A Merseyside derby carries enough spice as it is but with both Liverpool and Everton still having plenty to play for this season the early kick off on Saturday could hold extra importance – the Reds would be very well placed for the Champions League with a win but a Toffees victory at Anfield and they move to within three points of the team in fourth.

Burnley going into the game at Turf Moor – where they have an impressive record this season – having failed to win in the last five so the Clarets would be keen to put a dent in Tottenham Champions League bid to maintain and healthy gap on the bottom three, Spurs on the other hand aim to close the 10 points gap on leaders Chelsea.

Champions elect Chelsea will return from the international break looking for a fourth straight win to maintain the 10 point lead they hold over Tottenham, at least. However, Crystal Palace head to Selhurst Park on a three game winning run that’s taken them four points clear of danger.

Hull’s goal difference probably means they’ll remain in the bottom three even if they can beat West Ham – who have lost their last three and failed to win in five – at the KCOM Stadium. Marco Silva’s side will merely take a much needed win at this stage.

Three successive wins and Champions League progression had seen Leicester turn things around prior to the break. Stoke – looking for a first win in three – will look to end the Foxes run at the King Power Stadium to remain on track for a ninth place finish.

If Manchester United are to maintain a Champions League push the Red Devils need to beat West Brom to keep the pressure on the top four. Albion visit Old Trafford free from pressure and well placed to finish the season in eighth.

Should Watford slip to a third successive defeat – a fourth in a five game winless run – the Hornets’ relegation fears could start to grow. Sunderland simply have to win at Vicarage Road with the gap to safety at seven points heading into this game.

The late kick off will see south coast rivals Southampton and Bournemouth meet at St Mary’s. Both are clear of relegation danger with the 10th place Saints ahead of the Cherries – who have won their last two – on goal difference alone.

Sunday’s opening game, with both potentially having a huge impact at opposite ends of the table, will see Swansea play host to Middlesbrough. The Swans are a place and three points above the bottom three whereas second bottom Boro – who haven’t won in their last 10 – five points behind their Liberty Stadium hosts.

Four defeats in five Premier League games means Arsenal are now outsiders for a Champions League finish. If they can’t beat Manchester City – unbeaten in seven and aiming to potentially move as high as second – the Gunners are almost certain to miss the top four for the first time ever under Arsene Wenger.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.
