The logjam at the top of the Premier League table continues to be the talk of the soccer world. Liverpool’s draw against Manchester United last weekend surrendered the Reds’ lead at the top, as Arsenal usurped the No. 1 spot in the table. Meanwhile, Manchester City’s win over Crystal Palace ensured that Pep Guardiola’s side remained just one point back in their bid to win a fourth Premier League title in a row.

This weekend, Arsenal has the toughest game of those three, even though each of those sides is playing at home. The Gunners will play Aston Villa as Unai Emery’s side works to creep back into the top four. Winless in their last two Premier League games, the Villans conceded fourth to Tottenham over recent weeks. The likelihood of a win at Arsenal is bleak, but both sides need points to keep pace with their respective rivals to shape up an exciting game.

That said, Tottenham does not have an easy game. Spurs are active in the first game of the weekend on Saturday when they travel north to take on Newcastle. A turbulent season for the Magpies has not gone to plan for Eddie Howe, but that does not take away from the talent on the team. As Spurs looks to get back into the UEFA Champions League, coming away with something positive at St. James’ Park is a major step in the right direction.

Keeping an eye on the relegation race, there are no games involving two teams in that battle. Regardless, Everton’s recent two-point deduction makes its game against Chelsea that much more important, as it is now two points above the drop zone.
