The Merseyside Derby is without a doubt the most anticipated fixture this weekend, with high-flying table leaders Everton hosting defending champions Liverpool at Goodison Park kicking off at 2:30Pm Ugandan time.
Everton Manger Carlo Anchelotti will expect his team of in-form stars James Rodriguez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin to stay on top of their game on the afternoon.
Liverpool on the other hand are looking for redemption after being walloped by Aston Villa 7 – 2 prior to the international break.
In Manchester, the better club, that is Manchester City, will host Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal at the Etihad stadium in what promises to be an entertaining encounter between teacher and student. Pep Guardiola being the teacher in this scenario.
