Current EPL Table Before Manchester United, Chelsea, And Arsenal Saturday's Showdown

Manchester United vs Everton;

Manchester United will resume their Premier League campaign at home to Everton on Saturday afternoon. United is currently fourth in the table, one point behind leaders Liverpool, while Everton occupies fifth, level on points (13) with their opponents at Old Trafford this weekend.

Manchester United will again be without the services of Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo through injury, while club captain Harry Maguire is out until after the international break with a calf problem.

Luke Shaw missed out against Villarreal on Wednesday due to a slight muscular issue but is expected to return to the XI for this match, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka is available, with his ban only relating to European games.

Victor Lindelof should keep his spot at the back, but there will be changes from the clash against the Yellow Submarine, with Nemanja Matic and Fred potentially coming into the midfield, while Jadon Sancho might drop down to the bench, allowing Paul Pogba to move to the left.

Chelsea vs Southampton;

Chelsea welcomes winless Southampton to Stamford Bridge for Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash.

Chelsea should be able to welcome Mason Mount back in time from a minor knock for this game, with the England international a sure-fire starter over Hakim Ziyech after the Moroccan lasted just 62 minutes of the Juve defeat.

However, Christian Pulisic and Reece James both remain in the treatment room with ankle injuries, while N'Golo Kante is isolating after returning a positive coronavirus test.

Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion;

Brighton & Hove Albion will welcome a steadily improving Arsenal to the Amex Stadium for Saturday evening's Premier League battle.

Granit Xhaka returns from suspension for the visit of Tottenham, but the midfielder suffered a 'significant' knee injury late on and is now facing approximately three months on the sidelines.

Albert Sambi Lokonga is the most likely candidate to fill in alongside Thomas Partey for the remainder of the calendar year, but Arteta otherwise has a clean bill of health and has no reason to alter a winning formula.

Here's how the EPL table currently looks like:

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