After the top three clubs in the English Premier League each recorded a win on Saturday, all eyes will be on fourth-place Liverpool on Sunday as they look to stay in the thick of the title race.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will welcome former team Swansea City, who are currently managed by former player Gerry Monk, to historic Anfield on Sunday. The Reds have not taken the field since last week’s 2-1 loss to Arsenal in FA Cup action, and they will now set their sights on a league win against a 12th-place Swansea side coming off a scoreless Europa League draw against Napoli.
In other EPL action on Sunday, Newcastle United will try to end a three-match losing streak — one that has seen opponents outscore Newcastle 10-0 — against American goalkeeper Brad Guzan and relegation-threatened Aston Villa. The weekend’s action wraps up at Norwich, where fifth-place Tottenham Hotspur will take on the Canaries.
Elsewhere, the Turin Derby takes center stage in Italy as first-place Juventus host Torino as the defending champions look to continue their long unbeaten streak in Serie A play. Bayern Munich travel to Hannover 96 in Bundesliga action, while Atletico Madrid will try to jump Barcelona and maintain pace with rivals Real Madrid with a win against Osasuna.
