English Premier League schedule: Updated TV, streaming info for every 2021-22 EPL soccer match in USA

Will one of Liverpool or Chelsea emerge as title challenger to Manchester City? That will be the question on Sunday as the marquee matchup on Jan. 2 pits the two closest teams in pursuit of the defending champion.

Manchester City (1st, 53 points) used a second-half comeback and late Rodri winner to beat Arsenal (4th, 35 points) for its 11th straight victory to extend its lead to 11 points over second-place Chelsea. A draw between Chelsea (2nd, 42 points) and Liverpool (3rd, 41 points) would be the ideal scenario for City as it would keep the distance at double digits with the calendar year just getting started.

Anything but a victory would be a blow to Chelsea which is in turmoil after the release of a Romelu Lukaku interview in which he was critical of manager Thomas Tuchel. Meanwhile, it’s the last chance for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to help the Reds before departing for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

The Arsenal loss opened up the race for fourth place, with both West Ham (5th, 34 points) and Tottenham Hotspur (6th, 33 points) moving to within one and two points for the fourth and final Champions League berth. Manchester United (7th, 31 points) can join the trio of London clubs with a win against Wolves (8th, 25 points) on Monday.

At the bottom of the table, Newcastle (19th, 11 points) and Norwich City (20th, 10 points) are not playing due to COVID-19 postponements, but there’s a massive matchup between Leeds United (16th, 16 points) and Burnley (18th, 11 points) which is a must-win for Marcelo Bielsa’s men if they’re hoping for a slightly more relaxed start to their 2022.
