After a shock win against a tactical Barcelona team, Man city need to be worried of  Aitor Karanka`s men.

Manchester city`s Yaya Toure is expected to get a return to the team as he tenders an apology to the board on behalf of his agent.

As Middlesbrough chug into view, it is now imperative that feet are brought swiftly back to earth and the task of maintaining a slender lead atop the Premier League is given preference.

On the other hand, Liverpool looking more and more like a legitimate title contender.

Liverpool has been one of the best attacking sides this season, but with a leaky defense.

Liverpool’s blistering start to the season and attractive style of football has seen many people tip them to compete for the Premier League title in 2016-17.

The Reds are currently level on points with Manchester City and Arsenal atop the league table and with results and performances have already given strong indication that they mean business under Jorgen Klopp this season.

 

The Biggest of all is the North London derby.

Can Arsenal seize their chance of a significant win over Tottenham side?

Free-scoring Arsenal host a wavering but dangerous Tottenham. Beating Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday would be huge for Arsenal. Already level on points with leaders Manchester City, the meeting at the Emirates is not only an opportunity for the Gunners to end Tottenham’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season, but also to give their own title credentials a shot in the arm. Arsene Wenger’s side looks good for it too. They have not lost since the opening weekend against Liverpool and have since won games such as at Sunderland and Ludogorets ,  they would probably have drawn or lost previously.

Their most impressive weapon at the moment is their attacking unpredictability. It is not the quantity of goals Arsenal are scoring, but the variety, couple that with the fifth-best defensive record in the division and it’s clear Wenger has his most balanced and competitive squad in years.

The stars also seem to be aligning for the Gunners going into this weekend. Spurs have not won in six matches in all competitions and head into this clash off the back of a performance against Bayern
