Premier League Matchday 1 Preview │ The Data Day Live │ August 5

Join the team from The Analyst for a Premier League matchday 1 preview. That’s right, it’s back. The 30th year of the competition gets underway tonight as Crystal Palace welcome an Arsenal side where expectations of success are high.

Matt Furniss, Oliver Hopkins and Graham Bell are your guides for our Premier League matchday 1 preview which also takes a look at the predictions our supercomputer has provided for the weekend’s games and, as you’ll hear, some of our team don’t necessarily agree with what it has to say!
