After Premier League leaders Liverpool ground out a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, Manchester City will have to overcome managerless Huddersfield in order to keep pace.
Since the start of the year, Pep Guardiola’s outfit have been in quite staggering form , and after picking up a 2-1 win over the Reds on January 3 have won their three subsequent games, scoring 19 times in all.
Sunday’s opponents, meanwhile, prop up the standings and, 10 points from safety, look in grave danger of tumbling back into the Championship .
'Last Woman Starting' at Chevron Houston Marathon running for a good cause
Megan Saloom will be the last person to cross the starting line this year at the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Half Marathon.
Saloom, an elite runner, will be participating in the half marathon just months after having a baby.
She is such a dedicated runner that she ran until she was 34 weeks pregnant, then began running quickly after her baby boy was born.
"I started run-walking my fourth week after pregnancy," Saloom said. "I knew that running was really special to me, and I wanted that to continue in my life."
As the "Last Woman Starting," Saloom partners up with the Houston Marathon Foundation to raise money for a good cause.
Every person Saloom passes helps raise money for various charitable organizations.
"That's what I'll be thinking about while I'm running those last few miles," Saloom said. "When you're in pain and hurting, and you're trying to pass as many people as you can."

HOUSTON - An Ethiopian man is this year's winner of the half marathon in the Chevron Houston Marathon. Shura Kitata, 22, is the first person and man to cross the finish line in 1 hour and 4 seconds.
Houston's Chevron Marathon got underway Sunday morning and at least 20,000 runners participated.
Some came from other countries, and from all over the United States.
Even though it's cold, some runners still participated in shorts.
Others layered as the temperatures plummeted Saturday night.
KPRC2's Haley Hernandez and Eric Braate are taking part in this year's marathon.
Can you laugh about the government shutdown?
“I want $5 billion for my border wall, and in exchange I’ll extend DACA, and I’ll release the kids from cages so they can be free-range kids,” Baldwin’s Trump told fill-in host Steve Harvey (Kenan Thompson).
Trump has been the main source of political comedy for the past two years. But “SNL” can spoof Democrats with equal aplomb. As Pelosi, McKinnon was wild-eyed and enjoying her new power in needling Trump.
On “Weekend Update,” McKinnon was first rate as Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic presidential candidate who answered the complaint that she isn’t likable. “Am I likable? Prob not,” McKinnon’s Warren said. “Neither is a prostate exam. But you need one or you’ll die. This country is long overdue for a finger up its caboose.” She added, “Bend over, America, and let Mama Warren get to work.”
“Weekend Update” host Colin Jost ridiculed Trump’s latest proposal on the shutdown: “You give me $5.7 billion and I’ll give you back the Dreamers. Am I the only one who thinks that sounds like a hostage negotiation?”
Jost dismissed Trump’s protections are vague promises. “I trust the promises of Donald Trump about as much as I trust R. Kelly in a Claire’s boutique,” Jost added.
Jost ridiculed Greta Van Fleet, the rock band that was musical guest. “Sunday night will bring a Super Blood Wolf Moon, which is rare lunar eclipse and not as I assumed the name of the band that just performed on our show,” Jost said.
Jost also delivered the Florida joke that crops up in most episodes. The topic: a woman who stole watches and hid them in her vagina. “Officials became suspicious when the woman took a licking but kept on ticking,” Jost said.
Charming Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan was host of the first “SNL” of 2019. “SNL” spoofed her “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” by presenting “The Raunchiest Miss Rita” with Leslie Jones as a foul-mouthed comedian.
In her funniest sketch, a newscast spoof, Brosnahan was a doctor reading off the odd names of missing persons in a minor California earthquake.
Brosnahan helped promote the product Leave Me Alurn, an urn that women use to thwart annoying men. Brosnahan was a contestant on “Millennial Millions,” a game show — and surprisingly edgy skit — that spoofed millennials and baby boomers. Brosnahan was a guest on a talk show whose host (Jones) teaches viewers to treat their husbands like misbehaving dogs.
On “Weekend Update,” Pete Davidson worked with John Mulaney. They marveled that Clint Eastwood plays a 90-year-old drug mule in “The Mule.”
But Davidson touched on real events ever so briefly. “After observing John’s life, I publicly threatened suicide,” Davidson said. He added: “I’m sorry I shouldn’t make that joke. But it is funny.”
This “SNL” gave viewers a lot to discuss.
UFC On ESPN+ 1 Results: Winners, Highlights And Bonuses
Henry Cejudo shocked the world...again.
On Saturday night in the main event of the historic first UFC card on ESPN, the reigning UFC flyweight champion emphatically turned back the challenge from bantamweight kingpin TJ Dillashaw. In the very first round, Cejudo caught Dillashaw off balance and landed a series of unanswered punches that hurt the latter.
The referee rushed in to call a halt to the action and Cejudo, who came in as the underdog, had successfully defended his title and the honor of his division.
Dillashaw thought the stoppage was premature, but he did look hurt as he went down the last time.
The stoppage might have been a tad early, but there was no robbery here. Dillashaw looked shocked by Cejudo's hand speed and power, and before he got an opportunity to collect himself, he'd been overwhelmed. The stoppage victory capped an action-packed beginning for the UFC on ESPN. We saw eight finishes in the 13 fights and a number of outstanding performances. Conor McGregor had a few comments about the main event:
Unlucky T.J on your attempt at Champ Champ status.
Respect for your weight cut. I have been there and it is not easy.
Unlucky Henry on your attempt at fastest K.O in a UFC title fight.
I have been there, and I still am.
Congrats on the win.
The O.G Champ Champ.
