Barclays #Premier League will be back this weekend with some great matches. The tenth round will bring some interesting games where results could go either way. Manchester clubs are performing well so far and dominating the standings.

League leaders, Manchester City, are unbeaten so far, whereas their local rival and trailing team, #Manchester United, tasted the first defeat last weekend against a newly promoted side, Huddersfield Town. Here are five things to watch out for in the upcoming round of matches.

Can Man United get back on track?

Manchester United will lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Both teams have performed well this season and have twenty points each in the standings.

Manchester United is in the second spot with Tottenham right behind them.

Tottenham struggled a bit at the beginning of the season, but they have bounced back well and haven’t lost a game in their last five Premier League matches. Manchester United started the season off very good, giving their fans high hopes.

Manchester United thrashed a few teams to start the year, however, their last two games didn't go as planned. In the eighth round, Manchester United parked the bus against Liverpool and played a goalless draw. In the next round, they faced their first defeat of the season against Huddersfield by a score of 2-1.

This weekends battle will be a test for both teams. Tottenham currently has less goal-differential than United, and they have to win if they want to move into second place.

Can Huddersfield daze a top team again?

Huddersfield outperformed the title-contending Manchester United last weekend. No one had expected United to lose against a newly promoted side. Huddersfield’s cool and calm game earned them a 2-1 win over the Red Devils on their home turf.

Huddersfield is looking forward to doing the same thing to Liverpool this time around. The Reds haven’t performed well this season and currently sit in ninth place with 13 points. Liverpool has won only one game in their last five Premier League games.

It won’t be so easy for Huddersfield Town, but this is what can be expected from them, especially after how they stunned Manchester United. Huddersfield has also only won one game in their last five and are the eleventh team in the standings with 12 points.

How will Everton perform, given the firing of their manager?

Everton’s board of directors fired Ronald Koeman on October 23 after a big loss against the Arsenal. Everton couldn’t find the right path this season with Koeman as they only managed to win two games, and consequently, the manager left the team in 18th place with only eight points in nine games.

They’ll visit King Power Stadium this weekend to face Leicester.

The Foxes have also been struggling this season and have only won two Premier League games. A defeat in the next round can drag them to the relegation zone.

Defending champions will look to find their way

Chelsea finished off their last Premier League season on top with 93 points. However, they’ve failed to duplicate last season’s performance and have lost three games and dropped 13 points already.

They’ll travel to Vitality Stadium this weekend to face Bournemouth. Chelsea won their last game against Watford by 4-2 in the closing minutes. However, Watford led most of the match with a 2-0 advantage before bowing out.

Bournemouth has lost six games already this season. They are currently in nineteenth place with seven points, and a loss against Chelsea could make it harder for them to avoid the relegation zone. Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte may not be able to survive any more losses before his job is in jeopardy. #Carabao Cup
