Three games stand out in matchday 14 of the English Premier League this weekend. Although none of those involve two teams currently in the top four, there are great matchups nonetheless. However, all clubs are looking up at Arsenal after Manchester City drew with Liverpool this past weekend. The Gunners are home to Wolves with a chance to increase their lead at the top.
The highlight game of Saturday, though, is Manchester United’s trip to Newcastle. United has won three league games in a row to climb to sixth in the table. However, that form does not speak much about the Red Devils. After a comfortable win over Everton, for example, United cannot maintain two leads against Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League. A trip to St. James’ Park will be a stiff test for Erik ten Hag, who wants to build form.
On Sunday, Chelsea welcomes Brighton. Both sides are working to get back into European contention. However, that has not been smooth. Newcastle pounded Chelsea in the last matchday, and Brighton has just one win in its last four games. Chelsea is six points behind Brighton, which means this could be a crucial six-point swing for the Blues.
Then, the marquee game of the weekend rounds out the matchday’s action. Manchester City hosts Tottenham Hotspur. Just three games ago, Spurs was at the top of the table with Manchester City nipping at its heels. Three losses consecutively put a major hump in Spurs’ season. It is only four points behind league-leading Arsenal. However, a trip to Manchester City could spell four losses in a row.
