  1. No let-up by Blades - Wilder

    Sheffield United v Newcastle (Thu, 19:30 GMT)

    Sheffield United

    Sheffield United almost held Liverpool to a draw at the end of September, when a late Dean Henderson error gifted the Premier League leaders a 1-0 win.

    But remarkably, the Blades are unbeaten in seven games since, including wins over Arsenal and Burnley.

    And we've just heard from manager Chris Wilder, who said: "There's no foot off the gas, there's no relaxing from our point of view. We're just not that type of club and I'm not that type of manager."

    Dave: Come on Everton, form often goes out the window in such clashes. Here's hoping it does again......

  3. The most one-sided Merseyside derby in a generation?

    Liverpool v Everton (20:15 GMT)

    There is less than a mile between Goodison Park and Anfield, but the current gulf between Everton and Liverpool has arguably never been bigger during the Premier League era.

    The Reds are European champions, unbeaten league leaders and in the form of their Premier League life under manager Jurgen Klopp.

    By contrast, the Blues have gone 23 seasons without a trophy, are just above the relegation zone and reported to be on the verge of sacking manager Marco Silva.

    There was a time in the mid-1980s when the two monopolised English football; Howard Kendall, Peter Reid and Neville Southall in the blue corner, Joe Fagan, Alan Hansen and Kenny Dalglish in the red, going toe-to-toe for every domestic trophy.

    But over three decades of increasing Liverpool dominance later and with 16 league places, 26 points and a starkly different emotional outlook currently separating the sides, Wednesday's meeting could well be the most one-sided Merseyside derby in a generation.

    Wednesday night's games also feature Chelsea and West Ham.

    Their young midfielders Mason Mount and Declan Rice are close pals and the pair are the latest brave souls to take on Football Focus' Honesty Cards.

    Mount is a bit of a prankster and his video of scaring Rice while on holiday last summer went viral. It's a classic. Click above and you can see for yourself.

  8. Coyle returns to management...in India

    And former Burnley and Bolton boss Owen Coyle has been named the new manager of Indian Super League club Chennaiyin.

    The former striker's last managerial role ended at Ross County in March 2018, following a spell at Blackburn Rovers.

  9. Blues must win to save Silva's job?

    Liverpool v Everton (20:15 GMT)

  12. Wenger's pitchside VAR plea

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    There could be a row looming between Arsene Wenger and the Premier League.

    Premier League referee's chief Mike Riley has been loathe to encourage the use of pitchside monitors because he feels it wastes time. There has not been one instance of a pitchside monitor being used in England so far this season.

    Wenger feels that is a mistake. He says the on-field referees are best placed to make calls on decisions and they should be allowed to use the monitors.

    One to watch that. Wenger is effectively in charge of the implementation of rules in his new role as head of global football development at Fifa.

  14. What awaits Mourinho on Old Trafford return?

    Manchester United v Tottenham (19:30 GMT)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Jose Mourinho returns to the Old Trafford dugout on Wednesday almost a year after his last appearance, for a 4-1 win over Fulham on 8 December 2018 that proved to be his last victory as Manchester United manager.

    Mourinho travels north with a Tottenham side re-energised since the departure of Mauricio Pochettino on 19 November, with three wins from three games, which has helped take them sixth in the Premier League.

    England midfielder Dele Alli in particular appears to have been transformed by Mourinho's arrival.

    In contrast, his old club are at a low ebb. When he walks into the visiting dressing room he was responsible for reducing in size during his time at the club, Mourinho will be preparing to meet a United side that are 10th in the table having won just four league matches this season and heading for their worst league finish since 1990.

    So, who has benefited most from Mourinho's United exit? And what should Spurs fans be wary of if they look back at the Portuguese's time at Old Trafford?

    With Manchester United now 10th and seemingly struggling to earn Champions League qualification, has that put them out of the race to sign Jadon Sancho?

    The Red Devils have won six of the last 22 games but the Sun has reported on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying that their fans have not lost faith.

    Meanwhile, his predecessor Jose Mourinho has been quoting Nelson Mandela...

    Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has long been linked with Manchester United but the Mirror has reported that Liverpool are ready to make a move for the England international in January.

  17. The most one-sided Merseyside derby in a generation?

    But first there are six Premier League games on Wednesday, the pick being Jose Mourinho's return to Manchester United with new club Tottenham (19:30 GMT) and the Merseyside derby at Anfield (20:15).

    But is this the most one-sided Merseyside derby in a generation? That's the question our very own Phil Dawkes has posed given there are currently 16 league places and 26 points between Liverpool and Everton.
