Its London Derby weekend in the Premiership, as Chelsea look to consolidate their position at the summit of the Premiership, against unbeaten Arsenal, at The Emirates on Saturday.

Despite the 4 match ban issued by the FA midweek on John Terry for racist remarks last season, he will be available while his appeal is lodged. This is the only good news for Di Matteo in reference to this particular saga. Having the experience of Terry in such a big match will be crucial for his team especially considering the red hot scoring form of the Gunners in recent times.

Second-placed Manchester United face Tottenham at Old Trafford with England striker Wayne Rooney set to make his Premier League return after a injury.

Reigning champions Manchester City, who have won just two of their five league games this season and conceded seven goals in the process, travel to in-form Fulham.

Liverpool go in search of their first league win this term when they travel to Norwich, while Newcastle manager Alan Pardew takes his side to bottom of the table Reading.

Saturday’s other matches sees Everton at home to Southampton, Stoke play Swansea and Sunderland face Wigan.

Aston Villa take on Midlands rivals West Brom on Sunday while Monday sees London rivals QPR and West Ham meet at Loftus Road.
