Tottenham Hotspur vs. Crystal Palace — Watch live, 8:30 a.m. ET on USA and online via Live Extra

It’s a London derby on Sunday as Tottenham hosts Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane. After a slow start to the season, Tottenham is coming off of two straight wins, beating Sunderland in the Premier League and handling Azerbaijani side Qarabag midweek in the Europa League. Son Heung-Min scored his first two goals for the club on Thursday, and Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for more of the same against Palace, as Spurs have only managed four goals in five PL matches. For Crystal Palace, Alan Pardew‘s men will be looking to get back on track after a last-minute loss to Manchester City last week. The Eagles have been playing some very attractive football to start the season, and it should be an entertaining affair between two attack-minded managers in Pardew and Pochettino.

Southampton vs. Manchester United — Watch live, 11 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra

Ronald Koeman was an assistant under Louis Van Gaal at Barcelona in the late 90’s, and he’ll get a chance to beat his former boss at St. Mary’s in an important match between Southampton and Manchester United. After a record season last year, Saints have managed just one win through five matches and are coming off of a bland draw against West Brom. For United, a big win over Liverpool was cancelled out after a midweek defeat to Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, where Luke Shaw suffered a double leg fracture all but ending his season. With Manchester City losing to West Ham, a win for United would put them in second place just two points behind their cross-town rivals.

Liverpool vs. Norwich City — Watch live, 11 a.m. ET on USA and online via Live Extra

Liverpool hosts Norwich City without captain Jordan Henderson, who was ruled out for 6-8 weeks after breaking his foot in training this week. However, Daniel Sturridge could be included in the lineup after recovering from hip surgery and Philippe Coutinho is back from suspension, which is a massive boost for the Reds. Liverpool has only scored three goals in five matches, tied for fewest in the league, so getting back two of their biggest threats on the attack will have supporters hoping for a big win at home. For Norwich City, getting a point on the road would be considered a successful trip to Anfield, as the Canaries could move into the top half of the table with a result.
