The English Premier League and La Liga return to action today with a packed viewing schedule for soccer fans here in the United States.

One of the day’s most intriguing matchups will take place at Old Trafford, where Manchester United will welcome Southampton. The defending champions have trudged out to ninth place to start David Moyes’s first season in charge, five places behind a surprising Saints squad that has not allowed a goal in its last six matches across all competitions.

Saturday’s EPL action starts at St. James’ Park as an up-and-down Newcastle United team hosts second-place Liverpool. The Reds are undefeated away from home this season, and their hosts have not exactly performed well in front of their fans so far, winning just one of their first three home matches.

In Spain, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid look to stay perfect through their Saturday road trips. Barca visit an Osasuna team that has played close with other Spanish powers this season while Atletico travel to Espanyol, who are desperate to snap a three-match losing streak after such an impressive start to the season.
