This could be a title-winning weekend for Man City, but there is also plenty to play for at the other end of the table.
There are 10 matches to look forward to over the next three days—here’s the best and worst of the imminent action.
Ones To Watch: Tottenham vs. Man City & Crystal Palace vs. Brighton
It hasn’t been a happy period in an otherwise excellent season for City, following defeat to United and Champions League elimination at the hands of Liverpool.
The title is still ready to be awarded to them whenever they fancy it, however, and their time may come away to Spurs on Saturday night.
Wembley would be a fitting place for Pep Guardiola’s men to seal glory, but the hosts are a top team in their own right these days and will fancy their chances of victory.
From our perspective, we should be cheering on City, with Spurs level on points with the Reds and with the luxury of a game in hand.
Both sides play good football, which should make this an entertaining contest, and if City do get that all-important win, hats off to them.
Let’s see how many goals Harry Kane will attempt to claim!
Earlier in the day, Crystal Palace and Brighton lock horns at Selhurst Park in ‘The Rivalry People Didn’t Realise Was A Rivalry.’
There is genuine hatred between the two clubs and Brighton would love to hamper Palace’s bid for safety, with the Eagles desperate for points.
Whatever happens, this should be a really feisty affair and, in terms of the relegation fight, three points for Palace would be huge.
Brighton should just about be safe, regardless of the result.
One To Avoid: Man United vs. West Brom
United’s win at City last Saturday has probably wrapped up second place for them, despite Liverpool and Spurs’ best efforts.
They do not, therefore, have much to play for in the league, making their remaining fixtures relatively meaningless, barring some sort of collapse that allows their rivals back in.
On Sunday afternoon, they host a West Brom side on the verge of the drop, which makes the fixture a terrible choice for Sky’s Super Sunday coverage.
This will be about as predictable a game as you could wish to see, with United winning by a comfortable margin, and playing sleep-inducing football at the same time.
The Baggies look resigned to their fate, and anything other than a limp, lifeless showing from them would be a surprise.
Do something more productive with your Sunday afternoon.
Potential Upset: Southampton vs. Chelsea
Liverpool’s draw in the Merseyside derby gave Chelsea an opportunity to make ground in the top-four battle, but thankfully, they blew it.
Saints are now in serious danger of a return to the Championship, and they will be scrapping for every point between now and May 13.
The visitors are still favourites to win at St Mary’s, but a draw or possibly even a defeat would come as no great shock, as their league campaign threatens to peter out.
