Chelsea may be leading the English Premier League at the moment, but two teams planning to challenge the Blues for the top spot face off in one of Saturday’s marquee matches.

Arsenal faces Manchester City at the Emirates in an early-morning showdown. Arsenal topped City in the Community Shield last month, but City should be a tougher team this time around.

In Spain, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid renew their rivalry. Atletico got the better of their big-spending rivals in the Spanish Super Cup, but the Merengues will look to ride the excellent form of Gareth Bale to victory.

In MLS, the Philadelphia Union take on the New York Red Bulls in a key MLS clash at PPL Park. The Union are riding high lately and will look to put a dent into the Red Bulls’ playoff hopes while also building some momentum before Tuesday’s U.S. Open Cup Final.
