It has been far too long since the last English Premier League game, but all will be righted shortly and this weekend will bring more world-class action.
After last weekend's break for Round 3 of the FA Cup, the storylines that have been building all season will continue.
Arsenal will continue trying to crack the Top Four against Manchester City, who need points to keep Manchester United it its sights. League-leading United will host Liverpool in a showdown between the Premiership's two most storied clubs.
But there are other intriguing matchups across the country this weekend, and these stars will outshine the competition in the upcoming slate of fixtures.
