Following a rough trip to Aston Villa and a disappointing Champions League performance against Bayern Munich, Manchester City look to get their season back on track with a home victory over the English Premier League’s last unbeaten team.

With three wins and three draws to start the season, Roberto Martinez’s Everton squad enter the Ethiad Stadium early Saturday with confidence and an impressive record against Man City in recent seasons. Tim Howard and the Toffees sit in fourth place after Monday’s victory against Newcastle United, which featured another fantastic performance from on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku.

The day’s EPL action wraps up at the Stadium of Light, where winless Sunderland prepare for their battle against a reeling 12th-place Manchester United. David Moyes and the defending league champions were stunned at home by West Bromwich Albion last weekend, and a midweek draw at Shahktar Donetsk did not do much for the Red Devils’ confidence heading into their final match before the international break.

While Man United battle Sunderland, defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich continue their hunt for the top spot in their league in a road match against Bayer Leverkusen. First-place Borussia Dortmund, who take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the league’s early Saturday offering, will definitely have their eyes on the result of this battle between their two biggest competitors in this early season race.
