Last week's Manchester derby fully lived up to expectations, but there are not matchups set for this weekend with similarly exciting storylines. It will be up to the individual players to keep English Premier League fans entertained, and several stars will be up to the task.

The rest of the Premiership is playing catch-up, and the battles for points this weekend will be fierce.
Here are the players who will shine brightest.
