[THIS WEEK IN SOCCER: Feb. 10-16] Arsenal must get up off the ground quickly as it hosts two huge matches this week at the Emirates: against Manchester United in the EPL on Wednesday and against Liverpool on Sunday in the FA Cup with a chance for revenge for its 5-1 humiliation at Anfield.

WEDNESDAY, February 12
-- Arsenal-Manchester United (live on NBCSN at 11:45 a.m. ET) is usually one of the major fixtures of the English Premier League season, but both teams are reeling. United's season-long malaise continued as it could only tie lowly Fulham, 2-2, at home on Sunday. Arsenal's 5-1 loss at Liverpool Saturday dropped it from first place and may have shattered the Gunners' confidence. “We were feeble,” Gunners manager Arsene Wenger. “Feeble in every important domain of playing at the highest level: concentration, strength in the challenge, and naivety."

-- The U.S. women will close out a rare winter homestand with its third game of the year against Russia at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta (live at 7:30 p.m. ET on ussoccer.com stream). The Americans won the first game against the Russians, 7-0, on Saturday in a game that could have ended with a win in double figures.

SATURDAY, February 15
The LA Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes will renew their Cali Clasico rivalry in the inaugural Central California Cup at Chukchansi Park in Fresno. Calif. (live on SJEarthquakes.com stream 10 pm ET). The game will be the first between MLS clubs at the downtown Fresno baseball stadium. (Click here for MLS preseason schedule.)

SUNDAY, February 16
Arsenal won't have to wait long for a chance for revenge against Liverpool. The Arsenal-Liverpool game (kickoff: 11 a..m. ET) is the marquee match of the round of 16 of the FA Cup.

    Gunners needed an extra body in the window, injuries piling up.
