We believe that congratulations are in order as we preview the action in gameweek three of Premier League season.

Yes, there were great results for West Ham, Brighton, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham last time out as they maintained their 100% record in the 2021-22 league season. But there was also joy for each and every one of you who voted in our Twitter polls because you had the perfect weekend, going three from three to propel yourselves to the top of our season long table and, perhaps, more importantly ahead of our super computer.

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.

Meanwhile, here’s the outcomes our contributors, the win probability model and you believe will happen in our three key games in gameweek 3 of the Premier League.
