It’s the Return of the Premier League and it Could be a Decisive Weekend of Action


After a hiatus of two weeks, where most of the top players have been jetting off around the globe to represent their countries in a number of friendly games, the Premier League returns to action this weekend and it will continue right through until the end of the season from here on in.

This is always the most exciting part of the season as not only are top trophy winners decided both domestically and in Europe, but in addition the race for the Champions League places and the fight against relegation into the Championship will also conclude, leaving three teams facing a long hard 46-game fight to get back into the Premier League promised land next season.

Key Games this weekend

Given that almost every team in the Premier League is embroiled either in a race for the top four, trying to win the title, or trying their best to avoid relegation (with just a few teams in the limbo of being safe, but not being able to drastically improve their position) we’re going to band together some of the biggest and most influential games this weekend.

Securing the Title

  • Everton v Manchester City

Man City head to Goodison Park on Saturday evening, a ground that they have not enjoyed a huge amount of success on, to face an Everton team that are the only team to have earned a point against them at the Etihad this season. However, Pep Guardiola’s men also know that two more wins, one here and one at home to Manchester United next week, will give them the title with six games to spare.

Everton’s home form though over the past few months has improved significantly, but crucially they have drawn just once and lost three of their matches against four of the top six (they face City this weekend and have a game against Liverpool at Goodison next weekend).

For me, that says to me the Toffees don’t have the quality here and if I were a betting man I’d back City to get the win. I can see Everton grabbing a goal, but I think City will get at least two, if not three to claim the win that they want to set up a season-defining clash at the Etihad next weekend.

Race for the Top Four

  • Crystal Palace v Liverpool

  • Manchester United v Swansea City

  • Chelsea v Tottenham

There’s three crucial games for the top four, with 2nd and 3rd in action first with Man Utd facing Swansea at 3pm just a few hours after Liverpool travel to London to face Crystal Palace. The Anfield side won’t enjoy their tip to Selhurst Park and their record against Palace isn’t great over recent times, despite a 1-0 win at Anfield over them earlier this season. That said, Liverpool’s attacking trio give them a chance against any team and with Palace needing a win, I think that plays into Liverpool’s hands to get a vital 3 points here.

United though should be too strong for Swansea at home as Jose Mourinho seeks to get his team ready ahead of a clash next week away to Manchester City. The title may be gone, but if Mourinho can spoil the party by becoming the first team to win away to City this season, he would absolutely love the opportunity to do so. I can see United sweeping Swansea aside relatively easily here.

The Chelsea v Spurs game is a real tough one to call. Spurs have the worst record of any team in the Premier League away to Chelsea but at the moment, they are playing by far the better and most consistent football. Chelsea on the other hand lack consistency and a lot of the drive and passion seems to have ebbed away from the team of late. Although. History goes against it, I really fancy Spurs to cause an upset here.
