A host of game will be live this weekend as the premier league approaches the climax. All ten games are set to be played this weekend. Crystal Palace open up the weekend in the Saturday early kickoff. The Gunners host the Red Devils on Sunday late kickoff to cap an eventful Sunday afternoon.
Tottenham play at 6 o’clock Kenyan time as they travel to Southampton. They will look to take all points home but a draw here looks likely. Spurs just won in Germany to progress to the Champions League quarters prior to holding Arsenal to an eventful 1-1 draw in the North London derby. Southampton have struggled as they lost recently to United. However, they have impressed, especially Nathan Redmond. I can see Southampton managing a draw or a win at home.
Manchester City play later on Saturday in the late kickoff. They will look to recover their killer instinct in front of goal against a Watford team that concedes notably five against Liverpool in recent times. With De Bruyne and Laporte doubtful, they still got enough quality and depth to fill in. A high scoring game this one will be with City taking all points. City’s lineup might be unpredictable as they are set to finish the job against Schalke in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Sunday will be the epitome of the weekend football. Liverpool start off as they play Burnley in the early kickoff. A Liverpool win is foreseeable here. Xhaqiri might start in an effort to rotate the squad ahead of their Wednesday clash at the Alianz Arena. Sadio Mane could continue his purple patch in front of goal.
Chelsea play at 6 O’clock Kenyan time. They host a resilient Wolves who won against them earlier in the season. Wolves have proven themselves worthy opponents and they may just play in Europe next season. However, Chelsea may just win here with goals involved from both teams. Eden Hazard may be Chelsea’s attacking outlet for majority of the game. Striker Raul Jimenez or Diogo Jota may feature for Wolves.
To seal the weekend is the clash of Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates. This is a tough one for both teams. Arsenal travel back from France with their tails tucked after a 3-1 loss embarrassment by Stade Rennais. Arsenal victimize themselves by placing themselves in these situation sometimes and you wonder what is wrong with this group of players. On the hand, United come after one of the most monumental nights in their history with a PSG comeback. Mind you Fred, McTominay and Andreas Pereira played in that midfield. All United’s first choice midfielders may feature with Matic and Hererra back. Martial too is confirmed to feature. Arsenal have everyone with the exception of the suspended Lucas Toreirra. To be honest, I see an Arsenal win at home despite a recent dip in form.
The race for top four gets tighter each game.
