Premier League back with a bang

The Premier League returns on Saturday after the international break - and what a weekend it promises to be.

A host of multi-million pound signings will make their debuts, including 30.75m Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov and shock Manchester City buy Robinho who cost a British record 32.5m.

Berbatov will make his Man Utd bow against Liverpool on Saturday, coming up against his old Spurs partner Robbie Keane, while Man City host Chelsea in a battle of the big spenders.

There is also the intrigue of a potential Newcastle protest against owner Mike Ashley after the exit of boss Kevin Keegan and whether England's hat-trick hero Theo Walcott will even start for Arsenal against Blackburn at Ewood Park.

BBC Sport checks out what the weekend has to offer.
