The seventh Game Week of Barclays Premier League 2011/12 begins on Saturday 1st October 2011, on a balmy autumn day.
Six matches are scheduled for Saturday, beginning with a big Merseyside derby, when Everton host near-neighbours Liverpool at Goodison Park.
Current table-toppers, and holding champions, Manchester United are in action at Old Trafford, where they entertain newly promoted Norwich City. United will be hoping for a little better than their last two games in the Premier League and Champions League, which saw them draw matches from winning positions, thanks, in some degree, to careless defence.
United’s rivals, Manchester City, are in action away at Blackburn’s Ewood Park, in a match between sides at opposite ends of the table. Blackburn desperately need points to get out of the drop zone, while City will be hoping for all three to maintain their quest for a first Premier League crown.
Other games on Saturday see Aston Villa host Wigan, Sunderland entertain West Brom and Newcastle travel to Mick McCarthy’s Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Full fixtures for Saturday 1 October 2011 are below.
