The Premier League makes a return on Saturday with a number of fascinating contests ahead, including the basement battle between Arsenal and Norwich, which is live on talkSPORT 2, kick-off 3pm.

Our first commentary of the day sees Crystal Palace take on Tottenham at 12:30pm, live on talkSPORT. Palace are of course managed by former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira so the Selhurst Park clash has added spice to it.

But the world will have its eyes on Old Trafford at 3pm as Manchester United take on Newcastle in a match that should see Cristiano Ronaldo make his second debut for the Red Devils.

Ronaldo has re-joined Man United 12 years on from when he left them to join Real Madrid. He’s back again and this match could well be the beginning of something special for the 13-time Premier League winners this season.

Later on Saturday, attentions will turn across the pond for women’s singles final at the US Open.

There’s British interest in New York as teen sensation Emma Raducanu takes on Canadian Leylah Fernandez at around 9pm UK time.

Raducanu, 18, has already defied the odds in Flushing Meadows having become the first qualifier of the tournament to make it to the final in the Open era.

What’s more impressive is that Raducanu is yet to drop a set throughout her campaign – her most recent outing a 6-1 6-4 win over 17th seed Maria Sakkari. She’s now just one win away from making history.
