Both Arsenal and Manchester City endured painful UEFA Champions League defeats at midweek, and both must shake off those disappointments if they are going to avoid falling any further back of current English Premier League leaders Chelsea and Manchester United.
The Citizens have a golden chance to close the gap on one or both of the EPL leaders when they play host to Swansea. The Swans are a dangerous team, but City will have the confidence of playing at home. For Arsenal, a win against last-place Queens Park Rangers is a must. The Gunners are sitting in ninth place at the moment, but are just three points from the top four.
If you are up early, you could catch Brad Guzan and Eric Lichaj against Norwich City in a vital match for the Villans chances of moving away from the relegation zone.
The final weekend of the MLS regular season will give us some important matches in the Eastern Conference, with D.C. United and the Chicago Fire playing for second place in the East, which the New York Red Bulls traveling to Pennsylvania to take on the Philadelphia Union in a match they need to win to avoid having to play in the Eastern Conference wild card round.
