Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool—Sunday, 4:00 p.m. BST
A deceptively big game for both clubs.
Tottenham need to win to keep their top-four aspirations alive but also to prove to themselves and their fans that they are capable of mixing it with the best clubs.
Liverpool need a win to ensure that they end their away slump (which has seen them win just one of their past five away matches), and with Arsenal facing City, Brendan Rodgers will know that this week stands as one of their better chances to close the gap at the top of the table.
What will be most interesting is how Tottenham perform having played in the Europa League during the week.
Spurs are notoriously bad following a European match (with an abysmal record over the past few seasons in back-up matches) but their win during the week would have done their confidence and especially Roberto Soldado's confidence a world of good.
I think that'll be enough for them to grab the first goal at home, and while Luis Suarez's brilliance will likely hurt them at some point, I think they're good for a draw.
Liverpool's midfield is not strengthened or hindered in any real way by the loss of Steven Gerrard (who is out for four to six weeks per Sky Sports), but they will miss the psychological advantage that their inspirational leader provides.
That might just reduce the effectiveness of the Reds somewhat, and allow Andre Villas-Boas' side to chalk up a mentally huge point on the day.
Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Liverpool
