Well, that was an interesting international break off the pitch for the Premier League.

The team that currently sits in 19th place in the table is now the richest club on the planet, after Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) became the newest owners after years of negotiations.

Well that might mean Kylian Mbappe, Erling Håland, and all manner of superstar down the road, right now, the Magpies need to just survive the drop for the season.

But there are other games that are in focus today. The early game sees Watford, which ended Liverpool's unbeaten run last year, host the Reds.

The 10 a.m. match that looks interesting sees Norwich City host Brighton & Hove Albion while current UEFA Champions League holders Chelsea will be at surprise side Brentford.

I am going to look at the teams near the top of the table to continue winning, in what might be one of the best title races in recent memory.
