The Premier League Matchday 8 slate closes on Monday with a compelling match between Arsenal and Crystal Palace as Patrick Vieira coaches against his former team for the first time.
The Gunners (13th, 10 points) will be looking to jump into the Premier League top 10 with a win as they continue their push for a Champions League place. Meanwhile, Palace (14th, 7 points) can catch Arsenal in the standings with a victory.
At the top of the table, the Premier League’s top three all won their matches this weekend and maintain their order in the standings: 1. Chelsea, 2. Liverpool, 3. Man City. It’s looking like this season could turn into a three-horse race with their pursuers losing ground. Brighton (4th, 15 points) was held to a 0-0 draw at last-place Norwich and Manchester United (6th, 14 points) and Brentford (9th, 12 points) both lost.
