There are some huge games in the race for the title and top four this weekend as leaders Chelsea travel to Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool at Anfield, Manchester City visit Bournemouth, Arsenal host Hull and Manchester United welcome Watford.
Burnley vs Chelsea:
Sean Dyche’s side will be relishing the chance to give another top side the run-around at Turf Moor on Sunday. Burnley have won their last five home matches and have the third-best home record in the division. This is going to be a really tough game for Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, but they are one side the Premier League you’d back to take a win here. Expect a tight affair.
Prediction – Burnley 0-1 Chelsea
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur:
Liverpool have not lost to Tottenham in the last nine meetings between the sides in all competitions and they have lost just once in their last 19 home games in the Premier League. Spurs travel to Anfield in great form, they have to win this game to keep their title hopes alive. But both sides have squads riddled with injury. Score draw.
Prediction – Liverpool 2-2 Spurs
Bournemouth vs Manchester City:
Eddie Howe has the tough task of welcoming Manchester City to the Vitality Stadium. City have just hit some form and look to have their season back on track. Bournemouth are without a win in their last five Premier League outings, a run that looks unlikely to come to an end here, with relegation still a concern for the Cherries.
Prediction – Bournemouth 1-3 City
Arsenal vs Hull City:
Arsene Wenger’s side have to win this game, it’s a simple as that. They face Hull who are now only one point away from being out of the relegation zone after a strong run of form under Marco Silva. Arsenal need to bounce back from their defeat to Chelsea last weekend and a big win here would calm some of the nerves around the ground.
Prediction: Arsenal 3-0 Hull
Manchester United vs Watford:
Jose Mourinho’s United side are now unbeaten in their last 15 Premier League games and it would be surprising to see that run ending this weekend at home to Watford. United’s main problem has been taking their chances, if they hit the ground running here it could be a big win. Watford are no pushovers, they’re sitting comfortably in mid-table and will look to frustrate here.
Prediction – United 3-1 Watford
