Liverpool FC can tighten their vice-like grip on the English Premier League title race with a win over their biggest rivals Wednesday. Fourth-place Chelsea, meanwhile, are on the verge of a dogfight to ensure Champions League qualification.
The reigning UEFA Champions League winners host Everton for the first time this season, with the 17th-place Toffees struggling for form and their manager firmly in the hot seat. The Reds have not lost to their cross-town rivals this century, and Jurgen Klopp's side doesn't look ready to end that streak anytime soon.
Liverpool have not lost through the first 14 matches of the Premier League season, so more dark times likely are in store for the blue side of the city.
In London, Blues' lead over fifth is down to five points following two straight losses, and a third -- paired with wins from the teams trailing them -- could whittle their advantage down to just two. Visiting Aston Villa are coming off of a draw at Old Trafford and haven't lost since Jack Grealish returned to the lineup.

No Premier League team has stood in the way of Liverpool (21-1-0; 64 points) this season. Can Wolverhampton Wanderers (8-10-5; 34 points) be the first?
Wolves lost 1-0 at Anfield on Dec. 29, but they've only lost twice at Molineux Stadium this season. The Reds picked up a win there in the league last season, yet they were knocked out of the FA Cup at the Molineux just over a year ago. Nuno Espirito Santo's side need only one point Wednesday to grab sole possession of fifth place, and ending Liverpool's undefeated season would leave Wolves just three points back of fourth.
The league-leading Reds can extend their unbeaten streak to an astounding 40 matches, and that would leave Liverpool just nine games clear of matching Arsenal's all-time Premier League unbeaten streak (49 games). They would become only the third English club to cross the 40-match plateau, joining Arsenal and Chelsea.

With the end of the winter transfer window looming, every Tottenham Hotspur (8-7-8; 31 points) match could be Christian Eriksen's last.
Spurs manager José Mourinho confirmed the Danish midfielder will be in the squad Wednesday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Norwich City (4-5-14; 17 points), but how much longer is anyone's guess. Eriksen has been linked to a move with Inter Milan, and the club's sporting director said Monday that the Italian giants have submitted a bid. Eriksen reportedly turned down a contract extension with Spurs earlier this season, and the clock is ticking on Tottenham's ability to get any kind of transfer fee for him, as his contract is set to run out this summer.
Norwich frustrated Tottenham in a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road on Dec. 28, twice taking the lead over Spurs. The Canaries got a big boost in their quest to avoid relegation Saturday, beating fellow cellar-dwellers Bournemouth at Carrow Road. They're still six points from safety, though, so Wednesday's match firmly is in must-win territory.
