Another weekend of Premier League action is upon us. Following Tottenham’s defeat to West Ham last night the title race looks as good as over. However there are still plenty of issues to be resolved at the top and bottom of the Premier League.
The lunchtime kick off sees Man City still to make sure of a Champions League spot, entertain a Crystal Palace side who’s recent form came to an abrupt end against Tottenham and was followed by a disappointing defeat to Burnley. At 3pm there are a number of fixtures with the pick being relegation threatened Hull entertaining Sunderland. The Tigers will be clear favourites after the Black Cats were confirmed for the drop last weekend. At 5.30pm another relegation battler Swansea entertain Everton. The toffees look to already be sunning themselves on a beach as they will definitely finish 7th and subsequently qualify for next season’s Europa League. Swansea meanwhile are 2 points from safety and in need of a welcome victory.
In Sunday’s fixtures, Liverpool will hope to cement a top 4 berth as they entertain Southampton at 1.30pm. At 4pm we have the pick of the weekends fixtures as Arsenal entertain Manchester United. A fixture with so much history sees both clubs well and truly in a scrap for a Champions League place. United may yet clinch a place by winning the Europa League, but will nevertheless go all out to claim the 3 points as we see another battle between foes Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger.
On Monday Chelsea have a great chance to go 7 points clear at the top and put themselves within 3 points of clinching the Premier League crown. Middlesbrough won’t make life easy for the blues as they are well and truly locked in a battle to avoid relegation. However, a Hull victory today would leave ‘Boro 9 points adrift with only 3 to play and The Tigers boasting a far superior goal difference.
