If Southampton can secure a first win in three it’ll boost their chances of finishing above West Brom in eighth. However, Hull head to St Mary’s with confidence they can avoid relegation with City ensuring they’ll remain in 17th with a win whatever Swansea, 18th, do.

Stoke could climb into the top-10 if the visit of West Ham ends with the Potters collecting all three points. The Hammers, 14th, would move above their hosts – into a potential top-10 position themselves – if they were victorious at the bet365 Stadium.

It’s probably a case of when and not if for Sunderland now as far as relegation is concerned. The Black Cats could have this confirmed at the weekend, which is still likely in the coming weeks even if they can record a win over Bournemouth, 13th, at the Stadium of Light.

West Brom, eighth, bid to end a four game winless run – including a hat trick of successive defeats – when Leicester – without a win in three themselves – visit the Hawthorns as the Baggies look to maintain an advantage over the clubs behind them.

Despite a midweek defeat in the visit of title-chasing Tottenham the advantage Crystal Palace have on the bottom-three should be enough to keep them in the Premier League. A win over Burnley, 16th, should all but secure this. But the Clarets couldn’t pick a better moment to get a first away win as that would take them above their hosts and could ease concerns they have of an instant return to the Championship.

Manchester United, pushing for a top-four finish, could move as high as third, albeit temporarily, with a win in the visit of Swansea on Sunday lunchtime. The Swans, depending on Hull’s result, could move out of the bottom-three with a shock victory at Old Trafford.

Everton will finish a minimum of seventh but still have aspirations of finishing higher but to have any chance of this the Toffees will have to overcome leaders Chelsea at Goodison Park. The Blues will bid for a win to extend the lead over Tottenham to seven points once again, ahead of Spurs’ North London derby with Arsenal later that afternoon.

Middlesbrough, in desperate need of the points, aim to follow up a Tees-Wear derby win over Sunderland with another in the visit of Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, a Boro win and an unlikely survival bid remains on. However, City also need the victory with Manchester united and Arsenal pushing them for their spot, fourth.

Regardless of the outcome in this game Tottenham are near certainties to finish above North London rivals Arsenal for the first time since the 1994-95 season. But if Spurs are to take their bid to be crowned champions into the remaining games a win in the visit of Arsene Wenger’s team to White Hart Lane will be needed – the Gunners’ own slim top-four ambition require a victory too so it could be a game where both sides are going all-out for the points.

Watford’s bid to finish in the top-10 – even that might not be enough to keep Walter Mazzarri in his job? – would be improved with a win in the visit of Champions League hopefuls Liverpool. The Reds can’t afford to drop too many more points or both Manchester sides could still fancy their chances of both finishing in the top-four?

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.
