Match of the weekend: United v Tottenham
For years, this has been a home banker, as Spurs have not performed against United, especially at Old Trafford. But this time, Tottenham are in red hot form and have a lot to play for. Their confidence is sky-high after wins against Arsenal and Chelsea, and they genuinely believe fourth place is in their grasp.
United might be back in the title race, but they have not convinced in recent weeks, and Harry Redknapp will feel this game is there for the taking. However, I think Harry needs to pick the pace and directness of Roman Pavlyuchenko ahead of the more static Peter Crouch, and really have a go.
I'm not sure about the rumours linking Gareth Bale with a move to United. Patrice Evra is firmly installed at left-back, and although Bale has performed superbly on the wing this season I'm not sure that will be the position he settles in to as his career goes on. These stories are the consequence of a great spell for the Welshman, but I think the rumourmongers might have got this one wrong.
Upset of the weekend: Burnley v Liverpool
People bandy the phrase 'must-win' game about all the time, but this really is one for Burnley. If they do not beat Liverpool, they could be as good as down by Sunday night.
Liverpool are in a strange phase of the season. They are focussed on picking up some silverware in the Europa League and Portsmouth's exclusion from Europe means they are almost certain to be in continental competition next season, while at the same time a top-four finish looks unlikely. Added to which, Rafa Benitez seems set to leave at the end of the season so will not be overly interested in building for next year.
None of this suggests a particularly energised performance from Liverpool. Having said all of that, they will still be favourites at Turf Moor - but Burnley might just trip them up as they fight for their lives.
Player to watch: Emmanuel Adebayor
We will be watching Adebayor's return to Arsenal with Manchester City, and probably not for football reasons. After his outrageous goal celebration against the Gunners earlier in the season, he will get an extremely hostile reception at the Emirates and it will be interesting to see how he deals with it.
He has got to go there and be respectful to Arsenal, the club that gave him so much. He repaid them by not trying for almost all of last season, then rubbing their noses in it after he left.
Since moving, the inconsistency has remained. City fans love players who have a go, and that is why they have taken to the likes of Carlos Tevez and Craig Bellamy. You never feel Adebayor's heart is in it. I hope he takes the criticism on the chin and concentrates on replying through his football, not through petulant gestures.
Under pressure: John Terry
The Chelsea captain is suspended this weekend but he certainly won't be relaxing. His form has been all over the place this season - even before the big scandal hit him - and his place in the England team is under genuine threat. He has always had a tendency to dive in, to get his arms in the wrong place and to have a go at the ref - but when his positioning is not right any faults are exaggerated.
With Alex and Branislav Ivanovic in the centre this weekend, a good performance from those two might make Carlo Ancelotti ask himself whether Terry is even worth a place in the Chelsea side.
He is not playing up to the standard of an England centre-back, but then few are. Rio Ferdinand has never hit his stride and continues to pick up injuries, while Matthew Upson just does not look good enough. Ledley King cannot play twice in a week and Phil Jagielka is lacking sharpness - the lack of viable alternatives is the only thing keeping Terry in the side.
Michael Dawson has been far and away the best English centre-back this season and deserves to go to the World Cup. He might lack international experience, but so did I when I went to Italia '90 and I was grateful to Bobby Robson for taking a chance on me.
