The English Premier League continues its sprint towards the finish line with a host of big guns in midweek action, Champions League qualification to fight for and the title race still alive.

Reigning champions Manchester City and sole challengers Liverpool both have away fixtures as they go hammer-and-tongs for top spot way ahead of the rest.

And it’s Reds legend Steven Gerrard who has the uncomfortable task of causing another slip in Jurgen Klopp’s EPL ambitions.

Gerrard’s Aston Villa host the Merseysiders on Tuesday night, with the visitors having fallen to three points adrift of City thanks to Saturday’s draw at Anfield.

City roared to victory at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, giving them the domestic edge after they tumbled out of the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid last week.

They go to Wolves on Wednesday night knowing another win will put the serious squeeze on their north west rivals.

Pep Guardiola takes his side to Molineux to face the Black Country side, who have had their own European qualification hopes all-but extinguished thanks to collecting just one point from their last possible 12.

The drama doesn’t end at the summit, either, with a trio of London heavyweights locked in combat just beneath.

And it’s a north London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal that takes centre stage on Thursday night, with the home side desperate for three points in their pursuit of fourth.

Spurs come into the contest four points behind their local rivals with three games to play.

The Gunners suddenly have even bigger fish to fry, too, with four timely victories on the spin putting them in prime position to pip stuttering Chelsea to a previously unthinkable third-placed finish.

Thomas Tuchel’s men are winless in three and will have to combat the notion they have run out of gas following the dramatic exit of Russian oligarch owner Roman Abramovich.

A tense evening in Yorkshire awaits the Blues on Wednesday, as they go to a Leeds side that dropped into the relegation zone thanks to defeat at Arsenal on Sunday.

Chief beneficiaries of that loss were Everton, whose own grim battle for redemption looks to be gaining steam at just the right time.

Frank Lampard’s side made it back-to-back wins at the weekend, hauling them out of the EPL drop zone above both the Elland Road club and Burnley as the struggle to avoid the Championship goes all the way to the wire.

Leicester were the Toffees’ victims at the King Power Stadium and they’re on home turf again on Wednesday night.

The Foxes set out to end a difficult campaign on some sort of high as they host Norwich, who have long since given up the ghost in their bid to beat the drop back to the second tier of English football.
