Then at 11 a.m. ET Louis van Gaal takes his Manchester United side to Sunderland as they go in search of their first points of the PL campaign.
Here’s a quick primer on all three games, while the video above will also keep you in the loop.
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Queens Park Rangers, 8:30 a.m. ET live on NBCSN
Spurs won their opener against West Ham last week and new boss Mauricio Pochettino will look to make it two derby wins from two. Harry Redknapp is a former Spurs manager and helped take Tottenham to the Champions League during his time in charge at White Hart Lane. This season he is just trying to keep QPR up but has some talented players who could cause an upset, especially given Spurs’ long trip to Cyprus in Europa League actions on Thursday.
Hull City vs. Stoke City, 8:30 a.m. ET live on Premier League Extratime
The Tigers lost in the first leg of their Europa League playoff on Thursday and despite beating QPR in their opener, Hull look a little short of goals after losing Shane Long to Southampton and Robert Snodgrass to a long-term injury. They will be hoping Yannick Sagbo and Nikica Jelavic bring their shooting boots on Sunday. As for Stoke, U.S. international Geoff Cameron has traveled with the squad and could play some part on Sunday after being left out of the 18 last week. Inspirational attacker Bojan will hope to drive the Potters onto their first points of the season.
Sunderland vs. Manchester United, 11 a.m. ET live on NBCSN
Speaking of points, United have zero. Van Gaal’s side suffered a shock defeat to Swansea on the opening day at home and must now negotiate a tricky trip to the Stadium of Light to face Gus Poyet’s Sunderland. U.S. international Jozy Altidore will likely appear off the bench for the Black Cats after recovering from his World Cup injury, while United still have seven players out on the sidelines but Robin van Persie should return. Can the Red Devils kick-start their season in style at Sunderland?
