Broadcast Guide | Massive weekend of PREMIER LEAGUE action on Optus Sport

For the first time in Premier League history, not a single team is undefeated after six match weeks.

Sitting 13th on the table, heavyweights Manchester City will look to make their run up the table when they visit Sheffield United on Saturday evening.

Champions Liverpool have definitely become the hunted this season, and with defensive talisman Virgil van Dijk unlikely to kick another ball this term and Fabinho the latest defensive injury, Jurgen Klopp’s team don’t appear the infallible force they were en route to breaking their title drought.

Despite their defensive woes, they still sit equal top ahead of their clash with West Ham United on Sunday morning.

After tasting defeat for the first time this season, Aston Villa won’t have it any easier when they take on Southampton on Sunday night, who according to Optus Sport’s Daniel Storey have become, arguably, the team with the most obvious identity in the Premier League.

Sitting in 15th and just three spots outside of the the relegation zone, Manchester United’s weekend doesn’t get any easier when they take on an Arsenal side coming off back to back losses on Monday morning.

A stunning hat-trick from Patrick Bamford propelled Leeds United up the Premier League table, and while there’s a long way to go, a win against Leicester City on Tuesday morning, might see them inside the top four by the end of the round, with plenty of Australian football fans daring to dream about the possibility of a fairy-tale season!

Live coverage gets underway with our new look pre-game show Countdown to Kick-Off on Saturday at 10pm.

Host Richard Bayliss will be joined by Mark Schwarzer, John Aloisi, Michael Bridges and Carl Robinson for an extensive 90-minute look ahead of the weekend’s matches. Countdown to Kick-Off will be live on Optus Sport as well as Facebook and YouTube, where viewers can interact with the panel.
