LONDON, Sporting Alert – English Premier League standings and fixtures ahead of the Week 16 round of matches on Saturday, Dec. 9 and Sunday, Dec. 10.

As expected, the Manchester and Merseyside derby games are the highlighted fixtures this week.

EPL leaders Manchester City will travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in their city rivalry game on Sunday with both teams seeking a win for different reasons.

The Citizens enter this game with an eight-point cushion over the Red Devils, but will aim to win all three points to extend their advantage to 11 points before the Christmas festivities.

A win for Manchester United, who will be without the suspended Paul Pogba, would keep the leaders honest and trim the deficit to five points.

Meanwhile, at Anfield, the red-hot Liverpool will host Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday as well.

A win for the Reds would keep them at least in the Top 4, while Everton would move closer to their rivals with all three points.
