Before the Premier League pauses for the penultimate international break of the year, there is another packed weekend of action to look forward to – not least the showdown between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield.
City inflicted a first defeat of the season on Chelsea last Saturday, the reigning champions moving to within a point of top spot following Liverpool’s thrilling draw with Brentford.
With those two heavyweights exchanging blows on Merseyside, third-placed Chelsea will be looking to take advantage when they host Southampton, though the Blues are winless in their last three in this fixture.
Two other sides on 13 points after six matches meet at Old Trafford on Saturday as Manchester United host Everton, while Arsenal travel to high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion and out-of-form Tottenham host Aston Villa.
