Chelsea host Everton in the early kickoff, with a full schedule to follow in England and beyond.

Chris Brunskill

Not the most captivating weekend on the whole in the Premier League, but there's a pretty good start to the day with Everton traveling to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea (12:45PM GMT/7:45AM EST). An Everton loss is always a good thing, especially as it would ostensibly cast them adrift in the race for fourth, though a draw or Chelsea loss would be just fine as well. Another win-win-win(ish) match, especially if we're getting ambitious about Liverpool's hopes of getting in the title mix. Crystal Palace host Manchester United (5:30PM GMT/12:30PM EST) in a match that could prove challenging for the visitors; Palace have been much, much better under Tony Pulis, and it's be easy to see David Moyes' squad dropping points here.

A range of other Liverpool loanees could see action on the day, including Fabio Borini, who travels to the Emirates with Sunderland (3:00PM GMT/10:00AM EST), and Suso, whose Almeria side host Malaga in La Liga's late kickoff (9:00PM GMT/4:00PM EST). Jack Robinson and Jordon Ibe might square off at some point with Birmingham City heading to Blackpool (3:00PM GMT/10:00AM EST) as well.
