Current EPL Table Before Arsenal, Tottenham, And Everton's Showdown

Round 8 of the 2021/22 English Premier League season has produced some fantastic results so far with loads of goals to enjoy.

Saturday's fixtures started with a 5-0 win at Vicarage Road Stadium between Liverpool and Watford; Chelsea beat Brentford at home; Manchester continue their winless run against Leicester City; while Manchester City won 2-0 against Burnley.

Sunday fixtures will see Newcastle United take on Tottenham Everton against West Ham. And on Monday, Arsenal takes on Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

Newcastle United vs Tottenham:

Newcastle United's new era begins on the pitch at St James' Park on Sunday afternoon, as the Magpies welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Tyneside in the Premier League.

The hosts lost 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final game of the Mike Ashley era, while Spurs claimed a confidence-boosting 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Nuno Espirito Santo's record in London derbies is already looking bleak following three successive defeats to Crystal Palace, Chelsea, and Arsenal last month, but the Lilywhites managed to claim a crucial win over Aston Villa just before the international break.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup: Lloris; Tanganga, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Skipp; Lucas, Ndombele, Son; Kane

Everton vs West Ham United:

Everton and West Ham United will both seek a return to winning ways in the Premier League when the two European chasers lock horns at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees managed to take a point home from their clash with Manchester United before the international break, while the Hammers fell to defeat against Brentford.

The headlines at Old Trafford may have been dominated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo, but take nothing away from Everton's performance at the Theatre of Dreams as they came away with a 1-1 draw.

Anthony Martial initially justified his selection with the game's opening goal just before the break, but Everton new boy Andros Townsend continued his hot streak with the equalizer after a sweeping second-half counter-attack to hand Rafael Benitez yet another positive result.

Everton possible starting lineup: Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne; Townsend, Doucoure, Allan, Gordon; Gray, Rondon

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace:

Two ex-ex-Arsenal midfielders prepare to lock horns in the dugout this week, as the Gunners welcome Patrick Vieira's Crystal Palace to the Emirates in Monday's Premier League clash.

Mikel Arteta's side drew 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break, while the Eagles took a point of their own in a meeting with Leicester City.

The Arsenal from the first 45 minutes of their North London derby win over Tottenham Hotspur was nowhere to be seen on the South Coast, as Arteta's side was nullified and were arguably fortunate to come away with a point at the Amex Stadium.

Arsenal possible starting lineup: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Lokonga; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang

Here's how the EPL table currently looks like:

Chelsea is on top of the table at the moment with Liverpool following closely behind in second place while Manchester City is third on the log.

Chelsea remains at 1st place after their 1-0 win over Brentford who is in 7th place on the log.
