The weekend action will also see Liverpool face Fulham at Anfield, Arsenal travel to Nottingham Forest, and Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester City will be looking to make it four Premier League titles in a row, but they will face stiff competition from big teams such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea, as these teams have strengthened their squad with new signings.
