LIVE UPDATE: English Premier League (Week 6)

Hello good afternoon and welcome along!
Your Super Sunday starts here! We have two intriguing games for your pleasure this afternoon, starting with this London derby.

Chelsea visits London rivals West Ham in the headline act of the top flight weekend fixtures, where both managers will be intent on fitting the bill.
Before Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City took the Premier League by storm last season, the ‘best league in the world’ had fallen into somewhat of a rut, three pragmatic managers winning three titles with a rather pragmatic approach.

Before Jose Mourinho, Claudio Ranieri and Antonio Conte won their titles with the emphasis on defence, Manuel Pellegrini claimed Manchester City’s second Premier League trophy with football very much on the front foot.

With the Hammers preferring the Chilean to the pragmatic David Moyes, and Maurizio Sarri replacing Conte, it may seem far more than a side with just one win from five meeting the leaders at London Stadium this weekend.

Today’s clash may well end up in a simple Chelsea victory, as many will predict, but whatever happens, it could well be a sign that the Premier League is turning back in favour of those with a taste for the cavalier approach.

Elsewhere, your tea-time fare is Arsenal v Everton. The Toffees have not won in 22 years away to the Gunners.

So, a gimme for Unai Emery? Or could Theo Walcott stick one on his old employers?

That game is at 3pm GMT. Chelsea kicks us off at 12:30 GMT
Stay with us for all the updates.
