Two winless teams meet on Tyneside on Friday night when defeat for either will really set the alarm bells ringing. Newcastle have picked up just one point from their first four games and have the worst defensive record in the division with 12 goals conceded while Leeds have drawn twice and lost twice.
A 1-0 win at the King Power last weekend handed Manchester City their third straight victory and they are the heavy favourites as they welcome Southampton. The goals have been flying in at the Etihad this season, with Pep Guardiola’s side putting five past both Norwich and Arsenal in their two previous home league fixtures and six past RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
Leicester are yet to find their best form this season and look short of confidence as their Europa League campaign gets under way on Thursday night. The Foxes have lost two of their first four matches in the Premier League, losing 4-1 at West Ham last month and 1-0 at home to Manchester City on Saturday.
West Ham are back in Europe and will be determined to get off to get off to a flying start as they head to Croatia for their opening Europa League match. The Hammers are unbeaten in the Premier League after four matches but now begin the challenge of also competing in Europe, which could stretch their squad.
