After the relatively busy midweek slate we're back to the weekend, where plenty of action across the globe awaits. England has a packed fixture list throughout the Football League; the Premier League has Aston Villa's trip to Manchester United to get things going (12:45PM GMT/8:45AM EST), and Manchester City's visit to the Emirates rounds things off (5:30PM GMT/1:30PM EST) with a match that has plenty of Liverpool-related implications depending on the outcome. Reds' loanees should see playing time throughout the top flight and lower leagues, with Birmingham City (Jordon Ibe), Derby County (Andre Wisdom), Blackpool (Jack Robinson), Barnsley (Ryan McLaughlin), Sheffield United (Conor Coady), Walsall (Michael Ngoo), and Southend United (Jakub Sokolik) all kicking off at 3:00PM GMT/11:00AM EST.

The top three in Spain are all in action as well, with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid traveling to Espanyol (3:00PM GMT/11:00AM EST) and Athletic Bilbao (7:00PM GMT/3:00PM EST) respectively, while Real Madrid host Rayo Vallecano in the late kickoff (9:00PM GMT/5:00PM EST). There's also a handful of matches to watch in the Bundesliga and Serie A, and all but three MLS sides will be playing at some point throughout the night.
