Match of the weekend: Liverpool v Everton
Kenny Dalglish could not have picked a worse time to make his return to the Liverpool dugout. An FA Cup trip to Old Trafford - which they were perhaps unfortunate to lose, despite not playing very well - was followed by a match at Bloomfield Road while most other teams were having a rest.
No disrespect to Blackpool, but completing their first league double over Liverpool in over 60 years is little short of an embarrassment for the Reds.
Now Everton have the chance to do the same, for the first time since 1984/85 - when they won the title.
If Liverpool don't get something from this game, then we have to seriously start talking about them being in a relegation battle.
Dalglish is the best workman Liverpool could have asked for at this time, but he has got some very bad tools to work with.
Too many of his players seem happy to enjoy being at the great Liverpool, but are not prepared to do what it takes to preserve that great name.
Kenny needs players who he can trust to get his beloved club out of this hole. At Goodison Park, we'll see just how many he has.
Upset of the weekend: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United
It still amazes me that United have come this far into the season unbeaten, especially given some of their performances away from home.
Tottenham haven't lost at home since August. They have a first-rate midfield which plays with purpose and scores plenty of goals. They can cause United some real problems.
Spurs' recent record against the other big sides will give them confidence that they get something from this game.
They haven't beaten United at White Hart Lane in a decade, but if they can get that monkey off their back then they and everyone else will be convinced that they are genuine title contenders.
Under pressure: Gerard Houllier (Birmingham City v Aston Villa)
There are too many men to name for this spot, but this week I will go for the Villa boss.
He has had a nightmare since making his return to England, and you have to wonder whether taking this job was a mistake both on his part and Villa's.
His policy of bringing through the club's youth players has not reaped the benefits he had hoped, and he has had personality clashes with several senior members of his squad.
No one could have predicted, even when Martin O'Neill left, that Villa would be in the bottom three at this stage. His reputation continues to improve the more his former club struggle - though let us not forget this is largely his squad Houllier has to deal with now.
Defeat on Sunday at a potential relegation rival - and their nearest and dearest neighbours to boot - would put them right in trouble, and Villa is a club that can hardly afford to go down.
Player to watch: Wayne Rooney (Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United)
Rooney has been passed fit, and needs to take his opportunity to prove himself all over again. Stop me if you've heard this one before!
We are now well into the second half of the season, and there is still little sign that he is getting back to his best form, despite what Alex Ferguson may claim.
At the moment he is spending more time drifting through games than he is playing an active part, and that can't continue forever. The problem is, the huge contract recently handed to him by the club means that Ferguson and the fans will potentially have to tolerate his lacklustre contributions longer than they would any other player.
He will be playing the last match of the weekend, and it is a big game that will be televised, so all eyes will be on him to pull himself out of his rut.
He may have got his first goal from open play in ages in his last game, but that doesn't hide the fact that a return of the Rooney of this time last season looks a long way off.
