Premier league returns following break

Following England's glorious night on Wednesday, it's back to Premier League matters, and a cracking line up of games this weekend as the top 6 meet each other, and includes the battle at the top where Tottenham play Man Utd in the evening game at White Hart Lane.

United will be keen to step up their title defence, whilst Spurs will be aiming to stay on the top of the table. Rio Ferdinand come make his return to the United side, but could be without Jonny Evans and John O'Shea following injuries.

They do share that position with Chelsea of course, and they have what could prove to be an awkward game at Stoke tomorrow afternoon, with the Potters sitting in 5th place in the table. Former Chester defender Danny Collins could make his debut for Stoke following his move from Sunderland in the Transfer Window.

Another big game is at Eastlands, where Man City take on Arsenal, both sides have done well so far this season, but the Gunners will be hoping to improve on their last result in Manchester, where they lost to United at Old Trafford. Emmanuel Adebayor is in for an interesting afternoon as he comes up against his former employees.

Elsewhere, Liverpool will be hopping they can bag a win at home to Burnley, whilst the bottom two face off at Fratton Park, as Portsmouth play Bolton. Striker Danny Webber could make his debut following his move from Sheffield United, whilst Bolton could hand a debut to Croatian striker Ivan Klasnic.

In the North East, Sunderland play host to Hull, where Michael Turner could be in line to make his debut as he lines up against the side he left for the Black Cats, whilst Paul McShane could do the same for Hull following his recent transfer from Sunderland.

West Ham make the trip to Wigan hoping to break in to the top ten, but Roberto Martinez will be desperate for a win as they sit just one place above the bottom three.

Blackburn take on Wolves at Ewood Park looking for their first win, and Pascal Chimbonda could make his debut for Rovers in this one following his move from Tottenham.

On Sunday, it's the Brummie Battle as Aston Villa make the short trip over to Birmingham, with City likely to hand a debut to Finnish midfielder Teemu Tainio, whilst Everton travel to Fulham on Sunday evening, where The Cottagers could see Swedish striker David Elm could feature, and Johnny Heitinga could make his bow for the Toffees following the Dutch defenders move from Athletico Madrid.
