Manchester City will attempt to knock Chelsea off their perch at the top of the English Premier League when the two teams meet in the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Both clubs are coming off disappointing midweek performances in the UEFA Champions League, but with an extra day of rest, Man City are hoping that their home form can help lead to Chelsea’s first defeat of the season. The Blues will have Diego Costa back in the lineup though, and the Spanish international has proven prolific in the EPL this season, with seven goals from four games.

In Italy, it’s a top of the table clash as AC Milan host three-time defending champions Juventus in a crucial early-season match. Milan are coming off a thrilling 5-4 victory over Parma, and the match sees former Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri return to the San Siro, this time in charge of Juventus.

Following a morale-boosting Champions League victory over Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp and Borussia Dortmund face Klopp’s former club in Mainz, looking to stay in the race for first place in the Bundesliga.

Also in action this weekend, the MLS playoff race heats up with the Seattle Sounders visiting the New York Red Bulls, the high-flying New England Revolution hitting the road to face the Columbus Crew, and the LA Galaxy trying to continue their unbeaten run against FC Dallas.

Which games will you be watching? Excited to see so many big matches on the schedule as MLS hits the stretch run? Think Chelsea can hold off City?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. “Both clubs are coming off disappointing midweek performances in the UEFA Champions League, but with an extra day of rest, Man City are hoping that their home form can help lead to Chelsea’s first defeat of the season”

    Actually both City and Chelsea played Champions league on Wednesday. Neither team will have an extra day of rest before their Sunday match up.

  2. Better yet,

    Millwall FC vs. Nottingham Forest FC

    • They mention MLS because it’s our top flight domestic league and the majority of people that follow Ives are interested in games that start later than 4:30a pst.

      You, however, are clearly from Manchester, or at least spent your formative years there. In fact, you’re probably even buddy buddy with “Kun”.

      • Buddy Buddy… MLS should be with Australian League, Korea & Japan League… But they are not yet top level..
        Yeah Kun is my Hommie!

      • He said it’s OUR top flight league you jacka$$

        I swear, every thread I read you’re always on it. Go away.

      • I know it’s going to be super hard for you, but can we please stay on topic?

        Are you seriously suggesting that Ives and co. should omit MLS from a column called “Soccer on TV” — a column that is written in the US and is primarily patronized by people who live here?

        This is a real question and I want you to answer it.

  3. interesting, i have AT&T U-verse and GolTV is now included in my package. when beIN came along, i lost GolTV (which went to the FS+ route). i never thought that made sense. why would beIN make it change tiers? anyway, seems U-verse has corrected that terrible idea and put GolTV back in the sports tier along with NFL network, beIN, etc.

    unfortunately they don’t have a streaming option like the others so i’m still SOL while at work. dang.

  4. They mentioned MLS this week. I am going to buy a Stihl Chainsaw just to support the sponser.

    LA Dallas on Saturday is HUGE.

    • It sounds low rent but not 2 years ago some teams didnt have shirt sponsors. Now except for like 3 or 4 teams SS Stadiums, shirt sponsors and academies and local youth outreach is par for the course.

      We keep talking about how much we have yet to achieve over looking what we have. Lets all buy chainsaws and drink that crappy tequila that sponsors MLS and help the league to grow.
