The English Premier League is back with a short turnaround this week—meaning that we can quickly get back into the great slate of matches for this weekend!

As the title race heats up between Manchester United and Manchester City, so too does our race for the coveted prize in our Premier League tipping competition.

And whilst we might not have the top-four race or the relegation dilemmas throughout our league like the top flight does (though that could be a great idea!), our writers have combed over their selections and prepared well for the big week ahead.

Who said this couldn't be serious?

Read on to see an abridged version of how our current leaderboard looks as well as each writer's expert predictions for the respective matches this weekend.
