As December gets underway, the Premier League continues apace after yet another weekend of shock results and high-scoring encounters.
With just six points separating eight of the top half, each round of games shakes up the league standings and piles pressure on individual managers and players.
Last week David Moyes was feeling the heat after dropped points at Cardiff. Now it's Brendan Rodgers' turn under the spotlight following Liverpool's miserable defeat at Hull.
The Christmas period will stretch squads to the breaking point, so who will emerge victorious on Tuesday and Wednesday to secure valuable points in the hunt for the title, European places or survival?

Game of the Round - Manchester United vs. Everton (Prediction 1-1)
Manchester United vs. Everton is always a tasty affair and, with David Moyes hosting his former charges at Old Trafford for the first time, it is somewhat of a surprise that the game was not selected as a televised fixture in the UK.
With Everton in fifth, two points ahead of their North-West rivals, the game takes on added intrigue. Roberto Martinez's side have lost just once this season and, this past weekend, were sensational in their demolition of an admittedly poor Stoke side.
There can be no doubting that the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Gerard Deulofeu, the latter of whom was brilliant on Saturday, will fancy a shot at United's occasionally creaky defence.
They will, though, come up against an in-form Wayne Rooney. The England striker has been winning points on his own for United at times this season and, with recent signs that Moyes' team are beginning to click, he will once again be central to their attacking threat at Old Trafford.
Everton have been strong defensively, but there are few sides in the Premier League that can boast United's attacking threat—shown in their 5-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.
A win would be huge for United, coming into the Christmas and New Year period in which they so often excel. Any points for Everton, meanwhile, would be yet another demonstration of their fortitude under Martinez.
An intriguing clash of styles awaits, with countless storylines surrounding the game to add to the suspense about the outcome.
While viewers in the UK may miss out on the live action, others from all around the planet will be tuning in to see Moyes take on Martinez and the side he excelled with for so many years.
