The Premier League returns on Saturday, and with no more international breaks to punctuate the domestic campaign, the run-in will begin in earnest.
Week 32 starts with champions Manchester City travelling to relegation-threatened Fulham. Pep Guardiola's side, who trail leaders Liverpool by two points with a game in hand, can go back to the summit if they win at Craven Cottage.
The gameweek's other key fixture sees Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield. Should City triumph as expected on Saturday lunchtime, the Reds will be under pressure to respond against a high-class Spurs outfit.
Elsewhere, Burnley host Wolverhampton Wanderers, with the Clarets looking to pull away from the relegation zone, while Cardiff City host Chelsea in a match with major implications at both ends of the table.

Fulham vs. Manchester City
City have an ideal chance to move back to the summit of the Premier League on Saturday, and they will be expected to push Fulham closer to relegation.
Guardiola's side have excelled in 2019 and are in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple. Supporters will be desperate to see the team retain the English top-flight title, though, especially after such an absorbing battle with Liverpool throughout the course of the campaign.
As Goal relayed, not only are City in exceptional form, but they also have some crucial players returning to full fitness:
They may also be in possession of arguably the finest player in the Premier League. Raheem Sterling has been playing the best football of his career as of late, maintaining his exceptional form at club level with England during the recent international break:
Although Fulham have performed to a higher standard since Scott Parker took over as manager at the end of February, there are still big issues to resolve defensively. Against Liverpool, their decent performance was undone by lapses in concentration and errors from individuals.
On Saturday, it's difficult to see how they will be able to contain the attacking talent Guardiola has available.
Prediction: Fulham 0-3 Manchester City
Liverpool vs. Tottenham Hotspur
If City earn three points at Craven Cottage, Liverpool will have to respond against Tottenham on Sunday.
While the Reds have let a seven-point advantage slip away at the top of the table since January, it still looks difficult to get the better of them. At home, they have gone 36 Premier League games without losing.
Per The Sportsman, Mauricio Pochettino has not enjoyed the best record at Anfield since he took charge at Spurs in 2014, either:
Although Mohamed Salah is enduring a goalscoring drought for the Reds, Sadio Mane is enjoying his finest spell at the club.
From the left flank, he's posed a threat with his intelligent movement, physicality and interplay. In addition, he's found a composure in front of goal at a crucial point in the campaign:
Tottenham have won just once in their past five games, meaning they are underdogs for the encounter. Still, with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen to call on, they are capable of testing the top flight's best defence.
Expect a nervy afternoon at Anfield but for Liverpool to emerge victorious.
Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham
