Well, here's a little something to whet the appetite: Roberto Mancini has once again affirmed his belief that Utd are title favourites, praising the 'inner strength' of his rivals.
What say you to that, Mancunians? @GoalUK is the place for all your thoughts!
Well, the Spurs boss has been just a little irked by the defender's remarks, and has insisted that his players are culpable for the team's slump.
Either way, it makes for troubling reading for the Spurs faithful, who must surely be desperate for a sign of unity as the season draws to a climax...
"OI! VEDRAN! NO!"
FACT: Out of seven, Newcastle have won as many games as Aston Villa have failed to get three points from - seven.
FACT: I learned these facts from Ten Key Stats ahead of the Premier League weekend. Check out all the important facts and figures ahead of the up-coming clashes - you might surprise yourself by what you could learn...*
*Except the stat about Wolves' recent points tally. Sadly, that does not make for surprise reading.
The Ivorian is determined to exorcise the ghosts of the 2008 final, when he was issued a red card for slapping Nemanja Vidic, by leading his Chelsea team to their maiden Champions League title.
Judging by his performances against Barca, he could be pivotal to Di Matteo's hopes of finally scratching the owner's biggest itch. What do you make of Drogba's importance to Chelsea this season? @GoalUK is where I wanna hear from y'all!
While he may be backing Bayern Munich to do his side a favour by stopping Chelsea from seizing the final Champions League spot for next season, the Magpies boss is determined to guarantee his side's return to Europe's elite - by setting his sights on a third-placed finish in the Premier League.
Now THAT would be a turn-up for them ol' books...
Messi was, of course, part of the indomitable youth team coached by Vilanova, so you'd be forgiven for thinking the two might work some magic for the senior side... time will tell...
Goal.com Spain supremo Martin Langer has compiled this brilliant profile of the man emerging from Guardiola's mighty shadow - and it seems there are few better equipped to the task.
Tito - El Rey de los Blaugranas?
And in case you were wondering just what makes Monday night's match such a toughie to call, then have a butcher's at Andrew Kennedy's most excellent appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses of the Premier League's top two.
That's right, it's Word on the Tweet time! Take a look at our lates haul from the goldmine of Twitter, including the Neville brothers' take on Guardiola's departure.
Well, Chelsea have taken the first step towards ensuring that football does all the talking, releasing a statement on their official website encouraging supporters to 'Make it a great derby' and report any incidents of abuse.
We'll have more on that later, so keep a weathered eye on the horizon...
Everton v Fulham looks set to be one of the more intruiging clashes this weekend - you can check out our preview here.
While we're on the subject of the Cottagers, manager Martin Jol has urged striker Pavel Pogrenyak to put pen-to-paper on a long-term deal at the club, amidst continued speculaion linking the big Russian elsewhere. A goal or two tomorrow would lift Fulham above the Toffees, and no doubt add to his growing list of admirers...
If and when Arsene Wenger follows Guardiola into the managerial sunset, would Thierry be the right man to replace him? Answers on a postcard @GoalUK...
Lose the beard first, Thierry. Then we'll talk.
First up, it seems that the curtain may be about to fall on the career of Owen Hargreaves, with reports suggesting Roberto Mancini will let the player leave at the end of the season after he made just one appearance in a City shirt following his highly-publicised arrival after leaving Man Utd last summer.
Meanwhile, on the subject of players who WILL be donning a blue shirt again - Mancini has admitted he may opt to recall Mario Balotelli for the Manchester derby on Monday night, despite previously saying he would never play for the club again.
Now where have we heard this before...
What do you think? Is he to blame for Tottenham's new-year capitualtion? Have your say @GoalUK.
This surely has nothing to do with the fact that a Chelsea win would deny Newcastle and Tottenham a Champions League berth for next season...
"Tito, I wish the best in this new opportunity that football has given to him. We were together when I was a kid...
... and he is not just a great person but also an excellent manager."
He might have Fab's backing, but how do you rate Vilanova's chances in the hottest seat in football? Keep your thoughts coming in @GoalUK.
"Although I only was with him for 1 year it felt like a lot more. For me Pep was my hero as a kid...
... and an inspiration as a manager. Thank you for the little time we spent, I will cherish it always."
Pfft. Nice try, Cesc, but I'm not one to be moved by the machinations of football. *dabs at his eyes with a Barcelona scarf*.
