Liverpool vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Usually, a trip to the north-west would be a daunting one for Tottenham. But Spurs are a tougher nut to crack this season, while Klopp's Liverpool are wildly inconsistent.
The key for the Anfield boss is to pick exactly the right starting XI. It's a luxury he wasn't afforded in the recent 3-2 defeat at Southampton, a game where Roberto Firmino and midfield workhorses James Milner and Jordan Henderson were all unable to feature.
Brazilian attacking whizz Firmino was the big miss, as Liverpool struggled without his guile in forward areas. The former Hoffenheim star was nursing a hamstring problem, but he is now nearing a return, according to Klopp, per James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo.
Liverpool need Firmino's link play up front. His subtle movement and clever passing are key to the quick combinations Klopp wants his attackers to produce.
Speed of both thought and movement will be crucial if the Reds are going to trouble an excellent Tottenham defence.
A stout back five is protected by beefy holding midfielder Eric Dier. Truly an uncompromising player, the England international takes no prisoners in front of the back four.
It's brilliant striker Harry Kane who really fires Spurs' title bid, however. If he gets even a hint of a chance at Anfield, Klopp's team will soon be chasing a deficit.
But if Firmino and Daniel Sturridge are available in attack for the Reds, Liverpool will shock Spurs with goals of their own.
Leicester City vs. Southampton
The leaders have been winning regularly lately, but by narrow margins. In fact, the Foxes have won four of their last five games 1-0, per the club's official site.
That's a testament to Leicester's stubborn mentality at the back, but the Saints are one of the few teams who can claim to be almost as miserly as City.
Southampton have conceded just 32 times in 30 league games this season—just one more than Leicester—per the division's official site. Their stingy form owes a lot to the pragmatic approach of manager Ronald Koeman.
With towering goalkeeper Fraser Forster between the posts, along with plenty of power in the deep-lying areas of midfield, the Saints are a nightmare to break down. It's an approach that has seen the south-coast club claim some high-profile victims this season, including Arsenal and Manchester United.
Those results have improved Koeman's stature as a manger of some repute. B/R Insider Dean Jones recently revealed how Southampton are keen to convince the Dutchman to shun any moves to bigger clubs:

But for Koeman to justify the hype, he has to claim a few more unlikely wins. Frustrating Leicester's table toppers by keeping striker Jamie Vardy and winger Riyad Mahrez quiet would prove that the former Netherlands international merits the buzz.
Elsewhere, the battle for fourth place will take another twist after the recent Manchester derby. This time City will bounce back at Bournemouth, while United will stumble against an Everton side better suited to unleashing its ample attacking talent away from home.
But it's the title race that could really be shook up after this week. Whichever of Leicester or Spurs maintain their momentum will become the clear favourite.
