Premier League games flank either side of the New Year’s Eve festivities. While there is no top-of-the-table clash like last week, several games stand out amongst the rest. The action starts with a full slate of games on Saturday. Luton Town, fresh off back-to-back victories, travels to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. The Blues have been inconsistent this season. Perhaps the win last time out against Crystal Palace can bump Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the right direction.

On Monday, Liverpool hosts Newcastle with both sides in need of points. Liverpool has not been losing games like Newcastle, but Jürgen Klopp’s side has missed key opportunities to get points against top opposition. The Reds are at the top of the table. However, recent draws against Manchester United and Arsenal have kept that lead at two points. Newcastle is in desperation mode already. The Magpies have lost four of their last five league games. As a result, West Ham, Manchester United and Brighton jumped Newcastle in the table.

Rounding out matchday 20’s action is a matchup between two of those teams to jump Newcastle. West Ham United, which just knocked off Arsenal at the Emirates, returns home with a crucial game against Brighton. David Moyes’ side is now a real candidate to finish in the top four of the Premier League table. Currently, the Hammers are four points adrift of the top four, and Manchester City in fourth has a game in hand.
