1. Can Chelsea FINALLY keep a clean sheet? plus injury crisis
You know you're in trouble when you can't keep a clean sheet against Grimsby. Frank Lampard's gung-ho style has been entertaining, but keeping out Brighton this weekend is a must. The visitors will be eyeing an upset, for sure.
2. Will Raheem Sterling be a victim of Manchester City's rotation again?
Guardiola left the star out last week, and saw them win 8-0. Sterling will be desperate to get back on the field, but will his manager want to change a winning formula against Everton? Fantasy Football players will hope so!
3. Will Norwich City weather their brutal injury crisis?
Considering the amount of injury problems (nine players currently out) facing the Canaries, their seasons start has been nothing short of extraordinary. They'll look to hobble their way to victory against a limp Crystal Palace.
4. Will Leicester City shake up the 'big six' this season?
Leicester have an opportunity to shatter the 'big six' this season, and capitalise on elite sides losing their footballing marbles. Rodger's boys are brimming with confidence, and can make a big statement by hammering Newcastle.
