Chelsea are flying high at the top of the table and welcome Man United to Stamford Bridge. Thomas Tuchel's side will be rubbing their hands together at the thought of making the situation at the Red Devils worse. Chelsea have been excellent defensively this season and their defenders have even been scoring goals. Reece James is the side's top goal scorer, the wing-back is constantly getting forward making runs that are difficult for the opposition to track and when in the position, he finishes like a striker. James optimises a Tuchel player combining pace, strength and desire with fantastic on the ball ability. The 21-year-old rates at 7.09 overall this season.
Arsenal's signing of Aaron Ramsdale for £25 million raised a few eyebrows after the young English keeper suffered back-to-back relegations from the Premier League. However, he has been fantastic for the Gunners since his arrival scoring a 7.21 rating across this campaign. Despite Arsenal's 4-0 defeat at Liverpool last weekend, Ramsdale still made several fine saves keeping the score down although he would have been disappointed at the manner of Liverpool's first goal of the night. Ramsdale will surely be busy again this week as Newcastle are in town looking for their first win of the season. New manager, Eddie Howe, is renowned for playing good attacking football and the Magpies scored three last week versus Brentford in his first game in charge.
Bernardo Silva has been one of the standout players in the division this season scoring four goals and assisting another. We know Pep Guardiola likes to rotate his team; however, Silva seems to be immune from being dropped in recent weeks his form has been so good. The Portuguese midfielder rates at 7.10 and will face a difficult afternoon this weekend against West Ham who have won four of their last five.
