The English Premier League is back and it kicks off with a handful of juicy season-opening match-ups.

Tottenham and Manchester City faced off in a great battle for fourth place last season and this time around Manchester City will be looking to take care of unfinished business. Liverpool will begin its climb back to the Top Four on Sunday with a key battle against Arsenal. Those of you hoping to watch some Americans in action can see Clint Dempsey and Stuart Holden square off in the Fulham-Bolton clash.

The best weekend soccer action isn't just in England. Major League Soccer's marquee match-up features the New York Red Bulls playing host to the Los Angeles Galaxy, though some MLS fans would argue that the real MLS Cup preview is being played at Rio Tinto Stadium between Real Salt Lake and the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.
