The English Premier League continues this weekend, with all eyes on Old Trafford for Saturday evening’s clash between Manchester United and Chelsea.
It’s been a difficult start to the EPL campaign for both clubs, who are scrambling for points to push them up the early table.
Reigning champions Liverpool are in action straight after, rounding off the Saturday action with a game at Anfield against Sheffield United, who appear to have come down with a bout of second-season syndrome.
Arsenal must wait until Sunday night for their Emirates Stadium fixture with 2016 champions Leicester, with both clubs starting the weekend in the top six despite defeats last time out.
Early hotshots Everton go to Southampton earlier in the day, before a clash between Wolves and Newcastle at Molineux.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Manchester City head down to the London Stadium for a game against West Ham, who are three games unbeaten and fresh from pulling off an inspired comeback in their derby with Tottenham last weekend.
At the other end of the London Underground’s District Line, there’s a rival tussle between Fulham and Crystal Palace at Craven Cottage.
Aston Villa and Leeds, meanwhile, kick off the weekend’s action on Friday night at Villa Park.
There are two fixtures on Monday, with Tottenham making the trek up to Turf Moor to tackle inhospitable hosts Burnley. That’s after Brighton play West Brom at the Amex Stadium.
