The Premier League returns after the international break next weekend with a full schedule of fixtures and five live televised games for supporters to enjoy.

Among the offerings will be top-of-the-table clashes—including the Merseyside derby and Tottenham's trip to Manchester City, Manchester United's first Premier League visit to Cardiff and two further derby encounters from London and the Midlands.

With the table bunched together more than in previous campaigns, every point at both ends of the table is more valuable than ever at this early stage of the season.

Game of the Week

Everton vs. Liverpool

Roberto Martinez gets his first crack at Liverpool as Everton manager, and as leader of one of only two sides beaten just once this season, he comes into the tie in a confident mood.

However, with the exception of their defeat to Arsenal just a fortnight ago, Liverpool are also in terrific form and have scored goals for fun since the return from suspension of striker Luis Suarez. The Reds have netted eight in their past two home league outings.

Against Everton, they will not find goals easy to come by, with the Toffees having only conceded once in their past four Premier League fixtures. The hope for Martinez will be that striker Romelu Lukaku is back to his best after a recent knee injury.

Both teams have tended to control possession this season, per WhoScored.com, which will lead to an interesting midfield battle, while both have also experimented with multiple formations.

The game will be a battle of two of the league's most modern managers who share a common bond in their successes at Swansea. Now, though, they are rivals on either side of the Liverpool divide.

Liverpool have the greater fire power, but Everton have the backing of home support and are a powerful unit. The contest should be fascinating.
