Liverpool vs Chelsea and Tottenham vs Manchester City: Open Thread

Today we have a treat of two matches where the results could have big consequences for the race for fourth place as well as, at a longshot, the race for the Premier League title.

With Arsenal getting four points from their last two matches, the Gunners are leapfrogged into third place in the table and are five points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur. With Gareth Bale expected to return to the Tottenham squad today, the Lilywhites have a lot of catch-up to do. Meanwhile, Manchester City will want to keep the pressure on Manchester United. City have an opportunity to close the gap between them and United to ten points, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s team playing Aston Villa tomorrow.

In the second match of the day, Rafa Benitez returns to his old stomping grounds as Chelsea take on Liverpool at Anfield. Just as Spurs want to close the gap with Arsenal, Chelsea have another opportunity to leapfrog over Arsenal in order to regain third place in the league. Liverpool, meanwhile, can close the gap with Everton above them from six points to three if the Reds can win today.
