United, Chelsea look to rebound
Manchester United will aim to prove there is still life in their Premier League season after their derby drubbing by Manchester City when they travel to Goodison Park to face Everton on Saturday.
And United's South Korean midfielder Park Ji-sung - who sat out the 6-1 thrashing at Old Trafford last week - is not understating the importance of his side getting back on track against David Moyes' men.
Park, who figured in United's 3-0 League Cup win over Aldershot in midweek, told United's official website: "We have to put it right on the pitch. It's a very important game for us and we have to go there and fight to get the points."
Roberto Mancini's City are red-hot favourites to continue their march at the top of the table as they prepare to host Wolverhampton Wanderers, having also beaten Mick McCarthy's men 5-2 in the League Cup on Wednesday.
But Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara believes his struggling side can still fashion an upset. "We showed we can score goals against them," O'Hara told Wolves official site. "These are the games you want to be involved in."
Chelsea travel to Arsenal
John Terry is expected to return to the Chelsea line-up to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium despite being the subject of a Football Association investigation.
Terry was rested for Chelsea's midweek League Cup win at Everton and it would be a major surprise if he missed out again with Andre Villas-Boas' men desperate for points after last week's loss at Queens Park Rangers.
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger insists his side are ready to face Chelsea's challenge as they have continued to pick up form after a dismal start. "I do know one thing - these players we have at the moment are ready for a fight," Wenger said.
Bent faces Sunderland scrutiny
Aston Villa coach Alex McLeish believes the spiky reception his striker Darren Bent is expected to receive when he returns to his former club Sunderland on Saturday can bring the best out of him.
Bent is public enemy number one on Wearside following his £18 million move to Villa in January, but McLeish said: "When you leave a club to go somewhere else they see you as the enemy and that's the fans' prerogative.
"Darren is experienced and mature enough to know that happens in football and I'm sure it won't faze him in his attempt to score a goal past Sunderland. I'll certainly be looking for a big performance from him."
Suarez in doubt for Reds
Luis Suarez is a doubt for Liverpool's trip to West Bromwich Albion after limping off towards the end of his side's League Cup win at Stoke City in midweek, in which the Uruguayan scored both goals.
Albion also have striker problems, with Irishman Shane Long ruled out for six weeks after being injured in the win over Aston Villa last week, and Cameroonian striker Somen Tchoyi set to start in his place.
Bottom club Blackburn Rovers head for Norwich City boosted by their midweek League Cup win over Newcastle United, while fellow strugglers Bolton Wanderers travel to Swansea City and Wigan Atheltic meet Fulham at the DW Stadium seeking to end a run of six straight defeats.
On Sunday, Neil Warnock's QPR will aim to pull off another upset as they travel to Tottenham Hotspur, and Monday night's match sees Alan Pardew's unbeaten Newcastle visit Stoke.
