Spurs and the blues are heated rivals and this clash is set to provide an explosive end to the weekend’s action.

Tottenham have enjoyed a better-than-expected start to the season under the new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, but the challenge of facing Chelsea – a club with genuine ambition of winning the premier league title this term – will require an even higher level of performance.

Newcastle United v Leeds United

The round opens on Friday night with Newcastle United hosting Leeds United at St. James Park, while the early clash on Saturday afternoon sees Wolverhampton Wanderers hosting Brentford.

It’s then the turn of heavyweights Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal to face South Crystal Palace and Burnley respectively, before Everton’s progress under Rafael Benitez is put to the test with a trip to Birmingham to face Aston Villa.

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea

Sunday, aside from the derby between Spurs and Chelsea, will also see Leicester City tested away to Brighton and Hove Albion, while Manchester United will tackle West Ham United and former manager David Moyes at the London Stadium.

The hammers will hope for a better playing surface this time around, after struggling with the pitch at their home ground for a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace prior to the international break.

Supersport is also also the only place to get English commentary on the legendary La Liga!

The key La Liga fixture to watch out for this weekend’s round of matches comes from Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, as champions Atletico Madrid face Athletic Bilbao.

The Basque side nearly derailed the Rojiblancos’ title charge when the teams last met in April, as goals from Alex Berenguer and Inigo Martinez secured a 2-1 home win.

Barcelona, meanwhile, will chase a home win over Granada at Camp Nou. Manager Ronald Koeman has praised his side for the fighting spirit they have shown thus far in the 2021-22 season.

Real Madrid will face a potential banana skin away to Valencia, who famously beat Los Blanco 4-1 when the teams last met Estadio de Mestalla, though manager Carlo Ancelotti is confident in his side’s ability to tough out a victory on the road.

La Liga this weekend will also feature Real Sociedad looking to knock Sevilla off their stride with a meeting at San Sebastian, though manager Imanol Alguacil admits that balancing his side’s domestic commitments with their upcoming UEFA Europa League group stage campaign against Monaco, PSV and Strum Graz will be ‘’tough’’.

The headline game from Italy’s top-flight Serie A in this round sees Juventus host AC Milan

The headline game from Italy’s top-flight Serie A in this round sees Juventus host AC Milan at the Allianz stadium in Turin, a match which could prove key in the title race.

The fixture not only sees a meeting of two of the league’s best and most historically significant sides but also has added spice in that Bianconeri manager Massimiliano Allegri will be coming up against a former team of his.

Elsewhere, Roma has made headlines with their early-season form under Jose Mourinho and will back themselves to claim all three points when they travel to face Verona, while champions Internazionale will feel the same for their game at home to Bologna.

Napoli will face a trip to the Dacia Arena to take on Udinese, with manager Luciano Spalletti praising Italian national team star Lorenzo Insigne for his versatility in attack in the recent games, helping to cover the suspension of Victor Osimhen (who will now be available again).
