  • Premier League Week 4 is highlighted by Manchester City-Newcastle on Saturday (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC) and Watford-Tottenham on Sunday (11 a.m. ET, NBC Sports).
  • Public bettors are heavy on three road favorites this weekend: Arsenal (-178), Tottenham (-155) and Manchester United (-151).

Week 4 of the Premier League season is highlighted by Watford hosting Tottenham on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET.

The clubs enter the match tied atop the league table with flawless 3-0-0 records and nine points apiece.

Draws made a slight comeback in Week 3, but are still in the red overall. Here’s a look at how the season results have shaped up so far.
