Football News

Super Sunday clashes featuring Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are the highlight of this weekend's blockbuster Premier League fixtures, but across all 10 matches there is plenty to play for and pressure to deliver for all involved.

With some teams facing the prospect of just nine matches left to define their campaigns there is very little room for error, which means it's time for important players to stand up and be counted to secure Champions League qualification or simply survival.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is definitely near the top of that list, after choosing to go public with an emphatic denial of exit rumours on the eve of a must-win clash with Liverpool in terms of maintaining slim chances of a top-four finish.

Van Persie is far from alone though, as GMS profiles 10 players who are destined to generate column inches for either right or wrong come Monday morning as a result of this weekend's drama.

Click ahead to check out the 10 players who you should pay close attention to this weekend, based on either past-form, a reunion with former employers or a desperate need to start delivering the goods.
