The North London Derby headlines this weekend's proceedings as Tottenham and Arsenal renew one of the fiercest rivalries in world soccer.

Brad Friedel and Spurs will be the favorites, but you can never predict what will happen when Harry Redknapp's squad takes on Arsene Wenger's team. The Gunners will come in with some confidence after posting an important Champions League victory.

There are Derbys galore around the world, but another English derby will share headlines with Tottenham/Arsenal, as the Merseyside Derby captures the attention of viewers on both sides of the pond.

MLS features a handful of quality match-ups, from the West Coast clash between Los Angeles and Real Salt Lake, to the important East Coast match-up between D.C. United and Columbus. The loaded playoff race should come into focus after those matches, as well as Houston's tangle with the Chicago Fire.
