The best players in the Premier League return to their clubs in matchday 13. Injuries are rampant, though, and that extends across the league. Many of those came during this most recent international break. For example, Erling Haaland missed Norway’s second Euro 2024 qualifier in November with a foot injury. Son Heung-min sustained a knock that could lead to more injury concerns at a weakened Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester United must deal with injuries to both Marcus Rashford and Andre Onana. Some of these injuries are worse than others, but the concerns are there.

Still, as the saying states, the show must go on. Each of those clubs has pivotal games this weekend. That starts on Saturday morning when Manchester City hosts Liverpool. Manchester City is back to a familiar spot at the top of the Premier League table. A wild 4-4 draw against Chelsea to round out action before the international break means City has a one-point lead over Liverpool in second. The top-of-the-table clash should be a dandy to get things started.

On Sunday, Tottenham looks to snap its two-game losing streak when it hosts Aston Villa. Villa is only one point behind Spurs in the Premier League table, as Ange Postecoglou’s side sank to fourth after leading the league. Villa presents a challenge, as Unai Emery’s side has the second most goals in league play this season.

Also, Manchester United returns to play against Everton. This is the Toffees’ first game since picking up a 10-point deduction from the Premier League for breaches of Financial Fair Play. Consequently, Everton is now in the relegation zone. The prospect of the drop is now more real than ever.
