5 things to watch out in this weekend's Premier League fixture

Week 3 of the 2018-19 Season in the Premier League kicks off with Champions vs Champions, Manchester City visiting Molineux and the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers, which promises to be quite a game of football.

Can Arsenal get off the mark and add to West Ham's woes?

It has been a hard opening to the season for Wolves with defeat at Leicester City following a home draw against Everton on the opening weekend.

Next in the firing line for Pep Guardiola's side is newly promoted Wolves, and the Midlands outfit has earned just a single point from their opening fixtures against Everton and Southampton.

The statistics show just how influential Silva has been since joining Manchester City from Valencia in 2010.

A Carabao Cup match nearly a year ago is not the ideal guide for how this weekend's game will go, but Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo can still take encouragement from his side's performance, as City eventually triumphed on penalties after a 0-0 draw during the 2017/18 season.

Silva was in excellent form as he started his first Premier League game of the season during City's 6-1 win over Huddersfield at the weekend, which included a goal from the Spanish playmaker.

"There was a little lack of rhythm sometimes but I am satisfied in general with the performance".

Short victory but an important one for Liverpool.

Markets rattled as Turkish lira dives
Copper prices, meanwhile, often seen as a proxy for global economic growth, were down 1 percent at $6,131 a tonne. The weakness of the Turkish currency has rippled through global markets.

The Red Devils finished second in the Premier League last season, that in itself is perhaps something that shouldn't be sniffed at.

But Liverpool had to withstand a few nervy moments with £65-million goalkeeper Alisson Becker producing a vital save to deny Pascal Gross two minutes from time to seal a third consecutive clean sheet.

It does seem that there is plenty wrong at United and this situation represents a real test of Mourinho's managerial talents to see if he can steady things before the pressure on him builds.

"The problem we had in the last three years from Vincent was him being ready".

"For tonight it's all good, but a lot of work to do". "We deserved the three points and I think nobody doubts that". It is doubtful we will get a goal-fest at Old Trafford but what we will get is a tactically intriguing game that could have big top four implications. They looked more in control and defended better than they did against the Magpies with Harry Kane finally getting a goal in August.

The 25-year-old captained United in their first two games this season, and scored from the penalty spot in both.

No one could quite believe what they were seeing, with Gary Neville one of the first high-profile names to react to the incident.

Robin van Persie will go down as one of the Premier League's best imports.
