Premier League 2017-18: Matchday 5 schedule, TV, more

Some mammoth clashes headline this week's slate of matches.

Wayne Rooney is set to make his return to Old Trafford as a member of Everton as he faces off against Manchester United, the club he spent the past 14 years with.

In that time, he became one of the greatest goal scorers in league history, recording 200 goals. Only the legendary Alan Shearer has more with 260. 

While that normally would be enough to carry a footballing weekend, Arsenal head to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in a match that is already dire for the Gunners.

Entering Matchday 5, Arsenal sit at 11th in the league with six points, just four back of league leaders Manchester United (Chelsea are one back with nine). While it's early enough to make up any sort of lost ground, Arsenal won't want to fall too far back off the pace or manager Arsene Wenger's hot seat will only grow warmer despite a contract extension over the summer.
