The Premier League title race looks set to take a twist with Champions Liverpool meeting Manchester City on Sunday. We preview all of this weekend’s top flight action:
Aston Villa v Arsenal
Both Aston Villa and Arsenal will look to recover from midweek defeats when the sides meet at Villa Park on Saturday, who will win the three points to revive their European qualification aspirations?
Burnley v Brighton
Burnley and Brighton have both found form recently to lift them away from the Premier League’s bottom three. Having not conceded for more than six hours, Brighton’s defensive form has helped them to wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in the last week alone.
Fulham v West Ham United
Another Premier League derby is in store at Craven Cottage this weekend, with in-form West Ham visiting Fulham. A win will put the Hammers back into the top four, but Fulham will be desperate to find a first win since November.
Manchester United v Everton
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side struck nine goals past Southampton in the week, but the grade of opponent increases with Everton visiting Old Trafford this time. With two games in hand on most clubs above them, Everton will feel they have a realistic chance of a top six finish at least.
Tottenham Hotspur v West Bromwich Albion
Three consecutive defeats have effectively derailed Spurs’ season, but Jose Mourinho will demand a response from his side this weekend. West Brom are now ten points adrift of safety and will put everything on the line in London on Sunday.
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Leicester City
Wolves have had a disappointing campaign compared to last season’s standards, but they did put Arsenal to the sword midweek. Leicester City found their first win in three games with a routine win at Fulham a couple of days ago.
Liverpool v Manchester City
Injury-hit Liverpool are having a horrid time of it lately, losing to Burnley and Brighton in the last two games at Anfield. In contrast, Manchester City have hit peak form and will be determined to inflict another home defeat on the champions.
Sheffield United v Chelsea
Sheffield United went 17 games without finding a Premier League win to open the season, but have since won three of their last five games. Thomas Tuchel is yet to lose as Chelsea manager, and the German coach will be confident of a third consecutive win here.
Leeds United v Crystal Palace
Only West Bromwich Albion have conceded more goals than Leeds United in the Premier League this season. However, Marcelo Bielsa’s side’s ability to outscore their opponents that sees them level with Crystal Palace in the comfort of mid-table.
