Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

If there's a can't-miss match in Week 16 it's Manchester City vs. Arsenal. Manuel Pellegrini's Citizens have been remarkable at home this seasonoutscoring their opponents by a combined mark of 29-2while Arsene Wenger's Gunners have played well just about everywhere.

With Arsenal leading the table by five points and City looking to move up, the stakes will be sky-high when these two clubs square off on Saturday afternoon at the Etihad.

There will also be tremendous individual talent on display. City striker Sergio Aguero has scored a dozen goals this season and trails only Liverpool's Luis Suarez in the race for the Premier League scoring title.

The 25-year-old Argentine has scored in each of City's past two league matches and has netted four goals over the past four league games.

On the other side, Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud will be worth following. The two Gunners stars have combined for 15 goals in league play this season and have been creating opportunities for others as well, combining for nine assists thus far.

Expect all three of the aforementioned stars to leave their mark on Saturday's showdown in one way or another. 


Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool

Where: White Hart Lane, London

Watch: NBC Sports Network

In another top-tier matchup between two Premier League contenders, Liverpool will travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday to take on Spurs for the first time this season.

Andre Villas-Boas' squad only trail the Reds by three points in the league table and can draw even with them with a victory and three points. On the other hand, Liverpool can distance themselves from Spurs and keep the pressure on Arsenal with a third away win.

If that doesn't interest you, Luis Suarez certainly will. The league's leading goalscorer has been on fire of late, scoring six goals in the Reds' past two victories over Norwich City and West Ham United. The Uruguayan superstar now has 15 goals and two assists in 10 Premier League appearances overall. 

If nothing else, you'll want to watch to see if Suarez can turn in another jaw-dropping performance.

Meanwhile, Spurs have been scoring by committee, with three different players having netted a goal in their back-to-back 2-1 victories over Fulham and Sunderland.
