The headline act of the Premier League weekend comes at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal hope to make a statement win against the former champions Liverpool.
With a whole host of matches up and down the country, we take a look at the pick of the action below.
The Blues hoping to build on their unbeaten run
Chelsea will look to keep their winning streak going when they take on second-bottom West Brom. The Blues have been in flying form since Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard, and they have now won four home games in a row. They take on Porto in the last eight of the Champions League on Wednesday, so the German may be tempted to rotate his squad. However the west London side are still heavy 1/5 favourites to bag another three points and continue their push for a top four finish.
The Baggies meanwhile look destined for the drop having failed to score in their last three games. They are 10 points adrift of safety with just nine games to play, and it’s hard to see them adding to their haul at Stamford Bridge.
The Foxes welcome leaders City as they look to secure top four
A clash to savour at the King Power Stadium as third-placed Leicester host champions-elect Manchester City. The Foxes thrashed Pep Guardiola’s men 5-2 at the Etihad in the early weeks of the season – though plenty of water has gone under the bridge since then. Brendan Rodgers’ side are still having a fine season, though, and are in a commanding position as they chase a top four finish.
The Sky Blues continue to march towards another Premier League title, and a win away at a strong Leicester side would virtually seal the deal. There are often goals when these two meet, and both teams to score is 17/20.
Liverpool visit The Gunners
Two Premier League giants clash at the Emirates Stadium in a mouth-watering clash on Saturday night. Arsenal have been in good form of late and came back from 3-0 to snatch a point away at high-flying West Ham before the international break. Their chances of finishing in one of the European places this season looks slim, but they are still a dangerous side on their day.
Despite their woes at Anfield in 2021, Liverpool have remained in decent form away from home.
The Reds 1-0 victory at Wolves last time out was their third straight away win in all competitions and they need to keep up the momentum going into the final weeks of the season, with a top four finish on the line.
There have been over 2.5 goals between these two in the last four meetings, and it is 4/6 to be five in a row.
