That’s your lot for 2014’s international calendar, let the next phase of the club football season begin.
The match-going public are now getting used to rosy cheeks and frost-bitten fingers on the terraces as winter sets in and we all know this is a pivotal period across all the divisions.
Here’s the best of this weekend’s action whether you’re donning the winter coat and woollies and going along to a game or staying snug and warm on the sofa watching the many hours of televised action.
Arsenal vs Manchester United, Barclays Premier League, Saturday 5.30pm
Live on Sky Sports 1/Highlights on Match of the Day, BBC One at 10.20pm
It wasn’t so long ago that this fixture - and this fixture alone - decided the destination of the Premier League title. They were titanic, tumultuous clashes that enthralled the world and had so much riding on them.
A few memorable examples: Marc Overmars racing clear of the United defence to slot the ball past Peter Schmeichel in 1998, Dwight Yorke smashing in a first-half hat-trick as United won 6-1 in 2001, Sylvain Wiltord’s late winner to clinch the Double for Arsenal in 2002 and Ruud van Nistelrooy’s run-in with Martin Keown in 2003.
