If the dream poster between Liverpool and Manchester City will draw all the light on Sunday, closing the 12th day of the Premier League, the latter is however rich in shocks on all floors.
The importance of this match between the Reds and their dolphins can not be exaggerated, separated by six points after 11 days.
A win in front of their home crowd at Anfield would not only give Liverpool nine points clear of its main rival, but would put Manchester City's second place in jeopardy, as Chelsea and Leicester, two points behind him, are on the lookout.
It is necessary to go back to 2002-2003 to find trace of a victory of City in the lair of the Reds, as much to say that the men of Pep Guardiola, private in addition to their goalkeeper Ederson, wounded in the Champions League Wednesday, does not will not really go away.
But a feat on their part would bring them back to three lengths and could dramatically change the dynamics of a season for the rather monotonous moment.
And it is not only in the race for the title that this 12th day could leave lasting traces.
Arsenal, 5th with 17 points, makes Saturday a most dangerous trip to Leicester, 3rd and already has 6 more.
A defeat, especially if it comes with a Chelsea win at Stamford Bridge in a London derby against Crystal Palace mid-day Saturday, would put the Gunners 9 points from the first four places that open the doors of the Champions League .
Hard to imagine Unai Emery's team, more and more contested, who has taken only 2 points over the last 3 days to resist the current form of Leicester: 15 points out of 18 taken lately, with only one defeat , and again, on a penalty in injury time against Liverpool.
Finally, even for the bottom of the table, this day will be worth the look.
It was to open Friday on a Norwich-Watford, the penultimate who receives the last, separated by two points for the moment. Woe to the potential losers.
The next day Everton, 17th with 11 points will try to make the hole on the red zone by moving to Southampton that is ahead of three lengths.
