After a vital 2-1 victory over Poland England's players return to Premiership and La Liga action this weekend.
After a vital 2-1 victory over Poland in their midweek World Cup qualifier, England's players return to Premiership and La Liga action in some intriguing matches this weekend.
Having displaced David James as England goalkeeper for the midweek win in Poland, Robinson now looks to help Tottenham stretch their four-match unbeaten start to the season against Norwich at White Hart Lane.
He comes up against former Spurs favourite Gary Doherty, who moved to Carrow Road last month and is forming an attacking partnership with Darren Huckerby for the Premiership new boys.
Neville is not as badly injured as was first feared when he hobbled out of the Poland match with a damaged knee.
There were worries in the Old Trafford camp that he could be sidelined long-term, but although he misses the visit to Bolton, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson expects Neville to be fit for the Champions League trip to Lyon on Wednesday.
The Chelsea central defender has been instrumental in his team's four wins out of four, during which they have conceded only one goal.
Tomorrow, he faces England squad-mate Darius Vassell and Juan Pablo Angel, the Colombian who makes his first start of the campaign because on-loan Carlton Cole cannot play against his parent club.
King and Gary Doherty were keen rivals for a centre-back position at Tottenham during David Pleat's time in charge.
Now, they prepare to be on opposite sides on the action, with King's duel against Doherty, now in an attacking role for Norwich, promising to be a feature of Sunday's match between the teams at White Hart Lane.
The England left-back returns to an Arsenal side whose record unbeaten League run stands at 44 going into their match against Fulham.
Arsene Wenger's side have chalked up 16 goals in four games in 2004-05, but Fulham twice ran them close last season and Cole and his colleagues will have to be on their toes at Craven Cottage.
The England captain flew back to Spain to prepare for Real Madrid's first home game in La Liga against newly-promoted Numancia.
Beckham knows the team will be under pressure from the fans to get off to a winning start after a trophy-less season - and finishing fourth in the league.
Now an influential player for his country as well as his club, Lampard scored 15 goals in all competitions for Chelsea last season, having featured in every Premiership, F.A. Cup and Champions League game.
He was off the mark in the new campaign with a penalty in the 2-1 win over Southampton and will be a key man tomorrow as Chelsea bid to win their fifth successive match at Villa Park, when they lost 3-2 in April
Gerrard makes no bones of the fact that England must start doing better at World Cup and European Championship level - and the plain-speaking midfielder has similar views on under-achieving Liverpool.
Gerrard is hoping that the arrival at Anfield of manager Rafael Benitez and expensive new players like Djibril Cisse and Xabi Alonso will have the desired effect. A home game against promoted West Brom offers the perfect opportunity for a confidence-boosting win.
Having played on the left side of midfield for England in Austria and Poland, Bridge will revert to his left-back position for Chelsea's testing fixture against Aston Villa.
That will not trouble this calm and composed player, who has made great strides for both club and country in the past 12 months.
Everything seems to be happening for Defoe, who followed his impressive early season form at Tottenham with a first England goal in the midweek victory over Poland.
The 21-year-old took it with a calm assurance which bodes well for his international future and he must be a good bet to add to his three goals in four Premiership goals against Norwich.
Owen is set to make his debut in The Bernabeu after a £10m summer move from Liverpool to Real Madrid.
The striker featured last week when he replaced Raul in the first half and set up Ronaldo for the only goal in their 1-0 win at Mallorca.
