A hugely important London Derby headlines a full slate of matches on Saturday as English Premier League leaders Chelsea take on fierce rivals Arsenal in an early-morning showdown.
The Blues enter Saturday atop the EPL table with four wins and a draw in their first five games, but they face a massive test in the Gunners, who despite sitting in fifth place are also unbeaten themselves. Chelsea have been helped out by the news that captain John Terry's four-match ban will not take effect quite yet, meaning he is available for this morning's clash with Arsenal.
Another big match in England sees second-place Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney could feature in the starting lineup for the Red Devils, although they will be without Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia. Meanwhile, Clint Dempsey could get his first crack at a top EPL team since joining Tottenham earlier this season.
In Spain, Barcelona put their perfect record through five games on the line as they travel to take on Sevilla. Barcelona haven't dropped any points this season, but Sevilla are also yet to drop any points at home. Something has to give on Saturday in this massive late-afternoon match.
