Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United
This should be a fascinating encounter between two illustrious sides who are both capable of playing some fantastic football when at their best. Spurs are the favourites to take three points from this encounter, especially with home advantage on their side, but could face some major resistance from the revitalised visitors.

European Rugby Champions Cup: Newcastle Falcons v Toulon
The Falcons inflicted a rare home defeat on Toulon earlier in this competition and the French megastars will be out for revenge at Kingston Park. Newcastle will be hoping that the injury problems which have afflicted his squad in recent months do not harm his side's chances.

Premier League: Wolverhampton v Leicester City

Premier League: Arsenal v Chelsea
Unai Emery’s no-nonsense approach appears to be doing the trick for the Gunners this season and the manager will be aiming to close the gap on the teams above him in the League table. Arsenal have tightened up their defence markedly during the current season but will have to keep a close watch on the likes of Eden Hazard.

Super League: St Helens v Wigan Warriors
The 2019 Super League season gets underway with a massive game as reigning champions Wigan Warriors take on St Helens at the DW Stadium. The Warriors have promised to play a ‘flamboyant’ style of rugby this season so there should be plenty of tries on offer in this unmissable curtain-raiser. ‚Äč
