The highlight of this weekend’s Premier League games is Manchester City hosting arch-rivals Manchester United in the early kick-off on Sunday.
United are currently three points above the champions and their bitter-rivals.
City are unbeaten in 15 games this season and emerged winners from both of last season’s games, but it’s Sir Alex Ferguson’s men that hold the early advantage in what has become a two-horse title race in the Premier League.
City head into this vital clash with a doubt over the fitness of midfield playmaker David Silva. The Spaniard will have a late fitness test ahead of the big game. Alexander Kolarov and Micah Richards are both missing for the Citizens.
Tom Cleverley is a doubt for the visitors, after picking up a knock in the midweek Champions League game against Romanian champions Cluj. Centre-back Nemanja Vidic and Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa are also doubts for the clash.
Also on Sunday in-form Tottenham face a difficult trip to Everton’s Goodison Park. Andre Villas-Boas’ side have collected maximum points from their last three matches, but could face a tough challenge getting a victory on Merseyside.
Everton have not lost at Goodison in 15 games and their last home defeat came in March. However, the Toffee’s early season form has dipped slightly and David Moyes’ side have drawn the last three games on the trot.
A victory could take Everton above Tottenham into the top four, while a Spurs victory could take the men from North London up into 3rd place in the Premier League.
