In what is a rare treat, there is a full set of midweek Premier League fixtures this week, with huge amounts to play for at both ends of the table.
There are 10 top-flight games to look forward to on Tuesday and Wednesday – here’s a look at the best of the upcoming action.
Can Man City trigger a Chelsea collapse?
The 2-1 loss to Palace came from absolutely nowhere, and Spurs’ win does mean their lead has now been cut to seven points.
The Blues are still enormous favourites to lift the trophy, but Man City will feel they can go to Stamford Bridge and win on Wednesday.
The attacking quality they possess is frightening, and on paper, there’s not a huge amount between the two sides.
From a Liverpool perspective, a win for Chelsea is actually better – in order to enhance our top-four hopes. But for the title race, defeat for the leaders may suddenly make things a bit more interesting.
Given their ruthlessness this season, they may well prevail, but don’t rule out a City victory.
Spurs look to keep faint title challenge alive
Spurs just keep proving people wrong, with the north Londoners striding on without Harry Kane and continuing to win matches.
They look arguably the most complete team in the league on current form, and it would now be a huge shock if they failed to finish third, at worst.
Admittedly, their chances of catching Chelsea are very slim, but they should believe the gap could be cut to four or five points come Thursday morning, should City do them a favour.
The trip to Swansea is not easy, with Paul Clement’s side enjoying an excellent 2017, but Spurs should have enough quality to win.
Again, we will be hoping for dropped points for the visitors, but their new-found mental fortitude suggests that is wishful thinking.
The ‘Please Both Lose’ derby at Old Trafford
A draw is almost always the perfect result in this fixture, but if push came to shove, an away win would certainly benefit the Reds.
United look increasingly unconvincing as the season progresses, and a failure to beat Everton would be another almighty blow to their top-four chances.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns from suspension for Jose Mourinho’s side, which could spell trouble for the visitors’ defence, with the Swede’s influence missed greatly on Saturday.
Given how pathetic Everton are away to the top sides, it seems very hard to see them winning, but a point for them would do very nicely indeed.
Definition of a must-win game for Arsenal
Arsenal‘s 2-2 draw with City on Sunday had a strange feel to it, and while the performance was improved, it was more dropped points in front of a divided crowd.
The Gunners are now at a stage where they desperately need to go on a winning run, and Wednesday is the perfect place to start.
West Ham are the visitors to the Emirates, and while some may argue that Slaven Bilic’s side could get dragged into the relegation dogfight, they should have enough to avoid the drop.
They have no form whatsoever, though, with four defeats in a row and no win in six attempts, and a home win looks nailed on.
Should Arsenal fail to win this one, the scenes at the Emirates could make for ugly viewing. The players will make sure that doesn’t happen, however.
Another nail in Middlesbrough’s coffin?
Goals are scored and conceded at a premium, and if they happen to be on television, you may as well switch over to anything else instead.
Boro are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table, and having earned a solid point at Swansea on Sunday – you guessed it, it was 0-0 – they face an even bigger game this week.
Steve Agnew’s team face Hull at the KCOM Stadium, with both sides in the bottom three and Boro four points adrift, having played a game less.
Hull know that a win on Wednesday could leave their opponents doomed, as well as aiding their own survival chances, and they will fancy their chances. It is hard to see an away win.
