  • Six things to look out for in this weekend’s Premier League action
The Premier League returns with a north London derby featuring Harry Kane this weekend as Tottenham look to close the gap at the top of the table. 
 
With all of the big six in action on the Saturday, the latest round of fixtures could have big consequences, as Manchester City look to maintain their unbeaten run and at the other end, David Moyes makes the return to management that nobody asked for. 
 
Sports Predictor has picked up on six things to watch out for on matchday 12. 
 

HARRY KANE IS BACK

Harry Kane will be fit having sat out international duty and the Tottenham striker's record in north London derbies is simply incredible. The 24-year-old has scored six in his last five against the Gunners. Kane is at evens to score in 90 minutes or 100/30 to score first. For the hosts, the obvious choice would be their top scorer Alexandre Lacazette, but Arsene Wenger has an odd knack for dropping him for the big games. 
 

DAVID MOYES IS BACK TOO

It's fair to say the former Manchester United and Everton boss is not a universally popular appointment among West Ham fans. Slaven Bilic has made way, but it remains to be seen whether this particular change of manager will have the desired effect. The Hammers are 5/2 to beat Watford, who have their own managerial concerns - namely keeping Marco Silva out of Everton's clutches. 
 

PULIS UNDER PRESSURE

West Brom welcome Chelsea to the Hawthorns and it's fair to say Antonio Conte will have plenty of sympathy with the plight of his opposite number. Both managers are under significant pressure going into this one, but the Blues shouldn't have too many problems. Tony Pulis has come under fire from some Baggies supporters for sunning himself on the beach during the international break and unless he pulls something off spectacular, he's set for more criticism. Chelsea are 8/13.
 

LIVERPOOL DEFEND WELL AT HOME

For all their notorious defensive problems, Liverpool have only let in one Premier League goal at home this season. Put that together with Southampton's lack of goals, and Liverpool with both teams to score - no looks the safest option at 11/8. 
 

BRIGHTON ARE FINDING THEIR RHYTHM

Chris Hughton's men endured a tough start to the season, but they've steered themselves to eighth. With eight points from their last four games, they haven't lost at home since October 12, which makes them a promising shout at 7/5 against Stoke. The Potters are by no means out of trouble despite picking up four points from their last two games. 
 

CAN ANYONE STOP CITY?

Pep Guardiola has already batted away talk of Manchester City pulling off an invincible season, but Leicester certainly won't fancy their chances. Not only have City scored 10 goals in their last three matches in all competitions, they are getting goals from all over the park. Sergio Aguero fainted in midweek but even if the Argentine has not recovered in time for the trip to the King Power, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, and Kevin de Bruyne are likely to be among the goals. Jesus and Sane both to score is at 11/4.
