There are just six games remaining for most Premier League teams. Although, some have seven games left like Everton or Chelsea. Then, some have just five left, like a struggling Manchester United or West Ham.
The differences in games only adds to the plotlines as the season’s end nears. Starting with the big one, the EPL title race appears to be coming down to the wire. Manchester City holds a one-point edge over Liverpool with the sides level on games played.
This weekend, both sides have fairly straight forward games. First off, Manchester City hosts a Watford side all but assured of relegation. Liverpool takes on Everton in the Merseyside Derby. While it is not a major game in terms of each team’s form, both sides have major stakes at hand. Remember, Everton is entrenched in the relegation scrap just a point above 18th-spot Burnley.
For European qualification, there are two massive games. Arsenal hosts Manchester Untied at the Emirates. Arsenal’s midweek win over Chelsea worked wonders for its Champions League charge. On the other hand, Manchester United continues to limp into the end of the season, coming off a 4-0 battering from Liverpool.
Another game to keep an eye on is West Ham traveling to London rival Chelsea. West Ham is not the same side that sat in the top four earlier in the season. Yet, at the same time, Chelsea looks to be open for the taking. Chelsea lost its last three home games in all competitions while conceding 11 to scoring just four. Chelsea retains its third-place spot, and it should be secure in that position. However, the five teams trailing Chelsea have everything at stake.
