Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you may have heard there’s a match taking place at Anfield on Sunday. It’s the biggest Premier League match of the season to date by a stretch. Liverpool are six clear and could extend their lead to nine points, or they could be pegged back to three if City record their first league win at Anfield since 3 May 2003, when the Reds were undone by two goals from one of their former players, Nicolas Anelka, who was partnered in attack by the one and only Robbie Fowler. And who was the manager? Mr Kevin Keegan.
Will Ederson be fit for Sunday, though? We may find out at 1.30pm, when I’ll bring you news from Pep Guardiola’s press conference. Maybe Kyle Walker is his No 1 now. He does like a ball-playing keeper doesn’t he? Jürgen Klopp will face the press at 12.30 GMT, which is when the Women’s Champions League draw will be taking place. I’ll bring you news of the quarter-final lineup and the eight teams will find out who they may face in the semi finals, too.
The eight teams in the pot for the Women’s Champions League draw are as follows:
Arsenal, Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Glasgow City, Lyon, PSG, Wolfsburg.
And here are the Premier League fixtures this weekend:
Norwich v Watford (8pm)
Is it too early to call tonight’s match a relegation six-pointer?
Chelsea v Crystal Palace (12.30pm)
Burnley v West Ham (3pm)
Newcastle v Bournemouth (3pm)
Southampton v Everton (3pm)
Spurs v Sheffield United (3pm)
Leicester v Arsenal (5.30pm)
Manchester United v Brighton (2pm)
Wolves v Aston Villa (2pm)
Liverpool v Manchester City (4.30pm)
If you’re wondering what to look out for in the matches above, this should help:
I’ll bring you any news from Germany on Der Klassiker, too. Managerless Bayern, in fourth, host second-placed Dortmund at 5.30pm GMT on Saturday. It’s a big one.
