Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will go head-to-head with Thomas Tuchel for the third time this season when Manchester United visit Chelsea on Sunday.

Tuchel was in the dugout for Paris Saint-Germain when the Ligue 1 champions shared a win apiece against the Red Devils in Champions League Group H this season.

Away from Stamford Bridge, Liverpool are aiming to end a poor run of four straight Premier League defeats against rock-bottom Sheffield United, while high-flying Manchester City host in-form West Ham.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is out to extend a fine personal record against Arsenal, while Tottenham and Everton host Burnley and Southampton respectively.

But ahead of settling down for all the action, why not give your minds a good workout by having a go at our Opta-powered Friday quiz?
