newcastle United:
Aston Villa will heap more despair on a Magpies’ fan-base that deserves considerably better.
Fulham v West Bromwich Albion:
A narrow home win beckons…and the death-spot on Match of the Day.
Hull City v Cardiff City:
These are the matches that will define the two sides’ seasons; an early must-win game for two clubs who will know the importance of every last point, and surely draw as a result.
Stoke City v Manchester City:
Rarely will a manager be more desperate to get one over his former side, and rarely will one be more disappointed when he doesn’t.
Sunderland v Arsenal:
Mesut Ozil will show Paolo Di Canio that when it comes to summer signings, quality trumps quantity.
Tottenham Hotspur v Norwich City:
The beginning of a new era for Spurs, and with probable appearances for Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, another three points look likely.
Everton v Chelsea:
Everton must start scoring, and without Romelu Lukaku, it is up to their misfiring forwards to lead the way, although a hard-fought draw looks the most likely outcome.
Southampton v West Ham United:
The Saints should continue their good start to the season against a depleted Hammers side, with Rickie Lambert generating a few more headlines.
Swansea City v Liverpool:
1-0 to Liverpool.
