Arsenal v Liverpool - Super Sunday, 4pm
The injuries are a major concern for Arsenal. They have one centre forward in Olivier Giroud when their rivals have three or four each. Don't tell me Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott are centre forwards.
They might be able to step in for one or two games but you are not going to win the Premier League that way.
As for Liverpool, they are decent going forward, they are quick and score goals on the break, but again, defensively they are not too good either. I see plenty of goals in this one.
Chelsea v West Ham - Monday Night Football
It's a difficult start for both teams but I'm going for Chelsea to win the league so I'm going for a Chelsea win here too. People say they weren't great defensively last season but Conte is a great tactician and they will improve.

If N'Golo Kante gets around Dimitri Payet, I don't see Payet touching the ball too often. He's a top player and you don't want to be giving away free-kicks around the box, but he's not really going to run away from defenders.
Hull City v Leicester City - Saturday, Live Premier League, 12.30pm
It's a good first game for Leicester but the result does depend how Hull approach it. I think they will probably sit back and be pretty defensive.

Still, even if they do, I don't see anything other than a win for Claudio Ranieri's side. I just don't think it is right to get rid of your manager so close to the season, like Hull did with Steve Bruce, and I can't see how they will be able to live with Leicester in attack.
Crystal Palace v West Brom - Saturday, 3pm
What Palace need to do this season under Alan Pardew is to break their slumps quicker than they have done in the past. They can reel off six wins in a row but they can lose eight games on the spin too, and that's why they are so inconsistent. If Pardew can sort that out I think they'll have a good season.

West Brom will go to Selhurst Park on Saturday to frustrate their opponents, but I think Palace will just about have enough to break them down before the end of the game.
Everton v Tottenham - Saturday, 3pm
I have played at Everton enough times to know this is a tricky first game for Tottenham. It's a difficult place to play, especially on the opening day, and I like Ronald Koeman's business so far - selling John Stones for £47.5m and buying Ashley Williams for £12m, I like that.

For Spurs, it depends if there is a hangover from Euro 2016 for players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Tottenham have a team already but I feel they need to add more to their squad because they're a bit light.
I don't think they've done enough yet to go on and win the Premier League.
Man City v Sunderland - Saturday, 5.30pm
There won't be a lot between the two teams in this match. David Moyes' Sunderland will go to the Etihad to make it hard for Man City, but as the game goes on, I think Pep Guardiola's side will break them down.

They will be patient, and to be fair to Moyes, it's not the best of starts for Sunderland.
