West Ham versus Arsenal was selected as one of the pilot events to test – on Government guidance – the return of spectators to elite sporting fixtures, as the Hammers go up against the early league leaders.

Everton take on Tottenham after kicking off with a 4-0 away win, Bristol City were on the wrong end of that scoreline and now go to a Chelsea side needing to take maximum points from their first home game.

Manchester United visit Birmingham City buoyed by holding the reigning champions, not to mention some high-profile signings in the week.

Brighton have a challenging fixture at Manchester City, while Reading and Aston Villa go head-to-head at the Madejski Stadium, with both looking to get off the mark.
