Leaders Arsenal are then away to fourth in the table Aston Villa at Villa Park in the early evening fixture, while also on Saturday in the Championship, Watford welcome Charlton to Vicarage Road.
Birmingham, Leicester and Reading are still in search of their first points and all at home on Sunday, while Manchester City host West Ham who are above them in the league.
