English Premier League Matchweek 4: Key games, odds, more originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The games start to add up as Matchday 4 of the 2022-23 English Premier League season kicks off on Saturday.

After Newcastle drew 3-3 against Manchester City on Matchday 3, Arsenal remain the only perfect team in the league after comfortably beating AFC Bournemouth 3-0 away. However, Mikel Arteta’s team will not have it so easy this week.

Let’s take a look at what Matchweek 4 has in store for us:

When is the first match of Matchday 4 of the English Premier League?

St. Mary’s Stadium will host the first game of Matchday 4 when Southampton take on Manchester United on Saturday at 7:30am ET. Both teams are coming off a win last week, with the Red Devils beating Liverpool in a thrilling duel at Old Trafford.

The last match will be on Sunday at 11:30 am ET as newly promoted Nottingham Forest host Tottenham. The Spurs are one of seven teams that have yet to lose.

What are the key matches of matchday 4 of the 2022 English Premier League season?

We’ll start with Brighton hosting Leeds United on Saturday. Managers Graham Potter (Brighton) and Jesse Marsch (Leeds) have gotten their respective teams off to a great start and are yet to lose, although one of them could suffer that fate. Leeds’ high-pressure tactics paid off last week against Chelsea in an upset 3-0 win, while Brighton beat West Ham 2-0 away.

The next game comes two and a half hours after Brighton-Leeds. Arsenal host newly promoted Fulham, another match in which both teams have no scratches on the loss column. Fulham drew with Liverpool in Matchweek 1 as manager Marco Silva has them playing a brand of football that could keep them going this season. It will be a tough test for the Gunners as they look to maintain their stellar form.

The final game to watch is Aston Villa against West Ham on Sunday at 9am ET. Both the Villains and the Hammers have been extremely disappointing at the start of the season, each having the quality of a top 10 team. Let’s see which team, if any, can pick up some form by racking up all three points.
