WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Premier League: Everton at Arsenal, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Ch. 11. The bottom of the Premier League table is so compacted that Everton has only three points in its last six games, flirted with relegation before that, yet still is in the top half of the standings. Arsenal has a raft of new players. Can some fresh faces turn the team around?
La Liga: Barcelona at Espanyol, 9 a.m. Sunday, beIN. Just two weeks ago, Espanyol hosted its more successful crosstown rivals in the Copa del Rey and came away with a 1-0 victory, with Lionel Messi missing a penalty kick. It was Barcelona’s first loss in a meaningful competition this year. Can Espanyol do it again and ruin Barca’s undefeated bid?
Premier League: Liverpool at Tottenham Hotspur, 10:30 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. Liverpool is the strangest team in the Premier League. Its past two matches were a victory against previously undefeated Manchester City and a loss against then-last-place Swansea City. The Reds have a history of playing well in big games like this one.
Liga MX: Tigres at Pumas, noon Sunday, Univision. It’s early in the season, but Pumas — last in the fall standings — are on the other side of the table after four spring games, undefeated and tied for the league lead. Tigres, though, are on the verge of becoming a dynasty and will present a big early challenge for Pumas.
