Team news/injuries

Of the top six teams in England, Man United and Chelsea are in the midst of an injury crisis. The Red Devils will be without Pogba, Martial, Shaw, Dalot, and Bailly who have all been ruled out, while Lingard and Wan-Bissaka are doubts for the Leicester clash. The Blues, meanwhile, will have to make do without Kante, Hudson-Odoi, and Loftus-Cheek, with Emerson being a doubt and Rudiger likely to make the bench.

Lacazette has been ruled out for Arsenal until October due to a reoccurring ankle issue, joining Bellerin, Tierney, and Mavropanos on the sidelines. Willock is a doubt while Holding isn’t expected to start despite returning from injury. Liverpool’s only major absentees so far are Keita and Alisson.

Tottenham have several concerns. Summer signing Lo Celso has been ruled out until November due to a hip injury while the likes of Sanchez, Dier, Sessegnon, and Ndombele are all doubts. As for Man City, the reigning champions have lost Laporte until February due to a knee injury, joining Sane on their list of long-term absentees.

Key stats

  • Norwich City, the champions of the Championship, take on Man City, the champions of the Premier League. One interest fact is the amount it took to build each squad, with the Citizens spending 84 times what the Canaries spent to build their team.

  • Arsenal will travel to Watford. The last time these two sides met was on April 15 and since then Aubameyang has outscored the Hornets, netting 12 times compared to their oppositions 10 goals.

  • Liverpool haven’t lost any of their last 23 home games against Newcastle.

  • Leicester City take on a struggling Man United side and will be keen on getting a win. However, the Foxes have won only once in their last 20 league encounters with the Red Devils.

What is social media saying ahead of Matchday 5?

Can Solskjaer guide Man Utd out of their slump?

Gone are the “Ole is at the wheel” chants. With Man United failing to win any of their last three games, drawing twice and losing at home to Crystal Palace in drab fashion, some are even starting to turn on the man everyone expected to be their savior.

Injuries aren’t helping Solskjaer. He will be without five key first-team players for their crucial clash with Leicester. Failure to win would mean he would have only three victories from 17 games. He must avoid that at any cost. It will be interesting to watch.
