The race for the Premier League title is now set to really hot up as we enter the second half of the season.
Liverpool are, of course, leading the way with 20 matches having been played, though Manchester City have recovered from their poor spell to sit seven points off Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Thursday’s huge clash between the pair, which takes place at the Etihad Stadium, will play a key part in the race for silverware; a win for City and they are right back in it, but a Liverpool victory would send the Reds ten points clear in first.
The battle for the top four is also intense, with Tottenham and Chelsea sitting third and fourth respectively right now, but Arsenal and a resurgent Manchester United are looking to break into the Champions League qualification spots before the end of the campaign.
In the lower reaches of the table there are serious worries for Huddersfield and Burnley, but Fulham have started to come to life since Claudio Ranieri was appointed their manager.
