The Manchester Derby highlights another set of ten games in the Premier League this upcoming weekend. Sure, it is not a top-of-the-table clash, but that shows how important the game is for both teams.
However, coverage starts before that 8:30 a.m. kickoff on Saturday. In fact, we have another Friday game ahead of us. Aston Villa travels to the south coast to play Southampton at 4 p.m. ET. Aston Villa, which entered the season as dark horse top-seven candidate, currently sits three points outside the relegation zone. Southampton is just one point ahead of Villa.
Then, Saturday’s coverage kicks off with Premier League Mornings before the Manchester Derby. This is the eighth time since 2013/14 that the two sides enter the fixture both in the top-five in the EPL table. Pep Guardiola’s squad suffered a shock defeat last time out against Crystal Palace. The Citizens are five points behind league-leaders Chelsea.
Similarly, Manchester United enters the game on a mixed run of form. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s squad ended their EPL skid last weekend with a 3-0 win over Tottenham. The Red Devils are in fifth, three points behind City and West Ham.
Taking it back to Tottenham, Antonio Conte makes his return to management in Premier League action on Sunday as Tottenham takes on Everton. Conte last managed Inter Milan to a Scudetto. Now, he picks up the pieces in North London with Tottenham losing three of their last five in league play.
Also on Sunday, West Ham hosts Liverpool in a matchup between the fourth- and second-placed teams in the table, respectively. David Moyes is on a hot streak with three-consecutive wins in the Premier League.
Arsenal, who now sits at sixth in the Premier League, looks to make it eight unbeaten in the league when they host Watford.
