Chelsea and Manchester City will clash in perhaps the biggest match of the Premier League season so far this weekend.
Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking to keep their unbeaten record intact at Stamford Bridge, while the Blues can draw level with their title rivals with a victory.
In the meantime, Manchester United will hope to take advantage of either side – or both – dropping points when they host Crystal Palace.

Tottenham are once again involved in the first game of the weekend, this time visiting Huddersfield Town at lunchtime on Saturday.
Five 15:00 fixtures then follow – the highlight of which is another difficult away trip for Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace, who remain without a point through six games.
High-flying Watford are at West Brom and both Bournemouth and Leicester City will be looking to kick-start their season when they meet on the south coast.
West Ham could do with a win at home to Swansea City, as could Stoke City when they welcome Southampton.
The evening kick-off is the biggest game of the weekend as Chelsea host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge. Pep Guardiola’s men can go six points clear of the Blues with a victory.
On Sunday, Arsenal are at home against Brighton to get things started.
Everton then take on Burnley in a north-west match-up before the action closes with a classic Premier League fixture: Newcastle United against Liverpool.

The early kick-off last weekend was at the London Stadium, where Tottenham raced into a 3-0 lead in the second half.
West Ham pulled one back before Serge Aurier was sent off, though, and Cheikhou Kouyate’s second made it a very nervy finish for Spurs, who just about held out for three points.
Later on, Manchester United earned a 1-0 victory at Southampton despite withstanding late pressure thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s sixth league goal of the season.
Defending champions Chelsea were more convincing winners, with Alvaro Morata’s hat-trick driving them to a 4-0 victory at Stoke City – as were Manchester City, who won 5-0 on the back of four second-half goals against Crystal Palace.
Surprise packages Burnley and Huddersfield Town played out a 0-0 draw at Turf Moor but there was more drama at Swansea City and Everton.
Watford emerged 2-1 winners in Wales thanks to Richarlison’s late winner, while the Toffees earned three points by the same scoreline over Bournemouth after a two-goal second-half cameo from Oumar Niasse.
In the evening fixture, Liverpool’s defence was imperfect once again but goals from Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson earned the Reds a 3-2 win over Leicester City.
The busy Saturday schedule is a consequence of five clubs playing Champions League matches on Tuesday and Wednesday the following week.
The sole Sunday fixture was between newly promoted Brighton and Newcastle United, with Chris Hughton’s Seagulls triumphing 1-0 thanks to a Tomer Hemed strike. That result sees them move ahead of Everton into 13th.
On Monday night, Arsenal moved themselves into the top half of the table with a 2-0 win over West Brom courtesy of a pair of Alexandre Lacazette goals.
