The action gets under way with a potential season defining game for both sides. Chelsea bid to extend their nine point lead at the top with Arsenal knowing defeat at Stamford Bridge – if this isn’t already the case – will mean the Gunners’ title ambitions are dead and buried.

Crystal Palace collected a first win under Sam Allardyce in midweek but it wasn’t enough to take them out of the relegation zone. If he can record a first Selhurst Park win against bottom of the league Sunderland this could change. The Black Cats haven’t won in six with them five points from safety.

A six game unbeaten run is something Everton will look to extend at Goodison Park against AFC Bournemouth. The Cherries haven’t won in four but are still clear of the bottom 3 yet that could change if they lost again on Saturday.

Hull collected a potentially crucial point at Old Trafford in midweek after drawing at Manchester United. The Tigers host an out of sorts Liverpool – who haven’t won in three in the league – at the KCOM Stadium looking to close the four points between them and safety.

Five defeats in the last six has seen Southampton slide down the table. West Ham – who have lost three of their last five – visit St Mary’s with both sides looking for a win to ease potential relegation concerns.

Watford recorded a first win – going away from Arsenal with a victory – in eight so they will look to follow that up with another against Burnley. The Clarets’ recent run of league form would – if it carried on – end in another defeat at Vicarage Road.

A top 10 place is being comfortably held by West Brom with Stoke a place below Albion. The Potters are unbeaten in four and could close to within a point of the 8th place side with a win at the Hawthorns.

The late kick off will see Tottenham looking to close the gap on Chelsea – should they slip up against Arsenal – or at least put it back to nine points. Middlesbrough head to White Hart Lane without a win in six – three have been lost – and only two points clear of the bottom two heading into the weekend.

Sunday will see the points of importance at both ends of the table when Manchester City host Swansea. City will be looking to potentially move back into a Champions League place whereas the Swans will look for a third straight win to ensure they stay outside of the relegation zone.

If Leicester can’t end a four game winless run – they’ve lost three in a row – at the King Power Stadium against Manchester United the champions could end the weekend in the bottom 3. United face the Foxes having drawn the last three in the league but they are on a long unbeaten Premier League run.

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.
