The English Premier League whizzes towards the sharp end of the season with a bundle of midweek matches including heavyweights Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
It’s a case of saving the best until last if a top four challenge is your kind of thing, with Liverpool hosting Chelsea on Thursday night under the lights at Anfield.
Both are knocking on the door of the Champions League qualification places with the Reds having ended their losing run and the Blues ticking along nicely under new coach Thomas Tuchel.
He pits his wits against a man whose footsteps he has previously followed in Germany at both Mainz and Borussia Dortmund in Jurgen Klopp.
Manchester United headline Wednesday’s action in their increasingly futile attempt to close the gap at the top of the EPL table.
They go to Crystal Palace, with Pep Guardiola’s noisy neighbours Manchester City having the chance to extend an already alarming 12-point advantage on Tuesday when they play Wolves at the Etihad Stadium.
Injury-hit Leicester face a bruising evening up north at Turf Moor on Wednesday, with relegation candidates Burnley standing in their way.
Aston Villa will continue their unlikely European charge, meanwhile, when they go to a Sheffield United side glued to the foot of the table and four games without so much as a Premier League point.
Another pair of European hopefuls travel to relegation fodder on Thursday for two early evening kick offs.
Everton go to West Brom having drawn level on points with rivals Liverpool thanks to Monday night’s win over Southampton.
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham head across London to Fulham fresh from their 4-0 thrashing of Burnley at the weekend.
