After several exciting FA Cup matches last week, the Premier League returned to action this weekend, and today’s schedule does not disappoint.
League leaders Manchester United will look to improve their lead to 10 points as they welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford. With two wins to kick off 2013, the Reds hope to continue their turnaround to a tumultuous 2012.
Looking to prevent a double digit deficit, Manchester City will travel to Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal. City manager Roberto Mancini stated that Sergio Aguero will not be returning for today’s match, but is expected to make his way back next week against Fulham.
In Spain, Malaga will take their shot at being the first team to beat Barcelona when they play host to Lionel Messi and Co. Young striker Isco will look to cause problems for the Barca back-line, while Oguchi Onyewu just might feature against the La Liga leaders.
