After a two-week break for international football, the Premier League returns, kicking off the weekend with the North London derby as sixth-place Arsenal host third-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs start the game as slight favourites despite playing at the Emirates Stadium, but their record against the top clubs in the Premier League has been poor this season. A win for Arsenal will move them to within one point of their rivals and firmly in the hunt for a top-four place.

The other big news is the return of David Moyes to Premier League management as the former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager takes charge at West Ham United.

Moyes, whose arrival at the London Stadium has been met with plenty of derision, is tasked with guiding 18th-placed West Ham to Premier League safety. His first assignment is a trip to Watford.

In this week's Extra Time podcast, Jon Turner and Graham Caygill discuss the North London derby and Moyes' return before providing predictions for all 10 Premier League fixtures.
