Last Updated: 06/10/18 1:35pm
What questions could be answered by the time the final whistles go in the latest round of Premier League matches?
The action starts on Friday Night Football as Brighton host West Ham, live on Sky Sports Premier League, while Man Utd are in action on Saturday against Newcastle at Old Trafford at teatime.
WATCH: Liverpool v City best moments
We look back at some of the most memorable moments between Liverpool and Man City from over the years
On Sunday, Arsenal are at Fulham, Chelsea go to Southampton on Super Sunday, before the big clash at Anfield as Liverpool host Man City, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
Here are the big questions ahead of all 10 matches...
Can West Ham continue their fine form on the box? (Brighton v West Ham, Friday Night Football, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 7pm)
West Ham's last three games, all on Sky Sports, have brought seven points out of a possible nine, turning their season round after four defeats from four.
Manuel Pellegrini's side are starting to tick, with Marko Arnautovic in fine form and the defence looking tighter, but Brighton are tough opposition at the Amex.
They have lost just one of their last seven at home, but Chris Hughton desperately needs a result having not won in six in all competitions.
How much will Liverpool's late leveller impact Chelsea? (Southampton v Chelsea, Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 1pm)
It was almost in the bag. Chelsea looked to have kept Liverpool at bay until Daniel Sturridge's stunning late equaliser at Stamford Bridge last week, leaving them two points off the pace.
It remains to be seen what psychological impact this will have on Maurizio Sarri's side, who have impressed in the early stages of the season with an unbeaten start.
An intriguing trip to Southampton comes next, who beat Everton in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Chelsea, on the back of their Europa League clash with Videoton, will welcome back rested stars, and as ever Eden Hazard is key. He's in the form of his life, but will he show consistency through the winter months?
Has Pep Guardiola found the way, or does Jurgen Klopp still have his number? (Liverpool v Man City, Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 4.15pm)
"I don't think for one minute Pep Guardiola's going to fall into that trap again," said Jamie Carragher in his big-match lowdown.
This is the big one. After four eventful and dramatic duels last season, the country will see what Pep Guardiola has learned from last season's disappointments.
Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side
Pick your dream six-a-side team from Liverpool v Man City for a chance to win £1,000.
The three defeats against Liverpool were the rare blotches on a fantastic season for City, knocking them out of the Champions League and ending their unbeaten record in January.
It may be slightly too early to call a title winner from the outcome of this game, but it will be fascinating to see the two managers' tactical approaches following unbeaten starts to the season.
Liverpool look solid and blistering, while City have quietly gone about their business dropping just two points. It's all set up to be a classic; can Klopp triumph yet again? And will the Anfield atmosphere make the difference?
Can Huddersfield finally get off the mark? (Burnley v Huddersfield, Saturday 3pm)
Granted, David Wagner's side have not had the easiest start to the season. In their opening seven games they have faced Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham, and got a credible draw at Everton, but two points gained overall is a worry.
Despite Burnley's upturn in form since their exit from the Europa League, Huddersfield will have marked this as a winnable game. They survived off grit and determination last term, and look to be suffering from second-season syndrome this time around.
They will look at Burnley as a shining example of where they would like to be in five years, though another top-half finish for Sean Dyche's side seems just as likely as a relegation scrap.
Will Wolves turn a good start into a great start? (Crystal Palace v Wolves, Saturday 3pm)
Many tipped them to adjust to the Premier League the best of the three promoted sides, but even the most ardent of Wolves fans would have predicted the start they have had.
Three wins, three draws and just one defeat in, Wolves go to the capital in the top half and with the top six in their sight, up against a Palace side who have stuttered of late.
Late defeat at Bournemouth may knock the stuffing out of them, and they will want a first win of the season at Selhurst to solidify a midtable spot. But Wolves may find stopping Wilfried Zaha means stopping Palace; they have not won a home where Zaha has not scored since January.
Who will win the battle of the No 10s? (Leicester v Everton, Saturday 3pm)
Back in June, Everton emerged as the frontrunners in the race to sign James Maddison from Norwich City and were expected to make the opening offer. The England U21 international was wanted by Marco Silva but it was Leicester who firmed up their interest.
Maddison was earmarked as the long-term replacement for Wayne Rooney, but Everton cooled their interest allowing Gylfi Sigurdsson to play in his preferred No 10 position at Goodison Park this term.
Having been bought for £22m by Leicester, Maddison has swiftly made that price look value in the current market, creating more goalscoring opportunities (15) and having more shots (15) than any of his team-mates.
But Sigurdsson has been just as influential for Everton this term, benefitting from not being shunted out wide to accommodate another No 10 as experienced under Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.
The Iceland international has scored three goals in his last three Premier League matches, more than he had in his previous 17 combined (two), and you suspect whoever comes out on top between the two creative schemers will have a huge say on the outcome at the King Power Stadium.
Can Kane complete the set against Cardiff? (Tottenham v Cardiff, Saturday 3pm)
It was not too long ago when Mauricio Pochettino was being urged to rest striker Harry Kane after appearing to look fatigued during the opening weeks of the season.
But Kane appears to have turned a corner following three goals in his last two Premier League games, and he has his sights on a new record at Wembley when struggling Cardiff are the visitors to the national stadium.
The England striker has scored against 26 of the 27 different sides he has faced in the Premier League, and the only team he has yet to find the net against are Cardiff.
He played just 16 minutes against them across two games in the 2013-14 campaign, but with Neil Warnock's side winless in their seven games so far this season, Kane will fancy his chances of completing the set this weekend.
Can Bournemouth stage another late show to end Vicarage Road hoodoo? (Watford v Bournemouth, Saturday 3pm)
Two teams who have enjoyed fine starts to the campaign face off in Hertfordshire. Watford and Bournemouth are locked on 13 points and separated only by the Hornets' superior goal difference, but there is a sense that these two could be heading in opposite directions.
After winning all four of their opening games, Javi Gracia's side are without a victory in their last four in all competitions.

Bournemouth shook off the 4-0 drubbing at Burnley to show their resilience with another dramatic winner in the 2-1 success over Crystal Palace on Monday night.
Since the start of last season, only Arsenal have collected more points than Bournemouth through goals scored in the final 10 minutes (13), while Watford have dropped the second-most number of points (12) in the same time.
Having won just once in their last 17 visits to Vicarage Road, the Cherries may have to rely on another late show to continue their good run of form.
Will Rafa 'park the cow' to put another nail in Mourinho's coffin? (Manchester United v Newcastle, Saturday 5.30pm)
It was during a game between Newcastle and Chelsea in December 2014 that Mourinho produced one of his most memorable managerial put-downs.
Having already been accused himself of 'parking the bus' at moments during his career, Mourinho was clearly vexed to be on the receiving end of Alan Pardew's defensive masterclass at St James' Park.
When asked if he would ever employ similar tactics, Mourinho said: "No. With anything? You may as well put a cow in the middle of the pitch. And then stop the game because there was a cow.
"You cannot do just anything in football. You have to defend with your 10 men, put the 10 men on the goal line, park the bus, but football needs a ball. Not two or zero. Do what you can to win but not everything.
"Sometimes there were zero balls and that cuts the dynamic of the team who is trying to win the game."
The Blues would go on to win the Premier League title despite that 2-1 reverse, but Rafa Benitez will be intent on frustrating Mourinho once more having witnessed how his former club Valencia stifled Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
A spirited stalemate in their last away outing at Crystal Palace offers hope Benitez can congest the Old Trafford pitch, and should he succeed in extending United's winless home run to five matches, Mourinho could soon be put out to pasture.
Will Seri shine against one of his biggest admirers? (Fulham v Arsenal, Sunday 12pm)
Jean Michael Seri was pursued by Unai Emery during the Spaniard's time at Paris Saint-Germain and the midfielder was widely tipped to join Arsenal before he signed for Fulham in the summer.
Concerns over Financial Fair Play Rules meant the French club opted to bring in Lassana Diarra on a free transfer instead, while Arsenal plumped for Lucas Torreira as the midfielder required to fill the void created by the departures of Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla.
In July, Seri joined the Cottagers along with Maxime Le Marchand from Nice in a double deal worth in excess of £30m, and the Ivory Coast international has impressed in his first seven appearances.
Arsenal fans have had to be patient to see Torreira in action, but the Uruguay international finally made his first Premier League start against Everton last month, and Arsenal have duly kept back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since April Fool's Day.
This Sunday at Craven Cottage, Seri has the chance to pit himself against Torreira with both determined to bring a modicum of control to what promises to be an open game on the River Thames.
