Shambolic Manchester United come up against another side who inflicted a thrashing on them last season as they attempt to respond from a Liverpool mauling this weekend.

United were thumped 5-0 by their fierce rivals at Old Trafford on Sunday and travel to Tottenham six days later with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under massive pressure.

Premier League leaders Chelsea travel to struggling Newcastle United, while Liverpool take on Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield and Arsenal are on the road at Leicester City.
