Arsenal play host to Manchester City on Saturday in the biggest game of the Premier League weekend.

The Gunners are looking to force their way back into the Premier League title race after the six-goal drubbing at Chelsea and the 2-2 draw with Swansea at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

But City are looking to keep breathing down the necks of leaders Chelsea with a win in North London.

Liverpool are also in the title hunt and will entertain Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, while Champions League outsiders Everton travel to Fulham on the same day.

Leaders Chelsea make the short trip across the River Thames to Crystal Palace, while beleaguered Manchester United entertain Aston Villa in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

Here's a rundown of the latest team news.
