Gameweek 20 in the Premier League promises to be one of the most exciting of the campaign so far, with both the Manchester Derby and North London Derby set to take place on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. But, which teams will pick up vital wins on gameweek 20 in England?
Aston Villa vs Leeds
The upcoming round of fixtures gets underway on Friday, as Aston Villa host Leeds. Villa will be looking to bounce back from an embarrassing cup exit at the hands of Stevenage, while Leeds will be looking to end a run of four with a win. The hosts are unbeaten in their previous four against the Whites, and have kept three clean sheets during that run.
Manchester United vs Manchester City
The huge game in the Premier League this weekend comes from Old Trafford, as Manchester United look for a fifth straight win to move within a point of City. However, the visitors could move to within two of Arsenal at the top of the standings. Goals have been in high demand when these sides meet, but draws have been uncommon with just one in the previous 14. However, a draw could be the best play this weekend.
Brighton vs Liverpool
Brighton come into this fixture aware that a victory could lift them above Liverpool. The Reds were beaten in their previous game on the road, but could move within four of the Champions League spots. Liverpool were poor at Anfield against Wolves last week in the cup, but we expect them to get back on track on Saturday.
Everton vs Southampton
A huge six-pointer will take place at Goodison Park, as Everton and Southampton come into this fixture in the relegation spots. Neither team has won in their previous six in the Premier League, and a low-scoring encounter is likely. However, the slight preference is for Everton, as a noisy home support could get them over the line.
Nottingham Forest vs Leicester City
Another huge game at the bottom of the Premier League standings this weekend is the East Midlands Derby. Forest has gone two without defeat in the league, and their home form looks to be integral to their chances of survival. We could see Steve Cooper’s team picking up a massive three points against the Foxes this weekend.
Wolves vs West Ham
A huge six-pointer with implications on the bottom three takes place in the Midlands, as Wolves look to end a two-game wait for a win. They were held by Aston Villa in their previous game. West Ham are the visitors, as they look to end a six-game winless run. A draw could be a likely outcome.
Brentford vs Bournemouth
Brentford has been excellent at home throughout the season this term, and this looks like another winnable game to move them closer to the European spots. Bournemouth could end the day in the bottom three after losing their previous three.
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace
The pressure is mounting on Graham Potter, but this could be a week to change their fortunes. A Champions League finish remains incredibly unlikely, but the Eagles don’t look to have the firepower to inflict more misery on the Blues at Stamford Bridge.
Newcastle vs Fulham
This looks set to be an entertaining game, as the Magpies look to end a two-game drawing run. Fulham have won their previous three, and they could end the weekend as high as sixth. However, we could see Newcastle battling to maximum points.
Tottenham vs Arsenal
The North London Derby rounds off a thrilling weekend in the Premier League. Spurs appear to have turned a corner recently, and they will be looking to kick on following a 4-0 win against Crystal Palace. Arsenal were held in their previous game, but we could see the Gunners indicating their title credentials with a famous win against their rivals this weekend.
