Fans of the English Premier League have the blessing of a full slate of midweek contests. After a hectic weekend in matchday 14, the festive season truly kicks in with 10 games Tuesday through Thursday for matchday 15. It could be a pivotal week, too, as clubs either look to keep form rolling or find it after tough results.

For example, one of the best games midweek is Wednesday’s game between Aston Villa and Manchester City. Last season’s treble winners have dropped points in three straight games, and that includes a 3-3 draw against Tottenham Hotspur. City’s run of games has not been easy, to be fair. However, eight goals against in the club’s last three games from Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs goes against the defensively sound Guardiola. Now, he and City travel to an Aston Villa side that is in the top four and just one point behind City.

At the same time, Manchester United hosts Chelsea in a game of two teams having disappointing seasons. Therefore, every point matters early on in the campaign for the Red Devils and the Blues. Chelsea’s win over Brighton in matchday 14 closed the gap with Manchester United, which lost at Newcastle. United is five points ahead of Chelsea in 10th. Meanwhile, it is five points behind Villa in fourth.

Rounding out the midweek action is Tottenham hosting West Ham in a London Derby. Despite the draw at Manchester City being a good result, Spurs have still dropped points in their last four games. In those four games, Tottenham has one point to fall out of the top four. West Ham has remained a strong side, as the Hammers sit ninth in the league table.
