    look at the questions ahead of Sundays fixtures... Watch a preview of Sundays
    Premier League fixtures including Arsenal v Tottenham, Liverpool v Watford and
    Swansea v Manchester United. Can Spurs discover their scoring touch in the north
    London derby? (Arsenal v Tottenham - Sunday, 12pm)While questions over Arsenals
    longevity and ability to go the distance will remain whether they win, lose or
    draw this weekend, Spurs need to silence some of the doubts surrounding
    them.These have intensified in recent weeks after three successive league draws,
    in which two goals have been scored in the absence of the injured Harry Kane.
    Sunderland 1-4 Arsenal Vincent Janssen might have got his first league goal
    against Leicester last time out, but that was from the penalty spot, and
    collectively Spurs are not scoring enough.Heung-Min Sons goals have dried up
    after four in three league matches, Erik Lamela has not scored in the league
    since opening day, and Christian Eriksen is yet to find the net. The rise of Son
    We chart the journey of Heung-Min Son from South Korea to Tottenham via
    Germany... With Mauricio Pochettino saying Kane is a maybe to face Arsenal on
    Sunday, Spurs might again have to look for goals elsewhere. If they cant find
    them, they could find themselves six points off the Premier League pace-setters
    by the end of the weekend.How does Mike Phelan stop the slide? (Hull v
    Southampton - Sunday, 2.15pm)Short on fit players, short on positive results,
    shorter on the coaching staff after Gary Walshs departure to Aston Villa -
    things arent exactly looking bright for Hull right now. Watford 1-0 Hull They
    have lost six straight Premier League games and another defeat this Sunday would
    put the club in their worst run of form at any level since 1980.In terms of
    scorelines they have shown marginal improvement in recent weeks, following their
    6-1 thrashing at Bournemouth with a 2-0 defeat to Stoke and then a 1-0 loss to
    Watford.Defender Harry Maguire said this week that its about momentum and Hull
    need to get something on the board. Southampton have generally performed well
    under Claude Puel so far this season If Mike Phelan is setting objectives, a
    clean sheet might be near the top. Hull have kept just one this season, but if
    they can shut out Southampton it would provide something to build on ahead of a
    potentially crucial run of fixtures that sees them face Sunderland, West Brom,
    Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace and West Ham.Will the Reds defence make their
    case? (Liverpool v Watford- Sunday, 12.15pm live on Nissan Super Sunday) Crystal
    Palace 2-4 Liverpool Described on Monday Night Football as the real deal by
    Jamie Carragher, Liverpool are on a roll.But even with five wins and a draw from
    their last six matches, there are still question marks over the defence, which
    has let in more goals than any other side in the top six. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky
    Sports for just £6.99. No contract. They have also kept just one clean sheet
    this season, and hardly covered themselves in glory in last weekends win at
    Crystal Palace. Liverpool vs Watford November 6, 2016, 1:30pm Live on Get Sky
    Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Goalkeeper Loris Karius has been trying to
    familiarise himself with the physical side of the game by training with rugby
    pads, but what can the defence do?Jurgen Klopp has vowed to sort it out, and the
    return of James Milner should be a boost. If Klopp can fix the issues at the
    back then Liverpool really could be rolling.Could this be a confidence-boosting
    fixture, but for who? (Swansea v Man Utd - Sunday, 3pm) Manchester United
    defender Marcos Rojo believes the club are heading in the right direction after
    keeping back-to-back clean sheets What happened to the honeymoon period? Jose
    Mourinhos was short and sweet at Manchester United; Bob Bradleys has been
    non-existent at Swansea.The American has taken charge of three games, picking up
    just one point in a home draw with Watford. After defeat at Stoke on Monday,
    Bradley admitted confidence is low and the only way to improve a concerning
    situation is to start getting results. Le Tiss Premier League verdict Matt Le
    Tissier gives his Premier League review, picking his stars, champions &
    bottom three United are not in a totally dissimilar position. Their form as of
    late has been stuttering, with two wins, three draws and a loss in their last
    six matches. Zlatan Ibrahimovic appears to epitomise their problems with his
    crisis of confidence, having somehow failed to end his scoring drought against
    Burnley and now without a goal in nine hours.If confidence is key, who can seize
    the initiative on Sunday?Will the Foxes continue their strong home form?

    1-1 Leicester Has the Champions League had a negative impact on Leicester this
    season? The results dont seem to suggest so, with three wins from three matches
    immediately after playing in Europe.Perhaps crucially, on each occasion after a
    European exertion they have been playing at home, as they are this weekend.

    Sports pass Their struggles on the road have been well documented - one point
    from five games, and that coming against Spurs last Saturday - but at the King
    Power they have been a different animal.Their form at home is among the best in
    the league, with three wins, two draws, eight goals scored and just two
    conceded. Another win this weekend could lift them into the top half of the
    Premier League for the first time for over a month. Also See: Le Tiss Premier

    . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the
    amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that
    so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their
    assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.

    . Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the
    24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he
    ultimately lands on a move. FRISCO, Texas -- Dak Prescott grew up rooting for
    the Dallas Cowboys in Louisiana. He suddenly finds himself in line to start
    their opener as a rookie quarterback with Tony Romo sidelined by yet another
    back injury.Receiver Brice Butler believes the fourth-round pick out of
    Mississippi State pictured this years ago.He ends up getting drafted here. Now
    hes the starting quarterback, Butler said Sunday. I dont know if he thought it
    was going to happen this soon. But Im pretty sure when he got here, he was like,
    Im going to be the future of this franchise.Hes in a situation now where hes the
    starter and basically that comment I just said is going to depend on how he
    plays. And I think hes ready for it.The 23-year-old Prescott was the No. 3
    quarterback for the Cowboys going into training camp before backup Kellen Moore
    broke his right ankle in practice.Prescott was impressive enough in the first
    two preseason games to make owner and general manager Jerry Jones comfortable
    with him as Romos backup, rather than bringing in a veteran.After Romo broke a
    bone in his back on the third play of the third preseason game at Seattle, Jones
    is ready to roll with Prescott. Assuming the Cowboys do grab a veteran, it
    figures to be a backup for now. The current No. 2 is Jameill Showers, a
    second-year player who hasnt appeared in a regular-season game.I dont know if
    this stuff will ever hit me, said Prescott, set to be the first rookie
    quarterback to start the opener for Dallas since Quincy Carter 15 years ago. I
    feel like I belong here. This is where Im supposed to be. I just come in every
    day with the right attitude.The Cowboys havent said how long Romo will be out
    following his fourth back injury in less than four years, but its likely to be
    the opener at the very least. Jones and his son, executive vice president of
    personnel Stephen Jones, have said they are comfortable giving Prescott a shot
    as the starter.The next question is whether Prescott plays in the preseason
    finale against Houston on Thursday night. Starters generally sit out that game
    and turn their focus to the regular season. The Cowboys open Sept. 11 at home
    against the New YYork Giants.ddddddddddddCoach Jason Garrett wouldnt say whether
    Prescott will be held out against the Texans. Dallas has just the two
    quarterbacks on the roster, not counting Romo.I dont know if a number of snaps
    makes a difference if Im ready or not, said Prescott, who is 39 of 50 passing
    for 454 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions in three preseason
    games. Im going to be ready. Practice is going to get me ready. We are going to
    game plan the right way. And Im going to be focused.Dallas went 1-11 without
    Romo last season when he was twice sidelined by a broken left collarbone, and
    the Cowboys slumped to 4-12 a year after winning the NFC East at 12-4. Because
    of that, Jerry Jones opened training camp by declaring Dallas would no longer
    pin its hopes on star players returning from injuries.The Cowboys might not have
    envisioned this severe a test this soon.The mentality is different, said
    receiver Dez Bryant, who missed seven games last season because of a broken
    foot. It aint even just with the backup quarterback. Its like with all the
    players. Its just different strategy, believing in one another. Like I said,
    keeping each other lifted and building real chemistry.Prescott, who also has two
    rushing touchdowns, led a scoring drive in his first full possession against the
    Seahawks after Romos injury. He took the Cowboys to a field goal in the final
    two minutes of the first half. He has looked comfortable running the offense and
    made strong throws down the field.The eighth quarterback taken in the draft with
    the 135th overall pick, Prescott is likely to be the first of those to start in
    the regular season.How do you create a name for yourself without stepping up on
    those situations and becoming that guy? cornerback Brandon Carr asked. Dak has
    been in the fire early and often. He has done well. Its going to take all guys
    to help each other out.---Online:AP NFL websites: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at ' ' '
