The Premier League will offer up its usual level of entertainment this weekend, with Sunday’s action particularly eye-catching.
Liverpool couldn’t get the better of Man United last Saturday, with the two rivals playing out a forgettable 0-0 draw at Anfield.
Elsewhere, Man City continued their stunning run of form with a 7-2 annihilation of Stoke, with Kevin De Bruyne producing a footballing masterclass.
There are 10 matches on the horizon this weekend—here’s the best of the upcoming action.
A genuine Super Sunday awaits
Top quality Super Sundays have been few and far between so far this season, but this weekend sees two matches that could be potential crackers.
The two sets of supporters are approaching meltdown, and defeat for either this weekend would see Koeman or Arsene Wenger feeling the heat even more.
Liverpool then take on Spurs in what should be an aesthetically-pleasing contest at Wembley.
The Reds are unbeaten against the north Londoners under Jurgen Klopp, but Sunday will arguably be the German’s biggest test yet.
This is Spurs’ best side of the Premier League era, and if Liverpool don’t defend resolutely and take their chances in attack, they will leave with nothing.
Three more points for Manchester rivals?
City look devastating at the moment, playing some of the best football in Europe, and it is hard to see anyone stopping them on current form.
Saturday’s visitors Burnley are unlikely to defend as poorly as Stoke did, but City’s attacking class should shine through against limited opposition.
United, meanwhile, head to Huddersfield off the back of a sleep-inducing performance at Anfield.
For all his faults, Jose Mourinho is a master as getting wins against the lesser sides, and the visitors are highly likely to cruise to victory at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Don’t expect the top of the table to look any different come Monday morning.
Former Liverpool managers go head to head
When it comes to Liverpool supporters and their feelings for Rafa Benitez and Roy Hodgson, things couldn’t be much different.
Benitez is still adored by many, having inspired the Reds to Champions League glory and built a great side during the mid-to-late 2000s, while Hodgson is widely seen as the worst manager in the club’s history.
On Saturday afternoon, their Newcastle and Crystal Palace sides meet at St James’ Park—a match which is tricky to predict.
Newcastle are ticking along nicely under Benitez, sitting pretty in ninth place, but they are now without a win in three league games.
Palace’s shock win against Chelsea last weekend could help turn their season around, but defeat against the Magpies would swiftly end the current optimism at Selhurst Park.
Let’s face it, we’re all rooting for Benitez to conquer Hodgson, aren’t we?
Can Watford stun out-of-form Chelsea?
Chelsea are such a strange club at times, with title wins often followed up with disappointing campaigns.
What we are currently witnessing is nowhere near the mess they were in under Jose Mourinho in 2015/16, but they are really struggling to get going.
The defeat to Palace was one that nobody saw coming, and unlike last season, they are picking up injuries to key players and it is impacting on them. Alvaro Morata and N’Golo Kante are enormous losses, in particular.
Marco Silva’s team will be buoyant after beating Arsenal, and their energy and slick passing will be a match for their opponents.
Failure to pick up three points for the Blues will really see questions being asked of Antonio Conte and his players.
