The pick of the Premier League fixtures falls on Sunday this week, with the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton, and Chelsea versus Manchester United

However, the biggest Premier League stories of Week 9 are all Saturday based.

The early kickoff saw the action started at Villa Park, where Aston Villa welcomed Norwich City in Paul Lambert's first game against his old club since their acrimonious parting in the summer.

From there, it was on to the four 3 p.m. (GMT) kickoffs, which saw struggling Arsenal—with Jack Wilshere returning to the side for the first time in almost 18 months—take on relegation-bound Queens Park Rangers.

Reading, in search of their first home win of the season, took on Fulham, who usually struggle on the road. Wigan faced West Ham, and the least appetising game of the weekend saw Sunderland face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.

While the late kickoff saw Roberto Mancini's Manchester City side—fresh from another Champions League defeat—welcome Swansea City.
