The European football was a lot of fun this week but now our attention turns back to domestic matters, with a big weekend of Premier League action to come.

We’ve made our predictions …

Game of the weekend 💪

Liverpool v Everton

Everton fans are no doubt sick of hearing that their last Merseyside derby victory came way back in 2010.

And they are no doubt even sicker of hearing that their last Merseyside derby victory at Anfield came in 1999.

That torrid run has to end sometime, and it could be a while before they get a better chance than this Saturday.

Liverpool welcome their neighbours from the other side of Stanley Park having been beaten by Burnley, Brighton and Manchester City in their last three games at home.

The champions have lost their Anfield fear factor and their decimated defence is there to be got at.

But Everton haven’t been in great form themselves of late, and their attacking threat is a lot less potent without Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

If the Toffees come unstuck this weekend, their fans might start to wonder if they’re ever going to beat Liverpool again.

📊 Fun fact: Liverpool v Everton is the most-drawn fixture in Premier League history, with 24 of the meetings between the sides ending level. The Merseyside derby has also seen more red cards than any other fixture in the competition, with 22.

🔮 Our prediction: Liverpool 3-2 Everton

Potential upset 😨

Arsenal v Manchester City

Everything has been going well for Manchester City lately. Perhaps a little too well.

And it wouldn’t be the hugest shock in the world if an old friend were to put a roadblock in front of their procession towards the title this weekend.

City have got the better of Arsenal in their previous two meetings this season but Mikel Arteta appeared to have Pep Guardiola’s number when the two sides met in the FA Cup semi-final back in July and maybe the apprentice can get one over on his old master again this weekend.

It still seems weird to refer to Arsenal beating City as a potential upset, but it would be.

📊 Fun fact: Arsenal have failed to score in their last three home league games against City, losing each time.

🔮 Our prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City
