Brighton V Chelsea, Newcastle V Aston Villa: Premier League – Live

That result puts City back in their usual spot: atop the Premier League table. Let’s see how this baby changes this afternoon, then.

The first Premier League result of the day is in. Manchester City have beaten Leicester City thanks to a typically superb Kevin De Bruyne free kick. If you want details, Barry Glendenning, like a pint of plain, is your only man.

Bournemouth make three changes to the side that was on the wrong side of a couple of borderline handball decisions at West Ham on Monday evening. Kieffer Moore and Jordan Zemura are in, as is goalkeeper Mark Travers, who replaces the hamstrung Neto. Spurs made six changes from the draw with Sporting Lisbon, Davinson Sanchez, Clement Lenglet, Emerson Royal, Yves Bissouma, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon earning recalls. Eric Dier is one of the six stood down, presumably either rested or tasked with boning up on the offside law.

Brentford and Wolves were both gubbed 4-0 last time out, by Aston Villa and Leicester City respectively. The Bees respond by calling up Ben Mee, Josh Dasilva and Yoane Wissa, while Wolves welcome back Boubacar Traore and Nelson Semedo. Diego Costa shrugs off a knock picked up in training and starts for the visitors.

Just the one change for Crystal Palace, who were routed 3-0 at Everton last weekend, Jordan Ayew making way for Jeff Schlupp. Southampton also make one swap, with Che Adams replacing Adam Armstrong. Nathaniel Clyne is on the Palace bench, available for the first time since being stretchered off against Chelsea at the start of the month.

Brighton make a couple of changes to the side downed at Manchester City last time out, Kaoru Mitoma and Pervis Estupinan grabbing back their shirts. Chelsea boss Graham Potter, returning to his old stomping ground, recalls Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Potter reportedly received “a mixed response” when he disembarked the Chelsea bus.

Newcastle, coming off the back of that highly impressive 2-1 win at Tottenham, name an unchanged side today. So do their opponents Aston Villa, everyone earning their start after demolishing Brentford within 15 minutes last weekend. Allan Saint-Maximin returns from his hamstring injury to take a spot on the Newcastle bench, while Aaron Danks takes charge of Villa for the final time before Unai Emery arrives.
