Unfortunately, there are only seven games in the Premier League this weekend. With the FA Cup quarterfinals taking place, there are four teams partaking in the last eight from the Premier League. Those are the two Manchester clubs, Brighton and Fulham.
On the bright side, Manchester United was meant to play Brighton. So, there are only three games that are postponed. That does, however, take Liverpool and West Ham off the schedule, as the two had Fulham and City on the schedule, respectively.
That being said, the bottom half of the table has major intrigue this week. The teams placed 12th to 20th only have five points of separation. Somehow, though, there is only one game between teams in that pack. Leeds travels to Molineux to play Wolves. The Whites are in the relegation zone after two games without a win. Wolves, which has turned up the form under Julen Lopetegui, still remains in 13th, four points above Leeds.
The other game to keep an eye on is between Chelsea and Everton. Both clubs seem to be playing better as the new managers find some footing. Can Chelsea get some hope for a European spot, or does Everton continue its bid for survival?
Finally, the last game on the weekend is a London clash between league-leaders Arsenal and Crystal Palace. These two teams faced off in the season opener, which started this magical season for Arsenal.
