Manish Bhasin, Mark Lawrenson, Lee Dixon and Martin Keown look ahead to the weekend's football action.

Games include the season's first clash between Chelsea and Manchester United, a fixture which is likely to have an important bearing on who wins the title. The early kick-off sees Sunderland host local rivals Middlesbrough at the Stadium of Light. Arsenal's title credentials will be tested by Bolton, who beat the drop last season under Gary Megson. Stoke face a daunting trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool while at Upton Park West Ham meet Newcastle.
