With the leaders paying attention to other duties, this weekend could be crucial for the chasing pack in their quest to topple the Reds in the title race.

We are getting closer to a new round of games in the Premier League, but this time Liverpool will not be able to extend their lead at the top given their upcoming League Cup match against Chelsea. With that in mind, it will be up to Manchester City and Arsenal to put pressure on Klopp's men during their weekend away from their league duties.

This could also be a big week for Manchester United, who could level Tottenham's point tally since Postecoglou's men will not have a chance to play this weekend after their game against Chelsea was postponed.

Elsewhere in the league, the battle to escape relegation will give Everton a chance to get away from Luton Town, although the Toffees will not have an easy outing when they get to face Brighton. Burnley and Sheffield United will also get the chance to increase their points, although their chances to escape relegation seem to be getting slimmer with each passing week.

Here are the main things to keep in mind ahead of this weekend's matches.

Top games to watch 

Manchester United vs Fulham - The Red Devils face a crucial moment of the season, with most of the attention going to their rivals and with them working in the shadows, waiting for the time to rise. That time is now, and their match against Fulham will give them a chance to level one of the top contenders for European tournaments. A loss here would be devastating for Ten Hag's men, especially since Fulham's season has been rather disappointing, and with only one win in their last five matches, Manchester United need to rise to the challenge and claim what seem to be three sure points for their cause.

Bournemouth vs Manchester City - The current league champions wasted a big chance to leapfrog Liverpool last week, and now they will need to wait for a slip-up by Klopp's men to rise to the top. All Guardiola's men can do is narrow the gap between them and Liverpool to one point, and beating Bournemouth will be the only way to do so. Beating the cherries should not come hard for Manchester City, as they are unbeaten at Vitality Stadium in their last six games across all competitions, with the Cityzens scoring a whopping 21 goals.

Arsenal vs Newcastle - The Gunners welcome Newcastle in what could be an interesting Saturday clash for both sides. Arteta's men could leapfrog Manchester City if they fail to honor their status as favorites against Bournemouth, but if they cannot claim a win, Aston Villa could narrow the gap for third place. On the other hand, Newcastle are ten points behind Tottenham for the final spot in European tournaments, and given that Spurs will not be playing this week, it seems like a proper option for them to boost their chances of a top five finish.
