Manchester City v Aston Villa Manchester City come into this one on the back of a solid 2-0 win over Crystal Palace but, to be honest, it could have been a lot more. Sergio Aguero was rested as Gabriel Jesus came into the starting XI, and the Brazilian combined well with Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem…

Lillestrøm v Vålerenga Here we have one of the big heated ‘derbies’ in Norwegian football between two teams who absolutely hate each other. Lillestrøm continue to hover just above water and a collection of recent draws have managed to give them a degree of comfort from the relegation zone. They could do with a win…

Both Preston and Leeds have enjoyed excellent starts to the Championship season and will each believe they have a realistic shot of winning this encounter. Leeds are deemed favourites, which is no real surprise considering they did the league…
