Liverpool, England: For once, the biggest supporters of Everton will be on the red half of Merseyside this weekend, with Liverpool's Premier League title hopes on the line. (Manchester City lead surge as EPL title race nears climax)
If Everton can extend its four-year winning run at home to Manchester City, the balance of power in this enthralling title race will swing back in favor of Liverpool.
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard noted on NBC that the "first time in a long time everyone will be wearing blue in the city."
Although Liverpool is top, despite losing to second-placed Chelsea on Sunday, City is in the box seat in third place due to its game in hand that could eradicate a three-point gap to the summit and put it ahead on a superior goal difference.
