The action got underway on Friday evening, with Southampton and Leicester City fighting out a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s.
James Ward-Prowse put the home side in front from the penalty spot, but Jonny Evans bagged an equaliser for the Foxes.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola made eight changes to his starting XI for the visit to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
However, his tinkering didn’t impact the outcome as City eased to a comfortable 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park – Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres got the goals.
There are three more games on Saturday, with the evening clash between Everton and Aston Villa the pick of the bunch.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is unlikely to start for Arsenal at Newcastle United on Sunday.
The striker is still not up-to-speed after a bout of malaria but could be fit enough for a place on the bench.
Manchester United vs Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur vs Sheffield United completes the Sunday line-up.
Robert Snodgrass may return to West Bromwich Albion’s squad for their home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.
The winger has had an epidural to solve some long-standing niggles and may be amongst the substitutes at The Hawthorns.
