Liverpool were in ominous form against West Ham although Palace were in good form themselves in beating Fulham. Hodgson will have them well drilled and could pose Klopp's men a threat on the counter too so expect both teams to score in what should be a fascinating game.
After a 3-0 loss at home on the opening day of the season, a trip to the Etihad is the last fixture David Wagner would want for his team. City are formidable at home and are wounded by the injury to De Bruyne, and they will look to wrap this win up early and expect them to rack up the goals.
Burnley have started the season in typical fashion as they have been grinding results out and are content to pick up draws and points without taking too many risks. Watford showed good quality last week but will find it difficult on this trip up North so expect another low scoring affair here.
There is no doubt as to how Brighton will approach this game as they will look to soak up pressure and counter United even at home. Mourinho's men showed real desire last week against Leicester but were still not playing flowing football, and goals may well be scarce in this one.
Similar to Fulham and all the new players they have signed, it is clear that it will take time for West Ham to bed all their new faces in especially with a new manager also. Bournemouth are well drilled and looked good last week so this could lead to being quite an open and attracive match.
Tottenham made a fast start last week which was key as they notably tired as the match went on and that will likely be their tactic to kill the game off early here too. Fulham may take some time to adjust to life in the Premier League with so many new players and Spurs should take advantage of that.
Leicester did not end last season well and the defeat to Man Utd last week has put pressure on Puel according to some reports. They did however play reasonably well in that match and may be underestimated here so look for value in them picking up their first win of the season.
Both of these teams drew last week but Everton were largely happy given they were away and with ten men for more than a half, while Saints did not inspire at home to Burnley. Everton will be fired up at home and should have too much creativity for this relatively average Southampton team.
Unai Emery has not been helped by the fixture list to start his career as Arsenal manager, but it is clear from the opening match that it will take time to implement his ideas. Chelsea on the other hand look to be adapting quicker to Sarri's more attacking style, and they have to be favoured.
Cardiff's loss at Bournemouth on the opening day backed up pre-season thoughts that this will be a difficult season for them. The same could be said for Newcastle however, and this could be a match in which both teams do not take too many risks and deem a point as a satisfactory outcome.
Life after Cristiano Ronaldo kicks in here for Real Madrid and it will be fascinating to see how they fare over the coming season. Atletico have made some key changes themselves and Real will fancy their chances of adding another trophy to their ever-increasing cabinet.
Barcelona have a dominant recent record against Sevilla and that will likely continue here in this one-off Super Cup in Morocco. They are likely to field a stronger team than Sevilla who have gone through some change, and expect goals in this one too - reminiscent of the 2015 UEFA Super Cup.
Southampton have not been convincing in pre-season and all the signs are that Mark Hughes still does not know his best team or formation. Burnley have to contend with their Europa League commitments which may hamper them and this may be an unusually open game for the two teams.
West Ham have enjoyed one of the better transfer windows in their recent history and look to have much more quality in their squad now. That said, it will take time to bed the players in and Liverpool will look to make a fast start and should rack up three points from this opener at Anfield.
