Another week means another new era for Newcastle. This time it is the first game under caretaker manager Graeme Jones who will have at least two matches in charge, which might be longer than some future appointments. Jones takes his Newcastle players for a weekend away in Crystal Palace as he looks to give the club’s new owners a reason not to dismiss him immediately.
Burnley travel to Southampton in search of their first win of the season. The Clarets need to start stringing a few results together to give themselves hope of not getting relegated alongside Norwich and one other. Captain Ben Mee could return after recovering from Covid. His presence would be a big boost to a side built on their centre-back pairing as they are struggling to make much of an impact down the other end.
Leeds sit just above the relegation zone, much to Marcelo Bielsa’s chagrin. They host Wolves who are starting to find their feet under Bruno Lage, summed up by their comeback victory at Aston Villa last week. If coming back from 2-0 down to win in the final 10 minutes does not boost morale, nothing will.
Claudio Ranieri locks horns with Rafa Benitez in this weekend’s battle of former Chelsea managers. Everton are comfortable in eighth, while Watford arrive in 16th and requiring a more inspiring performance than in Ranieri’s first game in charge last weekend when they succumbed pitifully 5-0 to Liverpool at Vicarage Road.
