The international break is officially over, which means it’s time to unfold that club shirt in the drawer and get back to business. 

Some clubs have particularly giant weekends ahead: Liverpool going toe-to-toe with Tottenham in a game that could define their season; Portsmouth and Sunderland scrapping it out in the EFL Trophy final at Wembley; Norwich visiting Middesbrough as they look to keep hold of top spot in the Championship. 

(Chris here knows the score.)
