It’s a potentially defining weekend of the season for Colossal’s talents with intense pressures at the top and bottom of their respective leagues.
The highly anticipated contest between Liverpool and Manchester City is around the corner, with Alex and Raheem set to feature in Sunday’s televised Premier League showdown.
Meanwhile, Marvin will be eager to boost his Middlesbrough side’s morale with the Teesiders on thin ice in the Championship’s relegation zone.
Here is a full rundown across our talent’s upcoming matches in the next few days:
Game of the Week: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain vs Raheem Sterling
Fixture: Liverpool vs Manchester City
Time: Sunday, 4:30pm
TV: Sky Sports Main Event & Sky Sports Football
The top two teams in English football will write a new chapter in their rivalry on Sunday as Alex’s Liverpool and Raheem’s Manchester City go head-to-head at Anfield.
The England teammates come into the clash in tremendous form. Alex has scored four goals in four appearances for Liverpool whilst Raheem has netted 14 times in all competitions this season.
City edged Liverpool to the title last season by a single point. However, it’s Alex side who are ahead in the ascendancy in the current campaign – with a six-point cushion over Raheem’s team.
Cody Drameh & Martell Taylor-Crossdale
Opposition: Watford (H)
Time: Sunday, 12pm
Venue: Motspur Park
A third consecutive win with Fulham’s Development Squad is at stake for Cody and Martell as their side hosts Watford in the Premier League Cup.
The young Cottagers sit at the top of Group B after their victory against Everton back in October with Plymouth Argyle’s U23s making up the table in second.
With the international break on the horizon, Cody and Martell will be desperate to continue their team’s winning momentum with the pair likely to feature on Sunday.
Opposition: Scunthorpe (H)
Time: Saturday, 3pm
Venue: The People’s Pension Stadium
It’s been a tricky spell for Crawley Town, who have lost their last three matches, much to the disappointment of David, who has been a regular for the Red Devils this season.
However, a first-round FA Cup clash at home to Scunthorpe can provide a fresh start for David and his team who have fallen to 17th in League Two.
Saturday may also present 21-year-old David with his first appearance in English football’s historic knock-out tournament.
Opposition: Cardiff City (A)
Time: Sunday, 12pm
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium
TV: Sky Sports Main Event & Sky Sports Premier League
Bristol City will be vying for a victory across the Severn Bridge as Kasey travels to Cardiff on Sunday.
The 22-year-old missed out in the Robins’ 2-2 draw at Barnsley last week but could well return to action this weekend in the televised clash.
City are just inside the Championship play-off spots, sitting in sixth place, only five points behind league leaders West Brom.
Opposition: QPR (A)
Time: Saturday, 3pm
Venue: Loftus Road
The pressure on Marvin and his Middlesbrough side has reached boiling point after a 2-0 defeat away to Derby last Saturday saw the club remain in the bottom three of the Championship.
Marvin received plaudits for his performance as a makeshift left-back as Boro played with 10-men for roughly an hour of the contest at Pride Park.
The 28-year-old will be desperate to show more of his attacking qualities in the visit to an inform QPR side at Loftus Road.
Opposition: Paderborn (A)
Time: Saturday, 2:30pm
Venue: Benteler Arena
After a damaging 3-2 home loss to Schalke, Reece has the chance to respond against fellow Bundesliga strugglers Paderborn, who are currently bottom of the German top-flight.
Reece had been gaining more minutes for Augsburg but an injury niggle a fortnight ago meant the 20-year-old is having to work his way back in the starting line-up fray.
Augsburg sit in the relegation play-off spot, three points ahead of Saturday’s opponents as Reece will be hoping to come back into manager Martin Schmidt’s plans.
