Here's what to look out for this week with several Premier League matches, Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League, the draw for the round of 16 in the UEFA Europa League and Europa Conference League and the EFL Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Monday Matchweek 25 continues with a key encounter as Everton welcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park at 20:00 GMT aiming to move out of the bottom three with a first Premier League win in eight matches. Sean Dyche's Toffees, who are looking to complete their first league double over Palace since 2004/05, face an Eagles side that has lost their last three away Premier League matches during which they have conceded 11 goals. It remains unclear, however, if Palace manager Roy Hodgson will be able to attend the match after he was taken ill during a training session on Thursday.

Elsewhere, Pep Guardiola and Thomas Frank will provide the latest team news updates in their press conferences ahead of Manchester City's home match with Brentford on Tuesday.

Tuesday Man City could leapfrog Arsenal and move up to second in the table with victory against the Bees (19:30 GMT). A Phil Foden hat-trick secured a 3-1 win for City in the reverse fixture two weeks ago, and success at the Etihad Stadium would take Guardiola's side to 56 points, one point off leaders Liverpool. Meanwhile Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and his Luton Town counterpart Rob Edwards will speak to the media, as will Mikel Arteta ahead of Arsenal's last-16 UEFA Champions League match against Porto.

Wednesday The final Premier League fixture of Matchweek 25 takes place, as Liverpool host Luton (19:30 GMT) looking to extend their lead at the top, while the Hatters will be hoping to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation by recording a first-ever win at Anfield. Arsenal return to Champions League action aiming to win at Porto (20:00 GMT) for the first time.

Thursday Several managers will hold press conferences as they provide updates ahead of the weekend's Matchweek 26 Premier League fixtures.

Friday Brighton & Hove Albion, Liverpool, West Ham United will discover their opponents for the round of 16 in the Europa League as will Aston Villa in the Europa Conference League. The draw for the Europa League will take place at 11:00 GMT, with the Europa Conference League draw going ahead one hour later. The remaining Premier League managers will hold their press conferences, providing the latest team news. We will be running a live blog where you can follow all the updates as they happen.

Saturday The Fantasy Premier League deadline for Blank Gameweek 26 is at 13:30 GMT, with FPL managers needing to make their transfers and confirm their line-ups before then. There are six matches taking place, with Villa v Nottingham Forest one of four 15:00 GMT kick-offs. The day's action concludes with a mouthwatering 20:00 GMT encounter as title-chasing Arsenal host Newcastle United.

Sunday The action continues with one Premier League fixture at 13:30 GMT, when Gary O'Neil's Wolverhampton Wanderers host Sheffield United at Molineux. Five-time EFL Cup winners Chelsea face record-holders Liverpool in the 2023/24 final at Wembley as Mauricio Pochettino aims to win a trophy in his debut season with the Blues.
