English Premier League fixtures Matchday 5
With the international break all wrapped up, that means it's time for the English Premier League to return to action. And this weekend, there's a loaded set of games on the English Premier League schedule for fans to enjoy.
The action is of course headlined by the Merseyside Derby, with Liverpool and Everton getting ready to clash on Saturday. Which team will come out on top?
Liverpool vs. Everton in the Merseyside derby will be a must-watch clash
On Saturday, Everton will host Liverpool in a HUGE clash in the first Merseyside Derby of the season. Goodison Park will be ready to provide us with plenty of drama, as the two teams will be as hungry as ever to get a win.
Entering Saturday's tilt, Everton is actually first in the English Premier League table with its 12 points. They're the only team in the league to get off to a perfect start, winning their first four matches.
Manchester City vs. Arsenal is another monster showdown
In addition to the Merseyside Derby, we've also got an incredible showdown on the schedule in Manchester City vs. Arsenal on Saturday. Pep Guardiola will once again take on his protege Mikel Arteta.
Unfortunately for Man City, they'll be without star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne for the clash, as he was ruled out with an injury on Friday. While that's a bummer for City, they won't let that stop them from trying to take down the Gunners at the Etihad Stadium.
Tottenham and West Ham to meet on Sunday
Tottenham has all the confidence in the world right now, as the last time they took the pitch, they traveled to Old Trafford and handed Manchester United a stunning 6-1 defeat. It was some sweet, sweet revenge for manager Jose Mourinho against his old club.
Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son have been sensational for Spurs. Fans are also patiently awaiting the debut (for the second time) of standout Gareth Bale. Once he's able to hit the pitch, even more magic will be on the way for Tottenham.
Chelsea ready to host Southampton at Stamford Bridge
Speaking of teams playing with confidence, Chelsea will take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge after they absolutely demolished Crystal Palace on Oct. 13. In that game, the Blues went on to take down Palace 4-0.
Ben Chilwell and Kurt Zouma opened the scoring, while a pair of penalty kicks from Jorginho closed things at 4-0 for Chelsea. Fans are waiting for Christian Pulisic to return to full health. Once he is able to get back on the pitch, the rest of the EPL better watch out.
Here's the list of the other fixtures set to be played this weekend:
Newcastle vs. Manchester United
Sheffield United vs. Fulham
Crystal Palace vs. Brighton
Leicester City vs. Aston Villa
West Brom vs. Burnley
Leeds United vs. Wolves
