Tune in at 11:00 AM ET as Manchester City takes on Liverpool. Rob Sturney will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
I'm Rob Sturney here with The Score's continuing coverage of the EPL. Today we have the champions Man City, desperate to start chipping away at that big Man United lead, hosting Liverpool, desperate to nudge their way up the table and into Europe.
Lineups: Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Nastasic, Lescott, Clichy; Milner, Garcia, Barry, Aguero, Silva; Dzeko
Liverpool: Reina, Enrique, Agger, Carragher, Johnson; Henderson, Lucas, Gerrard, Downing, Suarez; Sturridge
I've been around the block long enough to know that with three months remaining, that's a big gap!
Nastasic's knee holds up for the game. Milner is chosen over Nasri and Dzeko gets the start at the point of the spear for Mancini's men.
Luis Enrique is back for Rodgers' squad and puts Wisdom back on the bench.
Mancini still has Maicon, Kompany and Richards out and the Touré brothers in Europe.
Carragher is getting the preference over Skrtel and Coates - Rodgers must like his wisdom and experience, though he's a step slower, isn't he?
Tottenham did their part to hold onto fourth spot earlier; Gareth Bale's 67th minute marker was the determiner there.
Do you think it's the experience then, Eric?
Maicon is on the bench for Man City, by the way. So is Tevez, Pantilimon, Kolarov, Nasri, Sinclair, and Rodwell
Rodgers has Sterling, Skrtel, Wisdom, Jones, Allen, Shelvey and Borini at his disposal.
Both teams are in their traditional kits. Joe Hart wears his favoured all-green kit and Reina is clad in his standard yellow, I think.
In their last three EPL matches, Man City has beaten Arsenal and Fulham, before a disappointing draw with QPR. Liverpool has lost to Man United, triumphed over Norwich and drew with Arsenal on Wednesday.
Liverpool will attack from right to left in this half. Right to left. The Reds will kick us off as well.
1 min: Clichy throws in for the Citizens. OH! Silva forces Reina to turn it over the top!
2 min: Aguero turned on that throw in and started the move that ended with that shot. The subsequent corner came to nothing and Downing can't cross from the right on the counterattack.
3 min: Good action to begin. Hart will hoof it towards his counterpart. Clichy and Aguero can't quite get on the same page on the far touchline.
4 min: Sturridge is fouled and Liverpool takes the free kick at the halfway line, but it bounces to Hart.
Lots of action today in the sports world.
4 min: Zabaleta sends a ball for Milner and then the two overlap unsuccessfully. City is soon on the hunt again. Aguero tries to run through the defense and is eventually corralled by Johnson.
6 min: Man City have looked lively in the opening moments. They capture Reina's goal kick. Zabaleta makes a throw in before City reverses play.
7 min: Gerrard plays that pivot role for Liverpool. The Reds lose the ball on the far side of the pitch. Agger gives up a corner kick. He's sporting a Mohawk today.
8 min: It's taken short but Garcia can't wrap his brow around it and get it on net.
Glad to have you all aboard.
9 min: Reina clubs it downfield as "The Fields of Atherny" flares up briefly. The teams cancel each other out in the middle of the pitch.
10 min: Hart clouts the ball out of bounds as both teams feint at one another. Now Liverpool attempts to mount something from the far flank.
