English Premier League Week 3 Fixtures, Stream, Times: Aug 26
LONDON, Sporting Alert — English Premier League fixtures, live streaming and television coverage for Week 3 on August 26 and 27.
The English Premier League game of the week will come from Anfield where Liverpool will take on Arsenal in the Super Sunday fixtures.
Both teams are off to a less to exciting start to the season, while there is a certain unsettledness in both camps due to the lack of commitment shown by a number of top players in both clubs.
Liverpool squeezed out a narrow 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the last outing, but the uncertainty and unavailability of star playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who has desires to leave for Barcelona, continue to dominate the headlines.
Like the Reds, Arsenal are battling with disgruntled players, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sitting on the forefront.
On the field, the Gunners head into Sunday’s clash hoping to bounce back from the 1-0 defeat at Stoke City last weekend, but manager Arsene Wenger is also aware of the situation off the pitch.
“I want to keep my best players. I only have one target: to keep everybody on board,” said Wenger, who spoke about Oxlade-Chamberlain’s decision to turn down a new contract offer.
“I think we invested a lot of time, confidence and money on players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who we bought at a young age. For me, they have a responsibility for the future of this club because Alex will be one of the big English players in the coming years.
“I personally am highly determined to keep him here at the club and I hope he will commit.”
Meanwhile, champions Chelsea will entertain a new-look Everton side that is being led by Wayne Rooney, who has scored two goals in the opening two games of the season since returning to Goodison Park from Manchester United.
Chelsea, after losing to Burnley in their season opener, defeated London rivals Tottenham 2-1 in Week 2 and they will be hoping to stay in touching distance of the early leaders with another win.
Elsewhere, leaders Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford in the last kick-off on Saturday, Manchester City are at Bournemouth in the opening game of Week 3 early Saturday morning, while Tottenham remain in their new home at Wembley Stadium to face Burnley.
