Premier League fixtures: Arsenal vs Manchester City and more

As three clubs keep fighting for Premier League title, Arsenal have the last chance to stay in the leading group.

Arsenal vs Manchester City
The Gunners, who topped the table several weeks ago, have been in poor form in February and March and are now exposed to a real threat to miss on Champions League next season. Everton lie jut six points behind Arsenal and host them at Goodison Park in a week. However, Arsene Wenger now has a more significant task to hold in-form Manchester City at the Emirates. Manuel Pellegrini’s side have not conceded a goal in Premier League since 3 February and scored eight in the last two games, including three at Old Trafford on Tuesday. To make things worse for Arsene Wenger, he will miss plenty of players through injuries again, including Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil. Matija Nastasic and Sergio Aguero are major doubts for Manuel Pellegrini. Manchester City beat Arsenal 6-3 back in December at Etihad. The hosts have been poor against top sides this season and are likely to be beaten again.

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur
Liverpool have been outstanding this season under Brendan Rodgers, scoring an incredible 84 goals in 31 games and winning their last seven Premier League matches. They only left the pitch twice (against Arsenal and Southampton) without hitting the back of the net at least once. Their deadly striking duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have scored an astonishing 48 goals combined. Tottenham have had a shaky season and are prone to capitulating at the hands of top opposition, conceding four from Chelsea, five from Liverpool and eleven goals in two matches against Manchester City. They also lost both of North London derbies this season. Liverpool, who did play in Europe this season, have no injury concerns, while Tim Sherwood will need to assess availability of Vlad Chiriches, Etienne Capoue, Kyle Walker and Emmanuel Adebayor. Erik Lamela is sidelined.

This round will have several relegation battles, with Swansea hosting Norwich, Cardiff travelling to West Bromwich, Sunderland taking on West Ham. Stoke City host Hull City and could all but secure a place in next season’s Premier League.

Chelsea could extend their leadership with a victory at Selhurst Park, while Manchester United must beat Aston Villa at Old Trafford to save face after humiliating 3-0 defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City at Theatre of Dreams.
