Here's what to look out for over the next seven days, with clubs in European quarter-final action and March's monthly awards winners announced on Friday, followed by another huge weekend of Premier League matches, including leaders Arsenal at home to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Monday

Mikel Arteta and Pep Guardiola will hold their press conferences a day before their teams play UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg ties against Bayern Munich and Real Madrid respectively.

Tuesday

Arsenal are at home to Bayern Munich, who have been a thorn in the Gunners’ side in knockout stages of this competition, winning each of their last-16 legs 5-1 back in 2016/17.

It is Arsenal’s first Champions League quarter-final since 2010.

Meanwhile, Manchester City travel to the Spanish capital to face a Real Madrid team in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the third season running. Real progressed when the two sides met in the semi-finals in 2021/22, but City got their revenge in the last four last season on their way to lifting the trophy for the first time.

Wednesday

Jurgen Klopp and David Moyes will hold press conferences ahead of UEFA Europa League matches for Liverpool and West Ham United, with Unai Emery speaking ahead of Aston Villa's UEFA Europa Conference League encounter on Thursday.

Thursday

Liverpool host Atalanta in the first leg of their quarter-final, and they will be keen to avoid a repeat of their last Anfield meeting with the Italian side - a 2-0 loss during the Champions League group stage in 2020/21.

West Ham travel to Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen and will aim to end the German side's remarkable 41-match unbeaten run in 2023/24, which has put them on the brink of a first Bundesliga title, as well as a place in the DFB Cup final.

In the Europa Conference League, Villa are at home to Lille for their quarter-final first leg.

Elsewhere, several managers will hold press conferences as they provide updates ahead of the weekend's Matchweek 33 Premier League fixtures.

Friday

The winners will be announced for the March Player of the Month, Manager of the Month, Goal of the Month, Save of the Month and Premier League 2 Player of the Month awards.

More managers will address the media ahead of the weekend's matches.

Saturday

The Fantasy Premier League deadline for Gameweek 33 is at 11:00 BST. 

There are six matches taking place, starting at 12:30 BST, with Newcastle United hosting Tottenham Hotspur and concluding at 17:30 BST, when Manchester United visit AFC Bournemouth.

Sunday

A huge day in the title race, starting at Anfield, where Liverpool face Crystal Palace at 14:00 BST, and finishing at Emirates Stadium, with Arsenal taking on Villa at 16:30 BST.
