The Premier League returns this weekend after a two-week hiatus and there are a number of mouth-watering fixtures to look forward to.

Champions Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat to Aston Villa when they take on Merseyside rivals Everton, who boast a perfect record and top the table after four games.

Manchester United, also on the end of a big loss prior to the international break, head to Newcastle United - and there is also the small matter of Manchester City versus Arsenal.

Ahead of another action-packed matchweek in England's top flight, why not have a crack at our Opta-powered quiz? Find the answers at the bottom of the page...
