Free football tips: Man Utd’s Maguire to score against Leicester, Liverpool thrash Newcastle, and Nicolas Pepe to open Arsenal account.

THE Premier League is back - and it's already been an action-packed weekend.

Manchester United ground out three points to see off Leicester at Old Trafford, whilst table-toppers Liverpool stormed back from behind to beat Newcastle 3-1.

With Saturday's games now all underway, it's time to turn our attention to the big one on Sunday afternoon...

Watford vs Arsenal (Sunday, 4.30)

BEWARE the new manager bounce.

Watford stunned this week as they binned the popular Javi Gracia and 30 minutes later brought back Quique Sanchez Flores for a second crack at the Vicarage Road hot-seat.

He's got a baptism of fire to begin his second spell in charge, with the new-look Gunners making the short journey from North London.

Arsenal should have beaten Spurs in the derby a fortnight ago and played better at Anfield than the 3-1 scoreline suggests.

Unai Emery has been waiting for a chance to unleash his full Arsenal.

This is his chance - and we reckon Nicolas Pepe finally shows the Gunners faithful what they paid £72million for.

The French winger has shown flashes of brilliance so far in his brief time in an Arsenal shirt, just without the end-product.

And at a ground where they've won on six of their last seven visits, he can be the driving force behind a first Premier League win in three games.

Watford won't finish bottom of the table this season, which is where they sit going into this one.

Their squad is too finely tuned, too talented to do so. But it's very easy to get cast adrift in this division.

And with a trip to face Manchester City up next, they cannot afford to head to the North West next weekend with just two points from five games.

Both their home games this season have seen three goals or more - it's the sensible play on what is sure to be a charged afternoon at The Vic.

And if you do fancy the Hornets to pick up a first win of the season, Ladbrokes' 16/1 special on Pepe to score but Watford to win is a big, big price.

Watford vs Arsenal to feature over 2.5 goals: 8/13

Nicolas Pepe to open account for Gunners: 13/8

Pepe to score but Watford to win: 16/1
