On Sunday two massive games take place in the Premier League, you will not want to miss these bad boys.

With eight games taking place on Saturday, there’s already been plenty of goals, craziness and utter drama in the PL thus far… here’s hoping Sunday will be even better.

Remember, even if you can’t get to the TV to watch the games you can see them all live online via NBC Sports Live Extra.

Without further adieu, let’s crack on with a brief preview of both games.

Everton vs. Tottenham Hotspur, Watch live on CNBC at 8:30am ET

Both the teams have the chance to climb into second spot with a win, do they need anymore motivation than that? The Toffees have been terrific since Roberto Martinez took charge and look dangerous going forward and steady as a rock at the back. Romelu Lukau has scored four goals so far and looks a real bargain on loan from Chelsea. As for Spurs, manager Andre Villas-Boas hit out at fans for negative comments following his sides 1-0 win against Hull last weekend. Tottenham have won four games 1-0 and striker Roberto Soldado has scored PK winners in three of them, so you can see why Spurs fans are frustrated. They won’t more panache, cutting edge and spark going forward… will that get that at Goodison Park? What a game we have in store, as two teams pushing to make it into the top four this season clash in a high-tempo affair.

Cardiff City vs. Swansea City, Watch live on NBCSN at 11am ET

Well, this rivalry needs no introduction. The South Wales derby will be making it’s first-ever appearance in the Premier League on Sunday, it’s going to be boisterous, ferocious and a gruesome battle… and that’s just in the stands! All joking aside, ProSoccerTalk spent some time in both cities earlier this week and got the lowdown on the intense rivalry on and off the pitch. Cardiff have made a decent start to their first-ever season in the PL and with a win they can leapfrog over their successful neighbors to the West. As for the Swans,  they’re excelling in the Europa League and have had a tough fixture list to start. That said, the free-flowing attractive soccer they play is still a joy to watch and it’ll be very interesting to see it clash with Cardiff’s psychical approach and see who prevails amongst a mighty crescendo of noise, passion and rivalry at the Cardiff City Stadium.
