[THIS WEEK IN SOCCER: Jan. 27-Feb. 2]Both the U.S. men's and women's national teams open their 2014 seasons this week. The week, which begins with a mouth-watering Merseyside derby, also includes a party in downtown San Jose to mark theEarthquakes' 40th anniversary and the opening of a soccer art exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

TUESDAY, January 28
It's Luis Suarez against Tim Howard in the Merseyside derby as Liverpool hosts Everton in a mouth-watering midweek match at Anfield (live on NBCSN, 3 p.m. ET). No Merseyside team has finished in the top four of the English Premier League since Liverpool finished second in 2009-10, but the Reds (tied for fourth place) and Everton (one point behind in sixth) are both still in the hunt for a top four spot in the EPL.

WEDNESDAY, January 29
Mexico's 2014 U.S. tour begins with a game against South Korea at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, the first since Miguel Herrera was put in charge of El Tri on a full-time basis. Only 12 of 21 players Herrera called in were with El Tri for its playoff series against New Zealand in November. Two of the new players are California-born: Miguel Ponce and Isaac Brizuela.

THURSDAY, January 30
The San Jose Earthquakes, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary, will unveil a new logo and new uniforms in an outdoor presentation at San Pedro Square Market in downtown San Jose. The free event is open to the public.

FRIDAY, January 31
-- A close-to-full-strength team will take the field as the U.S. women's national teamopens the 2014 season against Canada at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas (live on FOX Sports 1, 9 p.m. ET). With the exceptions of Alex Morganand Tobin Heath, both recovering from injuries, the USA will have its full complement of regulars.

SATURDAY, February 1
-- The U.S. men's national team ends its winter camp with a game against South Korea (live on ESPN2, WatchESPN and UniMas at 5 p.m. ET). Following the team's camp in Sao Paulo, Jurgen Klinsmann picked 22 players for the game. A sellout is expected at StubHub Center for the game that should attract a large contingent of Korean fans.

-- Sporting Kansas City-Portland is the first MLS preseason game involving two league teams. The match takes place at North Stadium at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, MLS's Arizona preseason hub.
