The weekend’s saints and sinners have little time to reflect upon an eventful round of fixtures as they head into a full Premier League programme on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at some of the issues which could prove central.

Stay calm, Jurgen

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp simply could not contain himself after substitute Divock Origi headed his side to a stoppage-time derby victory over Everton on Sunday, racing on to the pitch to embrace keeper Alisson Becker. The German later apologised for his actions, but that did not spare him a Football Association charge and all eyes will be on the visitors’ dug-out at Burnley on Wednesday evening.

Forgotten Howe to win?

However, he will send them into battle with Huddersfield on Tuesday night on the back of a four-game losing run which has taken the gloss off their impressive start to the campaign.

Having won the Sky Bet Championship at a canter, Wolves took to life in the top flight like ducks to water, winning four and losing only one of their first eight fixtures. However, things have become significantly more taxing since with Wanderers having managed just a single point from a possible 18 they have contested, hardly the form they would have chosen as they prepare to host Chelsea.
