Liverpool’s 2013/2014 season hasn’t carried over so far into the current campaign, but the club can take a huge step forward on Saturday when they host Chelsea in this weekend’s biggest matchup.

The Reds have struggled to score both on the home front and in European competition, with Mario Balotelli failing so far to live up to the hype and the rest of the squad failing to replace Luis Suarez. Chelsea meanwhile have surged to the top of the English Premier League and are sitting comfortably, four points ahead of second-place Manchester City.

Following successive weeks of big matches in Spain (El Clasico) and Germany (Der Klassiker), the first La Classique of the season takes place on Sunday in France as Paris Saint-Germain host first-place Marseille. Legendary coach Marcelo Bielsa has guided Marseille to an impressive 9-2-2 record early this season, while PSG has struggled to win consistently with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the bench.

The Swedish star though should be in play this weekend, which should make for a great matchup.

Elsewhere, first-place Club America face second-place Toluca in Liga MX action and the MLS playoffs continue with D.C. United hosting the New York Red Bulls, New England Revolution facing the Columbus Crew, and the LA Galaxy taking on Real Salt Lake.

  1. Kudos to NBCSN for airing Southampton’s game instead of the Man U game at the same time slot. Much better to expose Americans to the higher quality soccer =)

  2. What about the listing for the Sunday 1pm cracker of a game at Wembley, pitting Fulham’s owner versus the soccer playing quarterback???!
