Another huge weekend of Premier League action gets underway on Saturday, with two standout fixtures grabbing the attention. Liverpool and Chelsea clash at Anfield in Saturday’s early fixture, before a crucial game at the top of the standings between Manchester United and Arsenal takes place on Sunday.
Liverpool vs Chelsea
This promises to be an intriguing fixture between two sides that have flattered to deceive throughout the campaign. The Reds have lost each of their previous two, while Chelsea ended a three-game wait for a win against Palace. The Blues are unbeaten in three against the Reds, but the preference is for the hosts to get back on track this weekend.
Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest
Nottingham Forest will be looking to record a third straight win in the league on Saturday, while the Cherries will desperately be hoping to end a four-game losing run. Something has clicked at Forest over recent weeks, and we could see them piling the misery on Bournemouth this weekend.
Leicester vs Brighton
Leicester’s four-game losing run has seen them get sucked back into the relegation scrap. This weekend they host a Brighton side that has won three from four. It is a massive game for the Foxes at the King Power, and we could see them getting the win after failing to lose in the previous five home games that they have played against the Seagulls.
Southampton vs Aston Villa
Southampton remain at the foot of the standings despite picking up just a fourth win of the season last time out. Villa has been consistent throughout the campaign, but they may need to settle for a draw against a Saints side that are fighting for their lives.
West Ham vs Everton
This could be the biggest game of the weekend. David Moyes and Frank Lampard are both under intense pressure and neither side has picked up a victory in their previous six. It will be a low-scoring affair, but we could see the Hammers doing just about enough to get the win.
Crystal Palace vs Newcastle
Newcastle’s excellent run in the Premier League has continued, as they have picked up four wins from their previous six. This looks to be a sticky test for them on Saturday, but they have lost just once in their previous three visits to Selhurst Park.
Leeds vs Brentford
Brentford are enjoying a season to remember in the Premier League this term. They have won four of their previous five, and are without a loss in six. Leeds are yet to win in their previous five, but we could see them getting a point on Sunday.
Manchester City vs Wolves
Wolves finally moved out of the bottom three with a second win in four league games. However, this looks to be a daunting test against a City side that are on the comeback trail. It’s hard to see anything other than a comfortable City success.
Arsenal vs Manchester United
The huge game in the Premier League comes on Sunday, as Arsenal could stretch their advantage in the league standings, or United could get to within three points. United’s recent form is staggering, as they have picked up five straight wins. Meanwhile, Arsenal’s only league defeat was suffered against the Red Devils. It should be an entertaining game, but a draw could be a solid pick.
Fulham vs Tottenham
The sides sitting fifth and sixth in the standings will clash on Monday night. Fulham could potentially move above their London rivals with a fifth win in six. However, the preference is for Spurs to get a big victory on the road.
