LONDON. — Manchester City face a stern test of their English Premier League football title credentials this weekend when the newly-installed leaders host Chelsea.

City’s midweek win at Everton lifted them above Liverpool on goal difference and increased the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s spluttering side.

After two successive damaging draws, Liverpool now have no margin for error when they take on Bournemouth at Anfield.

Pep Guardiola has challenged Manchester City to prove they are capable of holding off Liverpool by beating Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow.

Having knocked Liverpool off the top despite trailing by seven points just weeks ago, City have edged in front, albeit having played a game extra.

But, with Liverpool playing 24 hours earlier, Guardiola knows City must keep their foot on the gas against fourth-placed Chelsea.

“Now comes a big test, a big goal. Chelsea are an exceptional team who have had seven days to prepare,” Guardiola said.

“It really is a final for us this weekend. If we are able to take these points, it is a huge step forward.”

Fixtures (all 5pm unless stated)

Today: Fulham v Manchester United (2:30pm), Crystal Palace v West Ham, Huddersfield v Arsenal, Liverpool v Bournemouth, Southampton v Cardiff, Watford v Everton, Brighton v Burnley (7:30pm)

Tomorrow: Tottenham v Leicester (3:30pm), Manchester City v Chelsea (6pm).

Monday: Wolves v Newcastle (22:00).
