General: Five things to look out for this weekend

It's another bumper weekend of sport to look forward to, including the return of the Premier League, the Singapore Grand Prix and NFL action in London.

As well as that, racing fans have the l’Arc de Triomphe to look forward to and there should be a thrilling finale to golf’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Four of the top five teams in the league meet over the course of the weekend in two massive Premier League derby games.

League leaders Arsenal entertain their north London rivals Tottenham, who go into this weekend sat third in the table.

A win for the visitors will see them leapfrog their local rivals, but they are facing a Gunners team that have won all three of home league games this term.

Meanwhile, defending champions Manchester City are looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season when Manchester United visit the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola’s men currently have a five-point advantage over the team from the other side of the city, but United have won on three of their last five league visits to City.

Formula One: Verstappen could take the title in Singapore

WhatSingapore Grand Prix
WhereMarina Bay Circuit, Singapore
WhenFriday 30th September - Sunday 2nd October 2022
How to watchSky Sports F1
OddsMax Verstappen 2/5, Charles Leclerc 4/1, Carlos Sainz 11/1, Lewis Hamilton 12/1

Max Verstappen has a 116-point lead going into this Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix and the Dutchman could seal back-to-back Drivers’ titles if things go his way.

If the Red Bull ace wins Sunday’s race and second-placed Charles Leclerc finishes ninth or lower and Sergio Perez is outside the top three, then Verstappen will be crowned at Marina Bay.

That does seem an unlikely set of events especially when you consider Verstappen has not been victorious in Singapore, where he finished third last year.
