Over the past year or so, many have claimed that the German Bundesliga is the best league in the world.
However after Man United's demolition of Bayer Leverkusen (who sit second in the top league of German football) during the week, people have started to reevaluate or retract that statement.
Whether the Premier League is the best league in the world is a matter of opinion. But it is, without a shadow of doubt, the most competitive.
Below we take a look some of the fierce competitions being played out over the weekend...
West Ham v Fulham
The two London clubs find themselves in similar struggling positions ahead of this match. West Ham and Fulham both have only managed 10 points so far this season - and only goal difference divides the sides who sit 17th and 18th, respectively. Both the clubs' managers have come under much scrutiny in recent weeks. This game could be the last for either manager if they do not manage to get the desired result. This game could end up as a right old slug, most probably ending in a draw - which is not ideal for either manager.
Tottenham v Manchester United
After their embarrassing defeat at the hands of United's neighbours last week, Andre Villas Boas will be hoping his players put in a better shift this Sunday. Manchester United will be looking to continue on from their terrific midweek performance against Bayer Leverkusen. However they have looked suspect at the back this season - could Tottenham find their scoring form against the Red Devils? We suspect, though, if Spurs carry on playing in a similar light than they have been recently it may be a case of damage limitation for the North London club.
Chelsea v Southampton
In the past, when these two met, the outcome was inevitable - Chelsea would come out on top and, at times, give The Saints a bad beating. But, due to the seaside club's terrific start to the season, one can not be too sure of what will happen. Mauricio Pochettino saw his men lose to Arsenal last weekend, mainly due to sloppy defensive errors. As Southampton prepare to take on another Premiership titan, they will be hoping this game proves that they are serious top four contenders. There will be only one club supported by the neutral for this fixture - and it isn't The Blues.
