The Premier League continues this weekend with the two Manchester sides in need of a victory after less than impressive recent displays.
On the other hand, North London neighbours Arsenal and Tottenham go into the weekend fresh off the back of excellent results in Europe this week and will be looking to build on their impressive league form.
Manchester City v Everton (Saturday)
Manchester City suffered their second straight defeat on Wednesday night as they were dismantled 3-1 by Champions League holders Bayern Munich.
The defeat piled on the misery at Eastlands following last weekend’s 3-2 defeat at Aston Villa which saw Manuel Pellegrini’s side slump to seventh in the table.
More mistakes from Joe Hart in midweek continues to raise questions over the England international’s selection and could be replaced by Costel Pantilimon who would win his Premier League debut.
David Silva could feature for the first time in the league since August after recovering from an ankle injury and Stevan Jovetic is also fit to play.
Everton will pose a tough test for City, with the Toffees holding the final remaining unbeaten record in the Premier League. They beat Newcastle 3-2 in an exciting game on Monday night with Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku a key man scoring twice for Everton.
Gareth Barry will not feature as he is on loan from Manchester City, and Roberto Martinez will also be without Steven Pienaar whilst Darron Gibson and Kevin Mirallas are both doubts.
Manchester City are favourites going into the game, with Bet Victor offering odds of 7/10 but with generous odds of 9/2 being offered by a number of outlets, including Stan James, there is a lot of value on placing money on an Everton win.
The game is live on BT Sport from 12:45pm on Saturday.
Sunderland v Manchester United (Saturday)
The teatime game on Saturday sees rock-bottom Sunderland take on Manchester United, with manager David Moyes coming under fire recently after a less than impressive start to the season.
United have not won any of their last three games, with Premier league defeats to Manchester city and West Brom before a 1-1 draw at Shaktar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday.
They have a few injury concerns ahead of the game, with Rio Ferdinand and Tom Cleverly remaining doubts.
Sunderland are still to register a win in the Premier League this season, with last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool being their third in a row.
The game is live on Sky Sports 1 from 5:30pm.
West Brom v Arsenal (Sunday)
West Brom go into this game unbeaten in three and come fresh off the back of last weekend’s 2-1 win over Manchester United but face an extremely tough task in beating Arsenal, who have won 11 out of 11.
And their task could be made even harder with the news that strikers Victor Anichebe, Nicolas Anelka and Shane Long could all miss out, meaning Saido Berahino could make his first league start.
Arsenal recorded an excellent 2-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday and will be hoping to build their lead at the top of the tree with a win.
They are without Bacary Sagna who has been ruled out for three weeks after picking a hamstring injury in the Napoli game. Carl Jenkinson is expected to be his replacement.
The game is live on Sky Sports 1 from 4pm on Sunday.
