The Premier League's game of the week sees Liverpool up against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield—a match that could have a profound impact on the top four picture at the end of the year.
Brendan Rodgers' side are probably too far down to challenge, but Spurs could move to within two points of Manchester City with a win here (albeit with an extra game played) and seemingly put forward a strong case for their inclusion in the UEFA Champions League next season.
The North London club scored an impressive 2-1 win in their North London derby over Arsenal last week and then backed it up with an ultra-strong 3-0 win over Inter Milan in the Europa League. That will no doubt have given them a huge high, but you do wonder whether it will take something out of them here, with Anfield certainly no easy place to go to get a win.
Liverpool are always a proud team and will never simply roll over—especially not in Merseyside—so expect the likes of Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard to continue to press Tottenham's defense here, which has shown some moments of weakness on the road this year.
Liverpool have lost just twice at home since September, whilst Tottenham are undefeated in 2013. Their last loss, however, was in Merseyside back in November, 2012. Will the trip to Liverpool again prove to be the undoing of Andre Villas-Boas' side or are they simply on too much of a roll to be stopped?
