The English Premier League sees six fixtures spread over four days this weekend, as the inaugural winter break sees eight clubs put their feet up in the aftermath of Storm Ciara.
Champions-elect Liverpool are among those returning from sunnier climes, but the eye is drawn most keenly to a tasty tussle on Monday night.
The stakes are high for Chelsea and Manchester United as they meet at Stamford Bridge to complete the weekend’s action.
Both multiple champions in the EPL era, the pair have started 2020 with a whimper having won just once apiece since the turn of the year.
Chelsea are clinging on in fourth but have gone three games without victory, albeit with draws against rivals Arsenal and high-flying Leicester in their last two outings.
Frank Lampard’s Blues are six points clear of United, who are scratching around in eighth.
A goalless Old Trafford draw with Wolves last time out at least prevented three defeats on the bounce, but the pressure is mounting on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s inconsistent charges.
Liverpool have the chance to continue their near-perfect record on Saturday when they go to bottom club Norwich.
Few would bet against Jurgen Klopp’s men making it 25 wins out of 26 at Carrow Road, with a muscular, 4-0 Anfield thumping of Southampton their most recent Premier League outing.
The Canaries picked up a point from a 0-0 stalemate at Newcastle, leaving them seven points adrift of safety going into the weekend.
Leicester will return to second in the EPL standings if they can seal three points in a Midlands derby under the Friday night lights at Molineux.
Ninth-placed Wolves provide the tricky opposition, with the Foxes having taken four points from six to recover from back-to-back defeats.
Tottenham are out to seal a third win on the spin when they go to Aston Villa as one of two Sunday fixtures.
Jose Mourinho’s side saw off reigning champions Manchester City two weeks ago, having also beaten Norwich at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to give their European qualification hopes a timely shot in the arm.
Spurs start the weekend in sixth, four points back from London rivals Chelsea in the final Champions League qualifying spot.
Villa’s ambitions are decidedly more modest, not least after a crucial loss at Bournemouth a fortnight ago left them hovering a place and a point above the drop zone.
The other Saturday match sees a mid-table clash between Southampton and Burnley.
A lunchtime kick off at St Mary’s Stadium pits Ralph Hasenhuttl’s resurgent Saints against Sean Dyche’s Clarets.
They start the weekend as two of four sides locked on 31 points in the middle of the pack.
The other two are Arsenal and Newcastle, who meet at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
A trying campaign for the Gunners continued with a fourth-straight draw at Burnley a fortnight ago.
Steve Bruce’s Toon Army, meanwhile, are unbeaten in four as they look to be steering clear of the choppy waters of the relegation zone once again.
