The battle for second place in the Premier League standings is cranked up a notch as Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Old Trafford in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Level on 20 points, the two early pacesetters trail leaders Manchester City by five points after 11 fixtures and a three-point haul will undoubtedly be top of the agenda.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs outfit come into the contest off the back of a disappointing 3-2 defeat at the hands of London rivals West Ham in the Carbao Cup in midweek, and they will be keen to replicate the performance which earned a convincing 4-1 victory over Liverpool last Sunday.
United, meanwhile, will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Swansea in the midweek cup action, especially after a fruitless trip to Huddersfield Town last weekend.
Later in the day, table-topping Manchester City travel to a struggling West Brom as they target an eighth consecutive win, while fifth-placed Arsenal play host to an out-of form Swansea City.
And, in the final match of the day, Chelsea travel to the Vitality Stadium looking to continue a recent upturn in form against a Bournemouth outfit sitting just four points clear of bottom-of-the-table Crystal Palace.
