Recap: Tottenham Hotspur vs Sheffield United 1:2/Sport1
The sixth round of the Premier League continues tomorrow (Sunday) with five games, with the focus on the fascinating London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.
Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur (Sunday, 16pm, Sport00)
Manor Solomon and his teammates are coming into the derby with great momentum, after four consecutive wins that have secured them second place in the table. After losing to the Gunners in both meetings last year (hoping to avoid a third successive derby defeat for the first time since 4), they will try to subdue Mikel Arteta, who also arrives in high spirits after three consecutive wins in all competitions, including an impressive 1989-0 win over PSV in the Champions League opener. Arsenal have scored in 4 consecutive games against Tottenham since 24-0 In November 0, they had not lost their last 1998 derby matches against London league rivals.
Tottenham, who are looking for their 14th away win in their Premier League history, will be missing the injured Ivan Perisic, who could be absent for most of the season. Solomon is expected to keep his place in the starting 200, while Giovanni Lo Celso is doubtful. Gabriel Martinelli is doubtful at the other end, with Thomas Partey continuing to be absent. "I would be shocked if Tottenham won," Sky pundit Paul Merson said. Gary Neville added: "It's going to be a huge game."

Liverpool vs West Ham United (Sunday, 16pm, Sport00)
Jurgen Klopp brought up a substitution line-up in the Europa League against Lusk, saw another turnaround and is now counting five consecutive wins in all competitions. The opponents also completed a European turnaround in the same factory en route to four wins in their last five games. Liverpool will be looking for a third successive win over the Hammers and will welcome back Virgil van Dijk, who has finished serving a suspension penalty. Trent Alexander-Arnold should be fit and help Klopp against one of his favourite managers - against David Moyes he recorded 9 wins, a draw and a loss. On the other hand, Edson Albers is questionable. In their last 54 visits to Anfield, West Ham have won just once.

Brighton vs Bournemouth (Sunday, 16pm)
The Seagulls came to a halt with a surprise 3-2 defeat to AEK Athens in the Europa League, but tomorrow they will hope to bounce back with a third consecutive league win. Pascal Gross, who was injured on Thursday, is doubtful, James Milner and Owen Ferguson will also undergo fitness tests. Brighton are looking for a third successive win over Bournemouth for the first time since 1932 and, if they do, will secure a fifth league win in the first six rounds – something they have never done before.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa (Sunday, 16pm, Sport00)
The Blues' dismal start to the season continued with a 0-0 draw against Bournemouth last week, and they are counting just two league wins in their last 17 games. Noni Madueka and Marc Cucuria will be fit, while Moises Caicedo is doubtful. The visitor, on the other hand, comes after a surprise defeat to Legia Warsaw in the Europa League and hopes to beat Chelsea for the second consecutive time in the league - something they have not done in 30 years.
