We go into the weekend’s fixtures with new leaders at the top of the Premier League after some surprising midweek results. Manchester City now sit top of the pile after a comfortable 5-0 win at West Brom, which coincided with a shock 2-1 defeat for Manchester United at home against Sheffield United. The race for Champions League football next season is also taking twists and turns with Leicester and Liverpool currently making up the top four.
Arsenal v Manchester United
Arsenal welcome Manchester United to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening with the Gunners looking to maintain their recent good form.
Mikel Arteta’s men are unbeaten in their last five games, winning four of them, which has seen move back into the top half of the Premier League. They have hit six goals in their last two games, including three in their last home game against Newcastle, and a further three at Southampton in an impressive midweek 3-1 win.
United arrive off the back of an incredible 2-1 home defeat against bottom side, Sheffield United. It was the Red Devils first loss in ten games, so they will be desperate to bounce back to winning ways as soon as possible having been in such good form.
Leicester City v Leeds United
Third placed Leicester City host Leeds on Sunday afternoon with the Foxes hoping to maintain their position in the title race.
A run of three wins in a row came to an end at Everton in midweek following an entertaining 1-1 draw, but Brendan Rodgers men could have taken all three points. Even though they will once again be without top scorer Jamie Vardy, the form of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes has kept the Foxes goals coming.
Leeds arrive at the King Power Stadium off the back of a 2-1 win at Newcastle in the week, which halted a run of two defeats on the bounce. They currently sit safe in mid-table but can pose a big threat to the home side and it is sure to be an open game with both sides looking to attack.
West Ham v Liverpool
There is a fascinating game on Sunday afternoon at the Olympic Stadium as an in-form West Ham welcome reigning champions, Liverpool.
West Ham are on a run of four wins in a row, which has seen them move up to fifth place, just two points behind Liverpool. David Moyes men have won their last two home games against Burnley and West Brom and backed those results up with an excellent 3-2 win at Crystal Palace in midweek.
Liverpool have been having a well-documented wobble as they hope to defend their title but turned in a much more impressive performance with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Thursday. The Reds created plenty of chances and looked much more like the team that raced to the title last season. Jurgen Klopp’s men will need to keep on winning though, as they could be seven points behind Man City by the time they kick off against the Hammers.
