PSG host Troyes; Liverpool visit Stoke; United travel to Watford

It’s the definition of low-key this midweek, as only the Premier League and Ligue 1 will be action, the others putting needless things like ‘getting a rest’ and ‘taking some time off’ into consideration. The audacity!!!

Speaking of audacity, Watford are doing a fair bit of impressing in the league this season, their 3-0 win at Newcastle sees them only four points away from the top four. Their next game is at home to Manchester United, a side they beat here last season. Again, the audacity!!

Manchester United’s table-topping rivals Manchester City, fresh from working their socks off at Huddersfield, will play host to Southampton, who opened their floodgates by beating Everton 4-1 on Sunday.

And the team that rounds off the top three in the Premier League, champions Chelsea, welcome a Tammy Abraham-less Swansea to the Bridge. The fact that the Swans’ best Premier League result here is 2-2 draw is an indication of the task that lies ahead.

Elsewhere, Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain host Troyes, while Lyon go up against Lille, Arsenal welcome Huddersfield to North London, slipping Tottenham travel to Leicester, while Monaco- fresh from acquiring a new sporting director in Michael Emenalo- visit Nantes.
