Another potentially fascinating weekend of Premier League football is nearly upon us – we preview the upcoming action.
Liverpool travel to Norwich City for the Saturday lunchtime game and will be desperate to respond following the weekend-ruining defeat at home to Man United last Sunday.
The Canaries will provide a stern test for Jurgen Klopp‘s side and anything other than victory for the Reds will see their top-four hopes further fizzle out.
The Carrow Road showdown gets the weekend action up and running, in what promises to be another unpredictable round of Premier League fixtures.
This is the best chance the Gunners have of beating the Blues in a number of years, and everything points towards a home win.
It would be typical of Arsenal to blow their chance of beating their rivals, but given their form and title aspirations, it would be a surprise if Arsene Wenger’s side failed to win on Sunday afternoon.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men face a tough trip to West Ham on Saturday evening, however, which could well see them drop points.
The same applies to Tottenham, who travel a relatively short distance to south London to face Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles may be in poor form – they haven’t scored for five consecutive league matches – but they will give Spurs a tough game.
The Red Devils will be confident of picking up another three points, which would strengthen their top-four hopes in the process.

Fantasy Football Tips
The Baggies host bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa on Saturday, and they will likely nick a win and keep a clean-sheet. Selecting goalkeeper Boaz Myhill in your fantasy football team makes perfect sense.
One of Man United‘s more unsung players this season has been Daley Blind, with the Dutchman playing with authority and class in a fairly unsuited centre-back role.
When fit and firing, Sergio Aguero is one of the finest strikers on the planet, and he has started to show signs of finding top form in recent weeks.
His crucial winning header at Watford, and double against Palace, were proof of his brilliance, and he will fancy his chances of finding the net at West Ham. Get him in your team, even if he is on the expensive side.
Jamie Vardy has hit something of a goal drought, following his incredible achievements earlier in the season, but he should not be written off.
The Englishman is due a goal, and he may well stop the rot at home on Stoke on Saturday. The fact that he may now be on penalty duty too, with Riyad Mahrez missing his spot-kick at Aston Villa, only heightens his chances of scoring.
