Five of the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ are in action on Sunday on what promises to be an action-packed day of top class football.

The undoubted highlight of the four games is the clash between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

United head into the game nine points behind City and anything less than a victory would put a big dent in their hopes of mounting a serious title challenge.

However, having won 2-1 at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday, United fans watching the game via live streaming at will be confident that their team can pick up three points.

Goals by Paul Pogba (2) and Chris Smalling completed a stunning turnaround in last season’s corresponding fixture, securing a 3-2 success for the visiting side.

United have won four and drawn two of their last eight meetings with City in all competitions and they are fancied to pick up at least a point this weekend.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Chelsea host Everton aiming to keep up the pressure on their title rivals. The Blues are currently second in the table, level on points with Liverpool and just two behind City.

They have won three and drawn one of their last four Premier League meetings with Everton and they look banker material to record another victory at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool should also collect three points when they face lowly Fulham at Anfield, while Arsenal can continue their good form by beating Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates Stadium.

The standout game on Saturday is the all-London clash at Selhurst Park between Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur. 

Spurs have won six of their seven Premier League away matches this season and they face a Palace side that have failed to win any of their five fixtures on home soil.

However, a battling 2-2 draw against Arsenal in their most recent home game will offer encouragement to the Eagles.

Five of Spurs’ last six wins against Palace have been by a 1-0 scoreline and another close match could be on the cards in this one.

Leicester will play their first home game since Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s death with their former owner’s name embroidered on their shirts.

A special video will be played before their game against Burnley, while fans have also planned a tribute march to the ground. The home team will be eager to mark the occasion with a victory on what is certain to be an emotional afternoon.

Brighton & Hove Albion and Watford are fancied to win at Cardiff City and Southampton respectively, while the Huddersfield Town versus West Ham United and Newcastle United versus Bournemouth matches look good bets to finish as draws.
