The English Premier League continues with a full set of fixtures ahead of the first international break of the 2020/21 season.
Jose Mourinho takes his Tottenham team back to Old Trafford to take on his old club Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
Both clubs have had indifferent starts to the campaign, with United burgling a controversial win at Brighton last weekend, while Spurs were held to a maddening home draw by Newcastle.
Reigning champions Liverpool take their title defence to Aston Villa, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds rounding off the Sunday action against the Villans.
Chelsea kick off the weekend’s Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime as they face Crystal Palace in a London derby at Stamford Bridge.
Elsewhere in the capital, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are out to bounce back from their defeat to Liverpool when they play Sheffield United at the Emirates Stadium.
Manchester City also need to put a loss behind them when they hop across the Pennines to tackle Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday.
Saturday’s action also sees Everton put their perfect record to the test at home to impressive Brighton, while Newcastle welcome Burnley to St James’ Park for the late kick off.
Leicester top the early EPL table on goal difference and start the Sunday action in the early game when they host struggling West Ham at the King Power Stadium.
Across the Midlands, Wolves go up against Fulham at Molineux, with Southampton and West Brom going head-to-head at St Mary’s Stadium.
