With most of the top six involved in European action in midweek, it’s back to the Premier League over the weekend. Manchester City now enjoy a 10-point lead over Manchester United and Leicester City, after another impressive win against Everton. Meanwhile, three defeats in a row has seen reigning champions Liverpool, drop down to sixth place.
Liverpool v Everton
There is an intriguing Merseyside derby at Anfield on Saturday evening, as Liverpool welcome neighbours, Everton.
Both sides are without a league win from their last three games and are losing ground on the top four. The Reds have lost three on the bounce but did win 2-0 against RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday and will hope to build on that result against the Toffees.
Everton will attempt to win at Anfield for the first time in over 20 years and will see this as a great opportunity to do so. However, they are still likely to be without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and always struggle for goals when he’s not in the team.
West Ham v Tottenham
West Ham welcome Tottenham to the Olympic Stadium on Sunday lunchtime as they look to get back in to the top four.
The Hammers have been in excellent form recently, losing just one of their last ten games and winning six of them. They sit second in the form table after their recent 3-0 win against Sheffield United and will be confident of beating a struggling Spurs.
Jose Mourinho’s men have lost four of their last five games and were soundly beaten 3-0 by Manchester City when last in league action. That run of defeats has seen them drop down to ninth place, but they did enjoy a 4-1 win at Wolfsberger in the Europa League in midweek, with Gareth Bale amongst the scorers. Spurs will be desperate to build on that and get back to winning ways in the EPL.
Aston Villa v Leicester City
Two of the more entertaining sides in the Premier League meet on Sunday afternoon in a Midlands derby as Aston Villa host Leicester City.
Villa are enjoying a much better season this term and sit comfortably in eighth place with one eye on a top six finish. In Jack Grealish, they have one of the most talked about players amongst their ranks, but it is Ollie Watkins’ goals that have helped the Villains carry a real goal threat for Dean Smith’s men.
Leicester are enjoying another strong season and sit third, level on points with Man United. They have won eight of their 12 games on the road and have lost just once on their travels, so can be confident of securing another three-points.
Arsenal v Manchester City
Arsenal are the next side to attempt to stop the Manchester City juggernaut as the sides meet on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners have slipped down to tenth place after two recent defeats at Wolves and Aston Villa, but did beat Leeds 4-2 at the Emirates when last in league action. They are unbeaten in their last five games at home, but it will be a tough ask to maintain that form against City.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won their last 16 games in all competitions and their last 11 in the Premier League to open up a 10-point lead at the top. They will be confident of another win as they look to be marching on to another EPL title.
