We don't think AVB will be opening his mouth even if Arsenal lose at City but there will be plenty asking questions. It's also a big weekend for a Spurs side yet to claim a scalp...
You might have heard, but Davey Moyes could rather do with a no-nonsense home win. It's also a Big Weekend for Southampton, Benteke, Norwich and the Berb...
Losing to Liverpool might not be a huge deal for David Moyes. Ferguson lost to Liverpool loads of times and he did okay. Losing to Liverpool so early in his tenure might be more serious. Losing to Liverpool when he's trying to assert himself, to prove he's worthy of this enormous task...that might be more serious again.
A recovery win over Crystal Palace at the weekend will help things a little, but other things are pressing and causing concern among United fans. The Shinji Kagawa issue, specifically why the Japanese playmaker is not in his first team, might be a little overplayed, as Andi Thomas wrote here, but possibly more pertinent is why Wilfried Zaha appears not to be in favour.
Sure, there are only so many players a manager can have on the bench, and Nani can be a decent option when he feels like it, but Zaha provides a direct threat that few other players in the United squad can offer, so one would think Moyes needs to find some space for the youngster.
And let's not get started on Ryan Giggs...
Or perhaps more accurately this should be 'Arsenal fans who might come over all unnecessary when they finally see Ozil wearing an Arsenal shirt'. Come on, ladies and gents - you're grown-ups, most of you. Have some dignity. And take that Ö off your Twitter profile. It's embarrassing.
At some point the perfectly understandable warm fuzzy glow that's currently surrounding most Gooners like they're the kid from the Ready Brek advert might fade, and they'll remember that even with Ozil, their squad is still pretty thin. Many will already have reached that realisation.
And for those that haven't, the injuries of varying severity that befell Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Tomas Rosicky, plus Yaya Sanogo, might bring them back into the room.
Ozil is essentially a spiritual sticking plaster, one that undoubtedly improves Arsenal and few would suggest that they should not have signed him, but one that does not - or at least should not - disguise the deficiencies elsewhere in their squad. They're still a little light in central defence, they could probably have done with another tough midfielder to go with Mathieu Flamini, and the injury to Lukas Podolski even leaves them looking a little iffy on the flanks.
So enjoy Mesut, Gooners. Just don't be surprised when he doesn't fix everything.
The injured England players
Imagine the clacks of irritation from Roy Hodgson's tongue when all the players who missed England's games with injury play this weekend. Imagine how hard he's going to rub his face. Imagine how nice and avuncular he's going to be about the whole thing.
Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen
Three games in is not the time to panic or draw hasty conclusions. That's usually a sentence you'll read just before someone panics or makes a hasty conclusion. So apologies in advance, Spurs fans.
Spurs have played three games, won two and lost one - the one being probably their toughest game of the season, at Arsenal. And yet in those three games, they have yet to score a goal from open play, and there have been concerns about where their creativity is going to come from.
The obvious answer to that is from their two new signings, two of the brightest creative young talents in Europe, but that's a fair amount of pressure to place on a couple of 21-year-olds yet to play in the Premier League. There's also the small matter of who they are replacing - it is of course too simplistic and downright wrong to call last season's Spurs a one-man team, but they need to find the 26 goals and assorted other influences Gareth Bale provided from somewhere.
"What we did in the transfer market is in the expectancy of these players becoming world stars," said Andre Villas-Boas on Thursday. No pressure.
Before the derby, Arsene Wenger commented that Spurs were taking a risk by signing so many new players because of the problems knitting those players together. This problem is arguably exacerbated by the pressure that Villas-Boas is under because of the talent recruited this summer - the top four is a minimum requirement, so all the parts have to fit together bloody quickly.
Lamela and Eriksen are two of the biggest parts in Villas-Boas's machine, so he had better hope they perform rather quickly - starting at White Hart Lane against Norwich on Saturday.
Three games, no wins, one point. It's...well it's not the ideal start to Paolo Di Canio's rip it up, throw it in the bin, set fire to it then start again strategy at Sunderland.
And it's not as if Sunderland have faced the most arduous tasks thus far either. Fulham at home, Southampton then Crystal Palace away. One point.
Maybe it's because his players are knackered. Di Canio said this week: "The majority of the squad had just one day off training all summer but I think this is a good thing because in my view if you train hard, you have less, not more chance of injury.
"If you train intensively, your body is able to do more and my belief is that more players pick up injuries because they are not 100 per cent fit than get injuries trying to get 100 per cent fit.
"The simple fact is that if you train hard, you can press hard and run for the full 90 minutes."
So maybe the squad will reach peak fitness and the summer's work will pay off later in the season when everyone else is flagging. The problem for Di Canio is that if he keeps losing games to average opposition, he might not be around to see the benefit.
Still, Arsenal this weekend. All the best, Paolo.
Top of the league, three wins from three, all 1-0 victories, no goals conceded, and all without their best player.
Brendan Rodgers will quite justifiably be rather pleased with how the season has started for Liverpool, but how long will it last? The good news for them is that they have the squad depth to string it out for a little while at least, particularly in defence where they now have five centre-backs that Rodgers presumably won't be concerned about starting in any game. Also, the addition of Victor Moses was shrewd, allowing Philippe Coutinho to spend more time infield and presumably influence the game more.
Three wins is good. Four wins might make people think Liverpool can really do something serious this season.
For all the positive noises after some decent performances and what turned out to be a very good transfer window, Everton are one of three teams not to have won a game this season.
At home to Chelsea would be a pretty decent place to start.
Florian Marange is not happy. And understandably so. For those who haven't been keeping abreast of this one, the French defender was signed in the summer by Holloway, but was then promptly left out of their 25-man squad, meaning he, erm, can't play in the Premier League.
"I'm disgusted," Marange told L'Equipe. "If I had known this rule, I would have a clause in my contract. But my advisor did not tell me and now I am told that it is almost my fault.
"We lost [at Bristol City] but I was not at fault for the two goals. I have only had seven or eight training sessions. How can you judge a player after 10 days?"
"No one intended for it to happen that way," chairman Steve Parish told The Evening Standard this week. "We are trying to sort it out as best we can.
"We will resolve it. We are mindful of where we've not covered ourselves in glory and other people just maybe need to be mindful of where they've not covered themselves in glory. If everyone is sensible, we'll reach a good conclusion, I'm sure."
Quite what that conclusion is we're not sure, but it does paint an image of a manager who, quite frankly, isn't entirely clear what he's doing. At the very least it suggests a manager with a very muddled plan. To sign a player with no intention of playing him is at best a dicey way to treat a person, at worst a manager who shambles through life signing any mediocre forward that enters his peripheral vision without really bothering with the rest of the side. This, one might say, is how much Holloway cares about signing defenders - even when he does, he forgets they're there.
Of course, if Palace somehow beat Manchester United this weekend, nobody will care...
Not just looking for their first win, but looking for their first goal.
A home game against Cardiff, a fellow newly-promoted. These are the games Hull really do need to win if they are to survive.
Stoke are starting to play 'football'. Sort of. But these things take time. These things are ingrained in a club, and it's hard to get them out.
So, when a team like Manchester City visit, having recently shown that they are potentially vulnerable to an aerial threat, can he resist the temptation to go back to, you know, 'Stoke'?
