Liverpool could make their long-awaited return to the top of the English Premier League on this Soccer Sunday if the Reds avoid defeat at home to sixth-place Tottenham Hotspur.
With Chelsea falling to Crystal Palace and Manchester City drawing with fellow contenders Arsenal on Saturday, Liverpool will be the new league leaders today with a draw or victory against Spurs. Brendan Rodgers’ squad has had no problem scoring and getting the results they want at Anfield this season, scoring 44 goals in 15 matches. The Reds had no problem in their earlier meeting with Tottenham, a 5-0 victory which became Andre Villas-Boas’ last match in charge of the North London club, and they will be favorites to grab all three points again Sunday.
Elsewhere in the EPL, last-place Fulham will continue their quest to avoid relegation when fifth-place Everton visits Craven Cottage. Everton have two games in hand of fourth-place Arsenal in the race for a Champions League spot, and they will need to secure a victory to start cutting into their seven-point gap behind the Gunners.
Elsewhere, Napoli look to end first-place Juventus’ long unbeaten run in Serie A when the back-to-back defending champions visits Naples. In Liga MX action this evening, Chivas de Guadalajara and Club America are level in points heading into their massive Super Clasico showdown for league positioning.
