However, it’s a new week of match-ups in the Premier League and The Analyst Hat-Trick is back to look forward to the key action involving some of those clubs with perfect records. Both West Ham and Brighton have rarely started a season with three successive victories but they will be hoping to achieve that feat against Crystal Palace and Everton respectively. Meanwhile, Anfield will play host to the clash between Liverpool and Chelsea where Thomas Tuchel will be hoping to become just the fourth manager to record three consecutive victories over Jurgen Klopp.
All of those games will come with the insights you would expect from Opta Joe but we also have the win probability outcomes for each and every Premier League game this weekend.
